Tutorial: Using only a GoPro for data recording, and importing to RaceChrono at pits

While RaceChrono cannot connect to the GoPro’s GPS while “live recording”, you can import the data embedded in to the video files afterwards. You’ll only need a GoPro that has a build-in GPS.

  1. Record a video of your session using your GoPro. Make sure the GoPro’s built-in GPS is turned on. You will not need RaceChrono before next step. You can leave your phone at the pits!
  2. After your session, import the GoPro files from “RaceChrono > top menu > Import”, and use the “GoPro sensor data” as import format. Easiest is to use a memory card reader, and transfer import the files directly from it. Make sure to import all the video files related to the one session at one go.
  3. A session is created, which has your video files linked to it. You can now analyse and export the session just like any other session.
