AiM MX2E Elise/Exige specific dash


Recommended Posts

Looks like AIM won’t support the dash fitted to FE cars.

“If it is, then i am afraid you cannot connect a rear view camera or a GPS module. I am unsure of the Wifi question, i would recommend contacting Lotus directly as it is technically a Lotus dash in your car and not an AiM.”

“Okay, as i said unfortunately the dashes supplied direct from Lotus are inherently different to the AiM MX2E dash that we can supply. A lot of the features are locked as per Lotus specification. I cannot help with the WiFi password, you'll have to contact Lotus directly to get some more information on this.”

Upgrade today to remove Google ads and support TLF.

That doesn't look promising. I wonder if Lotus will have any interest in updating FE dash in future. At least rear camera would be nice to have. Or option to flash it to AiM.. which looks awful (UI wise), but has loads of nice features.

This is quite puzzling if true. I find it very hard to believe that Lotus would offer dash support for a tiny number of FE cars sold so why they bothered fitting one in the fist place? Maybe that's why they locked it down to only have basic features in - if it breaks they simply replace.

Probably just treating it as per the old Stack/Sherlock units. As you say, if it breaks just replace it. Although, that’s pretty much what you would have to do with a broken MX2 unit…🤔

So I spoke to AIM Support.

it’s called MXLotus, not mx2e.

they won’t share the Wi-Fi password as it’s “fully supported by lotus not AIM”.

trying to find someone to help in Lotus? Difficult.

just seems lotus hamstrung the device due to type approval and now trying to get back some of the great aim functionality will be difficult.

having now spoken to someone in ASO, it seems they have the code but not willing to share?


“Yes I believe the ports are there butt eh functionality isn’t.

Apologies I am not in a position to supply an access code”

so, aim can’t help as they’ve clearly a contract that says it must go via Lotus and Lotus won’t help as it’s now an abandoned platform.

From everything I’ve had from AiM it certainly seems it could/would but Lotus have chosen to hamstring it.

Even if Lotus would let AiM add functionality, what would be their incentive to do that? They can just push mx2e's now to final edition owners sadly :( There is still some hope that Lotus will do something, but I wouldn't count on it.
