I never bother as normally have spare ones on the day. Well they do when I've done Oulton but not sure what Brands is like..

I'll be in the M140i, haven't tried it round Brands yet.

I will take the mini to Snetterton as it's a new track and I don't mind destroying the mini so much :D

Thanks for the advice. Do you run it with an external GPS unit, or will the phone GPS be good enough?

Can't you get a lap timer from M?

Will show you the track, your speeds in each place etc, not sure if it will have brands on there though!

No, I just use it with an iPhone 6. It's actually very accurate most of the time, I've tested it alongside some 1kplus data logging equipment and the times are usually within a tenth of second if not exactly the same. It displays corner g as well which is really useful, and although it lags the numbers it makes are also the same as the data logging stuff I've used.

This app was my reasoning for getting an iPhone many years ago :)

Do BMW do a lap timer app too?
