    Warning, this LCD comes with various chip even from DX, please take into consideration that SimHub may not support it out of box, see FAQ for additional troubleshooting


    FAQ / TROUBLESHOOTING
    • MY 20x4 I2C LCD DOES NOT WORK !
    Well you've tried the LCD adventure,
    Try replacing the I2C lcd library (delete the old LiquidCrystal_I2C folder from arduino) and try this one :

    https://github.com/marcoschwartz/LiquidCrystal_I2C or this one https://codeload.github.com/marcoschwartz/LiquidCrystal_I2C/zip/master

    Also trying this 0x27 address instead of the 0x3f address should help




    Have Fun !

    PERFECT! Works fine on second screen.

    But I miss some informations about tyre wear or DRS/ERS and falgs. Will you add things like that?

      It's a massive work but yes I try to add them progressively, in the wait do not forget to check "advanced" when you pick a property, if the game have the data you will be able to find it ;)

    Found this a few weeks back and I am totally enthralled with it. The support given by the developer both on a dedicated discord channel and also on the forum is second to none. And I mean second to none. "wotever" the developer goes the extra mile (ok Kilometer he is french after all). I have never seen someone put so much effort into one of these projects. He help and calm guidance to many people who frequent the discord channel is amazing. Especially when he doing all this in his own time.

    It has brought a whole new level to my sim racing experience. With his help I have manged somewhat ham fistedly to build myself what I consider a pretty decent home dashboard.

    Just be aware that this is addictive and you may end up spending a few £'s in buying arduinos and LEDs, Tachos and even a small hdmi monitor.

    Another thing to mention is the Discord channel that is rapidly turning into a very friendly little community. If you have not joined please do the link is in the forum.

    It works, but is unusable with the low refresh rate, and I don't want to pay.

    Only this little issue.

      I understand, I have to keep some bonus to donators, what limit would you think to be fair ? I'm always open to suggestions. Also donations starts from 0.01€ from what paypal takes everything and leaves 0.00€ .I've sent licences to everybody no matter the amount donated.

    Every day you get over it.

    I have found a bug in the input mapping, or so it seems.

    I use the dash on a second monitor and when I enter in the input mapping a button to change the screen works fine only in the option of "GraphicalDashPluing.NexScreen", doing the same for "GraphicalDashPluing.PreviousScreen" does not work when I press the button selected.

    I do not know if it is a bug or some incompatibility of some kind but selecting that option ("GraphicalDashPluing.PreviousScreen") I can not make it work.

    Simply the best program to date (and certainly for long). 100% customizable, easy to use and works wonderfully.
    A big thank you Wotever.
    For my part, is missing only RBR; _)

    Tout simplement le meilleur programme à ce jour (et certainement pour longtemps). 100% personnalisable, facile d'emploi et fonctionne à merveille.
    un grand merci Wotever.
    Pour ma part, ne manque que RBR ;_)

    I've tried several smartphone apps (and paid money for at least one) but never found a solution that was so much satisfying plus works out of the box as SimHub.

    Thank you for your work!
