No computer required for RCGarageTiming!4 days ago

Do you host events or practice session using timing and scoring software? In most cases you will need a computer for that matter and in some cases you'll require a particular software installed on it. Would you like to make it easier?

RCGarageTiming provides you with an opportunity to get your lap times without computer/laptop. All you need as an event organizer is an Internet connection and AMB Decoder with Ethernet port. Racers tho will be able to check their timings using their mobile devices.

Basic Instructions of Configuration

Plug your AMB Decoder to the Internet through Ethernet cable and Activate it using Timing Management Panel. And that's it. You are set to go and get all timing and scoring features provided by RCGarageTiming. Neither computer nor any application installation required!

Please watch a 3-minute video guide on how to properly configure and activate your Decoder.

Troubleshooting

  • If you don't have access to Timing Management Panel, please follow steps described here
  • AMB Decoder has proper configuration but it says: "DNS Error" while connecting to the data server. It means your Internet connection is not available for Decoder (check your router configuration).
  • If you have other problems getting everything setup please feel free to contact us via feedback page.

The idea of that feature was to eliminate unnecessary actions such as preparing a schedule, adding classes, siging up drivers and other redundant actions when racers just want to know their lap timings.

In this particular update we decided to improve a little bit the feature with Open Practice. From now on there is Open Practice History page added so drivers can look back in time and find their results on a given track.

Use tracks navigation in order to find your practice results.

Design and User Interface Improvements of RCGarage23 days ago

Since the begining of the development of RCGarage we are trying to make user interface be as friendly as possible. Nevertheless we have merged so many tools and information in our project so user easly could get lost within.

Making one step at a time of improvements to RCGarage user experience we are glad to announce this new update with the revised design of the main navigation menu. So the current main elements of this menu are: Models, Events и Tools, as well News and Profile Menu.

The most important change in the menu is in fact a new added element Tools where you can find such useful embeded RCGarage tools as: Buggy Setup Wizard, Personal Practice, Pit Zone, Search, and also an admin panel of RCGarage Timing

Besides all of that we have updated the design of All Models page so the initial display order of models in the list is based on the number of "Likes" from bigger value to smaller. And the last but not least we have added new page All Garages which replaces the old one called "Random Garages" so from now on it is possible to list and view all user's garages that contain at least one model with proper image.

Model Maintenance and Mileage Tracker within RCGarage!4 months ago

Starting from today there is a new feature is available for all RCGarage users. This feature will allow a particular user to keep track of a model mileage and model maintenance events related to any RCs in user's garage. It is not that rare that racers and other guys and girls from RC hobby keep exact track of how much battery packs have been used or how many gallons of fuel have been burnt on a particular model.

One of the advantages of keeping a track of model mileage is to get clear vision of when to make a maintenance especially if there are many models in the garage and it's hard to keep everything in mind.

There is a side note about future development of this feature. There will be more opportunities related to mileage and maintenance for a user in a very near future that will extend the current feature set. Stay put for more!
