PostForum: RaceCapture App Operation and General Q&A   Posted: Mon Jul 17, 2017 2:18 am   Subject: Raspberry Pi support - enables a hard-wired, dedicated dash

To follow up on this for, Rob, it associating again.

It was on the public release 2.9.2. Changing the name and the PIN seemed to fix the problem.

Daniel,

Here's something I'm been thinking about: A 3D printed frame for the new fire tablet, with hard mounting points that are similar to the dedicated dashboards currently seen. That could be very cool to ...

Brilliant! I have to admit that the slick design and the fact that I don't have to manufacture the thing makes the Pressy very attractive.

I'd just find a 4 connector audio extension, probably with ...

So I had a thought last night:

One of my original concerns about using Android as my primary dash is how do I recover if there is a problem mid race? This is an issue, because I want to have a sin ...

You really don't want a resistive touch screen - they're just sad in many ways - visibility as well as responsiveness.

This is very true. I used to have the Traqmate Traqdash which has a resistive ...

The tablet approach has a hidden benefit, and that's the battery, which will keep itself powered during pit stops. it's like a dashboard with a battery backup. Smile

A 2014 tablet should work fine. I have a super cheap Chinese tablet that runs it great. The Autosport Lab guys did a bunch of optimizations to ensure that even low spec hardware would run the app re ...

If there is room adjacent to the USB connector on RCP, you could use a nut to ...
