Post RC App on RasberryPI 3 running Raspian OS 
I would like to use Race capture on my Rasberry pi with LCD running Raspian. How do I get it installed ?

Funny you asked, we are working on some instructions just for that. It works extremely well on a Raspberry Pi, as it turns out. Plus, it doesn't require Android and the related overhead - runs right from the command line, and will give the effect of a dedicated dash that starts upon receiving power. You'll be able to connect over WiFi, or even USB for that hard-wired effect.

We'll reply here with updates!

Where did you get the housing for the display shown in this picture?

It looks like it has the raspberry pi logo embossed on it, but I don't see it listed under the Products page Sad

Not sure why you can't find it there, but you can certainly find it on Amazon!

Post MK2, Pi3 and 10.1LCD 
Taking on this challenge, but I wanted a bigger screen size, so I found a Waveshare #11870 resistive touch screen w/direct connect for the PI. its nice because PI attaches directly to it, and the PI powers the LCD. I also purchased a 12V-5V5a converter to handle the power issues.

So far in bench testing/setup I wasn't able to get Jessie-lite because I didn't know how to add the LCD drivers to the card. So I used Waveshare's img (Jessie 8 with drivers installed). then added the Racecapture app. when I execute from the GUI it works no problem. my issues are with the LCD calibration which makes it impossible to navigate the RC screens (but the arrows work fine to toggle the dash's). when I ran the calibration file and got the results, Pi says I don't have permission to edit the 99-calibration.conf file???? so that's this weekends project. once I get that fine tuned, I'll set it to autoboot directly to the RC app.

Hi Dave,

In Linux some files are protected and can only be accessed by the 'super user'. This article should help:

i was able to get in as root, change what i needed but now its locked up. sooooo, i decided to go back to square one and try the Jessie-lite approach. got everything with pi and the 10.1 LCD loaded and working. now my only prob is getting the racecapture app copied to the pi. when i try to copy the .biz file to the sdcard, it says i dont have enuff room. then i tried wget approach. that seemed to download a file named Index.html?

im gonna try and find the commands to use the pi's usb with my zip drive to get them copied and expanded.

a word of advice to those that try this without linux experience, check your spelling!!! i had several failures because i typed something wrong.

so im a dumbass, i entered the file name not the URL. did that and got it. run the program, and it works!!

But, back to the original issue. touchscreen calibration (or maybe overscan?). but at least now im a little more knowledgable and know how to edit the config file. but i'd much rather be revalving some shocks!

ill post a pic tomorrow nite.

Question: will the Raspberry Pi app stream to Podium over a network connection, like the Android version? I'd like to build the RPi as the dash for our race car, but my race team is hooked on Podium Live now and I'd like to keep broadcasting to Podium through a WiFi hotspot as we do now.

Hi,

Yes, the RaceCapture app running on RPi can do anything the RaceCapture app can do on Android or iOS - including real-time telemetry. See the guide here on setting that up:
