Aplusb Software Shifts into High GF with Simu-Shift-Knob

March 17, 2017

After long, intensive development, Aplusb Software is proud to announce the release of its newest product in its driver education line; the new Simu-Shift-Knob.  The Simu-Shift-Knob replaces the shifter knobs on Logitech and Thrustmaster shifters, adapting them for computer driving simulations, like Aplusb’s SimuRide Professional; to enable the operation of virtual commercial vehicles using 10, 13 and 18 gears, so drivers can practice H pattern, 6 gear shifting using a Logitech shifter, and 8 gear shifting using the TH8A Thrustmaster shifter; splitting gears between low and high range, as well as toggling between the low and high setting for each gear. 

The Gear Shifter Knob is compatible with both Logitech and Thrustmaster shifters, adapting those controls to operate the additional gear shifting options; and will work on other driver simulators, in addition to SimuRide Professional.

In addition to the Gear Shifter Knob launch, Aplusb Software has added a new vehicle to SimuRide Professional; the Tractor Trailer, with automatic transmission, for simulated driving practice for drivers who don’t need to prepare to drive a manual transmission.  We have also introduced a new combination feature with a Double Trailer, to practice Coupling and Uncoupling maneuvers with a trailer and converter dolly.  This is in addition to SimuRide PE’s existing line of personal and commercial vehicle options; including commercial trucks with variably manual and automatic transmission options.

The Simu-Shift-Knob is available on our online store for $110, plus shipping and handling. Learn more about the Simu-Shift-Knob, and find our other driver education products, at
