SpeedAngle R4 is a simple yet powerful tool to analyze your ride. With G force color-coded on the trace and its unique graphs of speeds, lean angles, and longitudinal G’s, it provides visual clues to help relive your riding motions, find your riding style, and improve your cornering skill. Hold your mouse key and drag to define an area to create an Area Report. You can download/upload/edit/save track settings from/to your device, or even edit the track setting directly on a recorded trace!
Please download SpeedAngle R4 below and unzip first. Double click on the icon to launch it. No installation procedure is required.
Change log 0822 2018 (R4 APEX 009): Improved the folder browsing interface of log downloading. For the change log of past versions, please click here.
- Laptop Power Management: If you are downloading with your laptop, please make sure your battery management plan is set at HIGH PERFORMANCE. GMOS downloads at a speed 50 times higher than many UART devices to save download time. It requires the full capacity of the USB port. If your laptop is not set at high performance, you might encounter difficulty when downloading logs.
- Microsoft .NET Framework 3.0 and UP. You can go to Control Panel –> Uninstall a Program to check your .NET version. As long as your Windows is up-to-date, it will be fine.
- Mac Users: R4 can be run in Windows with Boot Camp or a virtual machine.
SpeedAngle R4 is an ongoing project. We will be adding more features to it periodically in the future. Please check back from time to time for the latest release.

1. Download Firmware
Please choose one to download according to your location:
DashApex ENGR014 – THIS UPDATE IS STRONGLY RECOMMENDED FOR EVERYONE.
- It fixed the problem of intermittent lean angle mid turn reported by some users.
- It also supports both the original single orientation (horizontal only) sensor and the new dual orientation (horizontal/vertical) sensor. When paired with a dual orientation sensor, the system will show the system sensor orientation setting as SENSOR: HORIZONTAL/VERTICAL/NOT CONNECTED at the “SEARCHING FOR TRACKS…” screen and in the System Menu. When paired with the original single orientation sensor, it will show CONNECTED/NOT CONNECTED instead.
- The corresponding User Guide: APEX User Guide 0801 2018.
