WOODCLIFF LAKE, New Jersey — The BMW M Laptimer app, which tracks vehicle data and analyzes the driver's performance, can now be downloaded for free in the iTunes App Store.

The new coaching app is intended for use in a controlled track environment.

The app is made for BMW Apps connected vehicles, not just BMW M models.

"BMW M Laptimer will automatically calculate laps and times for the user without the need for pre-installed track map data," said BMW. "The app can be used on virtually any closed circuit."

One nice touch for would-be racers is a Comparison Mode that gives users the ability to view individual or dual runs in real-time. Users can select their own laps or compare against a lap sent by another BMW driver. There's a social-media twist as well. Users can post results on Facebook and Twitter.

Drivers with the app can also generate custom maps.

Edmunds says: BMW says the app is intended for off-road use only, but undoubtedly users will have some fun tracking their daily commute.
