Meshtastic

Suggestions for alternative to Phone as App interface

Hi one and all,

I hope this is the correct category…

Has anybody found a android tablet that could be used alongside Meshtastic?

I am thinking that I’d like to keep the phone tucked away and have a cheap phone sized (or even a little smaller) tablet that could be used as the Meshtastic screen. With the exception of battery life it can be reasonably low spec, as I can see the App or the Maps needing too much compute power.

Sadly everything I can find on google seems to be too large and short on battery life.

Cheers
Paul

I asked a similar question in the “Android OS Requirements” thread earlier today… +1

I’ve found the $25 to $30 pay as you go phones are cheaper than a tablet. Buy whatever has the latest
android at the cheapest price. Don’t activate it and use the android.
