The telemetry of GTR2 is enabled within a configuration file outside of the game. The SIM Dashboard Server application should already be installed.
The application supports you with an automatic configuration feature which can enable telemetry of GTR2 easily. More on that in the following tutorial.

The SIM Dashboard App gives you additional gauges for your favorite PC, PS4, PS5, Xbox One & Xbox One Series X/S 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.


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 GTR2 is selected in the list.

  1. The red X shows that GTR2 is currently not configured
  2. This button sets the GTR2 configuration, so that it provides data for the SIM Dashboard Server application (GTR2 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 GTR2 is currently not running but was started at least once!

Click on the button Modify game config for telemetry.

The application updates the configuration of GTR2 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 GTR2 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 the folder with the configuration file

Make sure that GTR2 is currently not running but was started at least once!

Open the folder C:\Users\YOURUSERNAME\Documents\SimBin\GTR2\UserData\PLAYERNAME (YOURUSERNAME must be replaced with your current username, PLAYERNAME must be replaced with the in-game name).

Open the file PLAYERNAME.PLR (PLAYERNAME must be replaced with the in-game name) with a texteditor (e.g. Notepad)

Find the Write Shared Memory entry in the textfile

Search in the opened file for the entry Write Shared Memory="0". The entry can look as shown on the screenshot.

It is also possible, that the entry is already in use (Write Shared Memory="1"), or that no entry is in the file.

Update the textfile

We now change the entry to:

Write Shared Memory="1

If no entry Write Shared Memory is available, you can just create one as described above (make sure that it is below the entry [ Game Options ]).

Now save the textfile (Make sure that the file ending is .PLR and NOT .PLR.txt!)Afterwards you can start the game.
