This app is for anyone who wants to spend all day at the track squinting at their phone and trying to figure out why their sensors aren’t working instead of driving.

I’m completely blown away by the features and functionality of this app, and the documented support. There are so many things you can do with it, an incredible array of supported accessory devices, and with all the complexity available there is documentation and online support that makes it easy to work with. Best value it track software out there.

I want to return this. Where’s the “give me back my money” button? So frustrating.

Been a user for few years and it’s quite honestly one of the best lap timer solutions (and not just among mobile apps). Other professional setups will cost you over $1000 when you factor in hardware but this app will fine on its own give you nearly same level of data acquisition. Best of all is Harry’s dedication to the community. He personally responds to all troubleshooting requests despite the majority of questions being repeat asks already covered in his FAQ and provides regular feature updates to the software. Anyone complaining about user difficulty didn’t spend the 5 mins to read the user guide.

Let's see: Awful interface, very unstable, exceptionally difficult to use, inaccurate, full of bugs, overly complex, expensive. These are some adjective that describe the app. Only one tutorial that is available online that is both outdated and useless. Great idea for an app awful execution

This seems expensive for an iPhone app, but you're basically turning your iPhone into a $1000+ racing telemetry unit. I haven't tried the video overlay function yet, but if it works as advertised, (and by all reports, it does so quite well...), you're getting the equivalent of a $2000+ system. Kind of a no-brainer. Costs roughly gas money for half-a-dozen laps around my home track. If I had ANY complaint at all, navigation through all the various feature menus is a touch confusing -- but I think that's mostly because this thing is so crazy packed with features that it's hard to organize all of it into a logical format. If you look back at all the version releases, it keeps doing more and more. If he adds any more features, it's liable to drive the car for you! Phenomenal app. If you've got an iPhone and even do one HPDE/PDX/Track Day, you should have already downloaded this thing...

This app is one of the most amazing apps available for the iOS platform. The amount of functionality it provides eclipses what you'd expect on a desktop application, let alone a mobile device. Bottom line is, if you want to record vehicle data, either on the track or street, and combine that with video, this app can drive it all. Issues? Harry maintains a great forum for his products and is extremely responsive. The amount he charges for these apps is a complete bargain.

The most irritating thing is that this seems to be the best app for this sort of thing. The user interface is some sick, cruel joke. The app locks up from time to time. The list of tracks truncated the useful information (Buttonwillow clockwise vs counter clockwise). The settings are impossible to understand. The problem is, if you can get it set up and working the results are brilliant. The overlay of the track map, accelerometer and speed over video are great. Unfortunately, you can't hit a button to automatically overlay ever lap, you have to manually go through and overlay each one. Adding insult to injury, the overlay settings are reset every time you go in to overlay, so you have to remember every time to reset the lead in and out to zero and disable that stupid count-down thing. Trying to load maps is an excercise in frustration. First of all, I'm usually near a track when I want to load it, why not show me the nearby tracks? When tracks nearby have variants, the most important part of the track name is the part that differs (for Thunderhill, is this with the bypass or without? For Buttonwillow, is this clockwise or counter clockwise?). The track list shows the names and truncates the interesting bits. Tapping on the track usually results in loading the details page instead of loading the track.

Attempted to log lap times at ButtonWillow raceway. Would not recognize the track, and app kept crashing. Worst $$$ spent

I am indeed an admitted Petrolhead, and as such, was looking for a way to get data displayed on my GoPro videos of track days. I cannot believe there is any app better than this one. The richness of this app continues to surprise me. Tying devices together like an OBD II plug, external GPS, GoPro Hero3 camera, is no easy feat. Granted some of the features are a bit difficult to find, but they are there. I feared when rendering an overlay onto a 2GB GoPro video on my iPhone 5, but the stability of the app is top notch. Great job, Harry! I'm now a big fan and will evangelize this app to my Petrolhead friends!!
