Gran Turismo 6 1.06 Update Released

Polyphony Digital has released update 1.06 for Gran Turismo 6, bringing the GPS visualizer and data logger to the Playstation 3 racing title. The GPS visualizer is compatible with Toyota’s “Sports Drive Logger”, which takes the GPS data from driving on a track and can translate it into a replay file. The data logger allows you to analyze your driving data, including speed, acceleration, braking, and more.

Another addition is the ability to create custom rear wings for your car. You are able to select different wing mounts, style, and side winglets. You can also adjust the height and width of the wing to your liking.

For more information about the latest update, you can check out the changelog below. You can download the 295 MB update the next time you fire up Gran Turismo 6 on your Playstation 3.


Data Logger now available

[Data Logger] has been added to the [TOOLS] section in “My Home”. The Data Logger will analyse the driving data stored on a replay file and will display it in a graph form, allowing users to view and compare the variations in vehicle speed, acceleration points, braking points, engine rpm values and gear positions.


GPS Visualiser function introduced

It will be possible to compare and analyse these GPS data using the [Data Logger] feature. This feature is currently compatible with the Fuji Speedway, Tsukuba Circuit and the Suzuka Circuit, with more tracks to be added later on.

(*Please note certain cars are not compatible with this feature.)
