Brand: Mylaps Sports Timing
AMB/MyLaps car Transponders are required by more and more auto racing clubs -- and with good reason! AMB transponders have proven their durability and accuracy in all kinds of racing from SCCA to IMSA and IndyCar. A unique* identification number encoded in each transponder is automatically transmitted to a receiving loop embedded in the track at the start/finish line. The TR2 (red stripe) replaces the TranX260 used by SCCA, PCA, NASA, Midwestern Council, and others. This model is for auto racing. It is not for use on karts, motocross, or snowmobiles. It will work on road racing motorcycles (e.g., Superbikes).
The rechargeable kit includes the TR2 transponder, quick-release mounting bracket, and charging cradle with USB cord. This transponder includes a renewable 1-year subscription.
- Transponders must be mounted upright, no higher than 2 feet from the track surface (4 feet for bikes).
- The line of sight to the track must be unobstructed by metal or carbon fiber panels or tubes. Fiberglass and other composites do not completely block the signal, but they will weaken it substantially. A weak signal may be missed by the receiving loop.
- Some clubs specify the transponder mounting location -- check your rule book.
- The transponder number is printed directly on the unit. Write your transponder number in your vehicle logbook and it will always be handy!
- A 5-hour charge gives approximately 4 days of run time.
- The flashing LED indicates remaining run time. Each flash of green indicates one day of run time remaining. When the battery has less than one day left, the LED will flash red.
- The subscription can be renewed for 1, 2, or 5 years at a time (regardless of the original subscription length).
- Renewing the subscription before it expires will also renew the factory warranty. If you let the subscription expire, you can renew the subscription but not the warranty.
The TR2 Transponder requires an internet-connected and Bluetooth-enabled smartphone or tablet with the free Speedhive app to activate and manage your subscription. (Requires Bluetooth 4.0 or higher, with either Apple iOS 9.0 or higher or Android 4.3 or higher).
* How "unique"? MyLaps encodes each transponder with either a 7 digit number or a 9 digit number. Seven digits allows ten million different numbers. Nine digits allows a further one billion (with a "b") different numbers. You will NEVER find another MyLaps transponder with your number on it!
