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.

Nice app with the car data overlay

I’ve enjoyed the app for some years now and I feel that it has improved overtime.
Occasionally the data syncing and overlay is not right, but overall it does what it promises to do!
I’m not sure if I just couldn’t find it in the settings, but unfortunately I couldn’t use the app on my latest track day this past Monday. We did the Counterclockwise (CCW) Buttonwillow Raceway and it wouldn’t start recording as it was waiting for me to go the other way around (standard CW). Is there somewhere on the app that I can say we’re doing CCW? If not, maybe it’s something that can be added?
Again, otherwise I’ve loved the app so far! Not perfect, but a really awesome app!

Great idea with incredibly buggy execution

Absolutely love this app if it would just work. I don't need any new functionality, just the knowledge that it will work to log data and then work again when I need to export it.
I've been trying to use it for months. A few versions ago it would only really log data without crashing half the time. It seems to do better now with more or less reliable logging so long as you don't enable video recording.
Then this latest version completely and utterly broke both export and import. 100% crash if I try to export any recorded session to vbo or csv. Export to tpa works, but import (to try and open it on an ipad in the hope that wouldn't crash) does absolutely nothing.

It's just not acceptable to be shipping software that blatantly breaks functionality like this. A little bit of testing would go a long way, these aren't corner cases, just blatant breaks that make it impossible to trust that the app would do anything when you need it to.

No love for early adopters

I have a 2020 Taycan, which I waited for almost 2 years to take delivery of, through the early adopter program. And I track it, as all Porsches should be. This app looks awesome but does not work with my car. Only 2022 model onwards, it seems. Many of us are passionate fans and early adopters and we seem to get punished for that early adoption as opposed to being encouraged. Beyond “not supported” or “not compatible” I am having a hard time getting an answer on how I can enable my car to work with this app. Even though it has a pcm 6. I really think that a retrofit program should be conceived for such applications, within reasonable constraints, of course. Being behind two model years especially when hardware etc. should be there seems a travesty. Giving 2 stars because the concept is awesome albeit out of reach for some of us.

UPDATE: I had contacted customer support and just got the response saying it does not work for 2020 Taycan. Based on the developer response I contacted customer support again.

And again after a bunch of back and forth the response back was “ This app is only available for 911 and 718 model vehicles prior to the year 2022 models.”

I already realize this and I highlight this in my review and did the same in the email I sent. So the response was not very illuminating.

My question really is how this can be enabled for 2020 model year Taycan. Either via a pcm update or some other step.
