To get the iRacing telemetry data from your pc to your phone or tablet requires the use of the Fast Dash iRacing Server application. This is a Windows application and can be downloaded from the Download section below.
Fast Dash for iRacing supports UDP, TCP and USB (Android Only) connections. When connecting using UDP there is nothing to setup, just start Fast Dash iRacing Server, iRacing and your phone or tablet will automatically connect.
Fast Dash for iRacing supports connections via UDP, TCP and USB (Android Only).
UDP is the easiest and preferred method to connect the Fast Dash for iRacing application to the Fast Dash iRacing Server.
The majority of routers and devices provide UDP support, but if you find you can't get a connection using UDP, you will need to connect using TCP.
When connecting using UDP, if you are running iRacing on multiple computers located on the same network, you will encounter issues with the device receiving telemetry data from multiple computers. Enter the name of the computer you want to accept telemetry data from in the UDP Filter field to filter out the data from the other computers.
To connect using TCP you will need to enter the LAN IP Address of the computer running iRacing into the TCP IP Address field.
Also for TCP, Fast Dash iRacing Server will need to given access to communicate through the Windows Firewall.
In Allow programs to communicate through Windows Firewall, select fastdashiracingserver.exe and also select Home/Work (Private) check box.
See this guide for help.
Use the USB mode if you are unable to receive telemetry data via wifi. See the Setting up USB Mode section below for more details.

Android does not provide a method for apps to communicate via USB with a host pc natively. However, Google supplies a command tool called Android Debug Bridge (ADB) to enable developers to debug the apps they are working on. We are able to use ADB to send the telemetry data to our device. To do so complete the following 3 steps:
1) Enable USB debugging on your device
The USB debugging option is usually located under Settings --> Developer options. After enabling USB debugging, you may be prompted to allow USB debugging when you next connect your device to your pc. If so, select OK. On some newer Android devices, the Developer options screen might be hidden by default. If so, search for instructions on how to enable it for your device.
2) Install Android ADB USB driver on PC
Google has a page with instructions detailing how to download and install the Android ADB USB driver: http://developer.android.com/tools/extras/oem-usb.html.
You can also download a universal ADB USB driver that will work with most devices from here: http://forum.xda-developers.com/google-nexus-5/development/adb-fb-apx-driver-universal-naked-t2513339
3) Download the ADB files from Google
Download the Platform Tools file from the following location: http://dl.google.com/android/repository/platform-tools_r19-windows.zip
Once downloaded, extract the zip file and copy the following 3 files: adb.exe, AdbWinApi.dll and AdbWinUsbApi.dll from the platform-tools directory into the directory where FastDashIracingServer.exe is located on your pc.
You should now be able to connect to your device by using the USB option in Fast Dash iRacing Server. If you get a "device not found" error, check your device is connected to the pc and the ADB driver has been installed correctly on your pc using the device manager.
When testing a car on track, the iRacing API does not output lap times for the first full lap of the session.
The current lap delta time is based the sessions best "clean" lap time.
