The new Track Precision App 3.0 is completely redesigned and includes many improvements for the use on the racetrack.
Available for the following Porsche models:
The Porsche Track Precision App is available for all Boxster, Cayman and 911 models, as well as for all GT vehicles with model improvements from CW45/16. The Porsche Communication Management (PCM) version 4.0, as well as the equipment options Connect Plus and Sport Chrono Package are required to use the app.
It also continues to be available for older GT vehicles from CW22/14 with the option (643) "Sport Chrono package including Porsche Track Precision App and lap trigger preparation".
Overview of functions:
Automatic lap time recording
Thanks to precise GPS data, lap times can be automatically recorded.
You can select your desired track from over 200 predefined race tracks worldwide or simply create your own.
Recording of precise vehicle data
The Porsche Track Precision App is connected via the Porsche Communication Management system or a special app control unit with various control units and records accurate data from the vehicle sensors.
Recording of vital data
Heart rate is recorded via Apple Health if an Apple Watch is connected to the iPhone. The heart rate can be evaluated later in the analysis.
Two live views are available while driving on a race track:
- Lap timer: Clear display of the lap time with real-time deviation to a reference lap recording as well as the predictive lap time
- Drive at your limits: Reduced display of your current and possible learned performance.
Use your smartphone while driving to record videos for subsequent analysis. To obtain an additional view point while driving, a second video can be added, for example, from another smartphone camera or action cam.
Videos are available to view on your smartphone directly after driving – enhanced with useful driving data to improve your performance.
Driving performance analysis
By connecting to the vehicle sensors, the app enables you to analyse additional driving data which can be compared with previous laps, allowing you to improve your driving performance, for example, in relation to the steering angle, braking pressure and the position of the accelerator pedal. Videos and driving data can also be exported to your PC for detailed analysis.

Update not working properly
The app actually worked flawlessly during my 6/9 trackday in my GT4. Since the update the overlay data seems to be off (at first i thought it was in kph but even that doesnt translate properly) and the rpm is way off (has my car revving to 9k rpm). I also cannot export any video as it keeps getting stuck at 83%. Any advice would be appreciated. Thanks!
Thank you for your response. Just to respond to your response I have 160GB free on my phone...I also do not believe I am the only user having exporting issues.

Latest version needs a lot of work, still looks like a beta full of bugs
Just opened the latest version of the app that automatically download 3 days ago. I can no longer export video’s, the download locks up at around 75%. The replay function now puts the speed in KPM and not MPH and there does not appear to be any way to change the settings., The rev counter for some reason now shown my RPM on a Cayman GT4 shifting at near 10,000 RMP (I don’t think the warranty folks would like that. The replay defaults to the fastest lap and it’s not intuitive on how you get to the start of the session. I’ll be heading to a track event this week will let you know how it works to capture events. Also a large proton of the app descriptions are in German.
Update: despite a response from Porsche to provide assistance on the App issues, they were less than helpful. Went to another track event yesterday and the App has completely stopped working. The events are recorded by cannot be viewed, when you attempt to analyze or look at the event, the App crashes. Absolutely useless as it stands right now.

It used to be buggy; now it won’t connect to my car
I own a 2015 GT3. I was able to get the app to connect and work in 2018. At the beginning of 2018 it would occasionally crash. After a revision or two, it worked well. I attempted to use the app last month (Apr 2019) but was unable to connect the car to my phone via Wi-Fi. The password is GT3[VIN] but after 10 attempts—no joy. I closed all apps, restarted the iPhone X, deleted and reinstalled the app... I cannot get my phone to connect to the car. If you are on the fence about optioning Sport Chrono to use this app, I would not plan on it working.
June 2019: The forums led me astray—the x is really an x in the password GTx[VIN]. The new interface is going to take some getting used to but now you can view video as you analyze data. One dislike is when you create a video, it displays your speed in kph and it doesn’t appear you can change it. Please make this more English friendly.
