    * Keyboard input is now supported. To enable this make sure the 'Check Keyboard' option in the Buttons tab is selected. Then in the Select Button Dialog, type the key you want to control the specified function.

    * Implements the new features from v2021.4 of the Z1 Designer.

    * When running the Dashboard with the title bar set to 'None' or 'Thin' you can now resize and drag the Dashboard around as you would with a bordered window. To move it just click near the top of the Dashboard window where a title bar would normally be, and move it to the desired location. To resize you can click and drag any edge, or the resize area at the bottom right.

    * When running the Dashboard with the title bar set to 'None' or 'Thin' you can now exit the Dashboard by clicking on the red X at the top right of the 'Waiting For Connection' screen. Note that this is only active when you are not connected to a sim.

    * Rendering updates to improve overall clarity, especially when using Windows scaling other than 100%.

    * Updates to various dialogs to bring them up to date with the latest look and feel of the Z1 software.

    * Various tweaks to the settings dialog.

    We've added a new category to the Dashboard Gallery: 'Newly Added Dashboards'. This displays any dashboards that have been added in the past 14 days. This is intended to make it easier to find newly added dashboards.

    We've added 28 dashboard in that time (look for those by Z1). Other designers have also uploaded new dashboards as well.

    You can see all the dashboards here:

    Version 2022.3 of the Z1 Dashboard is here! This new version brings a long awaited addition - Arduino LED compatibility.

    Arduino LEDs are now supported.

    Settings up Arduino LEDs is easy with the Z1 Dashboard.

    Codemasters F1 22 is now supported.

    F1 22 is now supported. In addition there have been many ease of use improvements.

    Existing users can get the update here:
    https://z1simwheel.com/dashboard/MyDashboard.cfm

    Full list of release notes:
    * Arduino LEDs are now supported. You will need to run the Z1 Arduino LED setup app to load the Arduino sketch on to your Arduino device. You can download this setup app from within the Z1 Dashboard Arduino settings tab. Once you run the setup app and configure your device you will see it available within the Z1 Dashboard Arduino settings tab. The Dashboard will automatically recognize the device and display its settings for you.

    Each device can have multiple profiles. These profiles are all setup within the Dashboard's Arduino settings tab. You can specify which LEDs are associated with shift lights, and which ones are associated with the left and right warning lights.

    Just like any other device, you specify when the LEDs illuminate on a car-by-car basis using the Shift Lights and Warning Lights settings tabs.

    * Added a simplified setup dialog that will run the first time you run the Z1 Dashboard. This helps guide new users with setting up certain key features of the Dashboard.

    * The 'Amount Units', 'Show Fuel As', and 'Gallon Size' settings have been replaced.

    * The 'Amount Units' setting from the General tab has been replaced with 'Fluid Units'. This controls how fluids, such as water level or oil level are displayed.

    * The way in which fuel levels are displayed has been simplified. There is now an option on the General tab called 'Fuel Units'. This has the options of liters, kilograms, US gallons, UK gallons, or pounds. This is a global setting for how fuel is displayed.

    * You can customized the way in which fuel is displayed for a specific car by going to the Car tab and looking for the 'Show Fuel As' option. This option has the following options: liters, kilograms, US gallons, UK gallons, pounds, and inherited. If you choose inherited, then the global setting will be used. Choosing any other option will override the global option with the selected format when running this car.

    * Fuel settings from previous versions of the software will be preserved and translated to fit the new list of options.

    * Updates to the settings dialog to clarify the function of certain settings.

    * If you have registered the Z1 Dashboard using the Z1 Server option, then the Z1 Dashboard will only connect to the Z1 Server. Previously it could connect directly to a sim even if you had the Z1 Server registration option selected, which could cause registration issues.

    * There is a new setting in the Shift Light settings tab: External LEDs override dashboard LEDs. When this setting is turned on and you have external LEDs connected to the Z1 Dashboard, any shift light LEDs in dashboards created in the Z1 Designer will be hidden. In addition the LED setup display in the Shift Light settings tab will reflect the number of shift light LEDs on your external device instead of the number of shift lights on the first dashboard. This option is turned on by default.

    * The left and right warning LEDs can now be assigned to illuminate when the rev limiter is engaged, or the shift point RPM is reached.

    * Codemasters F1 22 support.

    * Added driver name formatting options of 'Last Name, First Initial', and 'Last Name Only' to the existing options of 'First Name Last Name' and 'Last Name, First Name'. This option is set in the Display settings tab. It is used whenever the driver name is displayed, in places like track maps or standings, etc.

    * Edit Mode has been deprecated.

    Version 2022.4 of the Z1 Dashboard is now available.

    Don't forget our current end of year sale includes discounts of up to 50% off.
    Use the code GOFASTER22 when purchasing.


    In addition to implementing various new features from the Z1 Designer, the Dashboard also gets updates for Arduino support, Vocore/USBD480 support, more data channels, improved button assignments, and easier external LED implementations.

    Improved Vocore/USBD480 Support

    Customizable Arduino Baud Rate

    Existing users can get the update here:
    https://z1simwheel.com/dashboard/MyDashboard.cfm

    New users can download the demo here:
    https://z1simwheel.com/dashboard/trybuy.cfm

    Full List of release notes:
    * There is now a default baud rate option in the Arduino settings tab. This specifies the default baud rate to use with your Arduino device. If the Arduino.xml does not contain a baud rate for the device then whatever is selected in the drop down will be used.

    * There is now a button option to reset the average fuel per lap.

    * When using USBD480 or Vocore screens, the FPS rate is now limited to 30 FPS by default. This is to help with bandwidth issues. You can manually change this by turning off Auto Settings and then changing the FPS rate in the General settings tab. Note a higher FPS rate on these screens isn't really necessary and can cause the screen to hang if you don't have enough USB bandwidth.

    * Support for Vocore 6.8" screens.

    * In the Shift Lights settings tab, changing the color of the Shift LEDs will cause external LEDs to illuminate immediately if you have Active Preview enabled. This allows you to see your color choices in action.

    * In the Shift Lights settings tab there is a slider under the shift light RPM display. If you are using an external device and have Active Preview enabled you can use this slider to preview what the LED settings will look like on your device at a specific RPM value.

    * There is now an option to set the font size in the General Statistics garage screen. This option is located in the General settings tab under the Garage display section. Leaving this option set to its default value of Auto will let the Dashboard determine the font size to use.

    * There is a new option in the Buttons settings dialog called 'Check By State Change'. This is on by default. When this option is on button assignments will be done when the state of the button changes from Off to On. When the option is turned off, assignments will happen when a button is detected in the On state. The purpose of this feature is to be able to assign buttons that are toggle switches or other buttons that may not be simple On/Off buttons.

    * AMS2 - added support for ride heights, inner/middle/outer tire temps, DRS, ERS deployment mode, headlight flash active.

    * iRacing - added support for the Power Steering adjustment, traction control active, headlight flash active.

    * ACC - added support for traction control active, headlight flash active.
