This video shows off 4 of the specialty dashboards included with the Z1 Dashboard software. One of the great things about the Z1 Dashboard software is that you can run it on any networked computer, laptop or tablet that runs Windows. The manual is available here:. This option will display the pit stop loss overlays and all other competitors. . But when use on a secondary monitor the only thing I have is that the gear flashing for some reason isn´t as effective as on dashmeter pro or real leds of course. Anyway, here's a couple of my thoughts on why the Z1 is the best choice for me: - It supports most games, all other apps I've tried lack support for one or more of my games.
This allows users that use square displays as opposed to the wide screen displays to still be able to use these dashboards. This can be customized in the Strategy tab of the settings dialog. Ive tried the demo and it works as advertised, but before i bite the bullet and purchase it I wanted to see if there were other alternatives. I have only briefly tried the server version and another computer. It can be set to Static or Moving. If you turn this off, then the dots used to display the car locations on the track maps will not be filled in. Seem to be some bugs with that still.
I've not bought the Z1 yet, because I'm starting to wonder if I really need it, or if it's just another gadget. The box has screw holes for 6x32 screws on the back for easy mounting into a cockpit, etc. These are Stockcar 2016 Dash 1B, 2B, 3B and 6B. Thank you, Erick, I overlooked this information. This is currently only Kart Racing Pro.
Z1 currently doesn't support Wi-Fi connection so it's useless to me. Ive been looking around and it seems my only option is z1 dashboard. I tried changing the default folder inside the Analyzer, but that didn't work. It´s good if you have a second monitor you can hook up. If I dont get this will i be stuck with an old version in a few months? Any one with experience with this program or any others? For those who want to run the software on their own screen. However sometimes that can be incorrect. This should make it easier to quickly glance at these levels while racing.
Note because the track map moves around and not all parts are always visible it is likely that the pit loss displays will be off-screen and therefore not visible. It is recommended that you review the Screen Resolution Settings in order to get the best display and performance from the software on your system. The new Moving option displays the track map from your point of view. The new Moving option is available for all track maps, except Track Map 4. This can make it easier to see the track map on longer tracks, where the filled in dot map cover up some of the detail. I got a little nervous when i saw that after you purchase Z1 theres an optional monthly charge for updates.
I tried Idisplay but way to much lag. The colour are fixed on the dashes, for example, the tyres indicator never change their colours when you're heating the rubber and is extremely difficult to read numbers whilst you're racing. A specialty dashboard is one which is not car specific and is designed to present information about the car or race to you. This allows you to have both a moving and static track map in your dashboard rotation. Then rescan for laps open the select lap dialog and then click the Rescan Laps button. This video explains how you can run your Z1 Dashboard software on a separate computer or tablet from your sim using the Z1 Server software.
The position is calculated based on the track, the length of the pit lane, its speed limit and the average time it takes to make a stop. I have an extra monitor laying around and i figured why not use it as an extra display. Selecting the 'Moving' option will override the 'Render With' setting to always be 'Vector'. That is the one that the Server will connect to and display. Currently the only sim to supply this information is iRacing.
That should help us determine why you are not seeing any laps show up. This sets whether or not the fuel density is automatically determined based on data from the sim. For more information please visit. Your car is always located at the bottom center of the display and the track map revolves around this position. Static is the default and displays the track map from above as it has always been displayed. They are versions of the stock car 2016 dashboards formatted for 480x272 ratio displays. It will say 1 of 2 3,4,5, etc.
There are over 80different dashboards in the Z1 Dashboard software, and about 15 of them are specialty dashboards. This overlay lets you choose the perfect time to pit to make sure you come out ahead of your rivals, or on a clean section of track. Dashmeter Pro no longer work with rFactor 2 for me so and I can hardly get it running with my other sims either it has gone south for some reason. Previously all automatic patterns illuminated the shift lights from left to right. This option will include the sector overlays if desired, the directional arrow, the wind display, the pit stop loss overlays, the pit lane if defined, and all other competitors.
The icons and functions of the screen are controlled via 3 buttons from a joystick or wheel not included. There is a debug setting in the general tab of the Z1 Analyzer's settings dialog. These illuminate the shift lights from outside to inside. If you turn this off you can then enter the fuel density for the car. Can you set that to 'Lap Scan'. Try entering this address into the Dashboard to see if it can connect. I do have a busy wifi over here which don´t work but I used to be able to use usb tethering.
