Garmin Catalyst Driving Performance Optimizer

SKU: 010-02345-00
For drivers with communications built into their helmet, the Garmin Catalyst Driving Performance Optimizer's coaching prompts can be heard through your helmet's built-in communications with the addition of a few items.

Items needed for integration of Garmin Catalyst to In-Helmet Communications:

This device is an industry-first, providing virtual coaching in real time and showing a calculated optimal lap. Real time coaching tells you how to go faster in each corner, with audio instructions, so you can keep your eyes up at all times. This is in contrast to systems that only provide feedback on your inputs after a corner or at the end of session. The Catalyst uses your measured optimal lap to guide you up to your personal maximum performance, not what Hamilton or Verstappen might pull off.

This groundbreaking technology uses 10 Hz multi-GNSS positioning, image processing and built-in accelerometers to generate your racing line on the track.
After your session, immediately review the performance data on your device to see where on the track your biggest areas for improvement are.

On the track, Garmin Catalyst quickly becomes your real-time “coach,” giving audio cues via BLUETOOTH® technology from your headset or car stereo.

Garmin Catalyst crunches the numbers. So there’s no need to download data to your computer — and no cumbersome graphs with squiggly lines that leave you trying to analyze data for hours.

This revolutionary technology combines your best times for each track segment to show your optimum drivable time based on lines you actually drove and can repeat.

Easily compare performance data from your other sessions, and get immediate, adaptive suggestions to see areas where you can do better.

Which line should you track when ripping around corners? See on the map how early or late apex decisions affect your overall speed through the course.

Garmin Catalyst comes pre-loaded with a track database featuring road courses from around the world. Garmin Catalyst allows users to easily add courses to the database as well.

On the course, Garmin Catalyst keeps track of your best lap time, adaptive delta time, number of laps and total session time.

The included remote cam captures clear, crisp HD video, which can be played back on the device with time-synced overlays showing speed, lap data and more.

Secure Garmin Catalyst inside the cockpit using the included heavy-duty suction cup or the included screw down mount.

Review in-depth performance data on your 7” Garmin Catalyst device, or access a summary of your data on your mobile device or computer using the Garmin Connect™ app.
