MyLaps X2 Transponder Help

NASA Drivers,

It has come to our attention at NASA NorCal that MyLaps X2 Transponders are creating certain challenges for drivers.

One problem can occur when the installation of the X2 transponder and “RaceKey” devices do not match the user’s subscription as downloaded to the RaceKey device.  It is recommended that drivers first make certain that their MyLaps subscription is properly downloaded to their RaceKey device and that the installation matches the subscription type, i.e. Rechargeable or Direct Power (DP).  There may be other hardware installation issues which can complicate troubleshooting as well.

MyLaps is working with NASA to ensure a smoother install and set up and has published updated instructions and troubleshooting information. The earlier Flex (red/white) and the X260 (red) models are not affected.

Drivers may wish to delay adoption of the X2 until these issues are reliably solved. Meanwhile, if you already have an X2 transponder from MyLaps, please see the third party video instruction below:
