BMW M Laptimer App To Include Enhanced GoPro Integration

WOODCLIFF LAKE, New Jersey — New downloads and updates of the BMW M Laptimer App will include enhanced GoPro integration starting this summer, BMW of North America announced on Thursday.

The improved integration is "the natural way to really enhance the track driving experience," the automaker said.

Users will be able to control a GoPro camera on iOS devices using BMW's iDrive controller and high-resolution screen.

The BMW M Laptimer app tracks vehicle data and analyzes the driver's performance.

When BMW drivers start and stop the BMW M Laptimer, they simultaneously start and stop the recording of the connected GoPro camera.

A low-res version is saved on the phone, along with the GoPro camera, so that the video also can be played back next to the map view on the BMW M Laptimer app.

The BMW Laptimer app is intended for track use only.

Edmunds says: This enhancement makes it even easier to safely capture and share your track experience.
