We would like to thank you for choosing GT
Steering Wheel, the new wheel showing
real time data sampled by EVO4 logger.
With GT Steering Wheel you can view values coming from the ECU, from accelerometers, as well as from the GPS built into
the EVO4, while also receiving information
from the on-board camera SmartyCam.
GT Steering Wheel also shows data coming
from your Engine Control Unit via ECU
Bridge, the interface module connecting
the ECU to AiM visors and steering wheels.
You can also activate up to four external
units from the GT Steering Wheel.
Its graphic display allows a more precise
and enjoyable visualization of data.
Size and make have been specifically
designed for GT and Touring cars use.

event, for example “water temperature is
greater than 100 C°” (2)...
3 – ...or a combination of events, for
example: “water temperature is greater
than 100 C°” AND “Engine RPM is greater
than 6000” (1)
You can have G-Dash turn on the LED and
you can also select the LED color and the
LED behavior (solid or fast/slow blinking).
You can also define a text message (2)

Data Recall
GT Steering Wheel is powered by EVO4 and
turns on and off with the EVO4 with no additional user input.
By pressing the “MEM” pushbutton you
can recall the data from the latest test sessions stored in memory (max. six).
As soon as EVO4 senses an RPM value, GT
Steering Wheel menu will change.
The configuration functions will then show;
“LIGHT” to quickly and conveniently backlight the display and “TRCK” to easily
create and store the current GPS location so
the system will automatically calculate lap
times each time you cross that location.

The first page of the data recall screen
shows a session summary: the best four
laps, total distance run, total time run, Max
RPM and Max Speed.
The second page shows all of the session
laps with lap times and speeds (Min and
Max).
