SimDash is the software we designed for the Rev Burner, GI Pro, GI Max, SPI-D, Pro Shift, SimScreen, DLC-247 and all the other boards. The SimDash installer will download any additional library if required (Microsoft .NET Framework and C++ Runtime). When SimDash starts, it will check if a newer version is available. If you have Windows Firewall enabled you could get a warning message for this.

If you want to load the original firmware (for rev counters) use this file:
To upgrade the Rev Burner firmware use the Bootloader application available below and follow these simple steps.

Pro-Gauge firmware V.1 (without relay support)
Pro-Gauge firmware V.2 (with relay support)
SimDash 1.3.2 added new functionalities to the SPI-D display and a firmware upgrade is required. As usual, if SimDash gives you green light when the SPI-D is connected, it means the display is already running the latest firmware available.
SPI-D firmware V.2 (SimDash 1.3.1 or ealier)
SPI-D firmware V.3 (SimDash 1.3.2 or later)
There is an alternative firmware for the Pro Shift controller, which makes use of the eight buttons (four buttons with older versions of the Pro-Shift) that can be connected to the board. If you download and install the new firmware the Pro Shift, as well as the usual functions, will also be detected as a USB Game Controller with eight buttons, which can be configured in the simulator. The new firmware requires SimDash 1.3.5 or later. The original firmware will work with any version of SimDash.
Use the Bootloader to do the upgrade and follow these steps.
The Bootloader application is used to update the Rev Burner, SPI-D, Pro Shift, SimScreen and all the other boards' firmware. Follow these steps to complete the operation.
