BMW M Laptimer App
Share the excitement of driving in tenths of a second and m/s². BMW M Laptimer* is a tool for analysing data on racetracks and automatically calculating lap times. The app records precise BMW sensor data directly from every BMW model fitted with BMW Apps†. You can analyze the data to increase your driving skill and precision. Or you can share a summary of your track day on Facebook and Twitter or email a recording of your laps to a friend and compare your track performance turn by turn.
BMW M Laptimer now integrates with GoPro cameras, enabling you to control a connected GoPro camera directly from your iDrive infotainment system. You can monitor the GoPro camera’s Wi-Fi signal strength, battery charge level and, while parked, validate the mounting position by seeing a live preview image. In addition to the video stored on the GoPro camera, a low-resolution version can be saved to the phone for synchronous playback with an aerial track view in the BMW M Laptimer app.
BMW M Laptimer records the following vehicle sensor data:
– GPS location
– Forward acceleration
– Lateral acceleration
– Acceleration from 0 to 100 km/h or 60 mph
– Accelerator pedal‡
– Steering angle‡
– Engine speed‡

Buggy with iOS13
Please update the app to work more reliably with iOS 13; several of us driving at Watkins Glen this past weekend had very limited success recording laps with m Laptimer with a variety of devices (including iPhone 11 pro max, iPhone XS Max). This a great app when it’s working and would really like to see an update. Thanks.
Please update this app
As of July 2018, I’m unable to play the sessions in anything other than map mode; none of the others has playability- please fix and update
Works but can't delete example recordings
Every time I open this app I am greeted by 3 recordings that you can not permanently delete because they will always load back up again the next time you run the app. It's so annoying to see these 3 recording every time I load my app.
With Family Sharing set up, up to six family members can use this app.
