a few posts mention that control through a Tablet/Phone might work with a portable AP, but nobody seems to have tried it and written about it.
After I keep tripping over the wires and almost killed my laptop I tried it with a TL-MR3040 portable AP and it works great. The AP has an in-built battery which powers the topside box and network lag seems acceptable with 90 to 260ms. Will try it at the lake later this week and hopefully at sea on the weekend.
- PELI 1450 case for everything
- PELI 1050 case for topside box and AP
- TP-Link TL-MR3040 portable AP (comes with network cable and USB cable)
- iPad 3
- 2x Scotch resticable silicone mounting tabs for sticking the iPad to the lid
This makes for a very nice control station! Interestingly no video feed on Chrome on iOS, but everything works great in Safari.
