Shifting Leds & Software

Post by MadManCK » Sun May 25, 2014 1:16 pm

I normally use Fanaleds for my Fanatec stuff, but there are other cool software programs that can make the shifting lights work in a lot of games.

SLI MAX Manager is free to use with Logitech G27 and Fanatec wheels.

Or the cool emulator SLIEMU for smartphones, that can turn your smartphone into a useful display during your races 8-)

For those who want a really cool Shift Led setup, there are standalone devices that can do a lot more than the built in shifting lights of your wheel.

Like SIM Display

Looks very nice as well. I was looking for this company too. 8-)

And another nice software application to run the shifting lights

There are a lot of cool mounting options for those led panels, depending on your wheel. But i have seen mounts for T500RS, Logitech G27 and Fanatec CSW.

Like this one for the CSW. Comes with nice button box as well.

The latest version of SLI Max Manager supports GRID Autosport as well.
It is free to use for Fanatec and Logitec users.

It makes the shifting lights work and shows speed, gears etc. on the display of your wheel. Just the working shifting lights alone is epic already.

The LED displays that are emulated on the smartphone are from Leo Bodnar

Rumor is that these will probably popup in a Fanatec product in the future :2thumbsup:

A lot of cool options to create a cool dash. 8-)

Fanaleds

http://fanaleds.com/hardwaresupport" onclick="window.open(this.href);return false;

Fanaleds works with Logitech G27 as well. I use it as default for my Fanatec CSW and it rocks.

Cool part about it is the native support for fanatec products and the wide range of addiitonal gear it supports as well. Including Sim Instruments dash.

I think that the Sim Instruments dash is the best offer around for dashboards as it also includes a small LCD, in addition to the shifting lights and digits.

Just ordered my Sim Instruments Dash from Australia.

Looks awesome and is a nice fit for my rig.

I chose this one, as it is compatible with Fanaleds and therefore supports almost every driving game i use.
And it is a very nice piece of kit.

:2thumbsup:
