February 19, 2020 — TORRANCE, Calif.

  • LogR™ is first-of-its-kind app from Honda, exclusive to 2020 Civic Type R
  • Only datalogger that uses information directly from Type R’s onboard computer
  • LogR™ saves laps, allowing drivers to track improvement over time
One of the key features of the updated 2020 Honda Civic Type R is an all-new datalogging app designed to provide Type R drivers with data and scoring information that improves driving skill when driving on the track or other closed courses. A new video from Honda showcases the capabilities of the new LogR™ smartphone app as a driver hot-laps the Streets of Willow in Rosamond, California.

Drivers interact with Honda LogR™ through three main functions: A Performance Monitor provides vehicle information to the driver on the Display Audio screen, while Log Mode records lap times on the track. Finally, the Auto Score function encourages smooth driving by monitoring braking, acceleration and steering, and generating a “driving smoothness” score using proprietary algorithms developed by Honda with the help of professional Honda drivers.

While driving, all interaction with Honda LogR™ is through the vehicle’s Display Audio screen. Both Log Mode and Auto Score also offer more in-depth analysis when the phone is unplugged from the vehicle, including previous drives, performance traces and replays using GPS mapping and detailed vehicle information.

Unlike third-party datalogging apps, LogR™ features exclusive access to the Type R’s onboard computer, delivering more in-depth detail on the vehicle’s performance than aftermarket systems that’s only available through the vehicle’s factory onboard computer.

The new LogR™ app is designed to work exclusively with the 2020 Type R, for both iPhone® and Android™ users. The app is expected to be available for download sometime this spring.

Ugh if there really is no 2017-2019 support, this makes me hella bitter. I was more intrigued by this than the phoenix yellow type r.

All these updates are starting to really make the 2020 more appealing than the 2017-2019 models...

It’s just an app, most likely there will be an APK that can be side loaded with the Honda hack. Otherwise I can’t see why they won’t let this run (via download) on older systems. Don’t worry ya’ll.

Oil temp is present in european models already I believe, but this notably is displayed in farenheit.

I'm really curious how they're accomplishing this. Bluetooth module in the ECU? Seems unlikely.. Probably the headunit itself connects to your phone and receives the data over the same channels as the vehicle speed, mileage, etc.

Kinda gimmicky though, nothing you can't already do with a $20 bluetooth dongle and several existing apps.

“exclusive” to 2020? That’s not fair. 2017-2019 owners should have this benefit as well considering that this car is “exclusively” designed/engineered to go around the track.

I think that’s the whole point. To make significant changes to appeal to new buyers and owners of previous year models. Makes current owners think to themselves.... “ Should I trade it in?” :dunno:

Exactly .. and many of these features you can already get with Torque.

The new LogR™ app is designed to work exclusively with the 2020 Type R, for both iPhone® and Android™ users. The app is expected to be available for download sometime this spring.

Once someone with a 2020 Type R and Honda hack "Exports" the APK, and "Shares it", anyone else with Honda Hack should be able to install that APK, and with the downloaded Phone app, have LogR running.

Anyone Else being anyone with an earlier Model GenX Type R, or possibly even a GenX Si

And if it becomes a technical issue, hopefully the Honda Hack Developer will address it in later version of Honda hack.

Oil Temperature AND Oil Pressure !!! Looks like Pre-2020 Type R's will need an additional hardware senor, and the SI, two !!
