Mobile Telemetry App for Project CARS 1
It is recommended that all new users use our RS Dash app instead.
pCars Dash is an iOS, Android and Windows compatible telemetry app for Project CARS 1.
It requires the following components to run
- Project CARS 1 (the game)
- Project CARS 1 Patch 7.0+ if you are a console (XBox1/PS4) user
- pCars Dash app on your iOS / Android / Windows 7+ device
- pCars Transmitter (PC only, if you want to use the shared memory interface specifically)
- A Wifi network connection between your PC/Console and your phone/tablet device.
Notice regarding Project CARS 2
New users should use RS Dash to link with Project Cars 2, this is our official companion app for Project CARS 2.
Existing pCars Dash app users can use it Project Cars 2 by enabling the compatibility option in the game which allows any companion app that worked with Project Cars 1 to be used with Project Cars 2., but there are some limitations such as pCars Dash will not have any of the new track maps.
Please also be aware that Slightly Mad Studios are creating a new telemetry interface with additional features for Project CARS 2 and this will NOT be supported by pCars Dash, so while pCars Dash can be used now, it will be limited to the same features/tracks that were available for Project Cars 1.
RS Dash will have full support for the new Project CARS 2 telemetry added once it becomes available, currently it uses the Project Cars 1 compatibility option in the interim.
The Project CARS 1 game has two telemetry interfaces. The "Shared Memory" interface which is for PC's only and the "UDP" telemetry stream which is supported on all platforms. To use the "Shared Memory" interface for the PC edition, the "pCars Transmitter" application (link below) is required to be installed and run on the same Windows based PC that Project CARS is running on.
Important Notice to PS4 / XBox1 users with Android devices: Some android devices will not work with the new broadcast UDP stream interface. If you have one of these devices and you play Project CARS on PS4/XBox1 then you will not be able to use this or any other 3rd party companion app. This is a networking restriction imposed by the manufacturer of your Android device, it is outside the control of myself and Slightly Mad Studios. In the future I will likely develop a relaying application that can be run on a PC on the same network as your console which would capture the UDP stream and convert it into something that your Android device will accept, but that is currently not available yet. Project CARS PC users with one of these problematic android devices can use the Shared Memory interface via the pCars Transmitter which will work fine as it can use the direct address of your device instead of a broadcast.
