I have always been using iphone lap timer for track days, i put my phone inside the passenger seat. the problem is i cannot see the lap time, by seeing the lap time it will help me improve.

anyone using phone mount for track day? i want something that is safe & secure. i figure if theres an enclosed case with hole in the corner than i can zip-tie it to the bike. is theres such thing?

the reason i wanted to use a phone for lap timer is cheap and decent, phone timer is equal or better than those $500 or less lap timer.

thanks!

I use RaceChrono & love it. It allows you to have a map overlay of your video via GoPro.

Ordered mine, arrived quick and mounted it up. Tested it out doing laps in the parking lot and it works well. Cant wait for my next track day. Interested in how consistent my laps are

Nah. Former trackside vendor that always helped me out. A couple sales is the least I could do.

Just ordered one too. Mac should get a commission!
Well, that was a big fuckin disappointment. When I got it I powered it up and played with it on the bench for a bit to make sure I understood how to use it. Installed it on my bike about a week later. Prepping for my first trackday since I installed it and it won't power on. New battery and nothing. Dead before I even got a chance to use it. That explains the price....

It's Chinesium. It's hit or miss, I guess. Mine lasted 7 years on the original battery, so far. Get ahold of Blair. He'll make it right (by replacing it, I hope).

He'd better... or I will look like even MORE of an asshat on this site.

I'd agree with MacBayne. Sounds like you just got a dud. It happens even with top brands. I got a failed NGK platinum spark plug that had me chasing my tail till I figured it out.

Mine is working great. It's awesome to see my laptimes and check consistency.

Give it another shot

It must have had moisture or something. First three sessions, and nothing. At the end of the lunch break, I go to fill it up with fuel and it's on. Sitting in the sun for a few hours was the cure. I think I might put it in a ziplock in the garage with a silica pack between trackdays....

Now the worst part. First time at the track with a timer and I leave the fucking transmitter on the steps of the tower. I know who has it, so I should be getting it back, but I was half way home when I realized it.

I velcro mine to the top of my triple tree for storage and transport. It's a part of my checks to make sure it's there during my pack up routine to try and keep from forgetting it. Empty velcro means I'm missing something

I've already made a little sign that I'm keeping in my toolbox with the transmitter. I'm going to hang it on my steeringwheel. It says "Hey dummy, don't forget the damn transmitter!"
