When you’re out on the track in your 2020 Honda Civic Type R, you will soon be able to get all the performance data you want simply with a few taps of your smartphone screen. Honda has recently announced an all-new datalogging app called Honda LogR®, which will help Type R drivers better understand their driving skills.
The Honda LogR® allows drivers to interact with it in three ways. The first is a Performance Monitor that allows the driver to track vehicle information on the Display Audio screen. Log Mode is the second function, which records lap times on the track. Then, there’s Auto Score, which is a function that monitors braking, acceleration, and steering to generate a “driving smoothness” score to help encourage smoother driving.
When you’re outside the car, you can even use the phone app to delve deeper into the data. The Log Mode and Auto Score functions allow you to look at previous drivers, performance traces, and replays of your drive using GPS mapping and detailed vehicle information.
The LogR® app will have exclusive access to the Civic Type R’s onboard computer, which other third-party datalogging apps don’t offer. This means you can get more in-depth detail about your vehicle’s performance than these aftermarket systems would offer.
This app will work exclusively with the 2020 Type R for both iPhone® and Android™ users and should be available to download sometime this spring. If you still need a Civic Type R, though, visit Avery Greene Honda!
