    I use the hood view. when I need to I change to in car to check water/oil temps. then I need to cycle though back to hood view. I want a water/oil temp gauge next to the rpm/speedo in hood view

    Once again, yes EA and others have had Apps for data reporting. Difference is that those Apps are not retrieving live-stream data....the latency and hops would be all over the place. Could be utilized (at a cost) for things not to-the-second critical.

    Something that if you stop to think isn't critical to the point of not allowing some milliseconds latency. After all it would be mostly for display/reference and would hardly pass the 500ms delay.

    "I always play "looking over the nose" view on my PC SIM rig and use a secondary small display for the gauges. It adds more realism to the experience."
    i have to query how looking over the nose adds more realism to the experience -do you see race drivers sitting on the roof of their cars??
    go in-car and you can see the important gauges

    would be cool if they implemented the ps vita into a second screen for either dash readings or maybe a touch screen button box of some sort.

For me and a lot of other people on here, seeing your wheel and another wheel on the screen feels weird and unrealistic. So to me, a hood view is more "realistic" than a cockpit view, as weird as that sounds.

    And I would love for PCARS to have customizable display. They do a limited version- you can hide/view and move things around. What if you could grab the brake and tire telemetry data, add in the speedometer and the race data which appears on the bottom left? That would be (almost) all I need in one display...
    But you can turn off the wheel and driver's hands.

    +1 for this request as well.
    Consoles need to be on-par with PC. On PC, telemetry often relies on third-party apps / modules / plugins. However, some editors do provide telemetry in an embedded and smart way: they send over network UDP data packets that can be read by telemetry apps (UDP is faster, not needing acknowledge). That's the case for Ubisoft/Ivory Tower "The Crew" on PC for example. All that is needed on the GUI is a checkbox to enable telemetry output, and eventually an @IP field (IP could be also gateway @IP -1 or PS4 @IP +1 , ....)
    But this requires SMS to make it, not the community as this has to go through Sony's approval I guess.
    We can start dreaming.....

    I'm going to have a go myself but don't hold your breath, I need to read loads and watch YouTube videos, I just want to extract strategy data, my current understanding is it involves witch-craft
