Getting Started

Installing

To install Circuit Tools iOS, download the application from the apple app store.

Supported iOS devices

Circuit Tools iOS will run on any Apple device with iOS version 8.4 or later installed. However, the app is to be recommended to be used on the latest OS and latest apple hardware, as this provides superior processing power. Performance may be limited on older variants.

Supported file types

Currently, only data files that contain laps of tracks within the Racelogic track map database are supported. For data logged at other locations, Windows Circuit Tools software must be used.

Loading data

As iOS devices do not have accessibility for media devices such as SD cards or USB sticks, data must be loaded into the application either via a wireless wifi connection, or from online storage.

Press the top left button to open a file.

Select the SD card option to load data from a wireless SD card reader, and the box logo to load data from a drop box account.

It is possible to load up to 2 files, as long as they are from the same track and using the same track configuration, even if the start / finish lines are different. If the start / finish lines are different, the start / finish line from the first file loaded will be used.

Note: Files from different locations cannot be loaded at the same time.

Wireless SD card readers

This is the easiest method of loading data into the Circuit Tools iOS application. Our recommended hardware is the RAVPower FileHub Plus - Model RP-WD03 or the RAVPower FileHub Plus - Model RP-WD007 (other card readers must be readable from third party applications).

File Preview

When the location of the file to be loaded has been selected, tap on any particular file to view a preview of it.

Within the preview screen, information on file length, number of laps, best lap time and detected circuit are displayed across the bottom of the screen, allowing the correct file to be chosen more easily.

To play the video in preview mode, tap the video screen once. To skip through the video in 5% increments, swipe to the left or right across the video window.

Video

Within this screen, tapping on the video itself causes the file to play or pause.

If the data graph is showing, then moving though the data manually will cause the video to skip to the selected location.

Two laps can be selected for comparison side by side within the Video screen.
 

Note: Some older devices (4 years +) may encounter problems trying to play 2 laps with video side by side, if the device's RAM is lower than 1 GB, the app will display a warning message.

Map

This area shows a map display including colour coded split points, automatically generated based on maximum speed. This allows to user to easily analyse driving lines.

The map view can be moved either by using a single touch and drag to move the circuit, or by pinching in / out over the image to zoom in and out.

The colour coded sector display can be turned on and off by pressing the paint button shown below.

To lock the vehicle position in the centre of the track area, regardless of zoom level, press the pin button.

Circuit Tools iOS application includes the Racelogic track map database. To change the circuit layout to any matching the GPS location within the loaded file, press the list button.

 

This will bring up all the circuit layouts relevant to the loaded data. Swipe left or right to select the layout desired, then confirm selection using the buttons circled below. 
 

Note: Custom start/finish and split point locations are not supported. Split points are generated automatically based on maximum speed, and start/finish points are taken from the installed track map database.

Data Graph

This area displays the channels selected in the channel list. When multiple files are loaded, the fastest lap from each file will automatically be selected for comparison.

To move though a file, drag the graph left or right. To zoom in on an area of interest, pinch in on the data graph – likewise, pinch out to zoom back out.
 

Laptimes

This area shows a breakdown of all achieved lap times, along with delta-time detail, maximum velocity and split-to-split point times.

The best lap from any loaded session as well as an ‘ideal’ lap created from the best of each sector time across the session will be displayed at the bottom of the screen.

By default, the fastest lap will be selected when a file is loaded. A second lap can be chosen to compare against using the tick boxes on the left hand side of the screen, which will load the second lap video and positional map trace into the application.

Note: A maximum of 2 laps can be selected for comparison.

Closing a file

Within this screen, selecting the file name at the top of the screen will bring up a menu of all currently loaded files. Selecting ‘Remove’ will close the file.
 

Channel list

A maximum of two channels can be displayed within Circuit Tools iOS application. Selecting a new channel will allow the data to be shown in the data graph.
 

Settings

To access user settings for iOS Circuit Tools, use the button shown below.
