I doubt anything is bad besides the bluetooth adapter. Will post back when I get a new one.

Free app - Waze: https://www.waze.com/

To see where all the cops, accidents, and Wazers are in your area, check the map: https://www.waze.com/livemap

Maybe a few of you are already using this. I've given it a try for about a month, including while driving from San Diego to San Francisco last week. It's a really useful alternative to GPS, with the benefit of having real-time feedback from other drivers. My favorite feature: if there's a cop ahead, and it's been reported, Waze will give a heads up!

Surprisingly, there are a lot of drivers using this app, plugging in with their smartphone, or by syncing through in-dash control. You can see the other "Wazers" on the roads. There were over 10 thousand nearby in San Fran at one point!

Waze can guide you to stations based on reported gas prices. It gives real-time traffic flow data as reported by other drivers, even reports accidents, construction, red-light cams, and debris/stopped cars on the road.

Only thing is, to contribute data, it can be distracting if you're using your smartphone. I had a passenger to make the reports. I know not all drivers are this careful. The interface is easy to use, and probably doesn't qualify as "texting & driving", but it might seem suspicious to other drivers and law enforcement. There is a voice recognition option I haven't tried yet, but I can see the interface becoming more seamless as the dash syncing and voice commands are improved.

There are some customization features that make it sorta fun. Give it a shot!

NOTE: there is an option to sign up as a member using email, Facebook, etc., or just remain an anonymous user with a nickname (for those fearful of being tracked). I'd be careful using names like "speedyRIV" - never know who might be scanning Waze from the off ramp...

+1. This app is pretty great. I use it every now and then on longer trips because of the cops/speed cameras feature. Otherwise I just stick with Google Maps because of the traffic data. If you have an Android phone with GPS/Location features enabled you're added to the data pool to provide greater accuracy for traffic jams.

I've been using Waze for about 2 years. Awesome app! Has saved me tons of time sitting in traffic and helped me find new bypasses. Since Google bought Waze, you'll notice events on Google Maps reported by Wazers - that's us.

Aaron, Waze has voice activated reporting available (primitive, takes some getting used to) and you can activate it with a wave of your hand if you have your phone in a good mount.

I'm pretty excited about this one: http://racerender.com/TrackAddict/Features.html

There's a free version and an $8.99 Pro version. Brought to you by HPTuners!

Video sample from racerender.com:



___

UPDATE: downloaded the free version of TrackAddict to my iPhone. First impressions are pretty good.

I can see the app is acquiring a GPS signal for tracking location.

There are 3 track map options: Circuit (road course), Segment (trip), and Drag (strip).

Video options seem pretty cool:

1) use iPhone's built-in camera to record at 720p or 1080p. There are options to use Low/Med/High quality settings, or the Front camera.

2) this is really cool if it works - remotely control GoPro camera via wi-fi. The app will take footage from GoPro and overlay telemetry data for export.

Finally, here's an option that's previously not been available for Apple iOS apps (that I'm aware): using an OBD-2 sending device (WiFi or GoPoint), the app will display or log PCM data. Knowing this is from HPTuners, maybe KR and a few other parameters will be available.

More info after I use it!

That looks great! What are you using for OBD-II connection?

I'm not, yet. There are a few OBD-2 wi-fi and bluetooth transmitters available in the $100 range. I need to learn more about what parameters are covered before I go there. In the meantime, this app should be fun to play with just using GPS and the GoPro.

I run a program called Torque (5.99 full version) on Android and a bluetooth elm 327 . great combo for information and more . free add on called track recorder will film your run and show the guages you specify while running as well as the view out your windshield if you have it on a mount.
