  • Added export queue with proper file management

  • Added standard up-navigation
  • Added magnetometer support for internal sensors recording
  • Added support for data logger device with $RC and NMEA sentences (RaceDAC with GPS)

Maps API v2 requires much more CPU, and therefore is not as smooth to use, but Maps v1 has several bugs and is no longer maintained by Google.
  • Adjusted export video quality settings, low and medium quality settings produce lower quality than previously (Pro only)
  • Updated to FFmpeg 2.4.2 (Pro only)
  • Fixed Android 5.0 support

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.
