What's New in Version 2020.1?

With each new version of the Dashboard software it gets better and more feature rich, and version 2020.1 is no exception! This list highlights some of the changes. For a full list of release notes please see the release notes page.

Six new dashboards
Two New Dashboards for the Porsche 718 GT4: 718 GT4 Dash and 718 GT4 Dash B. The B version is the same dash without the LEDs.

Two New Dashboards for the Ford Mustang GT: Ford Mustang GT Dash 1 and Ford Mustang Gt Dash 2. Dash #1 is the Race dash and Dash #2 is the Launch dash.

Two New Dashboards for the Holden ZB: Holden ZB Dash 1 and Holden ZB Dash 2. Dash #1 is the Race dash and Dash #2 is the Launch dash.

FPS Target Rate
You can now control the frame rate target of the Z1 Dashboard. In the General settings tab there is an option called 'FPS Target'. This can be set between 1 and 60 fps. The default is 45 fps. The slower the frame rate the less CPU will be used. This can help if you find the Z1 Dashboard is using more CPU than you want it to. Also some dashboards don't need to be updated as often as others - for example standings dashboards, weather dashboards, etc. So you can adjust the FPS to suit the dashboards you have displayed. This can be done for each individual instance. This replaces the 'Sleep' parameter in previous versions.

Warning Temps now in Current Units
The Oil Flash and Water Flash temperatures (in the car 2 tab) that control when certain dials on the oval cars will begin to flash now use the currently selected temperature units. Previously they were always in Fahrenheit. Now if you have Celsius selected as your temperature units then these numbers will represent Celsius temperatures.

The Oil Temp Warning and Water Temp Warning temperatures (in the car 2 tab) that control when the oil or water temperature warnings are displayed now use the currently selected temperature units. Previously they were always in Celsius. Now if you have Fahrenheit selected as your temperature units then these numbers will represent Fahrenheit temperatures.

The Fuel Level Warning number (in the car 2 tab) that controls when the low fuel warning is displayed, and when the background flashes for low fuel, now uses the currently selected units. Previously it was always in liters. So now if you have gallons selected then the number is referring to gallons; if you have kilograms selected then the number would refer to kilograms, etc.

The Fuel Pressure Warning number (in the car 2 tab), that controls when the fuel pressure warning is displayed, now uses the currently selected units. Previously it was always in Bar. So now if you have metric pressure units selected the number will represent kPa instead of Bar.

New Shift Light Pattern
There is now a new shift light pattern. This is 'All CTR iRacing'. This pattern will illuminate the LEDs from outside towards to center using the shift light start and end numbers provided by iRacing. Obviously this only work with iRacing.
