I use FOV 110 on a 24'". It's great, never tried lower then default.
But i will see what it looks like. Don't think it will be better for me though...
Thx

Just thinking, While I use 50-55 degrees, I can see how that really hurts me at Laguna Seca. The corkscrew would be a lot better to hit correctly with a larger FOV!

I like to use around 98-89 FOV that way I can still have a good FOV and see the real rear view mirror
instead of vurtual if used on low FOV but its all personal prefferance really
(19"wide screen 1480x900) :good:

I should add that I use TrackIR so my total viewing angle, what I'm capable of seeing, is much greater. Looking into the corner, so cool!

I love my TIR!

Is it built into the game or can anyone "use" this calculator?
Yeah the calculator is inside the sim. But if you're interested in trying it out, go ahead and pm me your measurements, and I'll check it for you.

The lower FOV also adds to the realism of elevation changes of the track. The wider the FOV, the flatter the track seems.

I'm on triple screen 3x27" using 3x1280x800 via softth. I sit around 80cm from center screen; Nordschleife looks like youtube onboard videos at 55-60 for me; and that's what I set it to.

Agree with lower FOV, i also use around 75. Better view i feel, not like looking out from a tube or stg, also better for more precision driving.

I'm using a FOV of 71 - 73, sitting about 4 ft from my 58" HDTV. I've tried it at the default and it's okay, but for me, it feels more realistic with a lower FOV.
