WifiLapper is a GPS laptimer, data logger, and telemetry transmitter oriented towards endurance car racing. It has a large, easy to read display so that drivers remain informed but not distracted, and can interface with external OBD2, IOIO and GPS units so that you record more and better data.

Once a lap, WifiLapper can transmit recorded data via a wifi network to a pitside laptop for further analysis. The Pitside application is free to download from the WifiLapper website.
Messages can be sent from the pits to the driver either via Pitside or via SMS. Normal text messages are kept private by requiring a certain prefix on text messages meant for the driver. Drivers can acknowledge texts by tapping the screen, and WifiLapper can optionally send a text back to the pits to inform them the driver got the message.
For drivers, WifiLapper displays their speed/distance graph and current lap delta (how ahead or behind they are at that moment, compared to their best-ever lap). Other optional displays can be selected as well, including current speed, and speed compared to their speed on their best lap.
Feature list: -Transmission (no data plan required) of recorded data to a pitside laptop via Wifi. -External bluetooth GPS units supported, to increase sample rates -External bluetooth OBD2 units supported, to record parameters from the car's ECU such as coolant temperatures, oil pressures, and rich/lean ratios. -Sparkfun IOIO chip is supported, to permit connections to analog sensors such as fuel levels, oil pressures and temperatures, EGTs, etc. -Pit to driver message supported via pitside application and SMS messages.
Allows application to receive and process SMS messages. Malicious applications may monitor your messages or delete them without showing them to you.
modify/delete SD card contents
Allows an application to write to the SD card.
Allows an application to configure the local Bluetooth phone, and to discover and pair with remote devices.
change Wi-Fi state
Allows an application to connect to and disconnect from Wi-Fi access points, and to make changes to configured Wi-Fi networks.
change network connectivity
Allows an application to change the status of network connectivity.
send SMS messages
Allows application to send SMS messages. Malicious applications may cost you money by sending messages without your confirmation.
precise (GPS) location

Allows an application to view the information about the state of Wi-Fi.
full Internet access
Allows an application to create network sockets.
view network state
Allows an application to view the state of all networks.
create Bluetooth connections
Allows an application to view configuration of the local Bluetooth phone, and to make and accept connections with paired devices.
