My poor mans "wheel screen" for g27

Discussion in 'Sim Racing Hardware' started by Greg Latty, Dec 7, 2014.

  1. Just a quick idea for anyone who wants a digital dash screen on their g27. I started with a Samsung galaxy s2 i got for free from my brother (can be found for 30-50 bucks on ebay/craigslist or use the phone of your choice). Then attached a cheapo hybrid case to the wheel by removing the upper screw and attaching the case's outer shell to the wheel. Keep in mind i had to use a different screw with a flatter head. I need to get a washer one of these days just to make it more secure.
    Now just snap in your phone and go. Even with the single screw holding it, the phone is very secure and doesnt move. And there you have it. lol
    Eventually I think Im going to make 2 brackets and raise up the phone so its using up the empty space of the wheel.

    Heres a vid showing how solid it is.
