    There's Z1 sim dashboard;
    http://www.z1simwheel.com/dashboard/index.cfm
    But it doesn't have a iPad or android app, you need a extra monitor on your PC to show it. I have been testing it out (there's a 15 min free demo) by running something called iDisplay on my android tablet so it works as a 2nd PC monitor, but I'm getting a bit of delay doing that. I'm considering getting a cheap USB monitor for showing Z1 since I find it much more useful than the android apps out there.

    I use the z1 software because of its compatibility to many sim programs versus the DashMeterPro programs which I also use moreso for tire information. Like Kjell, I'm in the process of buying a 7" TFT touch monitor to run Z1.

    Cheers.

    Hi Matt,
    I've used several different apps with various titles and to date anyway, DashMeterPro is the Android app of choice for me. I did have to purchase it 3 times (iRacing, AC/pCars and rf1/rf2) but I still feel it's worth the price of admission.
    Before DMP I tried iHud and although they started off well, support is nearly non-existent now and their add on package apps never did work for me so I would not recommend them.

    I have also tried a few free one's and usually they either display too little info., have too much lag or simply aren't "pretty" enough for me. :)

    I thought I'd mention them here anyway, just in case others were curious...
    - SimRacingTools free app (AC, Race07/GTR/GTL)

    - SinSpeed a very basic free app (AC, iRacing, rF2 etc.)

    There are also SLi/app units that combine telemetry info. with Sli (rev lights/indicator) for even more versatility.
    SimInstrumentsDash does a good job of keeping their software up to date with new titles but these will run you close to $200.

    Hope that's helpful.
