improvements for the use on the racetrack. Available for the following Porsche
models: The Porsche Track Precision App is available for all Boxster, Cayman
and 911 models, as well as for all GT vehicles with mode...
Latest version needs a lot of work, still looks like a beta full of bugs
Just opened the latest version of the app that automatically download 3 days ago. I can no longer export video’s, the download locks up at around 75%. The replay function now puts the speed in KPM and not MPH and there does not appear to be any way to change the settings., The rev counter for some reason now shown my RPM on a Cayman GT4 shifting at near 10,000 RMP (I don’t think the warranty folks would like that. The replay defaults to the fastest lap and it’s not intuitive on how you get to the start of the session. I’ll be heading to a track event this week will let you know how it works to capture events. Also a large proton of the app descriptions are in German. Update: despite a response from Porsche to provide assistance on the App issues, they were less than helpful. Went to another track event yesterday and the App has completely stopped working. The events are recorded by cannot be viewed, when you attempt to analyze or look at the event, the App crashes. Absolutely useless as it stands right now.
It used to be buggy; now it won’t connect to my car
I own a 2015 GT3. I was able to get the app to connect and work in 2018. At the beginning of 2018 it would occasionally crash. After a revision or two, it worked well. I attempted to use the app last month (Apr 2019) but was unable to connect the car to my phone via Wi-Fi. The password is GT3[VIN] but after 10 attempts—no joy. I closed all apps, restarted the iPhone X, deleted and reinstalled the app... I cannot get my phone to connect to the car. If you are on the fence about optioning Sport Chrono to use this app, I would not plan on it working. June 2019: The forums led me astray—the x is really an x in the password GTx[VIN]. The new interface is going to take some getting used to but now you can view video as you analyze data. One dislike is when you create a video, it displays your speed in kph and it doesn’t appear you can change it. Please make this more English friendly.
Seems like a developer app
Perhaps 3.0.2 is a better interface but this still seems like a developer app that wasn’t quite ready for release. For example, the ‘preferences’ section is almost entirely in German and only C/ KPH are displayed on the video review (full screen video that looks like the cockpit view) even though I have selected F/ MPH as my analysis setting and English (US) as my settings. I’m glad the app now supports 4K video. The app’s video resolution selection is slow because I can select four video resolutions at one time and the app cannot decide which resolution to choose. The app update corrupted part of a video file so now that video stops playing in the app after approximately nine seconds.
Porsche Track Precision App
I enjoy the app when it is working properly. But until very recently, I have found that the app has a lot of bugs. It is very frustrating when you think you have made a good run to have the app quit just before reaching the end of your run. I have repeatedly deleted the app when it has problems and downloaded the app and recorded my coarse again. It always worked when recording the track for the first time but would often have problems on subsequent runs. My latest download has been working well on more runs than ever before. I will keep my fingers crossed !
Update not working properly
The app actually worked flawlessly during my 6/9 trackday in my GT4. Since the update the overlay data seems to be off (at first i thought it was in kph but even that doesnt translate properly) and the rpm is way off (has my car revving to 9k rpm). I also cannot export any video as it keeps getting stuck at 83%. Any advice would be appreciated. Thanks! Thank you for your response. Just to respond to your response I have 160GB free on my phone...I also do not believe I am the only user having exporting issues.
Works well now. I wish there was an option to record the final lap video even if the lap is not finished (pit in before start finish). This would help with reviewing mistakes when “Off track excursions” happen. As of now if someone makes a mistake and goes off track, you are unable to review data if the lap is not completed (but a driver would usually return to the pit and not pass start\finish, so no data or video would be saved from the last lap...
Cannot export video or data - keeps crashing
The application keeps crashing on my iPhone X (iOS 12.3.1) and I’m unable to export videos or data - although it did work once. Be aware that when the video does export the overlay will only display kph rather than mph- here in the US, the analysis is in mph. There needs to be work to have the data/video export consistently On a positive note: I was at Sonoma Raceway on July 3rd 2019 and the autostart on the course worked flawlessly- much better than the old versions The video overlay is a little too large and obscured the track - a smaller overlay would be much better
Upload track and data
Version 2.4.3 has become much more stable. I’ve given it a 4 star rating, it would be 5, but I believe all users of this app would like the ability to save the track like Harry’s Laptimer. It would also be nice to keep the videos and data loaded on the app, but it’s deleted and reloaded... all is lost. The app typically fails to work after an update. This requires the delete/reload action.
Track Precision App
Update The new app is completely useless and no one from Porsche cares. The previous apps were great and I spent a lot of time using them to analyze my data to improve my skills. You should have waited on releasing the ‘new’ Apps and at least warned people not to upgrade to these less functional programs. The new iPad app has no analytics which is useless. Yes, this is a ‘future’ feature but again it’s useless without it. The iPhone app doesn’t have English units anymore, word Foreign language stuff, is too small to see (hence the recent investment in an iPad) and in my opinion the new app has completely missed the mark. I called 1-800-Porsche and contacted my dealer which were both useless endeavors. Please provide a method to restore the previous versions of the Apps. If not, I guess it’s back to Harry’s even though I spent thousands of dollars on the track app option for my GT4.
The 3.04 update addressed the issues I was having with export of higher lap (7+) runs, great! This app is invaluable for exporting to circuit tools to see the techniques you are working on (trail braking, threshold braking, etc). My only wish would be for the lap timer in the car to dump directly to an SD card, bypassing the need to do the WIFI/phone/export/load to laptop process.
This app has improved with V2 but still needs work. The two biggest issues I have are random crashes when recording (on IPhone X/GT3 - crashes 1 out of every 3 track sessions) and it will not display lap times when not on a "known" track. The second issue seems ridiculous given the car has a lap timer built in but you have to manually trigger each lap - which is much less safe than the app automatically showing you lap times.
Good but Buggy
I’m using the Track Precision app with a 2015 GT3 and iPhone X. After some initial difficulty re-connecting to the car’s WiFi after the latest app update, I was able to successfully record a new track (Putnam Park, IN) not in the app’s track inventory. Greatly appreciate the analysis tools. Frustrated that I can’t export either data or video. The kph/mph mixup ought to be a minor fix. The video rpm readout is optimistic, sometimes approaching 10k rpm.
Although the app appears under the CarPlay menu on the phone, the icon do not appear on the PCM screen (992 MY20). The recognition of where the start line is and automatic lap recording is hit or miss. External GPS recognition to improve signal doesn’t work, even using a iOS compatible GPS device. All in all, it’s a good idea with a better looking interface but doesn’t work for the most part. Free apps like track genius or paid like Harry’s are dependable. This is not.
Please bring back external video export
Please bring back the capability of exporting the data overlay visuals on external video devices like GoPros and other action cameras. The previous versions were able to do this and that was key in getting quality video with using your app. Also, some of the data export is a bit off such as the maximum speed, it said i hit 201MPH at Laguna Seca while only doing a 1:42 lap time.
New release removes most of the iPad functionality
It's always been a bit fickle with crashes etc but worked. The iPad analysis was one of the most useful functions, with the new ’improved version’ it just says analysis is, ’coming soon’ in the ’next version’. In short this version shouldn't have been released until it was as complete at the version it replaced. It's a big step backwards.
