    Try UDP 5 and see what happens. I just installed the app (on iphone and ipad), selected UDP from the game options, then selected the right-hand option at the bottom of the app start screen (can't remember what it says here) and it started working. I'm running gear/rev counter on my phone which is stuck to my wheel and my ipad is on a stand on my tv cabinet with a different screen active. It's damn cool. Hope you sort it.

    @Elitekilla29 , I couldn't get it either, the number 5 worked! It's really great, I hooked up every device in my home. I also found phone holders that clip on like a desk lamp, on Amazon. Just ordered 3 phone holders!

    :cheers:

    You'll need UDP compatible apps on whichever device you have phone/tablet/PC get them downloaded and working.

    Then in gameplay menu turn UDP data on currently set to 3 or 5.

    Then enjoy

    What app are you using? PCARS dash? If you have a Windows laptop try crewchief it's amazing

    Sadly i don't have a laptop yet. Plan on getting one though. But i seen the crewchief feature in action and it would be really useful. And I'm using the Pcars HUD app btw.

    Are you running crew chief on your PC while playing the game on PS4? Is that possible?

    I use a Wifi network so don't know about a wired system. Head over to the official forum there has been discussions on this very matter.

    If you have wifi get a compatible app PCARS dash (iOS, android) crew chief (PC and test android version) turn on UDP in gameplay menu in game and your away.

    Yes, the mobile device needs to connect wirelessly to your router, doesn't matter if your PS4 is wired or not. If you can't get wifi on your mobile device you'll need a booster or powerline (recommend these any day).

    That's great news! I'm downloading it now. Hopefully it's pretty simple to get up and running...?

    by the way once you fire up the PC app it's the last connection in the connection list (the one at the bottom)

    Yeah thanks, I was scratching my head a bit and then scrolled down that list and thought that must be the one. Then when I saw UDP mentioned I knew I was in the right place. Haven't had a chance to play the game yet though.

    This addition has instantly improved ps4 gameplay for me. Using the pcarsdash app and found it to run instant and lag free(3 simultaneous devices) now I understand why PC people have been on to these for some time, if you have access to 2 or even 3 devices give it a shot, I run iPad 1 for the rev counter/gears iPad 2 for the vehicle data and an iPhone 5 for the map display, this frees up the visuals on the plasma increasing overall immersion , haven't had the chance to buy iPad mounts yet .... sheet music stands are a good temporary alternative and adjustable image.jpg

    Well I got Crew Chief up and running on my laptop to go alongside my PS4. Just make sure to select 'project CARS (network data)' from the GAME box top right and it'll work straight away. Another excellent addition to the game.

    Will the crew chief app be free when it releases on the google play store?

    There will be a free version but it will only work on Brands Hatch GP and Brands Indy. Then there will be 2 further versions a fully working "family" version no swearing and a fully working adults version, lots of swearing.

    I have no idea of price but expect it to be inline with current PCARS apps

    would love if the mini map could zoom in to provide you with a better idea of where cars are around you but hopefully crew-chief makes it to ios.

    anyway heres my setup, have 2 ipads i can use aswell but cant be bothered finding somewhere for them to sit[​IMG]
