An extremely powerful GPS
GPS technology represents a true revolution in racing data acquisition. Now, thanks to GPS08 Module and Race Studio 3 software, as soon as you start your track session you can immediately sample lap and split times as well as speed, position and acceleration… all the information needed for engine tuning as well as for improving your driving technique.
Two satellite systems: top reliability and precision
GPS08 is more precise than most of the existing GPS systems, as it has been designed to add to the GPS satellite’s signal the Global Navigation Satellite (Glonass) system’s signal. With an average of almost twenty satellites working in conjunction, GPS08 guarantees a precision and a reliability simply not comparable to the old generation GPS systems.
The benefits are huge:
- An average of less than one meter tolerance, which means absolute precision in determining vehicle position in curves and when the finish line is very close to another track segment.
- Satellite signal is locked very rapidly. A few seconds after switch-on, the GPS08 is ready to operate.
- No risk of missing the signal anymore, as – in case of ‘noise’ or interference on one system – the other system will guarantee the signal continuity.
With your track included in the AiM database, GPS08 does it all by itself
As soon as GPS08 switches-on, it identifies its position and – if your track is included in the list of tracks stored on Race Studio 3 database – will start sampling lap times. In fact, the software stores the finish line coordinates (plus map, contact info and logo) of more than two thousands tracks, sorted by Nation, circuit and surface type: you will be able to create your own collections, adding/removing tracks as you wish. Just download your own selection to the AiM system and GPS08 will be ready to operate. Should your home track be missing, you can easily add it to your own tracklist when downloading your session files to Race Studio 3.
Much more than just lap times
GPS08 samples ten times per second position, speed and lateral/in-line acceleration at any point of the track: all the data needed for a precise evaluation of vehicle and driver behavior, which is the necessary step to improve performance. Thanks to GPS08, even the predictive lap time will be much more reliable: in any moment of your race, you will know your time gap vs. your best lap with absolute precision.
… and for vehicles with closed or solid panel roofs…
GPS08 is also available in the “Roof” version, specifically designed for easy installation on covered cars.
