RaceCapture app: Analysis beta, dashboard and core improvements
A number of improvements, mostly around the Beta analysis features but also in the core system and dashboard mode have been added. Get it for Windows / OSX from our software downloads section. 1.4.2 is available as Beta in the Google Play store. Instructions on participating in the beta.
Analysis: track map legends
Now you’ll know what colored track map path represents the selected lap in the view by showing a legend. Also applies to heatmap mode!
Analysis: Auto selection of channels
If you select a lap and no channels are selected, it will automatically select one for you – namely Speed – saving you a step.
Analysis: Show GPS trace even if no track map
Got some lap or run data from a track that has no track map? You’ll still see the GPS trace. Try this with some auto-x runs!
Dashboard: Show only active channels when customizing guages
Only show active channels when configuring gauges – this helps find the channel you want, fast.
There’s a number of stability and performance improvements in there as well; here’s the big list with all of the improvements:
==1.4.2== * Connect to the first RaceCapture device it can detect, regardless of the name provided * Improve analysis data query performance; don't block user interface for long operations; show spinner * Improve load time by targeting Android 4.4 / API level 19 * Add selected track name to analysis map view * Added debugging option for API messages * Draw GPS path correctly if no track map is loaded * Automatically select a default channel (Speed) as needed * Only show active channels in dashboard channel selector view * Prevent status querying thread from multiplying when re-connect occurs * Show a lap/color trace legend for selected laps * Show a heatmap color legend when heatmap channels are enabled * Make it easier to differentiate heatmap paths by drawing them at varying widths * Add app version to status page * Firmware update screen improvements (show reminder to save config before updating) * Automatically extend min/max values upon importing analysis data * Made app exit more cleanly / address exceptions on program exit
RaceCapture/Pro MK1 firmware
Showing more love for MK1, we’ve rolled in a number of changes seen in MK2 2.8.7. MK1 2.8.6 firmware has notable fixes around lap timing, log file formatting and predictive timing. Get it in our software downloads section!
As a reminder, MK1 and MK2 are on different paths now, so version numbers will increment separately as needed.
=== 2.8.6 === * Report correct min/max values in logfile * Fix getLuaSpeed method in LUA to return value in MPH instead of KPH. * Update telemetry destination to better work with web caching services. * Fixes a bug in start logic in the lap_stats code and adds 12 new unit tests to better ensure the stability of that code. * Properly handle analog linear scaling offset value * Fix predictive time unit by having it return 0 when not in operation. Otherwise it can return invalid data.
