Garmin Catalyst is Road Racing’s Newest Must-Have Tech

Say hello to the Garmin Catalyst—a real-time driving performance optimizer and coaching tool which Garmin International says is “set apart from any other GPS lap timer or data system the motorsports industry has ever experienced.”

The Garmin Catalyst, tailored for road course racing, mounts inside the cockpit of your track car, then gathers performance data and provides real-time audible coaching instruction to drivers to help them shave lap time.

According to Garmin, “As soon as a driver completes a road course session, the Garmin Catalyst delivers instant-gratification with immediate session analysis showing users the biggest areas of gain right on the device’s display—no need to download data, configure graphs, or invest considerable time interpreting data. The on-track coaching and off-track data insights from Garmin Catalyst are aimed at optimizing track performance to benefit drivers of all levels.”

“The True Optimal Lap feature on Catalyst is truly a gamechanger,” said Adam Spence, Garmin product manager and Garmin Pit Crew team lead. “Until now, the industry standard for theoretical fastest lap has been to split each lap into a number of sectors. Then take the fastest time from each sector and add it up to generate the user’s theoretical fastest lap. The problem is, based on the laws of physics, the suggested lap time can be unachievable. Catalyst is different. It gathers several data metrics and identifies where laps can be seamlessly joined together to create the fastest racing line. This shows users their fastest achievable time based on lines actually driven and gives them an optimal lap they can truly achieve.”
