Sector Name

This will be shown to the left of the point halfway between the two markers defining the sector.

Lap Marker

This defines the start of the lap. It can be automatically placed via Data > Lap And Sector Options, or you can place it manually by placing it as the first track marker.

Lap Marker Name

This is the label that goes with the lap marker. The Lap Marker label is indicated by the # at the start of it.

Map trace

The Map Trace shows the path of the vehicle, Once the .RUN is loaded, the trace will be calculated when the Track Map Window is opened. It is possible to display up to 5 traces at once, choosing between Runs, Laps and Sectors. The different runs will be different colours

Sector Marker

This defines the sector, and direction of travel. A Sector Marker cannot be placed against the direction of travel.

Sector Marker Name

The Sector Marker Name is displayed to the left of the ball on the sector marker.

Selecting Data:

To select data on the track map, you can either click to select a single point (or the nearest point to your cursor if not directly on a plot) or hold shift and click and drag your cursor along the track to select a range of data.

When selecting data, if you have multiple plots showing, then it will select from all plots. i.e. if you have 3 lap plots showing and you click to select a point of data, you will select the nearest point on all three laps.

If you have offset the maps in the options, then you will not be able to select data.
