It's time to track your time on the track. Ford Performance recently revealed its all-new data-logging app, which is tailored for drivers who prefer the track to the streets. The app, which was announced to attendees at this year's SEMA, enables users to analyze and share their on-track performance with the push of a button, harnessing the mobility and ease of smartphone technology.
The app is new, but draws upon established technology already utilized by Ford to enhance the driving (and tracking) experience. Ford's most up-to-date version of Sync 3, a common feature in many Ford models, lends its program to display notable track information, such as RPM, g-forces, gear, and speed. From there, the app delivers the information to the driver's phone for later review. Additionally, the app can work with one's smartphone to record video of their track day. As Joel Patel notes for Autoblog.com, "The phone, besides being used as a camera, is also in charge of recording the vehicle's location around the track, which is also displayed on the infotainment screen. Both the phone and the Sync 3 project the same bits of information and can be used interchangeably." Take note of the new features by watching the video below:
Now that its grand reveal is known to the public, Ford enthusiasts can begin testing its functionality in relation to their own track ventures. Have questions about it? Visit Sound Ford Washington today and speak to our team to learn more.
