Where is your service center? Or where can I send my product to be repaired?

Unfortunately, we do not have service centers to repair products.
A defective product should be replaced by your point of purchase during the warranty period.

My product is faulty. What do I do?

We offer a 'return to retailer' warranty on our products. In case of a defect, you can return the product to your retailer with failure description, proof of purchase and all accessories.

Is this steeringwheel compatible with PS4 or Xbox?

This steering wheel is suitable for Windows computers and PS3 only.

Which games are compatible with the wheel?

Unfortunately there is no list of compatible games available.
The racing wheel GXT 288 Taivo works with most games which are compatible with racing wheels.
However, it is almost imposible to check every racing/driving game in the market and therefore we did not develop such a list.

If the wheel is not working in your game,  check if the correct input mode (X-Input or DirectInput) for the game is set on the wheel. Information on setting the input mode can be found in the user manual.
