The Race Data revolution is here.  Now you can live-stream AiM, MoTeC, Race Technology, and more to Podium

Live-stream your racing to Podium, the social network where you can do real-time analysis on engine, chassis, and driver performance. Share and compare your laps with crew, friends, race coaches, and fans around the world.

Set your data free! Using cellular-based telemetry, PodiumConnect brings together different data systems in a powerful way. Easily compare laps between AiM, MoTeC, Race Technology, and other GPS-enabled data systems, all in the cloud, and in real-time.

High performance and super responsive

With PodiumConnect’s on-board 4G cellular you’ll get up to 10Hz streaming and fast response while viewing your telemetry.

How much telemetry does that give you? Here are a few examples for a reasonable load of 32 channels at a mix of 1/5/10Hz:

Length of Race     Approximate usage
4 hours     30MB
17 hours     130MB
24 hours     183MB

The built-in worldwide 4G module also works with any GSM carrier, including:
Country     Carrier
USA     AT&T, T-Mobile, FreedomPop
UK     Vodaphone, O2, Tesco, Three
EU     Vodaphone, Lycamobile
Australia     Telstra, VodaPhone
Canada     Rogers
Brazil     Claro, Vivo

Powerful, instant analysis – no need to transfer files

Now you have no files to transfer and no data cables to connect: your data streams in real-time to Podium where it can be reviewed by race coaches, monitored by your pit crew, or broadcast to fans around the world, right now! Uncover what will make a difference in your driving or car performance during your race or practice, while still on track.

Powerful time-gap analysis

Compare laps in real time and see where on track you’re falling behind or gaining time – race coaches will love the ability to tune the nut behind the wheel while the driver is on track – no need for off-line “data download” classrooms!

Compare your laps between friends and sessions

Regardless of the system your friends are using, you’ll be able to compare lap times, sensors, GPS position, driving line and more using the powerful tools available on Podium – across many laps or just one:

Follow and be followed by your favorite racers

Follow other racers, view their laps, and get notified when they’re on track. Then, compare their laps to yours. What are their racing secrets?

Claim the top lap time at your favorite race track.  See who else is running at your favorite tracks. Compare the laps they’ve shared and see where you stack up!

Add an auxiliary dash

Use the powerful RaceCapture app to create a secondary dashboard to show additional sensor data, plus enable pit-to-car alerts*!

Download the RaceCapture app from Google Play, iTunes or the Amazon app store.

Supplemental Gauges

Customise the dashboard screen to show custom gauges and advanced visualizations, including a tire temperature heatmap!

Pit-to-car alerts

Enable pit-to-car alerts* to get the attention of your driver. Great for endurance racing!

Stream up to 100 sensor channels

Two CAN 2.0 compliant busses let you connect your compatible AiM or MoTeC or other system, in addition to any sensor network you have on your race car.

If it’s CAN enabled, we can read it! Here are some examples:

    High performance GPS from your existing data system
    G-forces and gyro data from your existing data system
    Calculated predictive lap times
    Multi-zone tire temperature sensors
    TPMS sensors
    Engine sensors such as oil pressure, engine temperature, RPM, throttle position, and more
    Thermocouple arrays
    Aero / Strain gauges
    Ride height sensors
    Driver input such as steering angle and brake pressure
    Bio-sensors such as heart rate and body temperature

Easy to use presets

It’s simple to map CAN channels from data systems such as AiM, MoTeC and others, or map high performance ECUs such as AEM, Hondata, Emtron, Haltech, PE3, Link G4, Megasquirt and more. Or, connect to OBDII and OEM CAN bus networks like the BMW E46 or Porsche – all at the touch of a button.

No CAN bus? If your system streams data over RS232, like the RaceTechnology DL1 and DL2, we can connect to that as well.
Compatible with AiM

PodiumConnect works with your GPS-enabled Smarty Cam compatible AiM systems, including:

    MXL/MXL2 Dashboards
    MGX, MXS Dashboards
    EVO4/5 Loggers
    Solo2 DL
    AiM Pista dashboards

…and more! Plug right into your data hub with the included cable and live-stream GPS, G-forces, lap times, engine sensors and more.
Compatible with MoTeC

PodiumConnect works with nearly every MoTeC dash, logger and ECU, including:

  •     ADL dash / logger displays
  •     M8XX/M1XX series ECUs
  •     C series and D-Series dashboards

Simply connect two wires, select a pre-set CAN bus configuration and you’re good to go – live-stream GPS, G-forces, lap times, engine sensors and more.

PodiumConnect works with the GPS-enabled Race Technology DL1 and DL2 loggers, and connects to the standard serial data port for access to all of the available channels.

Got a different system? Talk to us – it will likely work!

If it supports broadcasting GPS + sensor data over CAN or RS232, PodiumConnect can handle it. Just tell us what you have and we can help.
No data system?

If you don’t have a data system – good news, we have you covered: Check out the RaceCapture line of full-featured telemetry systems!

Additional Capabilities

WiFi connectivity

Configure and manage without connecting a cable: PodiumConnect is equipped with WiFi connectivity for wireless management and configuration.

GoPro Camera Control

PodiumConnect can control a WiFi-enabled GoPro camera, triggering it from one of your data channels – like Speed or RPM – automatically starting your camera when you’re ready to race.

An SD card slot is provided for local data recording – great for importing into external analysis and visualization tools like RaceRender and more.

Compact, lightweight and rugged

At only 85 x 85 x 36mm (3.35 x 3.35 x 1.41in) and 170g (6oz) it’s easy to install and conserves precious weight.
Comprehensive status indicators

Indicators for WiFi, Telemetry, CAN and Serial communications are provided on the front for quick status at a glance.

Just one cable to connect to your data system

It’s easy to set up. Just:
