All-in-One and Extremely Easy to Use

Powered by an internal rechargeable battery, AiM Solo is designed to be used standalone, without any external wires or sensors.

When you arrive at a race track, simply switch it on and AiM Solo will recognize the race track automatically and start recording lap times and logging racing data.

High-Accuracy 10Hz GPS
with Predictive Lap Timing


Forget about infrared lap beacons and external antennas. AiM Solo's internal GPS antenna is capable of 1/100 of a second precision. Moreover, GPS predictive lap timing calculates and displays the difference between your current lap and your previous best lap in real time - a perfect tool for time trial and time attack drivers!



Designed for the Harshest Racing Conditions


AiM Solo is extremely durable: heat resistant up to 170 deg. F., totally protected against dust, and water proof to 3.28 feet of water. So whether you race a closed-roof sports car or a motorcycle, AiM Solo will work rain or shine.
 

     
A Powerful Data Logger

Seat-of-the-pants can't get you any faster?

AiM Solo is a data logger which records racing data such as speed, g-forces, lap times, and track position in real-time. Data can then be exported into Race Studio 2 for post-race analysis.

Don't worry if you've never played with data before. Below is a document to get you started.

    OBD2 Connection Model

    The OBD2 model plugs directly into your car's OBD2 service port for basic data (up to 9 channels for most cars). On some cars, such as the Nissan GT-R and Porsche 911 (991 generation), proprietary protocols are available from AiM, allowing for more channels to be read via OBD2. Please check AiM's ECU Compatibility page for details.

    In terms of installation, you will simply plug the supplied OBD2 cable into your car's OBD2 port, and Solo DL will automatically start reading and recording data.

    CAN Connection Model

    The CAN model is capable of receiving up to several-dozen channels of data via a direct connection to the ECU via CAN bus. These channels include wheel speeds, brake pressures, RPM, gas pedal position, steering wheel angle, oil & water temperatures, ambient temperature plus more.

    Plug-and-play kits are available for select cars and motorcycles. Please see detailed information in the table below.

    AiM Solo

      AiM Solo DL
    "My favorite feature is +/- best, where I can see, in real-time, how I'm doing against my best lap. This gives me instantaneous feedback on where I've made good adjustments vs not-so-good adjustments, where I'm making mistakes, where I'm choosing the right line, etc..." Read full review

    "It seems a lot of people say this is good for when you've already gotten very fast and are looking for just a little bit more. However, I think it is equally great for the less experienced drivers like me..." Read full review

    "got my first chance to use the SOLO today out at pacific raceways. i downloaded the track before heading down and it worked perfectly..." Read full review
      "Special thanks to Richard at M-World for the AiM setup and for answering a bunch of my questions. The harness he provides makes it trivially simple to gain ECU/CAN connectivity!" Read full review (E92 M3)

    "Am very happy with the results now that I can get throttle, brake, steering angle, gear, clutch, wheel speeds, temps, and tons of other data that I can analyze over and above what you would get if you simply plugged the unit into the OBD connector." Read full review (E46 M3)

    FAQ    
         
    Q: What is the difference between AiM Solo and AiM Solo DL?
    A: AiM Solo DL is an upgraded version of AiM Solo that can integrate with ECUs to download additional racing data.

    Q: Can AiM Solo be upgraded to AiM Solo DL?
    A: No. They are completely separate units.

    Q: In terms of hardware, what is the difference between AiM Solo DL CAN and AiM Solo DL OBDII?
    A: The main unit is the same, only the harness is different.

    Q: Can AiM Solo DL connect to a camera such as GoPro?
    A: No. AiM Solo DL only supports integration with SmartyCam HD.

      Q: Which racing mode should be used?
    A: For circuit tracks (i.e. oval and road course) and autocross (point-to-point), select Speed. For drag race, select Performance.

    Q: If my track is not in the GPS Manager database, what should I do?
    A: Check with the race track's safety personnel to make sure that you can safely access the start/finish line. Next, bring your Solo/Solo DL to the desired start/finish line. Then, allow the unit to discover GPS signal. Scroll through the main display screen to "OK: Start GPS Marker." Finally, press OK.
