  • POST-SESSION REVIEW: APEX APP

Not to worry - APEX not only gives you real-time feedback on where you are losing time; it also lets you review each lap later, to evaluate both your lap times and APEX Score. 

There is also a neat tool called "Crew View", which allows your crew (or girlfriend) to get live updates on your performance during sessions. If your driver pal has an APEX unit, you can track their times and performance as well - either from the paddock, or from the couch.

  • INTERNAL SENSORS

COLLECT 12,000 DATA POINTS EVERY SECOND

[ 9-axis IMU; Internal GPS & Computer ]
  • SENSORS GATHER DATA

Your APEX unit gathers data (at a rate of 12,000 data points each second), utilizing its built-in 9-axis IMU (Inertial Measurement Units), internal GPS, and computer.
  • DASHTOP MOUNT

Using APEX's simple dash-top mount (3M adhesive + magnetic pins), drivers can easily install the baseplate, and remove the APEX unit itself from the vehicle at will by simply pulling it from the magnetic pins on the baseplate.
  • 1) POWER ON APEX UNIT

Turn on your APEX by clicking the large black button on the left hand side of the unit. After loading, the device will go into "Freestyle Mode", displaying red and green lights. Open the APEX App on your phone, and tap 'Accept & Continue' to begin. Make sure your phone's Bluetooth is on.
  • 2) CONNECT TO APP

Select 'APEX_pro' by tapping on the name of the device with highest signal strength. When a connection is established, the APEX display will go blank, and the rightmost blue LED will blink once every few seconds. You are now on the home screen of the APEX App. If no devices are listed, make sure your APEX Unit is powered on, and that your phone's Bluetooth is turned on.
  • 3) PERSONALIZE YOUR SETTINGS

Next, scroll down to the 'Settings' tab and select it. Set the desired brightness by tapping the 'Brightness' button - APEX will demonstrate the brightness after each tap. Select your skill level to match the light display to the region where you spend most of your driving time; ‘beginner’ maps the lights from 0% to 100% of peak performance, ‘intermediate maps from 50% to 100%, and ‘expert’ maps from 90% to 100%. (We recommend everyone start on ‘intermediate’ until you are familiar with the display).
  • 4) CALIBRATE

The first time you use your APEX Unit, you will need to calibrate the navigation sensors to account for the exact angle at which the unit is mounted on your dash. This only needs to be done ONCE, when you first mount APEX to your dash - it does not need to be calibrated again, unless you move the APEX to another mounting position/vehicle. Select 'Calibrate' from the 'Settings' menu. Make sure your APEX is clipped securely to the magnetic base, and tap 'Calibrate'. Be still for a few seconds while the sensors are adjusted... Done! APEX is now calibrated for your car.
  • 5) SELECT YOUR TRACK

Begin by choosing a track by tapping the 'Select a Track...' button. NOTE: You don't have to select a track in order for APEX to work; but selecting a track will establish parameters for the lap timer, if you wish to use this functionality. Also note that you need to keep your phone with you in your vehicle during your session, if you wish to save your APEX data or use the lap timer functionality.
  • 6) START SESSION

Now everything is ready to go - fasten your seat-belt and tap 'Start' to begin your session! The two indicators in the top right should be blue, denoting that Bluetooth is connected and GPS is accurate enough for lap timing. Press 'Start' again to begin. Put your phone in a secure dashboard mount, in a glove-box, or even in your pocket. (Do not remove the phone from the vehicle or laps and data will not be saved!)
  • 7) FINISH SESSION

While the coaching session is live, lap times will be shown on the screen each time you cross the finish line. To end the session, tap 'Finish'. If you want to save data from the session, select 'Save Session'. You may now start a new Session, or exit the Coaching feature.
  • 8) REVIEW DATA

To review your data, choose 'Sessions' from the Main Menu. Here you can select individual sessions to see lap times and review your APEX Score. Sessions can be deleted by swiping left and selecting 'Delete'. After selecting a session, you will see a table of lap times. The score to the right of each lap is your APEX Score: your average performance during that lap, shown as a % of your potential performance (out of 100).

By selecting any lap, a ‘rainbow-road’ plot will appear which shows your path around the track and your APEX score in every place on the track. This allows you to review your performance for future improvement. You know that you are driving near the limit in green regions, and can focus your practice on the red regions where there is potential to be faster and drop your lap times.

Product Description

RACING DATA HAS ENTERED A NEW ERA

APEX is an artificial intelligence system used for vehicle performance simulation. APEX learns the performance limits of your vehicle, and gives you real-time feedback on how to optimize your decisions at every point on the track.

REAL-TIME FEEDBACK

LET'S YOU ADJUST YOUR DRIVING IMMEDIATELY

APEX constantly predicts the peak performance it anticipates you should attempt, then displays your current performance as a fraction of that limit. This results in a green bar  (your current performance) reaching toward the red bar (potential performance). By overlapping the two, you receive intuitive feedback at a glance.
