The SIM Dashboard Server application should already be installed.
The application supports you with an automatic configuration feature which can enable telemetry of F1 2017 easily. More on that in the following tutorial. In case of Problems you can also do the configuration manually which is described at the end of this page.
This screenshot shows the Interface of the SIM Dashboard Server application. Click on the tab Games to get the shown view. Make sure that the entry F1 2017 is selected in the list.
- The red X shows that F1 2017 is currently not configured
- This is the port on which the SIM Dashboard Server application listens for data from F1 2017.
Warning If other applications get data from F1 2017 too, make sure to enable the Broadcastmode in the UDP Telemetry Settings of the game, as described in the manual steps below.
- If you changed the port, click on this button to save the settings
- This button sets the F1 2017 configuration, so that it sends data to the SIM Dashboard Server application on the selected port (F1 2017 must be closed when using this button).
This part of the tutorial is dedicated to the automatic configuration, which should always be tried first, because its much easier than the manual configuration.
Perform automatic configuration
Make sure that F1 2017 is currently not running but was started at least once!
After you set up the port (1) and clicked on Save config (2) to save the settings, click on the button Modify game config for telemetry (3).
The application updates the configuration of F1 2017 afterwards.
Automatic configuration finished
If everything worked as expected, a confirmation message (1) appears, the list shows the correct configuration (2) (with a green checkmark) and the button for the automatic configuration (3) on the right side is hidden.
You can now start F1 2017 and receive data in the SIM Dashboard Android App. Remember, that the SIM Dashboard Server application must be running while your are playing the game!
This part of the tutorial is optional and should only be performed if the automatic configuration failed for some reason.
Open UDP Settings
On the Mainscreen press the F2 Button to open the Game Options. Then click on Settings and finally on "UDP-Telemetry Settings".
Adjust the UDP Telemetry settings
Set "Toggle UDP Telemetry" to: ON
the "UDP Telemetry Broadcast Mode" to: OFF
and the "IP Address" to: 127.0.0.1 and the Port to 20777.
The sendrate should be set to 20Hz.
Please note: The game starts to send data not before the race is started.
Info: If multiple devices in the network should receive the data you can enable the Broadcastmode to ON. On some routers this can lead to slower transmission.
