Based on "pCars Dash", the must have companion telemetry app for Project Cars, RS Dash builds on that popular app to add support for Project Cars 2, F1 2017, F1 2016, RaceRoom Racing Experience, Assetto Corsa, RFactor 2, AutoMobilista and iRacing.
Please note, this app is not free, in-app purchases are required to activate each racing game interface depending on which of these racing simulators you own.
RS Dash features real-time vehicle telemetry of crucial vehicle data. Designed by a race car driver for race car drivers it includes graphing of rpm, speed, gear, throttle and brake position per lap and a lap chart system including sector by sector breakdown.
Get the advantage over your opposition by knowing exactly whats going on with your car at all times. Every litre of fuel adds extra weight and costs you time, not sure how much fuel you need for a race? RS Dash provides live fuel usage statistics so you can see exactly how many liters you need to put in your tank for each racing lap.
Want more? There is also a HUD and one of the most important things, a dedicated race page showing you critical fuel, tire (wear/temps), brake (temps), damage and lap timing, a must have for any racer.
Note: Feature availability in RS Dash depends on the racing game this app is being used with as the different games offer varying degrees of telemetry data.
This app will work with both the PC and Console versions of Project Cars 2, F1 2017 and F1 2016. Important Note: Console users of Project Cars 2 require Project Cars 2 patch v2.0 or newer which adds the option for the UDP telemetry to be enabled.
For RaceRoom Racing Experience, Assetto Corsa, RFactor 2, AutoMobilista and iRacing this app will only work with the Windows PC version of those racing games and will require the "RS Transmitter" application to be installed on the same PC as the game. The "RS Transmitter" application can be downloaded from the Pocket Playground website.
F1 2018 - Added support for assigning controller buttons from F1 2018 telemetry feed (note: must be in a session, not paused to perform assignments)
F1 2017/2018 - Fixed an issue with Time Trial which would result in a number of TT sessions not being exported to RS Cloud
F1 2018 - Fixed TT issue exporting additional random player "Session Results"
Ratings and Reviews
Good, not great (yet)
I think this app is definitely a good start, but I have experienced bugs and crashes (iPad 10.5, up-to-date). I’d like to see the interfaces made a bit more sophisticated looking versus the sort of simple graphics they use. Don’t get me wrong, I am still getting enjoyment out of this app. It adds great value to sim-racing. I’d also love it if the career lap time saves was more fleshed out. It would be amazing to be able to access some form of record book where you could review your top-10 times per course, per vehicle, etc.
A must-have, and a great deal
This app is incredibly useful. It not only frees up your main display(s), but can provide more telemetry in a cleaner format than the sims it supports (my frame of reference is Project Cars 2, FWIW). When my kids are racing, I can fire up my phone or iPad, sit on the couch, and give them tips without hovering over their shoulder, which is pretty cool, too.
Worth every penny, who am i kidding, worth every dime. I felt lost without this great app at the release. Do yourself a favor, buy it, after 5 min you will racing with a huge smile on your face.
