AiM Solo is a new generation of GPS lap timer & data logger for cars and motorcycles. It is extremely easy to use, small in packaging, but as powerful as professional devices.
AiM Solo is a must-have learning tool for track drivers and bikers of 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.
Winter Special: Free suction cup mount. Free shipping.
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.
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.
PnP Kits for BMW and Porsche Cars
M-World offers exclusive plug-and-play harnesses based on the Solo DL CAN model that connect directly to Porsche and BMW ECUs, with absolutely no cutting or splicing. Each kit includes step-by-step installation instructions.
PnP Kits for BMW, Ducati, and Yamaha Motorcycles Plug-and-play harnesses and model-specific mounts are also available for BMW, Ducati, and Yamaha bikes, making installation a breeze.

Reviews from M-World's Customers
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)
"A big thanks to the folks at http://M-World.us making the impossible happen and getting my AIM Solo DL to me before last Sunday's autocross!"Read full review (E82 135i)
