    Hey guys I’m wondering if anyone has ever used a tablet with their xfi 2.0. I currently have the fast data dash which is ok. It’s super primitive in comparison to other company’s dash packs. Not very impressed, I’ve been thinking of converting to a tablet for the sheer size and ability to run the larger dash feature, not to mention tuning, and data logging all in one platform. Has anyone ever done this or have an idea of it will work.

    I use a Toshiba tablet with windows 10, works fine, I need to mount it in a cradle on the transmission tunnel for ease of use in arms reach when strapped in

    How much was your tablet? Does it have the proper usb outlet to hook up to the ecu?

    For those files that are too big what I've done is sent the picture to myself via text, then used that copy to upload. Seems doing this gives you a reduced size copy. Quality still looks good.

    I actually already have one of those rca tablet/laptops with the removable keyboard. Maybe I’ll use that
