Data Sources

Unlike other motocross apps, MX Buddy is not limited to using a specific GPS device! There are various sources from which you can retrieve your data.

RaceBox Mini S

The RaceBox Mini S is the most powerful device for motocross on the market! It delivers 25 highly accurate positions per second and also precise acceleration data, which is very important for analyzing starts.
In case you have a RaceBox Mini (without "S" in the name), you need your iPhone for recording. The iPhone can be placed in a bar pad, at your chest protector, in a fanny pack or even in your boot.

You can exchange your RaceBox Mini to a RaceBox Mini S until end of August 23.

The XGPS160 is with its 10 positions per second an awesome GPS device that is suitable for recording precise lap and section times and for analyzing line selection.
It is the same device that is now used by LITPro and was originally used by CrossBox as well. So if you are unhappy with your current solution, want to try something new, or just tired of subscription fees, MX Buddy might be the solution for you. With MX Buddy, you can directly access your sessions on the XGPS and download them into the app to analyze them.

Polar & Garmin

Turn your Polar / Garmin fitness watch into a motocross training tool!
Just connect MX Buddy with your Polar Flow / Garmin Connect account. Record your riding sessions with the watch. Sync your watch with Polar Flow / Garmin Connect and import the sessions you like right into MX Buddy and do your analysis.

Apple Watch

Use the MX Buddy Apple Watch app or load your sessions from Apple Fitness!
With the Apple Watch app you can record laps, ride race distances and hear lap and segment times via headphones without having to take your iPhone with you. Or you record your ride with the Workouts app on your watch and then import it into MX Buddy on your iPhone.

You can also use MX Buddy without additional hardware!
All you need is your iPhone. Just put it in a bar pad and follow your lap times and heart rate while riding. And if you want, listen to your lap and segment times via earphones.

Other GPS Devices

If you own a GPS watch or another GPS device (e.g. from Suunto), you can import its data via GPS files.
Just export your GPS file from your device and save it in your Dropbox (or on a web space with public access). From there you can import the into MX Buddy.
A direct access to the data of your Suunto smartwatch will be available in a future release of the app! It is already in the making.
Support file types are
  • TCX
  • GPX
  • KML
  • FIT


You own the original LITPro device (not the XGPS160)?
LITPro offers its own app to analyze data. But if you want to also have your lap times in MX Buddy, you can load them via MX Buddy’s LITPro import functionality.
Maybe sometime there will be access to track data of LITPro, instead of just lap times. Well, let’s at least hope so ;-)


Your race results can be easily imported into MX Buddy, if they are listed on MYLAPS.
MX Buddy lets you navigate through race results and import and analyze lap times from any rider.
