he said iPhone in the title (Apple)

I would try it but I deleted my credit card info from the App store after someone hacked my account and robbed me.

Dynolicious is actually fairly accurate,within a few percent of a chassis dyno from what I understand.

Just make sure you input the correct weight etc..,if you put in too much weight HP will show high,too little and it will show low.
The car should be weighed with driver and fuel.

These little accelerometers are very accurate in terms of calculating speed and distance. As mentioned earlier, if you give them an accurate weight, they can get hp. Issac Newton was right, F = M A, and it works every time.

Unless you're talking about light, quantum effects, or relativistic speeds.

Yeah you caught that... I was about to add parenthetically that it doesn't work so well outside the realm of human experience (quantum and relativistically) But I didn't want to dishonor Mr. Newton during the Royal Society's 350th Anniversary Celebration...A piece of Newton's tree is flying on the space shuttle this week.

G For e is another great app and it is cheaper. Road and Track tested Dynolicious against their own test equipment and said that it was not perfect but it was really close. Good enough for me. Dynolicious is why I bought my Ipod Touch.

aDyno consistently tells me that I have 1400 HP. :-\


On a kind of related note, does anybody use a GTech Pro meter?

Same equation with same basic equipment-results should be about the same.

I have dynolicious on my iPhone - ran my car (I was in the Cavalier that day... sigh) over the truck scales, found a strip of flat road and let 'er rip.
Looked up the specs online for the car, and the numbers were almost spot on! If you factor in that the car has 300K km's on it, I'd say almost dead on.

Not bad for a ($10?) app.

Some day I'll get around to hooking up my RoadDyno, Gtech Comp Pro, and Dynolicious all at the SAME TIME and make a few passes. See who agrees with who!

I've used a GTech Pro on my car for running 1/4mi times/speeds. Then went to the track and it was within 1 MPH and .1 sec.
