Hello Tore,

If the French language is not a problem for you, here is a link to a page in French that explains how to operate the laptop with the tablet or phone.

Piloter un PC avec un smartphone ou une tablette

Re: Connecting Tab to Laptop via Teamviewer LAN

Hi Torre. I run a laptop down on the nav station and currently use a wired remote LCD screen which swings out from the companionway, which I can view from the helm. And I use a wireless 'presentation' mouse to control the computer.

This works well for me, but my eyes are getting worse and sometimes the screen is just too far away for my old eyes. We have a big cockpit, it's about 5-6' feet. I'd love to hook up a wireless connection using an Android 7" tablet we recently bought.

So I'd like to do what you did. I have played with Splashtop and AirDisplay in the past. They seemed laggy and I decided it was not workable. Is Teamviewer better?

I only did this once, and it may have been my old iPad 1 was laggy, and not the whole setup. I haven't had a chance to go back and try with our new Android tablet and see if it works better. But I stumbled across your Teamviewer thread while looking for something else.

Just curious how Teamviewer compares with AirDisplay and Splashtop.

Re: Connecting Tab to Laptop via Teamviewer LAN

Can't compare to the other two products but TeamViewer works great between my Samsung TAB2 10" (Android) and old Windows XP laptop.

It defaults to an Internet based connection, so be sure to set it up for a local LAN connection. That should minimize lag issues.

You can download and try it out for free.
