Pimax Setup
Installation and user guide
1) Connect your headset to your computer
    1. Connect the data cable USB interface, DP interface and power adapter to the corresponding slot
    2. Plug the power adapter into a power outlet
    3. Connect the data cable USB connector to the USB 2.0/3.0/3.1 port on your computer.
    4. Connect the data cable DP interface to the DP port on the discrete graphics card. Do not connect to the DP port on the motherboard.
    5. The connection between the equipment cable and the PC desktop is as shown in the figure below

                  Note:New shipped headsets are designed without power adapter.

               6.After the device is properly connected, the screenshot of the PC is as follows.
                7. If you do not have base station in hands, uncheck the Lighthouse Tracking in the
                PiTool settings and check 9-Axis.
                note: If you mainly into Sims then no Lighthouses are not required as you cab use 3dof. However many
                simmers will recommend having at least 1 Lighthouse; the reason is the ability to lean. Without a lighthouse you
                cannot lean forward, backwards or Left & Right. So for example if you do a shoulder check in a car sim your view
                maybe obscured by the headrest.
