Gran Turismo 6 getting GPS course-maker app after launch

Wednesday, 6th November 2013 12:32 GMT By Dave Cook

Gran Turismo 6 developer Polyphony Digital has updated its racer’s website with details of a new GPS map-making mobile app that recreates real-world routes as you drive them.

The update reads, “This feature, available at a later stage through an update, will allow you to create your own custom tracks that can be driven in the game.

“Additionally, in another update we will add the possibility to generate a track by capturing the GPS coordinate data of a mobile app while you are driving that course. This GPS-generated tracks will be available in the game as playable content.”

Do you think this is a nice feature? Would you use it? Let us know below.

Meanwhile, here’s a list of Gran Turismo 6′s 1197 cars.

    Well I live in Norwich so all I could provide was an Alan Partridge-themed track set in and around the City Centre…maybe with a quick detour to Swaffham. But will you be able to do it from the virtual confines of a Rover 800? That’s the real question.

    Did anyone here ever play V-Rally 2? The course-builder was fucking amazing (unrealistic by today’s standards, but extremely fun).

    There’s a downhill road that I use to go to work, it should be really fun in GT6.

    Hope these are sharable!
