Re: Perm ODO

Currently the "B" tripmeter has a switch in settings so that it cannot be adjusted like the regular "A" and "B" ODOs. This means no incrementing or zero'ing. In the next version we are considering adding a password function on that ODO so a race organizer would have some visibility to the overall distance covered. We're also considering making the password function lock the App with an "SOS" mode that would allow exiting the App but would record the SOS access.

Would any of this be of value?

The sos function would be nice. You could even ''simulate'' the iritrack buttons, and send predefined text messages if a sim card exists.
About the sos, this is a safety feature that everybody would like, and since gps is active I would suggest to create at some poin a feature that it sends the coordinates to predefined numbers and keep trying to do that until a signal is found (if there is no coverage).

I dunno if the overall distance is critical for the organiser, critical would be for example to record the gps path so the orga can compare it with the predefined one, but then again most (if not all...) races have trackers. Another idea would be to record the paths, and share them around

I tested RB yesterday vs a roadbook made from a GPX file in Rally Navigator.
Flawless!

Later around the campfire, I was explaining RB to Jimmy Lewis when he pulled his phone out with RB and I quote,"It's the best odometer there is."

It's hard to explain how satisfying it is to read that. Thanks so much for the kind words! Please let us know if you find any bugs or have feature suggestions.

All the best,

What I want as an rally organizer is the ability to know if it was taken out of odometer mode at any time during the race. This is because normally it's not allowed to use any mapping or other smart phone navigation aids while racing. And if they do anything like that, we need to know so we can apply a penalty.

If RB recoded the time it was last taken out of odometer mode, then we can see if that time was during the race. There must be no way to bypass it into not recording this time, such as turning off the phone while the app is running, or other tricks. Maybe also record the time RB was last started, so we can verify that time was before the race started, and not some time in the middle of the race. Then make an easy way to access these two times, so officials can quickly verify them at the finish of the stage. Or maybe you can think of another way to verify that no other apps where used during the race? Or maybe the SOS function you're already considering does this, and I don't fully understand it yet.

Poorman Case

Hopefully not too much of a derail. Want to get a trick HDB case, but got impatient, so cobbled together a case out of stuff in the garage: Pelican 1015 Iphone case, diamond RAM base, a SAE to USB converter and a Powerlet to SAE cord. Not zip tied or shrink wrapped (USB connection) but seems like it will work as an interim. Pics below:

I finally got around to mounting my phone to the bars, looks cool.
All I'll be doing initially is checking my speed and odo against the bikes readings.

Hey Paul

So, when you say 'not for a while' does that mean a month, 3 months, 6 months? I'd love to do away with cables and run one of these to replace an ICO at the Amageza Rally in South Africa in November >

Whaddya say?
cheers, Ian

Anybody run this off battery only? Any idea what sort of battery life I might expect running just this app?

RallyBlitz turns the iOS device location sensors up as high as they'll go, so your battery will drain pretty quickly. My relatively young iPhone 5 will drain in a little over hour when RB is running on battery power alone.

Thanks, sounds like running power to the phone is a must then.

Zero B screen

Is there a way to zero B screen? I don't see a switch and see it tracks total miles.

There sure is:

1. Tap the "Control Panel" button (top-center).
2. In the "Odometer Adjustments" section, tap the mileage value in the "B - Total" row.
3. You should be asked to enter an "ODO B Passcode". The default passcode is 0000 (four zeroes). You can change the ODO B passcode from the Preferences screen.
4. Once you enter your passcode you should be good to go!

Hope that helps!

Hey DOOD,
Worked like a charm. Thanks for the help.
