SmartyCam GP HD with Bullet Cam

Just like SmartyCam HD, there are also three models to choose from for SmartyCam GP HD: Standalone, Advanced Standalone, and Integration. Details are down the page.
Record HD Videos
At the end of your race or track day, videos will be available for playback, sharing and analysis on the spot... saving you the trouble of using third party software to synchronize data with videos.
Here is an example of data available on videos captured by SmartyCam HD:
Basic data such as GPS speed and g-forces
Advanced data such as RPM and throttle (when connected to ECU)
Everything is Automatic!
SmartyCam HD is smart. It automatically recognizes your race track and start/finish line based on its internal race track database. It also automatically switches on and records videos without a single press of button. And finally, it will stop recording and switch itself off when the race is over.
SmartyCam HD is designed to take care of itself so that you can focus on driving!

Three Models Available
(Applies for both SCHD and SCGPHD)
The Standalone Model is designed to by itself record racing videos overlaid with basic technical data, GPS position and lap times. It includes a GPS module for lap timing and position tracking. Here is a list of what are recorded:
The Advanced Standalone Model adds ECU integration capability to the Standalone Model, allowing advanced data to be visualized onto your videos, for example:
Oil pressure and temperature
There are two ways to connect SmartyCam HD to the ECU, OBD2 or CAN, depending on your vehicle's make and model. Please check AiM's ECU Compatibility page for more details.
Finally, the Integration Model is designed to work in conjunction with a compatible AiM data logger. Through the data logger, advanced data will be transmitted to SmartyCam HD to be added to your HD videos. Here is a list of compatible data loggers:
"The Solo DL integrates with the ECU and records a plethora of data including throttle response, brake pressure, lap time, GPS speed, and the list goes on and on. The SmartyCam overlays the data collected by the Solo DL to a captured video file. When using the two products together an instructor can easily analyze collected data (e.g., brake points, the line, etc.) without having to be in the car with the driver." Read full review (E92 M3)
