What tracks are available to download into the AIM MX2E digital dashboard?
Being a digital product it means the AIM team have been able to install hundreds of racing circuits from around the world into the unit. Richard took his Lotus Exige Sport 410 to do a track day at Eastern Creek which was picked up instantly via the built in GPS unit. Switching the vehicle on near a track, the module will automatically recognise the venue and start to download the start/finish coordinates and calculates lap times when these coordinates are crossed.
If the track is not in the database, it is possible to create and load it into the database using Race Studio 3 software, freely downloadable from AiM. Drivers can download the start/finish line co-ordinates so they can calculate lap times, then analyse performance in real time on the digital display or later by downloading data to a laptop. The system even features a camera input, allowing drivers to add an optional portable action camera to capture the action from each track day lap.
