    VCDS and the HEX-USB+CAN is only for Windows.

    For anything else (like Android), VCDS-Mobile with a HEX-NET interface.

    If your tablet has a USB-connector, you're able to connect a hex-can cable to it, but there is no driver/software for it so it has no use to try!

    Like Uwe said, you then need VCDS-mobile and a Hex-Net interface...

    You could connect it to a Windows 8 tablet.

    You cannot connect a HEX-USB+CAN to an Android or other tablet. If you want to run our VCDS - software product on an Android or other tablet, you must buy the HEX-NET wireless interface as it runs our VCDS-Mobile software which is not Windows base, is web browser based...

    This might be the only reason I can think of to use this Surface. I will give it a shot and see what I can learn. It's certainly better as a logging device than any of the laptops I have!

    +1 for using the Surface as a logging/diagnostic device. I may actually buy one with my own money just to use with VCDS. Uwe, you working on an interface for those Holo-goggles MSFT introduced yesterday?

    VCDS with proper settings can be used on a Windows 8/8.1 tablet without problem - actually I'm using it as a 2nd device in the garage. It's the Lenovo Miix 3 8". What is *really* a big problem is the LCode which is a rather old windows styled app and when using it on touchscreen it's impossible to check the checkboxes by touch. Using the touch keyboard is not so comfortable, as it covers the LCode window and you can't see nothing you're coding.

    So I would kindly ask for a new LCode tablet-friendly version. I'd do a new alternative app myself, it's a matter of few hours coding in Visual Studio - but as 99,99% of the label files are encrypted, it has no meaning to do that and me (as well as others) have to rely on the original author, who knows how to decrypt the xpl files...

    There are viable Win 8.1 tablet options for cheap, such as an HP Stream 7 for under $100. That's what I'm using VCDS on with micro-CAN dongle. Works quite well though there is a learning curve for not having a real keyboard among other things.

    Got the idea from the Vortex where we derailed the thread Can I use Chrombook with Vagcom? to talk about using a Windows 8 tablet with VCDS.

    Hey Bruce I know this is an old thread. I'm wondering if the VCDS "wired" will work on a Windows 10 tablet. I can't find Windows 8 tablets anymore.
    Thanks
