Yamaha Y-TRAC Applications for 2015 YZF-R1M Now Available for Android System
According to David Docktor, Motorcycle Marketing Manager for Yamaha, “The Yamaha-exclusive Y-TRAC applications enable riders to connect with their R1M on a level that has never-before been available outside of a factory race team’s pitbox.”
Using the Y-TRAC smartphone and tablet application, the R1M rider can wirelessly communicate with their bike’s Yamaha Ride Control (YRC) system through the Communication Control Unit (CCU).
Running data can be recorded by the data logger, with course mapping and automatic lap timing managed by GPS. The recorded data can then be downloaded via onboard WiFi to the Y-TRAC application where the rider can analyze information that is overlaid on the track map. The rider can then make motorcycle setting changes from within the application, and upload those changes back to the motorcycle.
Riders are able to access a wide range of data, including engine RPM, throttle position, front/rear wheel speed, gear position, lean angle, pitch (front-to-back), front/rear brake pressure, engine coolant temperature, ambient air temperature, fuel usage and acceleration (both forward/backward and side-to-side). The system also monitors and records YRC functions, including Traction Control, Slide Control, Lift Control, Launch Control and Front/Rear Anti-Lock Braking.
The Y-TRAC application, along with the YRC Settings and CCU Configuration applications, are available now for downloading to Android devices at https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.yamaha.jp.dataviewer&hl=en. The applications will be available for the Apple iOS platform later this summer.
