Nah...Dynolicious has a BB Storm app, so there's at least 1 BB that has the capability.

This is exactly why I hate Dynolicious and the other ones I've tried: You got a 17 second 1/4 mile time for a 330i and think it's accurate? I've gotten some accurate results for my car but it's hard to keep the iPhone secure, not to mention the fact that any body roll will mess with your results too.

I hope this M app is better.

I took it easy in 1st and fourth on this run. I secured the iphone in an iphone back cover which was double-side taped into the armrest compartment. Very good securing method and repeatable results...
Yes, you are right the quarter mile time is s..t

Weird, I got "Technique", "Carbon", and "Lava". Carbon looks like Sport, Lava is the same and Technique looks like Midnight. I wonder if they change the name for different regions. I registered with a US address though. Maybe it logs IP???

Pretty cool either way.

There's a few of these for other platforms too. This is not a new thing. The android phones have two in particular that are quite good and have a lot more features than this iphone app. I also got rid of my iphone, couldn't deal with the calls dropping.

Cool, thanks. The disclaimers they set forth before starting the app. are great. They're covering their asses on all accounts that's for sure.
