Porsche Go Digital Track Precision App Update

Porsche are extending the functionality of their complimentary virtual coach for the race track. Previously only available for smartphones, the Porsche Track Precision App (TPA) can now be displayed and operated directly on the car’s screen using Apple CarPlay through the Porsche Communication Management (PCM) system. The latest Version 3.2 offers Porsche drivers an additional 100 pre-programmed race tracks, bringing the total number of international circuits to more than 300. This selection can be further extended with individual recordings. The training app is available for all current-generation Porsche 911 and 718 models in combination with the Sport Chrono Package.

The Porsche Track Precision App records, analyzes and displays individual driving data on the racing circuit to allow drivers to further develop their personal driving styles. The application evaluates detailed real-time data on speed, longitudinal and lateral acceleration, braking force and engine revs while the car is being driven. The PCM connects the PTA to various control units in the car and enables the recording of data from the car’s sensors. The application evaluates the gathered information in comparison to a reference lap or the desired personal target.

The PTA functions include automatic recording of lap times using GPS, live lap time display, video analysis, driving performance analysis – including steering angle, brake pressure and accelerator pedal position, transfer of data using AirDrop to allow detailed analysis on an iPad, Apple Watch app integration for recording to be started and stopped and monitoring of the driver’s pulse, and sharing individual driving experiences on social media.
