Yes, no(from what I am reading)
Let me know if you find a version that does coding as well as boost gauge capability

yes i have, it works great if you can live with the half second delay. i think the total cost of getting the pro version and the bluetooth adapter is well worth the money. it does so much more than just a boost gauge.

I actually looked into developing an app that does coding but apple has it so locked down, only way would be to make it & release it into the jailbroken market.

I use torque FT in my car... on a Samsung 10" tablet. I use my old phone for a HUD that gives me speed and RPM. Works flawlessly for me. Tab is permanently mounted.
