Android track apps?

Any tips for a good track day app for Android? I am particularly looking for something that supports video recording and has tracks preloaded, especially Road America.

Sorry if this is an old topic, I did a quick search.

If you are a regular track guy and willing to invest a little more, an AiM Solo + Go Pro will give you much more to work with:

I run Trackmaster + QStarz 818XT (set to run at 5hz) on a Motorola Droid 3. When I had it logging at 10hz, it was too much for the phone to handle but at 5hz it is perfect.

Here's a video with RaceChrono2AVI overlay.

Dashware is one good PC app for overlaying the speed and position on your video.

Yup, I've heard good things about Dashware but too cheap to purchase the program. I use RaceChrono2AVI, which is a two step process. 1) use RaceChrono2AVI to open the exported data file from Trackmaster and create overlay. 2) Use video editing software of your choice and merge the overlay with the GoPro video file. I use AVS Video Editor just because....

It is really worth trying Dashware. The cost is like what, one tank of gas? The main thing I love about Dashware is that it has a gauge that computes your time delta between your current lap and your best lap. This is a wonderful way to watch your car going around a corner and see how you either gain or lose time vs your best time.
