Performance Data Recorder: Your Digital Driving Coach

The Performance Data Recorder (PDR) — available on all 2017 Corvette models as well as Camaro 1LE and ZL1 coupes — turns your vehicle into an advanced driving analysis tool. With just two simple clicks, you can record every aspect of your driving, including real-time audio and video, plus up to 30 channels of performance data. Relive your favorite moments on the track, then dive into the data and analyze every turn.


More Than A Track Tool

While Track mode is designed to help you improve your driving skills, Sport and Tour modes take on a more leisurely role, letting you capture video of scenic drives and share with friends on your favorite social networks. Whatever mode you’re in, the Performance Data Recorder is a helpful tool integrated into your new Corvette or Camaro.

Park with peace of mind

When you’re away from your vehicle,
Valet Mode can be used to monitor
the use of your vehicle when others
are behind the wheel, recording video
and vehicle data. When Valet Mode is
engaged, other drivers are notified in
the touch screen that recording is
occurring. Valet Mode is also enabled
with a 4-digit code that locks out storage,
personal data and the audio system.


Video + Data

The PDR system records video using a front-mounted HD
video camera within the rearview mirror. Your voice is recorded
by a dedicated microphone, which lets you narrate your drives.
In order to capture real-time performance data, a telemetry
recorder is integrated into the vehicle’s Controller Area
Network (CAN) to access vehicle information ranging from
engine speed to braking force and steering wheel angle. For
more precise positioning, the system uses a dedicated GPS
receiver operating at 5 Hz.

Real-Time Data Overlays

A dedicated SD card reader stores all your driving data. Recording time depends on the capacity of the memory card (not included). The resulting video — with real-time data overlays — can be viewed on the vehicle’s 8-inch diagonal color touch-screen when parked or downloaded to a computer or tablet for further editing, analysis and sharing.
