.: Lap Timer Usage


Thanks again go to Rene Larsen (RLasen on Audizine) for yet another contribution and the content for this article.

The Lap Timer is an option not enabled on the A4, I believe it was enabled on the S5 though although I don't know for sure. If you do not have the this option enabled on your car yet go to the vag com section to see how you enable it. Make sure you have the proper wiper stalk first though as you will require all of the buttons shown to use this option.

It's interesting to note that this is the only place you can view your actual oil temperature as well.


Lap TImer:
Take a close look at this image as it is the main basis for the entire operation of the Lap TImer.

Storing the lap time
