A new official GT6 video has been released, showcasing the game’s new GPS Data Visualizer – this time, with professional drifter Dai Yoshihara behind the wheel of a 2013 Scion FR-S equipped with the CAN-Gateway ECU.
GTPlanet was invited to test Gran Turismo 6’s new GPS Data Visualizer functionality during a special preview event at Willow Springs. As part of the event, I had the honor of being one the first members of the public to try out the new feature and to drive a version of the Scion FR-S equipped with a GT6-compatible ECU.
Here’s some of the first news to come out of the Tokyo Auto Salon 2010: Polyphony Digital has partnered with auto technology company Denso to develop a “GPS-track day unit”, one of which will be included in the new Toyota FT-86G. It works by monitoring your position as you put in hot laps around a real-world track (which is also in GT5, of course). Pull the memory card out of your car and plug it into your PS3, and the data collected will be used to reconstruct your lap within the game. From there, you’ll be able to watch your replay or compete against yourself by loading the replay as a “ghost” car.
