    I2C Serial 3.2" LCD 2004, 20x4 (Since 1.9.0)

    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

    • 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 !

    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!

    (This needs a donation button. Seriously.)

    Hello sorry for my English

    I leave you a continuation a series of links that I think may be helpful to include richard burns rally to the list of simulated that are supported by your creation "SimHub".

    I hope they can help you, in any way you can contact me to collaborate in everything in my hand unselfishly I really like your contribution and I would like to support it with all my strength.

    I am simracer and I would like to support you and help you in the project in the way that you consider most appropriate.

    I still do not use the dashboard editor but it gives me good editing and graphic design and could bring a lot of dashboard from the real ones, both from rally cars, GTs, formulas, etc.

    I hope your answer, I leave also part of the links my mail address in case you prefer to speak through it.


    http://www.symprojects.com/ (Have software compatible with most simulators)

    http://www.geocities.jp/v317mt/ (I hope you can get something from this website)

    Thank you

    Incredible work with contributions so belonging to the world of simracing is something fantastic.

    I wonder if it would be possible to make this compatible with Richard Burns Rally since it is a game that I use a lot and it is what it lacks to be complete for me.

    I hope that with new updates it will be compatible with more and more simulators.

      I always look for c# API for existing games. If you find something useable for a new game do not hesitate to notify me ;)

    I'm waiting the components to assembly my personal dash. At the moment I studied the software and I love it! I think it is very customizable. I have only a tip, is it possible adds some features to the leds? I'd like to set the Flag warning or the "Pit limiter ON" signal like in the PCU-8D .

    I spend more time customizing than playing. And not because it is difficult, but because it is very easy and fun.. there are so many customization options that I never imagined it could have. Thank you sir!

      I know that too much ! Start plying for 5 minutes, press alt+f4, dig into code to add new features ! That's my hell :D

    This dash solution is amazing. I don't like the vanilla dashes that you can get for Android/ios.
    This here is fun to put together and it looks and feels much more real.
    Thanks for you outstanding work. Even without any special knowledge it works immediately

    By far the best Arduino dashboard solution I've come across. Highly configurable and customisable. Learnt a lot about electronics and Arduino by building the dash. Even hooked up a Pro Micro based button box to control the myriad of options so I can locate the dash under my main screen. Keep up the good work.

    Very powerfull, and customizable. Would diserve a user manual, but it is fairly simple to guess the way it works. Amazing coding / hardware integration. I love the setup assistant concept which generates an arduino sketch :)
