Availability and pricing

The 3.5G telemetry is a $159.95 option on top of the base RaceCapture/Pro MK2 and is the recommended option for applications in North America. For worldwide coverage, the 2.5G module is required. The new telemetry option is available right now for all of our RaceCapture/Pro telemetry packages .

Features

Faster telemetry startup

You’ll have a faster start up and acquisition time – about 10 seconds from power up to transmitting telemetry, providing you’re in a good coverage area.

Sub-second latency

This was most striking for us during the testing phase. Under reasonable network conditions you’ll typically less than a second of delay between real-life and what you see on your telemetry view. Yeah, we know you want to see this for yourself – when you do, watch for your car on the front straight, then glance down to your telemetry dashboard to see where your car is – it’ll be tracking right along where you expect it on the front straight of the GPS map.  This cloud is race-car fast!

Better coverage for North America

With this newer tech, AT&T, T-Mobile, and other GSM based carriers will provide better and more consistent coverage wherever you race.

Headroom for faster telemetry rates

With data rates up to 7.2 Mb/s (downlink) and 5.76 Mb/s (uplink) you’ll be ready for faster telemetry rates and larger channel counts, once we make those services available. You’ll still benefit from the extra headroom at the current 10hz data rates when network conditions are marginal.

How to get it

Upgrade your current telemetry

We designed the 3.5G module to fit exactly in the same spot as the current 2.5G module, allowing upgrades to existing MK2 systems. If you’re comfortable with a screwdriver we have the instructions on how to upgrade – just purchase the 3.5G upgrade in our storeMK1 users: sorry, the 3.5G option isn’t available for your systems.
