    Question Delay in CrewChief and pCars Dash

    Hi, been racing pCARS coming up two years now. I use CrewChief on a Sony Android phone and pCARS Dash on an iPad. All software is up to date and, until about a week ago, everything worked fine. UDP is set to 4.
    I was working on a Time Trial and realised that CrewChief was reporting stuff about 40 seconds after I'd expect it, so I turned it off! Later, in an online session last weekend, I noticed that not only was CrewChief still misbehaving, but the pCARS Dash data and session timers were 39-40seconds behind the game.
    Has anybody had a similar experience or can suggest a fix pls?

    Yes,
    For a while my Samsung S6 had a 20 to 30 second Lag using pCars Dash.

    I finally found out the cause..
    Power Manager. Power saving mode was turned ON

    Once I turned that off, the Lag went away..
    don't know if your experience is the same..

    Not aware that I've changed power management Settings on either device and it seems strange that two separate apps on two different platforms are showing the same behaviour. But well worth investigating, thanks
