Track Recorder(Torque OBD/Car)


This is a plugin for the 'Torque' android app that allows you to overlay a video with your car OBD2 data. Perfect to see how you were driving!

Some features are:

* Watch the video you made with OBD data (speed, turbo boost, rpm as well as other OBD sensors) GPS, Accelerometers overlaid on the video.

* Google Maps semi-transparent overlay so you can watch your position on a map as well as the video at the same time.

* Can record in Hi-Def / HD or Low-def video (an option in the settings).

* Even if you don't have an OBD2 module, the app can still record sensor information from GPS and the acceleromteter

* Layout the recording dashboard how you want by press-and-holding on the screen.

* Video export (including subtitles for supported players)

* Other uses include as a blackbox video recorder to record your daily drives,

If you have a feature you want to see in the app, please email me using the contact developer link below!.

More sensors and gauges will be added in the next few releases!.

Transfer of video (including overlays) from the phone is done and available by using the export video function in the app menu - this then lets you export the recordings you have made in a format suitable for uploading to YouTube or for your own storage

Note: This plugin needs the full version of Torque

* Fix for a bug that crept into the build process and prevented adding new displays(sorry that one slipped through!)

User reviews of Track Recorder(Torque OBD/Car)
Camera doesn't work on One X, it halts recording after 2 seconds; tried internal/external storage also different quality modes - no go. Please look into this bug as the Torque Pro is awesome app.

This is a plugin for Torque which supports App2SD. Not sure why this plugin does not. [HTC Sensation XE running Android 2.3.4]

Great app but the video is coming out fuzzy. Track recorder is probably the best add on for Torque Pro, but every time I export the file so I can view the video with gauges and such the video looks like the quality has been reduced by a good bit. Anyway to correct this? LG G3 Video resolution selected in track recorder: 720P

Needs work I have not gotten to use it as racing season has not started yet. Would like the option to have larger dials on the screen. Also have no way to calibrate roll/yaw and reset max values. Will update as I use it

"...blackbox video recorder..." indeed..? Great extension to a brilliant app. I use this to dashcam my daily commute as I've had too many close calls with less than attentive drivers. This extension grabs voice, video, gps position, and real-time car data and syncs it all together. Pros: + Easy to use. + Customisable! Grabs ALL the data you want. It's like a flight data recorder and cockpit voice recorder rolled into one with bonus video! + Automatically creates srt (subtitle) files for playback on computers (use vlc). Cons (may be specific to my phone): - Cannot run dark; i.e., if focus is lost to another app track recorder will crash (can't use torque dashboard, navi, or even take a call while running). - Focus stutter issues esp. in low light conditions. I imagine I might be one of the few people running this extension off the track so perhaps these issues are minor. Still, this is a fantastic extension full of potential and deserving of support.

Good idea. Worst implementation ever. Cannot add dials. Touch does not work. Map overlay does not work.
