AiM Solo is a new generation of GPS lap timer & data logger for the weekend track day enthusiasts and club racers. It is extremely easy to use, small in packaging, but as powerful as professional loggers.
AiM Solo is a must-have learning tool for track drivers at all levels. For the beginner it sets a baseline for objective measurements of your improvements. For the intermediate driver it helps you practice consistency. And for the advanced/pro drivers it gives you the 0.1 seconds needed to beat the competition.
Starts at $399 with free suction cup mount. Guaranteed in stock.
Powered by an internal rechargeable battery, AiM Solo is designed to be used standalone, without any wires or sensors. When you arrive at a track, all you need to do is turning 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 sports car or an open wheel formula car, 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's, 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.
AiM Solo DL can connect to over 500 models of stock and racing ECU models via OBDII or CAN bus to display and record data such as RPM, throttle position, engine temperature, oil temperature... providing advanced drivers with critical additional data channels to work with and analyze.
The OBDII model plugs directly into your car's OBDII service port for basic data (up to 9 channels for most cars). Some cars such as the Nissan GT-R and late model Porsche support CAN over OBD, allowing for more channels to be available. Please check OBDII compatibility list for details.
The CAN model is capable receiving up to several dozen channels of data directly from the ECU.
These channels include wheel speeds, brake pressures, RPM, gas pedal position, steering wheel angle, oil & water temperature, ambient temperature plus more.
M-World offers exclusive Plug and Play Kits based on the CAN version that connect directly to Porsche and BMW ECUs, with absolutely no cutting or splicing. Each kit includes a suction cup mount and step-by-step installation instructions.
2007 or earlier C6 may have J1850 protocol and therefore not support CAN over OBD.
To verify if you have CAN,
make sure pins 4, 5, 6, 14, 16 are present in your OBDII port. See OBDII pin diagram.
Note: some C6 may not receive the steering angle channel.
"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

"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)

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.

Start driving while going through all gears across a reasonably wide rpm range -- smoothly without any hard launches or wheel spins. Note: after calibration, gear position cannot be displayed at low RPM, i.e. < 1,500. Check your gear calibration by setting up a custom screen displaying gear position.
