Traqmate Traqdash Full Color Display


It's what I want for Christmas: this new display from Traqmate is compatible with your existing sensor unit and uses a touchscreen, iPhone style interface. Lap times, Shift lights, assignable gauges, Warning lights, predictive lap timing, but also text input which allows setting up the unit without the need for a computer.

UPDATE: After some sensible comment from you guys, I checked in with Traqmate to see how they solved the issue of a touchscreen device which would be operated with gloves.
As I imagined, being track guys, they had that taken care of: the screen does not work with finger contact, like the iPhone but rather is made to work with pressure. So using gloves is not an issue.

Along with the Traqdash display, Traqmate announced integration with Racecam HD. An HD update of the well known specialized motorsport camera, the RaceCam HD features 1080p video, a built in screen and external mic input all wrapped in a tough aluminum case. It will be able to be started and synced from the Traqmate.

The TraqDash display will be priced at $799.00 while the RaceCam HD will be $1499.00 (more after jump)

  1. wow $799 for that display! thats quite alot

  2. the least expensive AIM product is $899...

  3. I dunno. I've been waiting for the Traqmate display, but when I got the email about this yesterday, it somehow didn't move me to plunk down money for the pre-purchase. The MyChron plus IMHO appears to be a more professional item - and it's actually $749.00 if I'm not mistaken!

  4. Predictive lap timing is a really cool feature. Nobody uses traqmate on karts that I know of but this could push me over the edge. The AIM kart systems don't do predictive timing, don't know if their car systems do.

  5. touch screen + nomex racing gloves ?

  6. @heeltoer good point. However, they guys at Traqmate are Spec Miata racers, I'm sure they thought of that one.
