    Any recommendations for a mount? I have a T300 wheelbase, ideally would like something I can attach to that directly

    Looks like it's possible to pick up a good refurbished one for about £75 to 90, which sounds pretty good to me

    sounds a bit expensive for such an old phone o_O

    I didn't mount it on my wheel base, I used a car mount fixed to my aluminium profile.
    Some at my league used some car solution too

    That would be great, I have a Fire HDX from a few year's back, would work well as a display

    They can be got for less in non-refurbished used condition

    That's one way of doing it! :)

    It seems I have an issue. When a race ends, the dedicated restarts a new session, then the app seems to stop or freeze on my pc, and no more data on the phone app. I'm using a custom dashboard for raceroom.
    Anyone else noticed that ?

    You have to run iRacing in OpenVR for the overlay to work.
    When you start and the popup says there is a Oculus Rift detected click Cancel.
    A second popup will say an OpenVR device has been detected click OK.
    This will force it to run in OpenVR however unfortunately iRacing doesn't support the Oculus very well via OpenVR and there is really bad distortion as you look around. I couldn't handle it and felt sick very quickly.
    See how you go but I doubt you will find it useable.

    I'm trying to get this to work, I have downloaded via steam and have the app on my phone. I cant find the server application at all. I did try downloading an older version of the server from the pyrofrog website but that didn't seem to connect to the phone and was also flagging up as a trojan virus of some kind in windows defender. Any help on getting the latest version of this working please?

    Hey,
    All the guides are hosted on Steam. You can access them by pressing the help(?) button on the main scree or by going to the following URL:
    https://steamcommunity.com/app/715670/guides/

    Specifically for setting up with Android:
    https://steamcommunity.com/sharedfiles/filedetails/?id=1262132564

    If the server file is missing your anti virus has removed it. Lately it has been a nightmare for false positives I hadn't even put up a new version of the server when from one day to the next they all decided it was a trojan. I have contacted as many scanner providers as possible and they always whitelist it but it doesn't seem to last.

    Valve themselves check any software distributed via Steam and recommend excluding Steam from virus scanners. You can read more here:
    https://steamcommunity.com/app/715670/discussions/0/3145094199303329333/

    Let me know if that helps.

    Hey guys,
    I have just updated the Open Beta of DashPanel on Steam with a server that is ready for the new data format in the next R3E patch.

    To read about switching to the Open Beta see the following thread:
    https://steamcommunity.com/app/715670/discussions/0/1736595227838102664/
    Note that in this case you should only switch to Open Beta in Steam. Leave your mobile Client versions as they are.

    As I'm based in Australia its usually some time after the updates release that I wake up and then have to download the update before I can test it out. This time you can switch to the Open Beta and continue to run (hopefully) with that until I have tested it all and promote it to the main DashPanel branch.

    Have fun.
