G-Circle is off 15 or 30 degrees clockwise from actual

Post by swbca3691 » Tue Jun 20, 2017 2:23 am

Android - latest Lap timer version.

I always make sure the G-force meter is centered before each session, and the phone is always facing straight down the track.
On one session videos display the G-Force vector is 15 degrees clockwise from where it should be.
The next session displays G-Force vector 30 degrees clockwise from correct.

Todays videos were personal best lap times so I would like to fix the overlays if possible.

What caused this. Never happened before over 3 years of frequent use.

Thanks

Please make sure you have LapTimer ‣ Administration ‣ Settings ‣ Acceleration ‣ Calibration set to Automatic Preset. When recording, make sure you have the phone in one of the positions shown in illustration #4 of LapTimer's Quick Reference. When recording video with the internal cam, the phone should point straight to driving direction, slightly down. When not recording video, the phone should be rotated towards yourself slightly.

To fix existing recordings, goto Lap List ‣ your lap ‣ Data Recordings ‣ Preview ‣ Charts ‣ G-G Chart and use the small buttons to fix rotation. There is a button that auto-rotates the G-G so it is aligned to your driving.
