In the RS Dash app, the "Waiting for RS Transmitter Signal..." message should now have changed to either "Waiting for game to start.." (if iRacing is not yet running) or the dashboard display should be shown if iRacing is running.

 

Troubleshooting

  • You must be running the game on the same Windows PC that you are running the RS Transmitter application on. 

  • IMPORTANT: A number of Android devices have experienced issues with the telemetry data stopping during use, or starting and stopping intermittently. If you are experiencing this problem, please turn OFF the "Use Broadcast Mode" flag in the RS Transmitter. You must then make sure that the IP address you have entered in the IP Address field in the RS Transmitter matches the IP address shown when you first start the RS Dash app. 
     

  • Verify that your device is connected to the same Wifi network as your PC and that you have specified the correct IP Address for your device in the IP Address field in the RS Transmitter application.
