The Aim Solo GPS Car Racing Track Day Lap Timer is a completely automatic motorsport laptimer. Using its GPS location, it identifies the finish line coordinates and automatically starts sampling and displaying lap times..
Of course, Solo can be used in all of your performance situations: circuits, hill climbs, regularity, point to point races, and performance tests. Solo displays and records speed, accelerations, braking and all of the data you need while racing. Then you can review your data immediately after each session, this helps you analyze and improve your performance.
Find your track with the powerful GPS technology
The most important feature of the Aim Solo GPS Car Racing Trackday Lap Timer is to show your lap times, it automatically recognizes the start/finish line coordinates of the track you are visiting (based on the huge list of World tracks stored on Solo's internal memory) which allows very precise lap times with very little effort.
To calculate laptimes Solo must have the start/finish line coordinates stored in memory and each Solo includes more than 200 world tracks:
When you arrive at your favorite track, Solo determines its GPS position, automatically identifies the track and then loads the tracks start/finish line coordinates:
Solo is then ready to calculate and display laptimes. If the track is not included in the database, it is always possible to add the start/finish line coordinates right at the track (see image) or the values can be sent to Solo via your PC before going to the track, using the GPS Manager software.
Select Your Race Mode
Speed Track: Circuit
This is the typical session (race or test) on a closed circuit. Operating Solo is extremely simple and intuitive: it automatically loads start/finish line coordinates, and then calculates and displays laptimes. Lap times can be displayed is different ways:
Rolling Lap Time
Static Lap Time
Predictive lap time, what the lap time will be, calculated during the current lap
Predictive lap time, time gained or lost, compared to the best lap in memory
Track: Point to Point
With this type of track, the starting position is different from the finish position. The coordinates of both points need to be set and this operation can be done using Solo, or with your PC using GPSManager software. Then, the laptimes can be displayed in the same ways as the Circuit style of track as shown above.
In Regularity Races, Solo displays a lap time as the difference vs. a reference lap. Typically this is displayed on the second lap after one lap is stored in memory. Aim Solo will continuously show the predictive lap time, or the difference (+ or -) between the predicted and the target lap time.
Performances races are acceleration tests of a defined distance or until a speed value is reached. If Imperial units are selected, it is possible to choose among: 1/4 miles, 1/8 miles and 0-60 mph. If the metric units are selected, it is possible to choose among: 100 m, 400 m, 1000 m, 0-100 km/h, 0-160 km/hm.
At the end of each Performance Test, a test summary is automatically displayed. The data is also available to analyze in the powerful Race Studio 2 professional software, which is included with Solo.
Choose Your Lap Mode
Aim Solo GPS Car Lap Timer shows different lap time modes, fully configurable:
Rolling lap time
Static lap time
Predictive lap time (screenshot 1), calculated during the current lap
Predictive lap time(screenshot 2), calculated as difference between the above and the best lap
Data Download To Your PC
You can at any time recall and review the recorded data, in a very simple way.Connecting Solo to your PC, your data can be analyzed and shown in tables, graphs and histograms using the powerful Race Studio 2 professional software, which is included with Solo.
At the end of your test, you can review all the key information on Solo. To review data stored in the memory, press the MEM button and the Data Recall page will appear. Solo displays the data as shown for the "Speed" and "Regularity" modes and may include multiple pages. "Performance" mode data is displayed in a single Data Recall page as shown on the left.
The Data Recall page information will depend on the Race Mode selected. In the "Speed" mode, the three fastest laps will be displayed, in the "Performance" mode, the significant splits based on the Units selected will be displayed, and in the "Regularity" mode, the differences vs. the reference lap will be displayed.
Data download to your PC
All of the GPS and ECU based data recorded on Solo can be deeply analyzed with the powerful Race Studio 2 professional software. Graphs, histograms and tables will help you understand your performance at all positions on the track.
