It´s possible to disable auto-start?

Post by PitrsRS »

Hi Harry, just a thought.

It´s possible, even temporarily, disable auto start function?

Why I´m asking. When I was at trackday and I have parked car next to pitlane, I had car close to finish line. I left phone in car with running app and app went mad in that moment. It repeately started lap time even if I standed still, and it created many "fake" laps.

I think it would be great if "auto start" feature will be active only if app detects start/finish line plus if app recognize motion (via GPS or gyro)

Or just add a button (or click-box in settings like with manual timing) to manually turn off "auto-start". :)

What´s your opinion about this?

BTW if i check hall of fame of that racing circuit, i think more people had this problem. There is a lot of lap times with times like 1,2 or 20 seconds which is nonsense

Hello,

Please check if Trigger Detection / Allow Low Speeds is checked in Expert Settings. By default, LapTimer will not trigger at all while standing still.
