RaceCapture App 2.11.1 – the bugfix before the storm

Congrats to Andy on the 3rd place win at Evergreen AutoX!

We have a quick but important RaceCapture app release – read on!

New analog gauges!!1!!… SIKE

If you were hoping our new analog gauges were in this release… they’re not. But hang tight and watch for it in 2.12.0. It’s coming soon.

Sometimes App telemetry shows connected, but no data flows

We’ve fixed the intermittent but very impactful issue where app telemetry sometimes shows as ‘connected’ – but no data flows. 2.11.1 fixes this. If you broadcast telemetry via the app, you will absolutely want this update.

Usability improvements on mobile devices

Recently we found that customizing channel details was very difficult on mobile devices, especially when editing number fields. This was super annoying during a race! So, we fixed it!

More usability fixes

See the full changelog, at the end of this post to see what else we improved and fixed!

Available on all platforms. Seriously.

The RaceCapture app runs basically everywhere. If you’re on mobile, it probably auto-updated to the latest version!
