Aim Solo GPS Lap Timer
The most important feature of Solo is to show your lap times. When Solo is powered up, 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, this allows very precise lap times with very little effort.
Find your track with the powerful GPS technology
Solo is then ready to calculate and display lap times. 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
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 software. 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. Solo will continuously show the predictive lap time, or the difference (+ or -) between the predicted and the target lap times.
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 Time Mode
Solo is fully configurable and includes different lap time display modes:
- 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
- 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.
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.
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.
The Aim 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.
Aim Solo ECU DL Connection
Aim Solo DL Connection
In addition to all of Solo’s powerful functions, SoloDL can be connected to the Engine Control Unit (ECU) of your car to sample, record and display. Additionally this data can be displayed on optional AiM SmartyCam HD generated video. Additional sensors and complicated wiring are not required with ECU supplied information. You can get all the info you need to improve your driving skills like RPM, throttle position, brake pressure and much more.
There are many different ECU protocols and AiM has developed a huge database to make connection to virtually all possible stock and racing ECUs.
Hardware compatibility: ECUs transmit data according to three different standards: OBDII connection which is typical of stock/production cars and CAN or RS232 connections which are the standard for racing/aftermarket ECUs.
SoloDL is compatible with all of these standards thanks to the huge AiM database of ECU protocols that is constantly updated and freely downloadable here.
To connect Solo to your car, you need to choose the cable that fits to your car: SoloDL comes with your choice of cable for stock/production cars or for racing/aftermarket ECUs.
ECU selection: with RaceStudio2 software it is possible to select from more than 500 specific ECU protocols, allowing Solo to read, record, and display the ECU data.
Pages configuration: like Solo, SoloDL allows fully User customizable pages to be configured with the desired data.
Data analysis: after each test, it is possible to analyze all of the data recorded. You will understand your performance at all positions on the track with the powerful Race Studio 2 professional software. Your data will be displayed in graphs, histograms and tables. This software is currently used by thousands of users all around the world.
SmartyCam HD Connection
SoloDL can easily be connected to the AiM SmartyCam HD, creating an even more powerful system. Save & Exit
The on-board camera accepts data from SoloDL, both GPS and ECU based data, and overlays the data directly onto the videos.
SmartyCam HD can read the ECU data and GPS laptimes sampled by SoloDL
On SoloDL display you can see SmartyCam HD status details i.e. the amount of free microSD card memory, battery level, recording status, diagnostic messages, etc
SmartyCam HD can record SoloDL data on its microSD card, for more convenient and quicker data management.
Later, on your PC you can easily synchronize data and video for an even more powerful solution.
Aim systems acquire data from the ECU of your vehicle. The list of available ECU drivers, constantly updated and upgraded, is published here: it includes over a 1,000 different ECUs, either Stock and Racing. They are sorted by manufacturer/vehicle model: for each ECU you find the proprietary communication protocols, including the standard OBDII ones. From a hardware point of view, AiM systems manage the following data lines:
LCU-One Lambda controller range of products has been designed to maximize your engine performance, fine tuning the carburetion.
Through the analysis of the remaining oxygen, LCU-One points out possible oxygen excess/lack in the carburetion. LCU-One’s can detect punctual Lambda value from 0.65 to 1.6, offering you an extremely precise measurement that is very useful for your bike engine tuning. All LCU-One lambda controllers use a wide band Bosch LSU 4.9 probe either for its capacity of saving the original calibration for its entire life and for its duration. The Bosch LSU 4.9 probe, in fact, has been designed to last for more than 100,000 km.
