Hey Brent, Interesting development. You wouldn't have captured the key codes by chance would you? Which tablet are you using? Thanks for the update. Hi, I just tested the Anker keyboard with the app. The arrow keys successfully switch dashboard screens, and ESC backs out of the current page. I'll wo...

I have opened a case with Amazon support and am getting them to research the issue with BlueTooth Low Energy Keyboards. BTLE. Just to recap, Apple iPADs support BTLE, Amazon Fire Tablets do not. Hopefully they can get this escalated and fixed. I may try a Samsung Android tablet just for giggles.

Hi, we will acquire a bluetooth keyboard and test. If you have a specific exact model number to recommend (the Logitech you have) link it here and we'll get that one if we can. Thanks, I have an older model Logitech keyboard. But this is the newer version of it at BestBuy. http://www.bestbuy.ca/en-...

Hi Patrick, thanks for the update. Have you tried it with a standard bluetooth keyboard connected to the Android device? Also, did you mean that the iOS app does work correctly with your BTLE device? Brent, First, sorry about the confusion. To answer your questions, I'll take the last one first. "N...

Sounds cool; if you're using the BT LE device to simulate keyboard strokes then as you've probably figured out, the left / right keys will switch dashboard screens. Looking forward to your write-up! Hey Brent. I got the push button to work with a laptop running the Race Capture Application. When I ...

Just a couple of observations so far. 1. My script was not erased. That is still there, thankfully. 2. It did erase the cellular definitions. Other than that, things look to be back to normal. <BIG SIGH of relief>

Good news Brent. I'll be one of the first to test it out for you. I sure hope it clears up and un-sticks the unit. Hi Robert, It sounds like it stopped working immediately after you upgraded the firmware the first time? At that time, did the firmware progress go from 0-100%? If so, can you confirm t...

No worries Brent. I have been powering the unit via USB and not via 12V. I did try using the OBDII connector as well to power up. But with no success. It must be noted that I have powered the unit via USB and OBDII and they both worked fine previously when using those power sources. I haven't moved ...

MK3 displaying red light on front

Hello, I have had my RCP MK3 for a couple months. In preparations for the upcoming race things have been progressing well. After letting the system sit for a couple weeks, I brought it to the bench to do some final testing on the shift light when the system went to non-responsive. I have tried three...

Steering Wheel Push Button to advance screens on RCP Tablet

Racers, I am finishing up a project to add a push button on the steering wheel to advance/change screens on the Race Capture Pro2 dash tablet. I have the concept working with a Bluetooth keyboard device that uses a push button. Parts list is fairly short and cheap. Once I have it confirmed to work w...

I know this is an old post, but I have come across a software app on the android that is pretty nifty. The application is mSwitch and what it does is looks for the mic button to be pressed. Or, you can wire a push button on your steering wheel, and have that perform a function on the Android, and ha...
