    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 !

    Great software.
    But I have one question: Am I right that I need an arduino micro or leonardo to get buttons to work? I tried it with the nano, but it didn´t work.
    Thanks in advance.

    Since I was ready, I tried it with the unlock version. I mainly use Dash Studio functions, but I felt very interesting as a framework. Although I am using HUD of another author of rF2 this time, I thought that it would be good if this screen would come out for the first time in the running screen of the car. Although my setting may be incomplete.

    I built a steering wheel with a 4.3" LCD screen and RGB LED shift lights which are controlled through Simhub. It is very powerful once you figure it out. Developer support is great and there are constant improvements. In fact, it is easy to lose track of all of the features added because the program is updated so frequently. The added Shakeit integration for my pedal and seat motors was seamless for me, and now I only have to launch one program to control everything. When I first downloaded the program a few months ago, I had the free version and after a few hours I donated 5 euros just to get rid of the nag screen while testing dashes on my little USB monitor. This was before I really knew how vital this software was going to be for me. The steering wheel I built shortly after wouldn't function without it. So, consider how much work goes into this and the options it gives the DIY community and help keep it alive. I, for one, am very thankful for your work.

    It is a perfect dashboard program.
    And the support channel is great.
    You can expect very fast answers.

    It is my system made with SimHub.
