Arrow World Premier: SmartyCam HD GPS Racing Camera!

Here are some pictures of the much anticipated SmartyCam HD. SmartyCam is a racing HD camera that overlay data (i.e. RPM, G's, brake pressure, steering wheel angle, etc.) directly on recorded videos on-the-fly. No post-processing needed!

The New SmartyCam HD also have built-in data loggers, so you will be able to analyze your track data without needing an additional data logger.

Here's a demo video I made with a non-HD SmartyCam. I will create a new demo as soon as I receive the new HD unit.

720p? That's not quite HD. At least not by today's standards. Is there anything for us Solo DL owners? I just wanted the camera to pull data from my Solo instead of me having to pay for 2 devices that do a lot of the same thing.

I've suggested this to AiM last year. I think their first step is to get the full-package SmartyCam HD ready, and later on develop a "lite" version. Will keep you posted.

Exactly. You would hope that they combine forces and work with GoPro.

Same as the old non-HD version. Pricing here: http://www.m3post.com/forums/showthread.php?t=777059

This was released literally this weekend, so some specs may change. Let me double check with AiM and report back

I like the integration, how easy is it to mount though? I like the GOPRO because it comes with very easy mounting options that are not hard to remove. Also will it work / mount on this ECS headrest mount?

It mounts just like every other camera with a standard 1/4" - 20 thread at the bottom. Therefore it will work with the ECS headrest mount no problem.

All SmartyCam HD orders will also come with a free RAM suction cup mount from M-World.

Any updates? Can this easily be integrated in a 2006 335i with MSD80 ECU?

Yes it will work with your car.

Basically SmartyCam will tap into the CANBus of your car via a connector and that's how you download information from the ECU. Alternatively, if you have a Solo DL or EVO4 that is already wired to the CANBus, you can connect SmartyCam directly to the expansion channel of the logger and download data that way.

Richard,

Will the SmartyCAM HD be able to work with a OBDII connection to a 2013 Z06?

And, since it has Data Logging, would I still have to get a AiM Solo DL? Or, can I just use the SmartyCAM?

Thanks for any info.

SmartyCam HD does not have an internal ECU interface, so to connect to the OBDII port, you will either 1) add an ECU bridge, or 2) add an AiM Solo DL.

Solo DL allows you to see lap times and other relevant data in real time in your car, while SmartyCam HD only records them for viewing post-race/session.
