Based on a post in a different thread, I guess this question is answered... The config file that you save from the app has more stuff (dash layouts and popup alert settings). However, the settings that are saved on the race capture (in my case a rcp mk2) do not have those extra config settings, so j...

Alerts not saved in config?

I just upgraded my RaceCapture/Pro mk2 to 2.15.1 and my dash (android phone) to 1.14.6 I had configured some alerts on my laptop, but they didn't seem to get saved in the config and transferred to the phone/dash after I upgraded that and synced with the RCP. I think the setting to save data in the a...

I run a race capture pro mk2 with the bluetooth to android cell phone (I just use an old cell phone, it just can't be too old since the app doesn't run on really old phones). I have a formula car and just mounted the phone over the dash (I tried putting it on the steering wheel, but couldn't see it ...

Other than the extra effort to configure things with virtual channels, what is wrong with using virtual channels to convert to metric?

Is it a memory or performance thing, or just that you don't want to write a simple script and switch the dash to use them?

I'm curious if I can use smoothing instead of the current RPM filter I have.

My raw RPMs fluctuate wildly and the current filter I have (throws out both low and high values) only helps a little.

Interesting questions, hopefully you get a reply about memory usage and how much the optimizer helps. Looking at the script, I suspect the printlns adds overhead that you can probably live without. I doubt the ones that it only does once matter, but there is one in sendCAN that would print many time...

I'm a little worried about overheating if I put it in a watertight enclosure. How hot does the rcp box get (I have it powered with 12 volt, and it runs bluetooth and gps but not wifi). In general, it'd be nice for the lua script to be able to send alerts/messages to the dash that pop up like the pit...

Missing SD card or logging error notifications support?

Will the new (upcoming) alerts allow for an alert when there is no sd card? I have a racecapture/pro mk2 in an open wheel formula car that isn't "water tight", even in the cockpit where the rcp is mounted. A friend I race with also has a similar setup. I raced a week ago and it was raining and I put...

Add a stop lap timing feature

Please add a (big) button to tell the app to stop timing/logging. I raced at Hallett over the weekend, and you pull off at the end of lap before the timing loop. I still have trouble getting the menu to quit the app (because the menu button is so small in the upper left corner of the screen it doesn...

Can we just delete the datastore.sq3 file to reset all the sensor names and make sure there aren't any duplicate names (ignoring case) in our current configs? Is there a better way to edit/cleanup the datastore?

How much does it matter if the trackmap doesn't match the track?
Will it mess up predictive timing?

I just downloaded the Indi trackmap in anticipation of the runoffs.
It looks like the runoffs configuration is a mix between the 2013 and 2014 GP track configs, but the track map I downloaded looks like the 2013 config (so the first part is right, but the second part seems to be wrong at turn 12).

What regulator/rectifier are you using? I have a Rotax 593 engine and I run the signal into a coil-x (that was modified with a bigger resistor to handle the high voltage) and that doesn't really work... Basically my setup seems to give a reasonable measurement at idle (roughly 1500 RPMs), but at ful...
