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 2022.1 of the Z1 Dashboard is now available!

This new version adds many new features including:
* Drag and drop reordering of dashboards


* Compatibility with version 2022.1 of the Z1 Designer


* Support for Rexing Wheels


* Pre-scanning of laps for easier access from the Z1 Analyzer

* Live position changes for iRacing

* A brand new title bar design



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

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

Here is the full list of release notes:
* Compatible with all new 2022.1 Z1 Designer features.

* The title bar has been redesigned. It is now incorporated into the Z1 Dashboard window. It will be displayed whenever you move your mouse over the window. This will allow you to move, resize and close the Dashboard window. When you mouse your mouse outside the window the title bar will disappear.

* The Title Bar setting has been removed as the display of the title bar no longer effects the size of the window.

* There is a new option in the Display tab called 'Show Border In Car'.  If you want the title bar to be displayed when you move the mouse over the window when you are in the car then this option should be selected.

* In the Car tab of the settings dialog you can now reorder the dashboards for a car by clicking and draging them to where you want them to be.

* The button to display the menus in the garage screens has been moved. The previous three bars has been replaced by a menu bar at the right side of the display. Click this menu bar to show or hide the menus. This was necessary due to the redesign of the title bar.

* Enabling or disabling keyboard input no longer requires a restart of the Dashboard for the change to take effect.

* Changing the orientation of the display on the Vocore screen no longer requires a restart to take effect. You will see the change as soon as you exit the settings dialog.  Note you may still have to recalibrate the touch points of the vocore screen after changing its orientation.

* In iRacing positions during a race are now updated in real time. Previously they were only updated when you crossed the start/finish line.

* Added an option to pre-scan recorded telemetry laps. This works in conjuntion with telemetry recording. When you exit the car with telemetry recording active and this option active the Z1 Dashboard will scan the laps that were just recorded and add them to the Z1 Analyzer's list of laps. The next time you start the Z1 Analyzer these newly scanned laps will be available for you to open immediately without having to perform a lap scan. This option is on by default and available in the General settings tab. Note: This option works best when the Dashboard is on the same PC as both the sim and the Analyzer.  If the Analyzer is not on the same machine as the Dashboard or the Analyzer's documents folder is in a non-standard location you will need to specify the location of the folder in the Dashboard's general settings tab.  In addition when working with iRacing if iRacing is on a different PC then you will need to specify the location of the iRacing telemetry folder in the Dashboard's General settings tab.

* Rexing wheel LEDs are now supported.

* RaceRoom: updated to be compatible with latest API data.

* RaceRoom added: center front and rear third spring deflection and velocity; tire load; push to pass; traction control, engine power, engine braking; engine stalled.

Version 2022.2 of the Z1 Dashboard is now available! This new version introduces many new features as well as updating many existing ones.

Some of the highlights include:
* Analogue gauges created in the Z1 Designer are now supported.


* The Z1 Server now supports keyboard input.


* Track map creation has been improved and you can now rotate the map to any desired angle.


* The Z1 Server and its settings dialog has been updated to the latest look and feel.


* The Connect to Data Stream dialog has been updated to the latest look and feel.


* The Z1 Server can now supports the Z1 Analyzer per-scan functionality, so you can use it as a light-weight data logger.

* ACC GT3-2021 and Challengers Pack-2022 cars have been added.

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

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

Full list of release notes:
* Data logging will now track whether or not the lap was a valid lap. This will allow the Analyzer to display information on valid or invalid laps. (Note not all sims support this. Currently only iRacing, ACC & RaceRoom.)

* Added support for ACC GT3-2021 and Challengers Pack-2022 cars.

* As we continue our move towards improved dashboard designs, using the Z1 Designer, the legacy dashboards will start to be removed from the Z1 Dashboard. This will not be done until we have designed their replacement in the Z1 Designer. As of this version the Z1 Dashboard will check to see if there is a replacement available. If there is it will be downloaded automatically and will replace the legacy dashboard in the Z1 Dashboard. Any other settings you have specified (LEDs, etc) will not be changed. If you do not want this to happen automatically you can turn the feature off by unchecking the 'Auto Update Dashboards' option near the bottom of the General settings tab. Note if you turn this off then legacy dashboards that have been discontinued will be replaced with the Generic dashboard until you manually update them.

* The Settings dialog for the Z1 Server has been completely updated to the new look and feel.

* The Z1 Server now supports keyboard input as well as joystick buttons.

* The Z1 Server now supports the Z1 Analyzer pre-scan functionality, making it easier than ever to use the Z1 Server as a light weight data logger.

* The track maps for iRacing in the Z1 Dashboard are now created using the Mercator projection method. We will update the old ones over time.

* The pit lane creation process in the Z1 Dashboard iRacing track maps has been improved to display the pit lane entrances and exits more accurately.

* The Internet Data Stream Connection Dialog has been updated to the latest look and feel.

* The way in which track maps are created has been updated. This lets us better know the orientation of the map in the world. We recommend you delete all track maps created with previous versions. These are located in documents/z1dashboard/<sim>/tracks.

* You can now rotate a track map when not in the car. This is the preferred way of adjusting the orientation of track maps moving forward. To do so select the 'Track Map' option from the garage menus. Then use the circle to rotate the track map to the desired orientation and click the 'Save' icon.

* If you want to delete a track map and recreate it, click the 'Delete' icon in the Track Map garage menu screen.

* There is now a settings to turn Live Car Positions on or off when using iRacing. As iRacing only updates car positions when they cross the S/F line we need to do some calculations in order to get position data more frequently. This option is on by default. If you'd like to only update the car position data when the cars cross the S/F line then turn this option off. It is located at the bottom of the General settings tab. If you are using the Z1 Server you should make the selection in the Z1 Server settings.

* When registering you can now use the keyboard shortcut CTRL-V to paste your order number into the order number text field, assuming you have previously copied it from another location using the standard Windows copy (CTRL-C) command.

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.


An easy to use introduction dialog is now displayed for first time users.


Installing plugins is easier than every with the new introduction dialog.


The entire Z1 software suite explained.


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

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

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.

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


Shift Light Active Preview


New Button Options


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.

Version 2023.1 of the Z1 Dashboard is now available!

This version introduces our new on-board driving instructor. This instructor will talk to you as you drive round the track providing feedback on the track and on how you are taking turns and how you can improve. It is like having a real instructor sitting next to you in the car. You can even create your own voice packs to use with the instructor.

In addition to this version supports the Vocore 6.8" screens and all the new features in the Z1 Designer.

The new on-board Driving Instructor provides real-time spoken feedback on how to improve as you drive the track.


The new Driving Instructor allow for customization including three different levels of advice.


Compatibility with the latest Z1 Designer features.


Support for the Vocore 6.8" Screen


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

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

Here is the full list of release notes:
* The Driving Instructor is now available to ride along with you in the car. The instructor will speak to you as you go around the track like a real-world instructor would do, providing advice on the turns and how to improve your time through them. This feature requires a current track or pro license. Currently it is only compatible with iRacing and Assetto Corsa Competizione.

* There is a new settings tab, Driving Instructor, which allows you to set the various option for the instructor.

* You can choose the instructor who will ride along with you. Currently there is only one instructor available. We will be adding more in the future.

* Users can create their own instructor packs. An instructor pack consists of a folder placed in the documents/z1dashboard/voices folder. Look at the folder documents/z1dashboard/voices/greg as an example. This folder contains an xml file called 'voice'. When creating your own instructor you would edit this file to reflect your instructor. When doing so it is important to set the 'id' file to be blank. Then you would need to provide recordings in mp3 format for each of the files located in the folder. Again see the documents/z1dashboard/voices/greg folder for the required mp3 files.

* Customized instructor voice packs can be distributed to other if you like. All that is required for install an instructor pack is to place the folder containing the voice.xml file and the mp3 files into the documents/z1dashboard/voices folder.

* By default the instructor only provides feedback during a practice session. To have it provide feedback during all sessions, uncheck the 'Only Provide Feedback During Practice' option.

* There are 3 levels of advice that can be given by the instructor - beginner, intermediate and advanced. By default the instructor is set to beginner. You should set this level based on your experience as a driver as it effects the advice given by the instructor.

* The instructor provides advice at each level (beginner, intermediate, and advanced) for a specified number of laps before advancing its advice to the next level. By default this is 3 laps. You can change this in the settings dialog.

* You can select the speakers used for the instructor voice in the settings dialog, Driving Instructor tab.

* Added Water Pressure warning level to the Car tab in the Settings dialog. This is a car specific warning level. When the water pressure is under this level the water pressure warning will be triggered. Dashboards that implement the Water Pressure warning will then display the appropriate warning.

* Added support for the new Z1 Designer features.

* Support for Vocore 6.8" screens
