F1 2018

The SIM Dashboard Server application should already be installed.
The application supports you with an automatic configuration feature which can enable telemetry of F1 2018 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.

Make sure to NOT activate the Broadcast mode in the in-game telemetry settings and run the SIM Dashboard Server PC Application simultaneously. Otherwise the Android app cannot work (and even crash), as it receives the data from the game AND the PC application twice. If you like to forward the telemetry data to another application have a look on this help page.


The SIM Dashboard App gives you additional gauges for your favorite PC, PS4 & XBOX SIM Racing games. Select from more than 200 customizable widgets and create your personal display. Tachometer, Steering wheel display or timing screen, everything is possible, it's up to you.

Overview

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 2018 is selected in the list.

  1. The red X shows that F1 2018 is currently not configured
  2. This is the port on which the SIM Dashboard Server application listens for data from F1 2018.

If you changed the port, click on this button to save the settings 3. This button sets the F1 2018 configuration, so that it sends data to the SIM Dashboard Server application on the selected port (F1 2018 must be closed when using this button).

Automatic configuration

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 2018 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 2018 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 2018 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!

Manual configuration

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 "Broadcast Mode" to: OFF

and the "IP Address" to: 127.0.0.1 and the Port to 20777.

The Send Rate should be set to 20Hz.
Set the Format to 2018

Please note: The game starts to send data not before the race is started.

Info: If multiple devices/applications in the network should receive the data you can forward the data using the UDP Telemetry Forwading Tab in the SIM Dashboard PC Application.

Make sure to NOT activate the Broadcast mode in the in-game telemetry settings and run the SIM Dashboard Server PC Application simultaneously. Otherwise the Android app cannot work (and even crash), as it receives the data from the game AND the PC application twice. If you like to forward the telemetry data to another application have a look on this help page.
