I just bought a Thrustmaster Open Wheel add on for my T300, it can't seen to recognize the button layout. I looked into updating the drivers but I'm not a PC/ Windows user. Just a Mac mini & PS4 pro is all I have. Any ideas on how to get this wheel to work with GT Sport?

Thanks in advance.

Anyone?
Please help.
I think you'll have to update your wheelbase somehow. I've heard of people using something like virtual PC for Mac but being a PC user I'm not familiar with this. A quick google search turned up quite a few methods but I have no clue as to which is best.

Another method would be to borrow a friends windows laptop or do as my friend does. He brings his wheelbase (pedals aren't required but the table clamp is) to my house and I update it for him. Perhaps someone could do this for you?

I'm completely lost on how update it, I contacted Thrustmaster via email but may not get a response for 15 days due to Covid. If I can't figure it out I might as well return it to Amazon.

There's a Technical Support section that covers it on the TM website https://support.thrustmaster.com/en/product/t300rs-en/

Update procedure instructions: http://ts.thrustmaster.com/download/pub/webupdate/t500rs/T300RS_Firmware_Update_Procedure_V31.pdf

The drivers + firmware package that's needed to update the wheelbase is in the Drivers tab:

But you still need a PC to do it.

I got it done, I've had this wheel since 2016 so it had version 24, finally updated to version 31 & it really has made a world of difference. Thanks again FPV MIC.
