Wanna know how fast your BMW is??? Try the iphone then

So you may think, whats a iphone doing on IAB. Well BMW has given us a cool software that can measure performance figures, g forces etc, the same kind of stuff that Polyphony Digital (makers of Gran Turismo) programmed for the Nissan GT-R‘s onscreen stuff.

Here are some things you can do with your iPhone and Dynolicious:

  • 0-60 MPH
  • Other Speed Tests (0-10 MPH through 0-100 MPH in 10MPH increments)
  • Quarter Mile Elapsed Time
  • Quarter Mile Trap Speed
  • Elapsed Time and Trap Speed for standard intervals (60?, 330?, 1/8 Mi, 1000?)
  • Lateral G’s (current and peak)
  • Braking G’s (current and peak)
  • Wheel Horsepower
  • Estimated Engine Horsepower

The output is displayed in graphs and all the results can be saved for future comparisons. There are many other features, but we should have a full report next week when we plan to test the application ourselves.

We did hear that there are a few calibration issues, but once you go past them, Dynolicious works pretty well.
