It should be able to sync with gopros Gopro has the functionality you just need to figure out what signal you need to give the go pro to make sure the video frames sync with the data frames. Since its open source you can both do it yourself or wait for someone else to figure it out.

I have one of the Racecapture units on order/funded. I know the Solostorm autocross software guys have gotten their software to work with a Racetech DL-1 and also to use the wifi bacpac signal on the gopro or the one built into the new gopro hero3s to automatically turn on and off the unit.

With the fact the Racecapture unit is going to support Lua scripting and is open source I am sure someone will do that.

For the money I didn't see how I could go wrong since backing the project you WILL get a unit

The little they show looks okay. But it says it supports comma-separated value format which I believe a few of the other tools can import and since its open source hopefully a community pops up of people working on free software like we see with some of the DiY engine tuning modules out there

Wonder if the Race Capture can be made to send data over BT to RaceChrono, similar to RaceDAC.
I like to have the phone as the data holding unit, basic analysis in your pocket.

The guys have mobile app experience and plan on announcing something soon. They showed a basic dashboard on a phone in the GRM thread

"Hi Sachilles:

Although we haven't mentioned it in the Indiegogo project (yet) the current plan is bluetooth integration to phone/tablet. The display will look like an expanded version of this:

and the plan will be to have the essential config / analysis capabilities as the main app (re-cast for a mobile / tablet experience).

We have mobile app development skills on the team so this isn't a particular challenge for us (making the video has been the hardest part )"

I linked an image but it was getting resized and seemed too large

There is a site, I can't find it right now but that is starting to collect data from various sources so you can upload your Traqmate or Racepak data so we have points of comparison even when not running the same system

Looks like the gopro/racepak cable is available. I was told it's for gopro2 ... not sure if it that means it doesn't work with the 3.

Update: I have acquired, and have used, the Aim Solo. Short story - I like it. I use a Ram windshield mount, which is super sturdy. Defining an autocross course is simple, and it works, and the Solo doesn't time out on you while you're walking the course. Once it's defined, it starts recording automagically for you. I did nothing other than turn it on and off during the day. When you cross the defined finish line it displays the time for you.

The times it displayed were not exactly the same as those recorded by the timing lights. They were consistent enough, however, that I knew immediately after each run how it compared to my others. This was very useful when the official timing display went on the fritz for a few runs.

I'm still a scrub noob using their analysis software. But I was able to easily export each lap to a .csv file, and then use RaceRender to overlay the data onto my gopro videos for each run.

A sample, because I know you are all literately challenged, and video aids are helpful:

I just stuck a deal with Race-Keeper and used it for the first time this past weekend.

The learning curve is pretty steep but the amount of data and ease of use is mind blowing.
