Aim Mychron 5 2T
Better GPS and Monitor up to Two Engine Temperatures
Besides sampling all your kart data, the Mychron 5 2T features all the advantages of a new concept GPS plus a lot of new functions, designed to provide more complete and reliable information including Lap and split times, speed, RPM and one temperature as well as position on track, acceleration and much more.
The MyChron 5 2T has been designed to provide either basic info to beginners and the most sophisticated data to Karting professionals. Engineered for the most demanding racers, the MyChron5 2T permits you to monitor your kart performances via two engine temperatures instead of one. The options available are:
- Two thermocouples: to keep carburation under control
- Two thermoresistors: to measure the engine’s working temperature
- One thermocouple and one thermoresistor: to monitor the key parameters of your engine
MyChron 5 2T GPS, The Most Powerful GPS Ever!
We were all used to lap time acquisition via magnetic strips, infrared beacons or even the good old stopwatch. MyChron 5 2T completely changes the rules of the game because its built-in GPS, samples lap and split times as well as speed, position on track and acceleration with precision and reliability which is simply not comparable to traditional tools and even with previous GPS systems.
Two satellite systems offering top reliability and precision
GPS is in itself, more reliable than traditional tracking systems. Of course more accurate than stopwatches, infrared beacons and magnetic strips. No problems with misplaced or not working old magnetic strips anymore, neither with missing optical transmitters that are bundled near the finish line or even forgotten on the track! GPS always samples lap times, in any condition, independently from those traditional systems. The MyChron 5 GPS is also 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 signal. With an average of almost twenty satellites working in conjunction, MyChron 5 2T GPS guarantees absolute precision.
GPS Lap Timer Benefits are Huge
- An average of less than one meter tolerance, which means absolute precision in determining kart 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 MyChron 5 GPS is ready to operate
- No risk of missing the signal anymore, as – in case of ‘noise’ or interferences on one system – the other system will guarantee the signal continuity.
Aim Tracks Database
“With your track included in the Aim database, MyChron 5 GPS does it all by itself”
MyChron 5 GPS can recognise the finish line coordinates of hundreds of tracks all over the world. Opening Race Studio 3 you will see the huge list of tracks included in the Aim database, sorted by Nation, circuit and surface type: you will be able to create your own collection, adding/removing tracks.
Should your home track be missing, after one lap its coordinates will be automatically detected by MyChron 5 GPS and if you wish, you can download it onto your PC. This will also be sent to Aim software Dept to be included in the database. Immediately after switch-on the MyChron 5 GPS will determine its position, identify the track and start loading start/finish line coordinates. You do not need to configure it anymore before going to the track. And, above all, your data won’t get lost anymore. The MyChron 5 GPS will handle all that
Tracks Automatically Detected by MyChron 5 2T GPS
Should your home track be missing, after one lap its coordinates will be automatically detected by MyChron 5 GPS and if you wish, you can download it onto your PC. This will also be sent to Aim software engineers to be included in the database. Immediately after switch-on the MyChron 5 GPS will determine its position, identify the track and start loading start/finish line coordinates. You do not need to configure it anymore before going to the track. And, above all, your data won’t get lost anymore. The MyChron 5 GPS will handle all that
Much More Than Just Lap Times
MyChron 5 GPS samples data ten times per second i.e. position, speed and acceleration at any point of the track, including all the data needed for a precise evaluation of kart and driver behaviour, an absolute necessity to improve engine and driver performance.
To maximise readability of data, you need plenty of room. That is why MyChron 5 2T features a wide 268×128 pixel graphical display. The screen can be backlit in one of the seven available colors also the incorporated light sensor makes brightness and contrast ideal in all light conditions.
Choose Optimal Layout For Your Data
Lap and split times, best lap, RPM, gear number, track map and much more are shown in pre-configured pages: you will be able to choose the page layout you prefer to better monitor your data. At the end of your session, you can recall the summary of your three best laps: lap time, max/min RPM, speed and temperature. For your best lap, you will also see splits and best theoretical time.
Is it Your Best Lap? or Need to Shift?
The Multifunctional LEDs Will Tell You!
MyChron 5 2T features five individually configurable RGB LEDs which you can choose background colour and value thresholds for their activation. In addition, they can be configured to show your best lap/split time, monitor RPM level and even signal the right moment for gear shift.
Monitor Water Temperature or Other Parameters with Configurable Alarm LED’s
You can configure alarm LED’s as well, in order to turn them on/off depending on the values you selected including water temperature or any other parameter you may need.
Wireless Data Download with Wi-Fi Connection
The MyChron 5 2T offers the opportunity to download the data wirelessly, using an easy and safe Wi-Fi connection. No data key or PC connection are needed anymore. Wi-Fi data transfer is easily configurable via PC or keyboard.
If you need more than one gauge/PC to connect (a typical situation in a team) then it is possible to transfer data to/from all MyChron 5 devices and PC’s at the same time by purchasing an access point, which will act as a bridge between the gauges and the PC’s.
External Power or Battery Charge? You Choose.
Power your MyChron 5 2T in three different ways
MyChron 5 2T comes with a lithium battery lasting more than ten hours which can be charged at home exactly like a mobile, or on track using the box socket in the latter case you don’t need to remove it from the gauge.
If you like, you can also power MyChron5 connecting it to your kart battery.
At home, using the charger included in the kit.

On track, using the proper charger*: in this case, you do not need to remove it from the gauge.
Just use the external power cable*.
The lithium battery – not being used – can be removed: in this case the aluminum cover* is to be applied to protect the power connectors.
Race Studio 3: The Best Tool to Understand How to Go Faster
At the end of each session, your data can be downloaded and analysed in depth on your PC with Race Studio 3 software: charts, graphs and histograms will help you to understand your performance, finding out what needs to be improved.
