GIMX is free and open-source software, and the adapter is open-design.
I spend a lot of my free time improving it. I also spend a lot of money to buy a lot of hardware such as video game consoles, game controllers, and development hardware.

GIMX adapter

The unit is made of a USB to UART adapter based on the CP2104 chip, and a pro micro board based on the atmega32u4 chip. The two parts are connected with soldered wires and are attached with 3D printed parts. This prevents bad contacts and disconnections from happening.

Electrical insulation is ensured by a translucid heat-shrink tubing that allows seeing the on-board LEDs.

A 1-meter micro USB cable is provided to connect the micro USB port to the gaming console.

All parts including the USB cable are tested and selected through a quality assurance process. The assembled unit goes through a final endurance test that checks perfect operation.

The adapter gets loaded with the EMUG29PS4 firmware. Firmware can further be changed easily using gimx-loader. The firmwares that can be loaded are listed here: link.

Operating instructions

Refer to the GIMX wiki.

Important note

The GIMX shop only sells hardware. It is your duty to check that this product will fit your needs. In case of doubt, please consider posting questions before placing any order, in the discussion section of the GIMX forum.

Reasons to buy the GIMX adapter

Building a GIMX adapter yourself may be challenging. You may get wrong or defective hardware and loose a few hours figuring out what’s happening, and if this happens, you will loose more time waiting for the replacement part. You may also break the hardware as well due to inappropriate use.

The GIMX adapter is made with parts selected by the GIMX creator. This ensures 100% compatibility with the GIMX software.

Buying an adapter on this shop is a way to support the GIMX project. All the GIMX resources (software, firmware, wiki, …) are provided for free!

    Works great with my Logitech Driving Force GT in Dirt Rally on PS4.
    Very fast delivery!

  2. Jaabir (verified owner)

    Bought this for my Logitech DFGT. Works perfectly experiencing no latency in control. Would recommend.

  3. Conmob (verified owner)

    Very pleased with this adapter, works perfect with my ps2/ps3 Logitech Driving Force GT on my PS4. So far I have tested with Drive Club and Dirt Rally. Easy to set up after downloading the GIMX software to my pc and the Logitech program to get the necessary drivers for the steering wheel. All the instructions are on GIMX wiki. great quality and price, highly recommended, Thanks.

  4. Mladen Tapavički (verified owner)

    Works perfectly with G27! Many thanks.

  5. gonxalo__14 (verified owner)

    Bought to use my DFGT for Gran Turismo Sport and works like a charm!

  6. jbattams (verified owner)

    Incredible, I wish I had purchased an adapter when Mathieu first made them! I can now use my old DFP with all my favourite racing games including GT Sport! I was saving up for a G29 but Mathieu has saved me so much money- amazing work and worked right out of the box! Now just need to research loading the software onto my Pi so I dont have to have my laptop sitting next to my PS4. A thousand thank-you’s!! 🙂 🙂

  7. randomnerd (verified owner)

    great product, but its kinda incomplete. you should make premium package with an included raspberry pi glued to a usb hub 🙂

  8. MorMot (verified owner)

    Logitech G27 + Playstation 4 + Gran Turismo Sport = best ever race with FF, Clutch and H-shifted Gear!
    All works from the box!

    Parcel was delivered to deepest region in Russia for 3 weeks! Amazing!

    Thanks a lot!!!!

  9. mikko (verified owner)

    Logitech Momo Racing + Playstation 4 Pro + Gran Turismo Sport and Assetto Corsa works perfectly both. Force feedback and gear shifter works.

    Installed software and downloaded config and that’s it.

    Adapter was posted to Finland in one week.

  10. Nico (verified owner)

    This adaptor works fine with my Driving Force GT (emulation + feedback), but the micro-USB connector is very fragile. I already soldered it one time, and now is totally ripped off… 30€ for less than one year… I’m a bit bitter… I am not a brute and usually my stuffs last a long time…

    • Matlo

      Please contact customer support at labs@gimx.fr. This happened to very few customers. Also the connector is now reinforced.

        Customer was provided with a replacement.

    Mathieu has been extremely awesome and nice and tries to make all his customers happy and content with their purchase. If there is any difficulties he doesn’t hesitate to reach out and solve the situation! Overall the Adapter works and it does the job. He has changed the design to make the adapter more robust and it is! Would recommend his services.

    note: 1 star

    The adapter was working perfectly fine for my mouse and keyboard, but as Nico stated above. The micro usb connector is very fragile and just came off for the 3 days I was able to use the adapter, it’s been less than 1 month since I’ve got it and it already broke. I’m a bit disappointed.

      Customer was provided with a replacement.

  12. Konstantin (verified owner)

    Thanks. The adapter received very quickly, from France to Latvia reached in 4 days. The adapter is well packaged.

  13. Ole Lamers (verified owner)

    Very fast shipping and it works perfectly with my Logitech dfgt.

  14. Zachary Davis (verified owner)

    Satisfied with delivery speed, dissatisfied with inconsistency of results. Didn’t work after following all the steps first, then reinstalling and trying again. Put my computer to sleep, woke up to give it another shot, worked like a charm. Played for a few hours, switched games, it stopped working for a little while, then started again, then stopped again. Open to solutions / replacement. Great effort, shaky results.

    • Matlo

      This looks like a problem on the software/computer side. Please open a topic in the support section of the forum, and make sure to provide the details requested in forum rules.

    Used this adapter to play keyboard and mouse on Xbox and it works super good!!! Love it and I would recommend it to anyone looking for an adapter!

  16. Matus Kral (verified owner)

    received the adapter within week.
    – the “cloth jacketed” usb cable is very good call!
    – gladly made this small contribution to the project.

    (it just makes no sense to waste time by building it yourself)

  17. Ole Lamers (verified owner)

    It works great with my dfgt on my ps4 but, after playing for like 15 minutes it stops working and I cant controle my game anymore not with my dfgt and also not with my dualshock 4 controller. To fix this I have to close down the command prompt window and start it again. Its very annoying for it to stop working in te middle of my race. Is there a solution for this or is this just a software or hardware problem?

    • Matlo

      Check all your cables, especially the Dualshock 4 one. Make sure not to disconnect any cable after starting GIMX. For further help, please open a topic in the support section of the forum, and make sure to provide the details requested in forum rules.

    Was looking forward to order and finally play GT Sport with my G27. Had a problem paying the order. Wrote an email to the seller, he was very helpful, we resolved the issue and my order is finally on the way. I think a very good review is deserved just for the support, as well as the product itself. I’m sure everything will work fine, but if there’s a problem I know the seller will gladly help. I’m happy to make the contribution to the project!

  1. Looks great! I’ve just bought the bits to make the adapter and if it works allowing me to use my G27 on my PS4 then you can expect a donation towards your great work.

    1. If the donation level is high enough, I’ll buy a G920 and study the possibility to add support for the Xbox One. But there’s no guarantee it will work (it depends on the ability to use an Xbox One gamepad to authenticate as a wheel). Another option is that a G920 owner provides me enough information about the wheel.

  2. How can I use GIMX 5.4 with my CronusMax Plus? Please help.. Video or guide would be appreciated.. Its showing as ‘Failed’..
    I’ve got a G29, trying to play NFS 2015 on PS4..
    If you can help me with this I promise you a donation..
    thanks in advance.

  3. Hi. I have a diy ffb wheel build from 0 with arduino. Its working great on pc.
    Their is a way to connect it to Xbox one with gimx? Thanks . I appreciate if you can help me.

    1. @Razvan

      Quick answer: there is no wheel emulation for Xbox yet. Further questions, please post in a more appropriate place, like the GIMX discussion section of the forum.
