The lap timer that comes on Mified bimmers is already a favorite of owners who actually use
their cars on the track because it records just about everything. Weather conditions, lap time (obviously), altitude, top speed, average speed, G-Force, and more are all taken into account to give number nerds something to digest and allow bar arguments to be settled. Now the lap timer app will have the ability to control a GoPro camera mounted on the car and store the video on an iPhone (since BMW thinks Android users are too poor for its cars). While we see many BMW owners using it to show off, some of the more serious track fans
may actually use
it to see where they can improve their driving skills. Expect this app upgrade to come out starting in the summer of 2016.
