VW’s Performance Capture Hardware + AppDecember 22nd, 2014
If you want to push your new Volkswagen Golf R or another of the German automaker’s vehicles to the limit, you might consider getting their new LogBox device to measure your performance on the track. Paired with the free RaceApp smartphone app, the device will help you track a whole host of performance measures and probably improve your driving as well.
The VW LogBox mounts to your car’s dashboard and records acceleration, your route around the circuit, lap times, G forces, and even records the driving with a built-in video camera. That data is then made available on the mobile app so you can evaluate your race line and driving. The price for the Volkswagen Genuine LogBox is 299 euros (~$365 USD) and, as stated above, the companion app is free.
