4.2-inch LCD and Boost Gauge

All the information/literature I have seen online states the 4.2-inch LCD is supposed to have a gauge mode that displays "actual temperature of the oil and transmission (gas engine); turbo boost gauge for diesels". Well my 6.7 PSD only toggles through the follow 3 displays (compass, oil & trans temp, blank screen). I don't see any digital boost gauge. Does anyone's 4.2-inch display show boost?

Also, what max boost are you guys seeing under wide open throttle?

Same here, never goes past the middle of the gauge. And the third screen is blank... I was hoping for a way to program in other gauges. Maybe this is a future upgrade?

I think more gauges would be good but as a high milage night time driver I also like having a black screen. The darker the cab can be the better for me. Reduced glare, better night vision....
