AiM Device Setup

In most cases, the AiM device will be already correctly configured, if it is not working correctly, then please follow the steps below:

  1. Connect the compatible AiM device to a PC and depending on the product, open either AiM software program RaceStudio2 or RaceStudio3.
  2. Ensure the correct vehicle is selected and then click on the 'SmartyCam Stream' tab. This will list all of the standard SmartyCam channels that are transmitted from the AiM device alongside vehicle specific CAN channels which are chosen by the software to match these standard channels.
  3. Enable all channels available to the AiM from the connected ECU
  4. ‘Transmit’ to save the configuration to the AiM device.
