Tether P45+ to a tablet

Postby 77E53XUEXKATN53M » Wed Jun 07, 2017 6:45 am

Does anyone know of a 2in1 or tablet on the market today that can be used to tether a P45+?

I'm hoping that one of the new Surface Pro clones will work as some of them have Thunderbolt USB-C ports.
For example, the HP Spectre X360 or Lenovo Yoga 900.

Has anyone tried this something like this?

Hi
We have done some tests.
According to list the USB-C on the HP it does carry Thunderbolt 3.

The test we have done was on Mac (not verified on Windows)
It will not work with TB3 to TB2 adapter + TB2 to FW which would be the only single cable solution.
However it will work with OWC or Belkin Docks. Either direct it TB3 or through TB3 to TB2 adapter.

However this might counterproductive to have a dock that requires AC power with a ultra portable laptop.

The best solution is of course to upgrade to a IQ back which have USB connection.
Kind Regards

Thanks for the tip Ulf!

Maybe I am looking for too much out of 1 device.
At least I can run C1 on an ultraportable tablet and tether with a dock.
That's good enough I think.
