SmartRace was developed to be an alternative to the official “Race App” from Carrera for Carrera Digital setups in 1:32 and 1:24 scale. Many users where annoyed, because what Carrera delivered in the first place was full of errors and missing features. That was the motivation to create SmartRace to give the community the app it wants and deserves. SmartRace connects to Carrera AppConnect using bluetooth and shows the full racing action on your tablet or smartphone. SmartPhone is currently available for iOS (iPhone/iPad), Android and FireOS (Kindle Fire HD). Keep racing!

Yes, you can! Since version 1.2.0, SmartRace supports changing CU settings like brake, fuel and speed easily with an integrated dialog.
To see the gauge in SmartRace, you'll need the "Pit Stop Adapter Unit" (part 20030361) and set "fuel" on your Control Unit to either "on" or "real".
SmartRace does only work with AppConnect, not with other solutions such as CockpitXP Bluebox or others.
Try updating your Control Unit using the official Carrera Race App. Some users report that firmware version 5331 (and above) works better.
In case you find any bugs or quirks, please create a report at support.smartrace.de. It will be taken care of as soon as possible.
I release as often as necessary. If there are some bugs fixed, I'll probably create a release instantly. I'll let you usually know in the newsletter.
You need the Carrera Control Unit (20030352) as well as Carrera AppConnect. SmartRace does not work with the BlackBox.
You need a device (tablet or handset) running either Android or iOS which has Bluetooth LE (Bluetooth 4.0) support.
