Talk to me about this laptimer you're using. I have a a GPS laptimer but the software to yank data out of it is garbage. I'm looking for something that works.

what would you like to know about it? what are you currently running?

mine is the Aim SOLO, which a bunch of folks seem to be running these days. IMHO, it generally works pretty well (I've liked the other Aim timers I've used in the past, though). I think the software is decent, although a little intimidating at first.

it does have its quirks (it is italian, after all) - can't see battery life until the GPS synchs up, when the battery gets low it may not synch GPS correctly or take a super long time to do so, the software doesn't like computing the initial lap and final lap splits correctly (the lap time itself is correct, but the splits within those laps can be suspect)

all in all, I'm pretty please with it and would buy it again if I had to. much better experience than I had with beacon timers.

I currently have this. As a stand-alone laptimer it works well enough, but I've yet to figure out how to get it to communicate via bluetooth with the included software, and the "finish line detect" function thats supposed to allow it to "remember" tracks doesn't seem to work for so I have to actually go out, and mash a button every single trackday in the first session to set the finishline.

Looking good, Scott.

There is only one lap timer that matters, and that is your transponder. It never lies...

the Solo is preprogrammed for all the tracks we've been running since I bought it. Haven't tested GSS yet, but will do so this weekend. I've never had a problem with it remembering a location, though, except when the battery starts running down. I may install a hardwired/switched power lead on my GSXR to avoid that problem in the future (thanks to Gavin for that idea this past weekend... ).

I seriously considered a Starlane when I looked at the Solo, but only knew of one person with one (Tom Anderson) and he had a mixed review of it at that point in time. I talked to several folks with the Solo and heard mostly positive things. I considered the GPX Pro, too, but that was pretty overkill for my needs.

Thanks! You're too kind, though - that was just me holding him up for a couple of laps... Once he got in front of me going into the crossover section, he checked out. (I blew the carousel exit trying to pile on some additional speed to keep up. )

I showed him the video and he said you were ridding really well and that you were hard to pass. He also asked me to apologize to you, he didn't realize that he sawed you off in T12.
