I'm using Mission planner with windows 8 tablet.

As I know windows tablet have a function screen rotating.

It works on mine OK, looks kinda stretchy but, usable.

I am using an Asus Windows 8 tablet with good success. The only thing I find difficult is creating geofences using touch screen. I would highly suggest getting a stylus, and maybe even a Bluetooth keyboard and mouse.


You can run it vertically, but you don't get much map space that way and I can't seem to figure out how to rearrange everything, so I prefer to run it horizontally.

Also, don't make the same mistake as me and buy a tablet running Windows RT :/

Windows RT is so useless its have less than a half abilities of normal win 8

BTW im using Bluetooth mouse when im on field, works awesome.

What about Dell Latitude 10 is it OK for use with mission planner

Its the operating system that you need to worry about. It will work on XP, Vista, 7 & 8 but not Windows 8 RT.

I hear Dell is coming out with an 8" Windows 8.1 tablet called the Venue Pro 8 for $299 which looks pretty hawt.

Can we use mission planner on Windows RT ?

Last time I checked it didn't work on RT, I had to sell my RT tablet and get a proper Windows 8 one!

ohh , do you know if they gonna introduce Mission planner for Windows RT ?

Hi Ahmed, 

I have a Dell Latitude tablet and I am having trouble with my 3DR radio. Did you work out whether or not the Dell would work?



I am also interested in using MP on Windows RT.  There should be more than enough capability on the hardware, and software as well.  Could we entice someone to release a version to the Microsoft Store for us?  That would be a nice step up from my cell phone.


I'm having real troubles with this. I have a Dell Venue 8 Pro Windows 8 tablet and get this error when I install MP "This installation package could not be installed. Contact the application vendor to verify that this is valid..." I tried all fixes I could find online and nothing worked. Can anyone help?
