RaceCapture app 2.4.0

v2.4.0 RaceCapture app brings one key feature plus a host of usability improvements. Read on:

Upgrade your firmware!

Super important! Be sure to upgrade your firmware to 2.19.0 so app-base logging continues to operate correctly.

Improvements to RaceCapture app logging

The RaceCapture app now logs data according to the Automatic Control settings found under Setup.

How it previously worked

Prior to v2.4.0, the app automatically triggers logging when you enter the dashboard, and stops when you leave the dashboard for 1 minute.

How the new logging works

Now, with v2.4.0, logging will be synchronized with the firmware auto start/stop logic. This is an important, long overdue feature so your log files are more precisely aligned with automatically triggered video recordings.

This new in-app logging feature requires this new 2.19.0 firmware, so upgrading is very important for those that log data within the app. (Note – This does not change SD card logging in RaceCapture/Pro, PodiumConnect, or RaceCapture/Apex)

The new app logging now includes a new toolbar icon that lights up when session recording is active:

Logging behavior is now controlled by the Automatic Control settings under Setup:

Usability improvements for channel editor and dashboard alerts

We’ve reworked dashboard alerts to work better on small screens, and overall make the interface more responsive.

Analysis – Flow Gauge view now scrolls to accommodate additional panels

You might’ve noticed how the Flow Gauge views in analysis get progressively squished when adding panels. Now, they start scrolling vertically as needed – like you’d expect them to! This was especially needed for mobile / phone usage.

Available on all platforms. Seriously.

The RaceCapture app run basically everywhere. Download links:
