Do you need a dashboard display unit (DDU) for sim racing? We’re here to find out and let you know after six months of testing.
Yes, we’ve been using GRID Engineering’s (by Sim-Lab) latest displays for an extended period, and here’s our guide to both DDUs in general and a review of the company’s two models.
The DDU5 is a 5-inch display that shows you important information at a glance, such as gear selected, lap time delta, driver assist settings and temperatures. It also includes an array of 20 LEDs.
Meanwhile, the Porsche GT3 Cup takes that same ethos but ramps it up with a 10.3-inch 1920×720 resolution screen that’s a real-world replica of that found in the motorsport-derived Cup car.
Best for those with a full sim racing cockpit or rig set-up, we were impressed by both designs. View our detailed thoughts, here. Also, let us know in the comments below if you use a DDU, or would like to soon!
The GRID Engineering DDU5 Dashboard Display Unit retails for £291. The GRID Engineering Porsche 911 GT3 Cup Dashboard Display Unit retails for £529.
Both units were sent to Traxion for review purposes, but the opinions are our own.
