My Laptop is too big to mount on my handelbars, but that is what I want!
Is it possible to run the Red Box software on a Tablet or such smaller device:confused: I looked at Windows phones but that is a Dead end for a few reasonso_O
When I search Tablets+Windows it doesent make it much clearer

Windows 11 Pro, supposedly the Red Box software is compatible

I should be but of course you can always downgrade to 10

It may be the only way, I have ordered from the UK, 600 bucks.
Will be a boon to have it mounted in a Tank bag then I can get further into this software on the run.

Although with a celeron its a bit slow but unless you do video editing that wont matter much. the mini hdmi allow a big screen to attach and if the built in graphic card is too slow the usb3 allow for an external usb graphics card - thats how I have 2 big monitors on my small notebook with basically the same configuration except I have an i7 processor. but then again it did cost twice the price. 4 years ago.
you have enough space and ssd is fast enough to have win10 run as virtual machine. if you only need it for this one application that seems the best way. you can also use a win7 virtual machine, will be faster and NMW runs on that too. I use it for old astrology software that does not run on 10.

Hopefully it is better than the Windows Mobile Phone my Mate recommended, that will not run exe. programs at all.
Surely there is a law against doing this?

@Dool althogh it would provide meaningful information, I advise not to do so! Riding and looking at the laptop screen might be not such a good idea!
Anyhow the software runs fine on Win11!
BTW it's going to be a challenge to see what's written in the cells with that tiny screen! :p

Yes it will be a Challenge, I agree its not a good idea also ;)I'm hoping it will at least give good throttle data and the ability to make changes on ( the side of ) the road.

A cheap Tank Bag will be sacrificed to make a Pouch and with , I hope the appropriate air flow to keep the super computer cool.

Nice little Toy now has a remote screen also 7 inch that will mount to the Tank Cap eventually with a Ball mount when all parts converge, should look more like a GPS that way.

The Tank Bag didn't survive the operation but gave useful data :ROFLMAO:

So , now the Plan is to carry the Small Laptop in a Shoulder Bag and have a remote screen that should not draw much attention but be able to display the program whilst riding.
Had to wire in a USB outlet for the screen and will rely on the laptop being fully charged as it needs 12V ( like where could I get that ?) all the cables are a mess but I dont want this on my bike!

Whether I will be able to see any of this on the road is yet to be determined :)
