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.

Ratings and Reviews
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!
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. 2022: I am unable to connect to the car again. I would not plan on this app working for you. It has worked about 20% of the time in my ownership of my car.

Dear customer, Thank you for your feedback. We do our best to constantly improve the App. Thus, we are very thankful for your feedback on our latest update. Your Porsche Connect Support
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.
