Jaguar’s ReRun App Unlocks GoPro Magic in New F-Type
To say the wheelmen here at GoPro are a little excited about latest product launch to come out of the GoPro Developer Program would be a gross understatement. In fact, we are absolutely pumped about the new Jaguar ReRun App for their new F-Type. ReRun enables key performance data from the new F-TYPE including speed, throttle position, gear selection, braking force, g-force and steering wheel angle, to be overlaid onto video captured from the GoPro camera. The data is displayed using animated gauges.
With the smartphone connected wirelessly to the GoPro and to the new F-TYPE’s infotainment system via USB, drivers are ready to start recording. Performance data is taken directly from the vehicle’s electronic control networks to the ReRun app, allowing it to be overlaid in real-time with the footage from the GoPro. A unique feature analyses the data to capture highlights such as peak cornering and braking forces.
“The ReRun app combines several unique features from our Developer Toolkits to help F-TYPE drivers to create premium quality, easy-to-share videos of their driving experiences. Thanks to the close collaboration between Jaguar Land Rover’s InControl Apps team and our Developer Program team, ReRun offers outstanding functionality and is intuitive to use. We’re looking forward to the launch and seeing the first customer videos online.” said Adam Silver, Senior Director of Accessories and Developer Solutions here at GoPro.
The ReRun app allows drivers to download either the entire video with highlights included, or just the highlights – and there’s also an editing function. The high-quality videos are easy to share via social media platforms, making it possible for the driver to post their driving experiences across the internet.
ReRun is compatible with all new F-TYPE models equipped with InControl Apps, and with iOS devices and GoPro’s HERO5 Black, HERO5 Session, HERO4 Black and HERO4 Silver cameras. ReRun is available in English, French, German, Italian, Portuguese and Spanish language formats.
