Using SmartRace on multiple devices and/or move the “license” to another device

Once you bought SmartRace, you will not need to buy it again, if you plan to use it on another device. There are some limitations though:

  • SmartRace can be downloaded again for free on any device which uses the same Google account or Apple-ID as the device which was used to originally buy the app. You’ll find the app in iTunes by just searching for it and then hitting the little cloud download icon or on Google Play under “my apps”.
  • SmartRace can be downloaded for free on all devices which are part of the same family group as configured with Google/Apple. You can learn more about how family groups work on iOS or on Android.
  • Important: If you bought the app for Android, you will only be able to use it on Android devices and not on iOS devices (and vice versa). Moving the app from one platform to another (meaning from Android to iOS and vice versa) for free is not possible.
  • Important: Neither Google nor Apple make the in-app purchases available for devices within the same family group. They will only be available for the very account that has been used to make them in the first place. This is not something that can be changed by SmartRace.
  • If Google Play only displays the purchase option for SmartRace although you have already bought the app, it may help to delete the Google Play app cache. Learn more about how to do this.

SmartRace is a software for Mac, tablets and smartphones and is used for timing Carrera Digital tracks in 1:32 and 1:24 scale and via the Analogue mode also for analogue tracks (e.g. Carrera Evolution, Carrera Exclusiv, Carrera Go!!!, Ninco, Scalextric or others). SmartRace either connects to the Carrera AppConnect adapter via Bluetooth or takes the measurement in analogue mode via the camera of a smartphone connected via SmartRace Connect
