Porsche's track app uses CarPlay to show lap data while you drive

[ad_1]

The feature isn’t available for Android Auto yet, although that’s not surprising given that Porsche only recently began adding Google’s platform to its cars. All Track Precision users should see 100 new tracks added to the pre-defined list, giving you 300 courses around the world with accurate mapping data. You can create custom maps using your phone’s GPS if a local circuit isn’t available yet.The updated app is free, although you’ll need to meet fairly specific requirements to use it. You’ll not only need a Boxster, Cayman, 911 or GT car with at least Porsche Communication Management 4.0, you’ll need both the Connect Plus and Sport Chrono Package add-ons. If you’re in that position, though, you may have just what you need to improve your performance without either an elaborate phone setup or dedicated telemetry gear.
