Fanatec compatibility to Logitech and Thrustmaster hardware

We are often asked if you can use Thrustmaster or Logitech wheels, pedals, shifters or other accessories in combination with Fanatec hardware. In general the devices of different vendors are not compatible to each other. Therefore, you cannot directly connect products from different companies to each other or at least this is not supported.

In former times there have been adapters which might have worked to make such combinations possible but those solutions have not been reliable due to different techniques used in the hardware and different signal tolerances even if similar specs have been used. Fanatec cannot make any statements about third party adapters or similar solutions. We are putting a lot of effort into the goal of having the highest possible intercompatibility in between all our devices, which is not that easy to achieve. For any questions about compatibility we can only direct you to the information given on our product pages or within our FAQs.

 

The statement above is valid for every platform (especially on consoles!) EXCEPT PC...since you can connect multiple, individual USB devices there IF the game/simulation supports that.
This gives you multiple options to combine hardware of different vendors the way you want. Most simulation games on Windows PCs will allow you to use combinations like: Logitech wheel, Thrustmaster shifter and Fanatec pedals for example. Since Fanatec provides USB solutions for more or less every kind of hardware (shifter/handbrake by USB adapter, USB pedals, USB wheels, etc.) the possibilities to build your perfect setup are endless. 

Even if it is very common, please be so kind to make some research on the web or ask the simulation developer if multiple USB devices are supported.

Can I use other (USB, RJ12, etc.) cables than the original ones? Kann ich anderen Kabel als die mitgelieferten (RJ12, USB, etc.) Kabel verwenden?

n theory you can use any RJ12-RJ12 (6p6c straight) and USB (type A -- type B; USB 1/2.0; USB Type C) cable which has the right connectors on both ends. If you use high-quality cables of similar length to the originals, there should be no problem. Please keep in mind that Fanatec cannot guarantee perfect functionality if third-party products are involved even if the combination should work. 

Important notes regarding (replacement) cables: 

  •    Cables that are significantly longer than the original cables can cause connection issues 

  •    Extension cables are often the source of connection issues. Longer high-quality cables are the better option 

  •    If your product came with a high-quality ferrite core cable, a replacement cable should be of similar quality 

  •    For USB Type C cables, please make sure that you are using USB Type C Data and not a Charging cable 

  

Q: Can I purchase replacement "RJ12--RJ12" / "USB A -- USB B / USB Type C (for the CSL DD)" cables from Fanatec? 

A: We should be able to offer replacement cables for all recent products. If they are not offered in the webshop, please ask our support team. But alternatively, it is also possible to use similar standard USB/RJ12 high quality cables, which are inexpensive and can be found at most electrical retailers. 

Grundsätzlich sollten alle standard RJ12--RJ12 (6p6c - straight) und USB (Type A auf Type B; USB 1/2.0) Kabel passen und einwandfrei funktionieren, welche die richtigen Stecker bieten. Sofern hochqualitative Kabel mit ähnlicher Länge verwendet werden, sollte dies kein Problem darstellen. Bitte beachten Sie, dass Fanatec keine uneingeschränkte Garantie auf Funktionalität geben kann, sofern Teile/Produkte von Drittherstellern verwendet werden bzw. involviert sind.

 

Wichtige Anmerkungen zu Ersatzkabeln:

  • Kabel welche (deutlich) länger als die Originalkabel sind, können zu Verbindungsproblemen führen
  • Verlängerungskabel (und Adapterstecker) sind oft die Ursache von mangelhafter Übertragungsqualität der Signale. Längere Kabel wären hier die bessere Option.
  • Wenn ihr Produkt mit einem hochwertigen Kabel inkl. Ferrit-Kern geliefert wurde, sollten sie als Ersatz ein ähnlich hochwertiges Kabel verwenden.


Frage: Kann ich ein (RJ12--RJ12 oder USB A -- USB B) Ersatzkabel von Fanatec kaufen?
Antwort: Wir sollten in der Lage sein für aktuelle Produkte Ersatzkabel zu Verfügung zu stellen. Falls diese im Webshop nicht gelistet sind, fragen sie bitte unser Supportteam danach. Es ist allerdings auch möglich ähnliche Standardkabel in hoher Qualität von anderen Händlern zu erschwinglichen Preisen zu kaufen und zu verwenden.

Display and LED support on Xbox One (XBO) Display/LED Unterstützung auf der Xbox One (XBO)

The RevLEDs and displays on some Fanatec steering wheels are designed to display telemetry from a game (e.g. engine RPM, vehicle speed, selected gear, etc). Currently, this is not supported on Xbox One and Xbox Series X|S, but Microsoft is looking into making these features possible in the future.

Aktuell gibt es bei XBox One Spielen keine Unterstützung für LEDs und Display. Wir hoffen, dass Microsft diese Funktionen schnellstmöglich nutzen wird.

Motor firmware shown as version ''0''

Please try the following software solution in order to resolve the issue:  

 

  1. Reset your devices by following this guide: https://forum.fanatec.com/discussion/1758/symptom-fanatec-driver-does-not-install-uninstall-correctly 
  2. Install the driver package again and update their firmware: https://fanatec.com/eu-en/driver 
  3. Perform the firmware update for the wheel base and the motor driver through the Firmware Update manager. In case you received the message “Firmware is up to date” and you are not able to proceed, please select “Manual update” located in the top right corner of the firmware manager, then proceed with the update of the firmware. 
 

  

In case the procedure above does not help, please reach out to technical support for further assistance. 

My firmware is up to date and I cannot reflash it

With the new firmware manager, the ‘’Update’’ button will remain grey and not available in case you are having the latest firmware installed on your devices. This of course doesn’t mean that you are still not able to reflash/reinstall the firmware again. To make the option become available again, press the Manual Firmware Update button in the top right corner of the Firmware Manager window:  

 

 

 

This will unlock the firmware update option for each device. You can then proceed and perform the firmware update/reflash on the device you wish:  

 

My steering wheel sensitivity is not matching with the one in game

Every car in every game can have a different steering angle. In order to match your steering angle with the one in the car, you will need to have the Sensitivity setting (in the tuning menu) set to Auto. Then you will need to complete the controller calibration in the game.

 

In case you are still getting a different steering angle on your wheel and in the car in-game, then you will need to check the following:

 

As every game is different, some games require setting the steering angle in the settings. For example, in Assetto Corsa and Assetto Corsa Competizione, you will need to set the degrees in game and then apply the same setting in the tuning menu. Then all cars will be matching.

 

For Dirt Rally and Dirt Rally 2.0 for example, you will need to perform the calibration in-game, then set the saturation to 63 and set the sensitivity in the tuning menu to 900 degrees in order to get the exact steering lock of the car in-game.

 

In case the steering wheel is not matching still, perform the following:

 

1) Turn your steering wheel to 90 degrees.

 

2) Open the tuning menu and go to the ‘’Sensitivity’’ setting

 

3) Start reducing the sensitivity to a point, where you see the steering wheel on the screen matching the position of your own steering wheel. Turn left and right and all the way until you feel the soft lock and check if the position of the steering wheel on the screen is matching your one.

 

Please know, that some games do not have realistic steering wheel turning animation, therefore it will not be possible to match the steering wheel on the screen with yours.

One or two connector pins in the QuickRelease are shorter. Is this normal? Ein oder zwei Pins in dem QuickRelease meines Lenkrades sind kürzer. Ist das normal? One or two connector pins in the QuickRelease are shorter. Is this normal?

You might notice that one pin is shorter on the Quick Release Connector.

This is normal and does not affect the connectivity of the steering wheel.

The purpose of the shorter pin is to connect last or after all other pins are already connected. This is called a lagging electrical circuit. It means the steering wheel will be supplied with electricity before the circuit is closed.

Shorter-pin

 

Bei den Lenkrädern sind ein oder zwei Pins im Quick-Release-Mechanismus kürzer als die anderen.
Das is völlig normal und kein Grund zur Sorge.
Der Grund dafür ist ein nacheilender Stromschluss. Der Kontakt soll erst hergestellt werden, wenn alle anderen Kontakte verbunden sind und das Lenkrad schon mit Strom versorgt werden kann. Die Verbindung zwischen Lenkrad und Wheelbase wird dadurch nicht negativ beeinflusst.
 

私のピンの1つが他のピンよりも短い

クイックリリースコネクタに短いピンがあることに気付くかもしれません。

これは正常です、ステアリングホイールの接続には影響しません。短いピンの目的は、最後に接続するか、他のすべてのピンがすでに接続された後に接続することです。これは遅れ電気回路と呼ばれます。回路が閉じる前にハンドルに電気が供給されることです。

In general, (simulation) racing games need to support PS4 licensed force feedback wheels, to be compatible with the Podium Racing Wheel F1®. It is possible that older PS4 games which are not mentioned on the list do not properly work in combination with this hardware, since the hardware did not exist when the game was developed and the game is not updated anymore. Game developers will receive the Fanatec PS4 SDK in order to support all Fanatec PS4 wheels as well as all special functions (Rev-Leds, Display, additional vibration motors, Multi-Position-Switches, etc.). 

Note: This list is regularly updated. For more information about any title (listed here or otherwise), please use this Contact Form (and select "Product consultation").

Grundsätzlich müssen Rennspiele und Simulationen PS4 lizenzierte Force Feedback Lenkräder unterstützen, um mit dem Podium Racing Wheel F1® kompatibel zu sein. Es ist möglich, dass ältere PS4 Spiele, die nicht auf dieser Liste stehen, nicht korrekt in Kombination mit diesem Lenkrad funktionieren, da dieses Produkt möglicherweise noch nicht existierte, als das Spiel entwickelt wurde. Spieleentwickler erhalten das Fanatec PS4 SDK, um sowohl alle Fanatec PS4 Lenkräder als auch alle erweiterten Funktionen (Drehzahl-LEDs, Display, zusätzliche Vibrationsmotoren, Mehrwegeschalter, usw.) unterstützen zu können.

Hinweis: Diese Liste wird regelmäßig aktualisiert. Für weitere Informationen über Spiele (die hier gelistet sind, oder auch nicht), benutzen Sie bitte dieses Kontaktformular und wählen Sie "Ich brauche Produktberatung".

The steering wheel does not feel smooth when no force effects are active.

The feeling in question is caused by the magnets that are inside the base. Such unpleasant effects can be eliminated by performing the Motor Sensor Calibration.

 

In order to initiate the process, open the Fanatec Wheel property page and go to the ‘’Settings’’ tab. Take the steering wheel off the base and press the ‘’Motor sensor calibration’’ button. The base will perform the calibration procedure and it will take only a few seconds.
