    Hi guys,

    In the near future i'll be looking at getting some sort of ultra-wide monitor to have as my main monitor and i'll also be having a second smaller monitor the side.

    My question is, would it be possibly in any way to have some sort of app or program running on the second monitor that would display stuff like; telemetry, laps, position, track map etc? It would free up my main monitor as just a racing view and i wouldn't have any of the HUD displays being shown.

    If it is possible my plan would be to have the rev-counter on my iPad/Phone.

    Thanks!

    The Z1 dashboard can go on your second monitor. For your i-devices there's many options. DashPi for example.

    That looks interesting. Do you know, could I run it on two devices at once? Example, have my old iPhone mounted over the wheel showing the screen with speed/gear/fuel/times and then have my iPad off to the side showing lap count, position, tire info?

    I don't know about that, but you could ask the dev. You'd find his contact info in the link i posted and i know he's been posting news about DashPi here on RD too.

    EDIT: Here's the DashPi post from the dev: http://www.racedepartment.com/threads/ios-dashboard-app.119111/
