The connection from the ROV to your computer is an Ethernet cable. You then set a static IP address for the ROV. If you do not have an Ethernet port you can connect the ROV to a router and then connect using the wireless to the router and then the router will assign a new IP address that you can then log into the ROV from.

This would allow you to connect to the ROV from a tablet. If the ROV detects a touch enabled device it brings up onscreen controls for the ROV. They are still a beta version so we can not guarantee the reliability of them. Alternatively you can control the ROV from a gamepad controller.

If you search the forums for "tablet" and "gamepad" you can learn more about what other members of the community are doing.

If you have any questions I would encourage you to post on the forums.

I hope this helps.
