Drag Timer

Drag Timer


An Android application that uses GPS to accurately determine quarter mile drag timings.
In addition, the following categories are provided:
0-60 MPH Timer
0-60 KPH Timer
0-100 KPH Timer

Users can save their best timings and view the top 10 best timings in each category.
Provides functionality to clear history as well.
Inherent GPS inaccuracy has been taken care of to a reasonable extent. If a drag has major outliers, that drag would be flagged.
Once drag category is chosen and Start button clicked (after GPS connection is obtained), the rider can move at any time and drag starts only when he moves.
Vibrate on drag completion

Disclaimer: Even with an outlier algorithm in place, the readings obtained are directly dependent on GPS readings and there might be inaccuracies especially if the sky is cloudy or in the presence of tall structures. Such drags will be flagged.

Please convey us any further suggestions/requirements to improve this app.

Highly inaccurate

I don't think it is very accurate We tested this app in a 2013 Nissan GTR (0-60 in 2.7 seconds) and the app gave us over 5 seconds 0-60. It could have been because we did not go too far over 60 and it seemed to hover under 60 mph for a little while and kept counting although we were well above 60 at that point. If we get something around 3 seconds I will change my review

Accurate I have a grand prix gxp which I do drag at the track. My 1/4 mile times are in the 12sec bracket. 0 to 60 in 5 sec flat. I compared it to my track times and it was real close.

CBR6 9.2 quarter mile? Maybe, but I don't think it's very accurate. I could be just lowballing myself though

Cool Concept No clouds in the sky and it says my NA miata does 0-60 in 11-12 seconds. Miatas are slow, but not that slow. Timing it concurrently and I get 9-10 sec which is right in line with literature. Its hard (and illegal) to find a place to try the quarter mile. Perhpas 2.0 should utilize accelerometer data and gps data.
