Fanatec still disappointing
I was hoping by now that Fanatec would have got it together, but here we are almost 12 months down the track with Podium Wheel Bases that are still operating on unstable Beta software. Fanalab is a good example - it's still rubbish with many of the features not working. Fanatec still do not list correct drivers and firmware on their website and Beta drivers will not be listed on the site and only in the forum, as I believe they will be liable for damages.
Their support is very limited and slow to react. Making it impossible to talk to them. I live in Australia and the service centre is based in Queensland, around 900km away from Sydney.
Let's hope Thrustmaster produce a decent direct drive soon, as their product have always been reliable in my opinion. I had the TS PC Racer and it was brilliant! Wish I kept it as it was just as good as the Podium and wasn't a Direct Drive!
I've been waiting 2 weeks now for a remedy for my bricked DD1. So no racing for me! Looking to return all my Fanatec products after an investigation and complaint to The Department of Fair Trading. ( Fanatec are basically selling hardware that is based on software (Drivers and Firmware) that is unstable and unreliable).
COME ON FANATEC, PICK UP YOR GAME!
