Tutorial: Remote controlling GoPro action camera with RaceChrono Pro
January 27th, 2016 by aol

I’ve added remote controlling of GoPro HERO 3, 3+ and 4 cameras to RaceChrono Pro v4.1. Setting it up is probably not completely obvious at first, so this feature probably deserves a tutorial of its own. I might create a video of it later when all pieces of GoPro support is done, such as automatic WiFi connection, but for now a small write-up with screenshots should do just fine!

Change log for RaceChrono v4.3.6 for Android
November 19th, 2015 by aol

Change log for RaceChrono v4.3.6 for Android (19.11.2015):

  • Google Maps V1 API is no longer required. Simple map is used as fallback if Maps V1 or V2 APIs are not installed on device.
  • Workaround: Compensation for faulty GPS receivers moving time backwards on some circumstance, and causing too fast lap time. QSTARZ and possibly other MTK-II chipset receivers are known to do this rarely. The backwards movement is now just added to the GPS time recorded by RaceChrono.
  • Fixed: Internal sensors time stamps on some devices. This caused invalid session time.
  • Fixed: Chinese (simplified) translation was displayed for users in Chinese (traditional) regions. Now defaults to English until Chinese (traditional) translation is done.
  • Fixed: Standing start was detected even when outside the start area
  • Fixed: Video controls were hidden after 5 seconds even when syncing video

Tutorial: Linking videos from external cameras to RaceChrono Pro
July 28th, 2014 by aol

I’ve just published RaceChrono Pro v3.20 which has a new feature for linking video files from external cameras such as GoPro. As it’s quite hard to explain, I’ve created a small tutorial on how to use it:

And here’s the finished exported video from that tutorial. Notice the only software used in making of this video was RaceChrono Pro!

The video it self is recorded with GoPro3+ black edition with 720p setting. It was supposed to be 24 hours race, so the 720p setting was to make memory cards last longer.

RaceChrono 2.0 (updated)
February 11th, 2011 by aol

While taking a break from developing RaceChrono to build my house, it has been good time to think about the future. Truth is that the phones RaceChrono currently supports are either old or otherwise not in par with the competition – so much more can be done with more modern platforms like Android or iPhone.
