This iPhone app is designed for various types of automobile rallies that require measurement of time, speed, or distance between segments of the rally route including stages and checkpoints.GPS inputs trace the path along the rally route. From time to time you may measure time, speed, and distance for a stage or a checkpoint. These measurements will be stored in a table and the points will be indicated on a map.Options include subtraction of distance when you travel off course. A toggle button switches between on course (blue line) and off course (red line) travel. Also, map type can be set to standard, satellite, or hybrid.Distance measurement can be set to miles or kilometers and time measurement can be set to minutes and seconds or decimal minutes. Make your selections in the app preferences in the iPhone Settings.There are two ways to adjust distance measurement. An adjustment factor between 0.800 and 1.200 can be used to synchronize distance measured by GPS to rally distance. This adjustment applies to all distance measurements shown after the adjustment has been selected. Also, you may pause or gain time on a particular stage by adding or subtracting time from the reported time on a stage.For better GPS reception and improved accuracy while racing, third-party wireless GPS receivers are recommended. This app has been tested with Bluetooth connectivity to a Dual XGPS150A Universal GPS Receiver.Disclaimer: Continued use of GPS running in the background can dramatically decrease battery life.
