    How do you review Telemetry?

    Hi all,

    I'm not a full on tuner but I like making minor adjustments for a better race car, things like brake ducts, aero, tyre pressures, slight softening of suspension and on the fly anti-roll bar changes.

    The only problem is reviewing the telemetry as it's not available in a saved replay or to review prior.

    So I'm wondering how you guys review it? I had thought about completing each lap bringing the HUD up and taking a screen shot, I cannot drive with the HUD on all the time I just crash or end up on the grass when I look at it.

    I'm not moaning, I'm sure a fix will be along soon just looking for s solution until it's sorted

    It's not easy on the PS4, there are add-on Apps for the PC that allow it to be saved in real time for review off line, or even streamed to another screen or PC, tablet or smart phone for live analysis. I'm afraid that's one area where PC flexibility wins over console ease of use.

    Kind of a pain but you could always setup your phone or iPad and record a lap with telemetry on. Just a thought.

    this is the way i do it, i dont concentrate on the telemetry whilst driving. set the hud so the telemetry is your option and on when you leave the pits, as soon as your cars moving in the pitlane double click the share button this will start recording a video. concentrate on driving clean laps and focus on the track not the telemetry. do as many laps as you need to do and keep them clean and consistent. i normally do 1 lap to warm up the tyres and brakes then a few laps at pace a slowdown lap then some practice starts, when you return to the pitlane and have finished your little test session click on the share button again and this will give you the video of your hotlaps with onboard telemetry to study over. works for me and is very easy to do

    I may have to try that later, I'm rubbish with the telemetry HUD onscreen might not get proper reading as I'll be driving different. I'm particularly interesting tyre/brake temps for now

    Other games use the second screen feature on the PS4 so I'm hoping SMS might have a look into it at some point but obviously their a bit busy at the minute with patches

    You don't have to double tap the share button the playstation automatically records your last 15 minutes of gameplay just hit the share button then save video clip

    I know I'm in the wrong forum to ask this question but can anyone confirm if recording on the Xbone works the same way? I've been wondering how I can use telemetry as well.

    I asked that question a few weeks ago, I got "it's not quite that simple" so I'm not holding my breath.
