Honda LogR™ Datalogging App

What’s the Benefit?

The Honda LogR™ app is designed to help Type R drivers achieve significant improvements in lap times in a closed-course setting.

The Feature:

While all cars communicate with their driver to an extent, some are more fluent than others. Through its controls, the Type R already speaks volumes. And with the Honda LogR app, the Type R can convey vast amounts of highly detailed information to help drivers improve their techniques.

  • Unlike other datalogging apps, Honda LogR gains exclusive access to the onboard computer and sensors of the Type R to monitor a variety of performance parameters.
  • The app must be downloaded to a compatible smartphone that’s been paired to the vehicle and plugged into the USB Smartphone/Audio Interface.
  • While on the track, LogR offers a performance monitor on the Display Audio that features a G-meter showing acceleration, braking and cornering G-forces; also shown are the status of oil and coolant temperatures, oil pressure and more.
  • After a drive when the smartphone has been unplugged, a Data Log can be viewed that uses GPS to monitor and map the vehicle’s location and the car’s internal sensors to gather data on acceleration, braking, cornering Gs and other parameters; the app encourages smooth, controlled driving through the use of a color-coded trace of each lap, with green, yellow and red colors indicating progression.
  • Also available after the smartphone has been unplugged is Auto Score, a function that monitors driver behavior over time and generates a score against a baseline established by professional drivers to encourage smooth use of controls and improve skills.
