Cortex multiple users

so i have done a little searching and i cant seem to find an answer,

i am planning on splitting a superchips cortex programmer with a friend of mine who has an 06 xterra 4.0L

i was wondering if we will face any problems like if the programmer needs to be plugged in to work, or if the programmer imprints itself to a vehicle, or if there is a difference between the two vehicles even though superchips says the same model works for both vehicles since they have the same engine.

i assume i will encounter no problems but would like other peoples opinion or if anyone has any first hand experience with this. i haven't emailed superchips themselves because the way i figure it they have a vested interest to tell me that i need to buy 2

thanks for the help

for $100 you can get an update (additional license) that would allow you to use the tuner on 2 vehicles at once... presumably 2 of your own vehicles. On my last update a few weeks ago it was offered. I have an 07 frontier and an 05 pathfinder. I may pay for that ability in the future.
That option does not allow you to purchase an additional license to use on an additional vehicle. It is simply to unlock your tuner if you a) bought it used and the original owner didnt return it to stock or b) you brought the vehicle to the dealer and they overwrote your tune (you need to return it to stock before you bring to the dealer in case the dealer updates your vehicle)

"Part Number: 4950VINULK - If the screen on your tuner displays that it is locked to another vehicle or does not seem to be working properly you may need to do a ‘Tuner Unlock’. There are a few things that can cause this such as purchasing a used tuner or not returning your vehicle to stock prior to receiving service at an auto dealer. "

If you scroll down on that upgrade it states "NOTE: This tool does not allow you to tune multiple vehicles. "
