Lap timing on the DASH2
To use the DASH2 lap timing functions the unit must be connected to a Race Technology DL1 or DL2 data logger. The data logger monitors when the vehicle has passed a track marker and sends the lap or sector timing information to the DASH2 which displays the data and stores best lap and sector times. The lap timing functions only operate when the data logger is logging data. If the logger is just monitoring sensors and sending this information to the DASH2 no lap or sector times will be displayed. The lap timing functions use GPS data from the data logger, so can only function correctly when the logger has a valid GPS lock.
Lap timing functions use GPS coordinates as track markers to define sectors and laps. These markers can be added either by setting up a button on the DASH2 to add a marker, by using a dedicated button connected to the data logger, or by adding them to data using the Race Technology Analysis Software and saving the resulting .LAP file to the memory card for transfer to the data logger. Each of these options is explained in detail below.
