FAQ

Q: What is the difference between AiM Solo and AiM Solo DL?
A: AiM Solo DL is an upgraded version of AiM Solo that can integrate with ECUs to download additional racing data.

Q: Can AiM Solo be upgraded to AiM Solo DL?
A: No. They are completely separate units.

Q: In terms of hardware, what is the difference between AiM Solo DL CAN and AiM Solo DL OBDII?
A: The main unit is the same, only the harness is different.

Q: Can AiM Solo DL connect to a camera such as GoPro?
A: No. AiM Solo DL only supports integration with SmartyCam HD.

Q: Which racing mode should be used?
A: For circuit tracks (i.e. oval and road course) and autocross (point-to-point), select Speed. For drag race, select Performance.

Q: If my track is not in the GPS Manager database, what should I do?
A: Check with the race track's safety personnel to make sure that you can safely access the start/finish line. Next, bring your Solo/Solo DL to the desired start/finish line. Then, allow the unit to discover GPS signal. Scroll through the main display screen to "OK: Start GPS Marker." Finally, press OK.
