Cutting edge features

From the hardware all the way to the touch-optimized RaceCapture App, both systems bring modern, easy to use features you’ll love.

Wireless everything

Everything is on-board! Both RaceCapture/Pro MK3 and RaceCapture/Apex include WiFi, Bluetooth and worldwide-capable 3.5G cellular telemetry (optional on MK3) – allowing you to stream lap times, sensor data, g-force and more your Android or iOS device and to your pit crew, race coach, or fans anywhere in the world using the on-board cellular telemetry.

Live streaming to Podium

podium
Live-stream your racing to Podium, where you can perform real-time analysis on engine, chassis, and driver performance. Share and compare your laps with friends, colleagues, and race coaches around the world.  Learn more at https://podium.live

RaceCapture App – included

Create your own dashboard and feed your sensor data to the gauges you customize.  Show predictive lap times with real-time +/- delta feedback vs. your best lap, and instantly review your laps right as you come off track. It’s all built-in to the RaceCapture app with user-friendly, touch optimized experience, and it’s easy to get set up and going!

The RaceCapture app works on the devices you love – with Android, iOS, Windows and OSX support. Monitor critical engine data in real time with your iPad or Android tablet standing right at your race car, or run it on a big screen with your Windows or OSX machine to analyze your lap data.

High performance GPS – built in

gps
With RaceCapture/Pro MK3 you get a high performance GPS module with native sample rates up to 50Hz. Position, speed, altitude, distance and GPS statistics are included.

Mission critical application?

RaceCapture/Apex takes GPS to a new level with an ultra-advanced multi-GNSS system that supports GPS/GLONASS/Galileo/BeiDou constellations. For mission critical applications, the built-in automatic dead-reckoning system compensates for signal fading due to terrain or interference! Native sample rates rates up to 20Hz are supported (up-sampled to 25Hz).

Predictive Lap Timing

With both systems you get built-in predictive lap timing streaming to the RaceCapture app for instant in-car feedback, or to your pit crew so they can follow along for real-time coaching. With 100’s of tracks already available worldwide.

Plus, with the built-in track mapping capabilities, you can be assured you can roll up to your favorite track and get the lap times and statistics you need.

Analog and Digital inputs with flexible GPIO output capabilities

Map any sensor with 8 external 0-5v analog inputs with 12 bit ADC resolution; connect enginge RPM or measure 4 wheel speeds using the 4 RPM or frequency inputs, and use 3 general purpose I/O ports for low speed inputs or controlling alarms, lights, or other accessories up to 1A. (open drain)

6 Axis IMU

accel_gyro
Get 3-axis G-force plus Yaw / Pitch and Roll using the on-board high performance 6 axis Inertial Measurement Unit (IMU) – use it to analyze peak cornering G’s, or detect oversteer / understeer situations.

Dual CAN bus

can_obdii
Two CAN 2.0 compliant channels are available, providing baud rates up to 1MBPS. CAN bus data can be mapped to channels using built in OBD-II, direct CAN channel mapping, or custom logic mapping via Lua scripting.

Software controlled CAN termination

A RaceCapture exclusive: with a flip of a switch in the RaceCapture App you can enable or disable built-in CAN termination – no external resistors to add, switches to flip, or jumpers to set.

Powerful ECU integration

In addition to CAN OBDII support, RaceCapture/Pro MK3 also supports mapping of channels from CAN data streams, allowing direct integration with CAN enabled ECU such as Motec, Link, AEM, Megasquirt – including direct integration to OEM-specific CAN networks, such as found on the BMW E46.  You’ll be able to map data from two different CAN bus channels for maximum flexibility.

GoPro™  Camera Control

Use the built-in WiFi capabilities to control a WiFi enabled GoPro camera using a speed-based trigger, allowing precise synchronization between data and video – making it simple to import into your favorite race video rendering software, like RaceRender!

 Extensibility through Lua Scripting

You don’t have to be an embedded programmer! Design your own custom behaviors using the simple on-board Lua scripting. Trigger a fan or pump based on sensor readings, activate warning lights, create real-time calculated channels, communicate with ECUs and other devices using CAN and RS232 serial communications. The sky’s the limit!

Draw inspiration from a library of pre-made examples, and share your own ideas and creations to our community forums.

Convenient wiring and connections

Both RaceCapture/Pro MK3 and RaceCapture/Apex provide all connections on one side of the unit, allowing for a clean installation. All connections on RaceCapture/Pro MK3 are fully labeled, and RaceCapture/Apex’s sealed Deutsch connectors gives you IP65 protection against the harshest racing conditions
