Android device and WiFi Network is required to run application. I know this significantly reduces size of target group but as we are in biggest PiBoSo community I hope there will be couple people wanting to help.

This release is simply supposed to check if project work on different types of machines without any issues. Also any feedback regarding installation process would be appreciated.

Description:
AndroidDash consist of game plugin and android device application. It uses WiFi network to send telemetry data to simple dash displayed over phone screen.

Installation:
1. Download and unpack files.
2. Move 'AndroidDash.dlo' and 'AndroidDash.ini' to 'plugins' folder located inside your Kart Racing Pro installation directory.
3. Install 'AndroidDash.apk'. Probably easiest way is to send program to your gmail account. Using your phone you can open message and use 'install' button.
- It may be required to enable option allowing you to install applications from outside android market
- Application will use port 5000 (for now hardcoded)
4. Start program and press 'get device IP' button (remember to have your phone connected to network).
5. Write assigned IP of your phone in 'AndroidDash.ini' file.
6. Start game and go to track (plugin will send packets only when vehicle is on track).
7. Press 'Start listener' button. If everything works layout buttons should become active.

This is how both dash layouts should look like:

Styled after formula renault 2.0 display layout shows basic vehicle information like: RPM, speed, gear, fuel left and temperatures. There is also LiveSplit that shows difference to your best lap on any point on track.

This layout shows previous lap and sector times. Also it displays difference to best sector and lap time.

Lap graph can store information about 40 entries allowing you to analyze pace of previous laps and sectors. Graph can also display used setup names so it's possible to check how particular setup affected your times.



Big thanks to dibu for help in initial testing and bug fixing.

some suggestions (if possible):

- change between layouts by tapping the screen (dash / times)
- adjust or center to fit bigger screens

Can you check if this version fixes elements position?

Changing layouts with screen tapping is also good idea but I will need a bit more time for that.

EDIT:
Small clarification from my side:
iPhone - (closed system that require mac to even start thinking about writing anything) In second post @Intrepid James said that he is making his version.
windows phone - actually is not that bad... but I don't have that phone type and no way to test it.
So for the sake of transparency I think this thread should be only about Android/bugs/ideas.

- Tapping screen changes layout.
- Fixed layouts initialization.

For now I'm not editing first post because I don't know how stable is this version.

Amazing.
A couple remarks:
1) shouldn't the program go back to "Waiting" when going back to pits?
2) it seems that if you change track, the laps and splits are not reset

I'm sorry but i change the folder .dlo and i can't remove this, because i open this with "bloc-notes" and  i don't know to change that.
Can you help me please !

Do you mean that program should exit layout and display main screen?

Thank you! That will be fixed.

Could you please rephrase it? Because I don't think I understand you.
You should not try to edit '.dlo' file. Configuration file '.ini'  can be opened with standard windows notepad.
