Post 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't detect a press most of the time), so it spends a while continuing the lap timing after I've pulled off and am trying to quit the app.

The dashboard doesn't need the button, but having it on the screen that let's you select dash/setup/analysis would be nice. It will still be nice if that screen also had a ( biggish) quit button.

I'm still using 1.11.0, so if 1.12 already has this feature, I guess I'll get it when the app is updated through google play.

Thanks. This is a good idea. It might be an app or firmware feature, depending on how we implement it.

I want to give support for both these ideas. I just completed my first track day with RC and found the default speed based trigger to stop lap timing never triggered a single time after pulling in the pits (speed channel works fine, still can't figure out why yet).

After a minute of waiting I really wanted a manual stop lap timer button.

I also find the small options icon in the upper left far too small to use easily. I had to go so far as to recalibrate my screen touch point to move it virtually up and left. That helped a lot, but makes hitting other touch points more difficult.

Hi,

Currently there is no trigger to stop lap timing - speed based or otherwise; that's why it didn't stop for you.

We'll look into different ways to stop the lap; we have some ideas to try.

The options menu button you referenced, do you mean the hamburger icon in the upper left?

Thanks Brent, guess that explains it. Under "Automatic Controls" I assumed the start and stop triggers were global settings given the generic title, but based on your response they only apply to the camera control settings below them I guess.

Seems to me that same control logic/option to choose which channel to key off would work fine to start/stop lap timing too.

As for the other, yes the upper left hamburger is what I was referring to originally, but after playing with the analytics screen this evening the gear icons on both top and bottom windows are about as difficult. For reference, this is not on a phone either, it's on a 7"x4" screen.

Right. That setting is responsible for starting / stopping SD card logging (if present) and camera logging. It's possible it could be extended to stopping / starting lap timing as well. We'll see if that's a good place to weave it in.

Thanks for the feedback!
