This is the GPS module that is specific for SmartyCam HD Cameras.
The GPS08B Module for SmartyCam HD‘s with a 4-pin connector.
GPS technology represents a true revolution in data acquisition. Thanks to GPS08B Module and its GPS Manager software, you can immediately get laptimes and all data needed for engine tuning as well as for improving driving technique.
GPS08B is more precise than most of the existing GPS systems, as it has been designed to add to the GPS satellite‘s signal the Global Navigation Satellite (Glonass) system‘s signal.
With an average of almost twenty satellites working in conjunction, GPS08B guarantees a precision and a reliability simply not comparable to the old generation GPS systems.
As soon as GPS08B switches-on, it identifies its position and - if your track is included in the list of tracks stored on Race Studio 3 database - will start sampling lap times.
In fact, Race Studio 3 stores the finish line coordinates (plus map, contact info and logo) of almost two thousands tracks, sorted by Nation, circuit and surface type: you will be able to create your own collections, adding/removing tracks as you wish.
Just download your own selection to the AiM system and GPS08B will be ready to operate.
Should your home track be missing, you can easily add it to your own tracklist when downloading your session files to Race Studio 3.
GPS08B samples ten times per second position, speed and lateral/in-line acceleration at any point of the track: all the data needed for a precise evaluation of vehicle and driver behavior, which is the necessary step to improve performance.
Thanks to GPS08B, even the predictive lap time will be much more reliable: in any moment of your race, you will know your time gap vs. your best lap with absolute precision.
Thanks to GPS08B Module you‘ll get:
Cornering in-line and lateral G
Automatic lap times
The GPS09 module from AiM further expands the track mapping abilities of AiM data loggers and dash loggers. In addition, the GPS09 allows lap timing (even split times) without the use of trackside beacons, storing data for up to 50 tracks with up to 5 splits per track. The GPS09 can also calculate and log speed, lateral and longitudinal g-forces, and of course vehicle position.
The GPS09 is the latest version, boasting a quicker 25 Hz sampling rate (up from 10 Hz) and positional accuracy to less than one foot (down from 2 meters). It also takes full advantage of Race Studio 3's integration of GPS, video, and data.
Simple to install: Just connect the CAN cable to your dash and mount the magnetic-backed GPS antenna to your vehicle roof. The GPS unit willl even automatically configure itself during start-up!
The GPS09 connects via a 5-pin 712 screw-in conncetor and is compatible with current-generation AiM MXL2/ MXG/MXP/MXS auto dashes, EVO4S/EVO5 data loggers, and SmartyCam HD GP 2.2.
SmartyCam Note: Only the SmartyCam HD GP 2.2 takes this version. SmartyCam HD, SmartyCam HD GP, and SmartyCam HD 2.1 all require the AiM GPS08B which has a 4-pin connector.
MXL / EVO3 / MyChron4 Note: This version is only compatible with the latest-generation loggers; it is not backwards-compatible with the first-gen MXL, the EVO3, or the MyChron4.
Solo2/Solo2DL, MXm, and MyChron5 do not use an external GPS module; all GPS functions are internal.
