    So I'm doing laps at the Nurburgring 24hr layout in cockpit view with no HUD and wishing that I could run league or Sport mode races this way. Unfortunately because I can't see my tire wear indicators or fuel consumption, it won't exactly work. Then I got to thinking, what if there was a way to display these items along with lap count, lap timers, etc on another screen? Be it a computer monitor, TV screen or even a tablet?

    Surely I am not alone in this?

    I'm surprised some of these wheels don't come with some type of LCD screen or data logger.

    An UDP output can solve this as done in PC2 etc. Hopefully it's included in future titles

    Protocol used by other racing Sims like Assetto Corsa and Project Cars that 'streams' game data over a network to compatible Apps like SimDashboard etc.

    Write up from PC site

    Link to app on Play store

    Ok, this was my thought at first. Or some type of Bluetooth enabled app on a tablet.
