The Dashr timing system is operated with a mobile application, using your smartphone or tablet - Android (API 21 or newer) or iOS (version 10.0 or newer) compatible device (not included with the purchase of a Dashr system). It is because of this app we are able to price our systems so affordably, as we do not have to supply a control module - you likely have one in your pocket. The required Bluetooth communication protocol does limit us to a maximum range of 60 yards.
The 2.0 timing gates consist of a laser, reflector, and two tripods - the different "Kits" contain different quantities of gates. The more gates you have, the more flexibility you have. The gates are modular and can each be used as a start, stop, or split gate. They can also be used for multiple drills at once. For instance, if you had four gates (Elite Kit) you can do a 40 yard dash with a 10 and 20 split (start - 1, 10 split - 1, 20 split - 1, and stop - 1), two lanes of the 40 with no splits, or a 40, 5-10-5, and L-drill all at the same time. You just need a separate smartphone or tablet for each lane/drill.
Though Dashr was founded in 2016 with smaller programs/trainers in mind, it is now used by countless D1 universities, movement research facilities, and professional teams worldwide.
Hey NSS - there would be no issue with the results. All timing is handled by the lasers themselves, the app/phone simply tells them what to look for.
Say I time with my phone one day and the next day another person times with their phone. Would this cause any issue with the results or not?
Mine was only showing tenths, but since you said that it displayed to the hundredths, I realized that my phone settings was to large. Old eyes. Thank you for your quick response.
Is there a way to time the Flys to hundredth of seconds, instead of just tenths? The fly is so quick a hundredth of a second makes a big difference.
