With the BMW M Laptimer app, driving data from the racetrack can be accurately recorded, bend by bend, and then analysed with the aim of improving driving performance. The app collects precise data from the BMW sensors and shows selected values in the Control Display.
The system is operated via the iDrive Controller. While it is recording, the BMW M laptimer app shows the GPS position, speed, forward acceleration, lateral acceleration (G-force), lap times and acceleration up to a certain speed (e.g. from 0 to 100 km/h). Depending on the vehicle equipment and model year, factors measured may also include the accelerator position, steering angle, deceleration, rpms and gear, as well as fuel consumption. The recorded data can be posted as a snapshot to social networks, or saved and sent via email.
