I'm trying to create my preferred display unit pages in Race Studio 3.  How do you add the track map with real-time vehicle position like it shows in the pictures (like on the box)?

You can't. That feature was vaporware....

Disappointing.  Looks like they updated their product text but some sites that have an older version say:  "Here are some examples of pages with 1, 2, 3 or 4 different data and an onscreen track map!"

 

Update from AiM:  "Yes it does exist in some adverts, unfortunately it is not a feature that has come to fruition for any of the product line at this time."

 
This is straight up false-advertising.  I'd be ok with a future release date, but sounds like that's not even a future feature.

It wouldn’t matter, their future release promises aren’t worth the bytes they’re typed in anyway. But I’m not sure what it is that’s not there.

Steve,

Take a look at our video from the Sunday Buttonwillow 2020 HST Race.  Is this the kind of map you are trying to get to display? 

 

We are running a MXG/MSX color display logger with RS3 software and a AIM Bullet Smarty Cam.  Steve has been doing this for a while.

 

If this is what you are after, I will get the details from Steve P. as to how he has it setup/configured.

Rich,

 

I have just bought the same setup - so would be interested in what Steve did.

Or I suppose I could just read the manual.....

In reality, how would you use such a feature? It doesn't seem like it'd be anything I could use in a car at speed....If you don't know where the track goes, should you be racing at speed? :-)

Ah, is that the issue, the track map showing on the dash display?? If so then I certainly wouldn’t put it on my list of things AiM should be spending time on. Of course if someone would post a picture at least we’d know what we’re outraged over. :)

I do not think it is intended to display in the logger for the Driver to be monitoring during a race rather it's intended to be imbedded into the video file so those watching later have a reference as to where the driver is on the track.  I will check with Steve but I think it is in the Smarty Cam configuration which then shares use of the "loaded" logger track map used to support the predictive lap time feature in the Dash.
