Fanatec Driver 440 for CSL, CSW and Podium WB (all wheels)
How to report issues:
If you report a driver or firmware issue, please make cross checks:
- Update driver and FW separately to isolate an issue and find out if caused by driver OR firmware.
- Which driver OR firmware shows the issue
- Which driver OR firmware does not show the issue
- Check if you can reproduce the issue again if you go back to the version which seems to have caused the issue
- Check if the issue is related to specific settings of for example the tuning menu. Is it happening more or less with a specific setting raised or lowered?
- Post the answers gathered from the questions above + a short description of the issue including the following info:
- Wheel Base Model (product ID): ...
- Steering Wheel Model (product ID): ....
- Driver Version: ....
- Base FW Version: ....
- Motor FW Version: ....
- Wheel FW Version: ....
- FanaLab Version: ....
- Tuning Menu settings
- Driver/FanaLab installed on C: drive or else?
- With driver related issues collect log files and zip them from C:\Users\Public\Fanatec Logs

BMW M4 GT3

- Improved color balance of LED backlights
- Improved switching between normal backlight and revLED mode
- Podium wheel base jolts can happen on ITM or analysis screens of the wheel base display. A workaround is to use the default screen with “Fanatec” logo while driving. We are working on a fix which needs an extensive re-write of the P DD firmware. We did make significant progress in March and are on a good way, we still need to finish parts of the re-write, do a lot of testing and some fine tuning. We also need to restructure the firmware update process a bit for a smooth transition from old to new base and motor firmware before we will be able to share them, as they communicate differently with each other.
- Natural Friction (NFR) can create a weird FFB sensation and not smooth feeling after some time, we suggest to set it to OFF in case you get this issue. You can raise the Natural Damper (NDP) slightly to compensate for less NFR. For P DD this will be addressed with the re-write mentioned above, after that the improvements will be rolled out to the CSL DD as well.
- When entering a game menu while driving in some games it can happen that the FFB effect doesn't get cancelled which results in the wheel turning to one side. For P DD this will be addressed with the re-write mentioned above, after that the improvements will be rolled out to the CSL DD as well.
Compatible FanaLab Version:
It's mandatory to use FanaLab 1.61.3 or newer with this driver to prevent tuning menu settings being saved/loaded with slightly different settings.
There is also now a version for the BMW M4 GT3, the rest is the same as above
