hi, firstly thankyou for the software, successfully installed on my nokia n96.
i found out about racechrono from somebody i met at a trackday and he was using some software on his laptop called performance box, he connected his phone to his laptop and uploaded his session to performance box which analised the data.
my questions are.
is performance box the best software to use.
will my internal gps (n96) work ok, ive been told the internal gps on the n96 is a big improvement over the n95 or would you recommend an external one, if so which and where from in uk.
Yes, you can use PerformanceBox Performance Tools software to analyze RaceChrono sessions. Just export the session in suitable format. Another software is called Danas I2M. Both software have their Pros and Cons, but for me the Danas works better. It is quite slow though, and sometimes a bit confusing.
About the GPS, I haven't tried the N96, but it's probably same as with other recent Nokias. They are improved a lot, but as they are 1 Hz, they can't match the 5 Hz receivers like Qstarz BT-818 eXtreme, or BT-818X. I still think any good external (even 1 Hz) is better than internal, but the internals are getting better and better, so I might be changing opinion in the future.
Notice that an external receiver can be installed almost anywhere (ducktape to roof, or helmet or...) as with the phone you would not do this.
Not UK store, but US$ is cheap: http://www.semsons.com/qsbtblgpsre6.html
Performance Box uses standard .vdo exportable from RaceChrono. It is able to provide terrain analysis. I especially loved the Radius Of Turn axis view.
Now it's time to find that laptop...
Am using a QT-1000P by the way. Wonderful.
i used the racechrono on my nokia yesterday at snetterton
i have downloaded performance box
i now want to take the file from my phone and put it on my laptop so i can analyse on a bigger screen
i have tried but failed
can you help please
all the best
1. phone memory
2. mass memory
3. f-no name, which has a picture of an sd card, i expect this is the memory card.
if i open the memory card i only have the racechrono programme, im sure it is the programme because if i try to open it it asks if i want to install, there is no folder that says racechrono in this location.
if i open the mass memory there is a folder called racechrono, if i open racechrono there is 3 x folders, one called exports which is empty, one called sessions which is full of files - 6 x notes and twice as many with icons of a circle with a ? in it. and one called tracks
if i open the phone memory i have the same folders as the masss storage but they are all empty
i trust that i cannot find the relevant files, i have looked on racechrono in settings-general settings and the memory selected is mass memory
please help aol i am out of ideas
If I load a single exported lap on performance box(or all laps, the result is the same) it tells me: "this file contains dropout. Please use file repair..." I've tried file repair, but nothing seems to happen. I've also setted the start/finish point, it works only if it's positionated in a different point than on racechrono.
But.... I'm getting closer to the final result with danas Hope to post a guide soon!
Do you know how to analyze (compare) different runs on a special stage(start and finish are not the same point). Danas seems to support only start/finish in the same position
Thanx for you great job!
