Thread: Can I use this for gauges and tuning?

    Default Can I use this for gauges and tuning?

    Hi there, first want to say hello to everybody. I'm new to this forum and I will have tons of questions most likely . This is my first question and I hope you guys can help me out. I was looking to get this tablet http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...nder-_-na-_-na. I wanted to use it for gauges, and also for minor tweaking of maps here & there, when on the road or track. I already have a dedicated Windows XP laptop for tuning so that's not an issue. I just want to make sure that that tablet will be compatible. It says it has full Windows 8 on it, so I hope it's OK.

    Saw those threads, but didn't see the tablet in question. BUT from what I gather, since it has Windows 8 & USB port, it most likely is a yes.

    Be sure to do your research. I got all excited about (I think it's a Dell?) tablet, but the stupid thing only has ONE mini USB port, and it's used for a proprietary CHARGER; which means you cannot use the USB and the charger at the same time!!! And, of course, this also means that if you damage that one lonely port, "you are screwed."

    Also, I've read the processor speed makes a big difference, so it may be worth while to stick with something known to work.

    I have a Dell Venue 8 Pro and a Samsung ATIV. Both work fine. M

    That's good to know, thanks. Have you found any slick ways to mount either of them?

    What do you do about the "1 port"? Running the thing off the internal battery is not what I call "works fine". Have you found a work around?

    My response was to the comment about processor speed, and whether or not they would even work. I have the normal analog gauges in the dash, and use the tablet for fine tuning while running or comparing readings. Both the Dell and Samsung have good battery life. M
