Race-Keeper Predictive iDash is an in-car lap timing data display for race car drivers and track day enthusiasts. Race-Keeper Predictive iDash displays live performance data and predictive lap times using innovative timing and velocity methods derived from high rate GPS and vehicle data. Predictive iDash employs stunning HD graphics that automatically resize to accommodate all current Android devices (2.2 or greater).
Race-Keeper Predictive iDash displays live performance data, transmitted wirelessly from Race-Keeper’s on-board video data systems:
Current rolling lap time
Last lap time
Best lap time
Predicted lap time on current lap
Time comparison to best recorded lap at track
Minimum corner speed
Max straight speed
Flashing RPM color shift bar
Configurable gear shift points
GPS signal strength
On-board media capacity status
Vehicle battery status
Race-Keeper’s predictive mode displays predicted lap times, and clearly displays current performance with a unique “bow tie” display, which shows faster (green) or slower (red) graphical relative data as well as the time difference in seconds, and tenths.
Predictive mode gives racers valuable real-time comparisons of current lap vs. best lap, and critical decision-making data to continue driving a qualifying lap hard and fast or to cut bait and save precious resources, including tires and fuel until the next lap.
Race-Keeper Predictive iDash also archives and displays lap times and related performance data for each track session, so racers can quickly review each session’s lap times and data.
Start line positions for all tracks visited are saved along with best lap time in the Courses database.
A default page can be set by the user by simply tapping the Race-Keeper logo for 4 seconds on the preferred page – this keeps navigation fast and easy.
Set up is simple: connect to Race-Keeper’s WiFi hot spot and Predictive iDash is ready to go! Set shift points, store and display start-finish lines, select RPM source (OBDII, CAN or Tach), and configure gear settings all using the intuitive on-screen interface.
Race-Keeper Predictive iDash employs almost any Android full-color, high-resolution display from smart phones to 10" tablets. Numerous third-party mounts are available to secure these devices from suppliers such as Panavice and Ram Mounts, and of course Amazon.
