Does anyone know how to make my lego powered up car steer using my phone/tablet? I have found the 2 coding blocks in there, one for vertical tilt and one for horizontal tilt, but neither of them does anything. Do I need any extra sensor for it to work? My car uses the powered up (boost) hub, external powered up motor and sensor of color and distance.

And as for bonus question, how do I make the car steer using my playstation gamepad or any other gamepad?

The app is called brickcontroller 2, and you need to set the motor function to "center steer" then click the red button with the gear and click "auto calibrate" or something like that. Hope you can get this working.

Yes, but they're not doing anything. At least not when I replace the joystick code block with one of these.

Thanks. So far it hasn't detected any of my devices, will try later with different ones.

Sure, here it is. None of these 2 options do anything.

the right one is correct, but indeed: does not work with "AB". With "A" it does. A second block with "B"only  added: both motors running. A bug?!

Thanks for pointing me in the right direction. Also, you may be bugged, but I'm not and AB is working for me now. And do you want to know why it didn't work for me before? Because I was in the code menu, not the controller menu :D Facepalm moment right there.

Sure, as in the right example there is no controller any more.

Concerning "AB": seems that it is only working with two motors with the same ID.

Interesting. I only used the AB as an example, I'm actually using C for steering, but it's definitely good to know. Luckily the AB motors are included in the move hub itself so I won't have problems with them I believe.

Yes, and so they are of the same type.

Is everything working now as desired?

Yes, thank you. Like I said yesterday, the problem was that I didn't switch to controller mode for testing. I didn't even think about it since I was literally using no buttons.
