Can I use my Vernier "wired" sensors with Graphical Analysis 4 on an iPad, Chromebook, Android tablet, or other mobile devices?

There are several ways in which you can use Vernier "wired" sensors with iOS and Android devices and Chromebooks.

Using a wireless (Bluetooth) interface
Wireless data collection is supported on iOS and Android devices with the following interfaces:
     LabQuest Stream, order code LQ-STREAM, $199
     Go Wireless Link
Note: Data collection using a wireless interface is not yet supported with a Chromebook.

Using a wired (USB) interface
The following interfaces can be used with Chromebooks when connected via a USB connection:
     Go!Link, order code GO-LINK, $69
     LabQuest Mini, order code LQ-MINI, $149
     LabQuest Stream, order code LQ-STREAM, $199
     LabQuest 2, order code LABQ2, $329
     Original LabQuest
Note: Data collection through a USB connection with iOS and Android devices is not supported.

Data Sharing: using a wireless (Wi-Fi) connection
The Data Sharing feature allows lab groups to connect and collect data from any of our wired sensors and stream it wirelessly (via Wi-Fi) to the tablet or mobile device of every member of the lab group.
     - LabQuest 2 serves as a Data Sharing source without the need for a computer.
     - Logger Pro can enable a Data Sharing source on a computer to support existing sensors and interfaces (such as LabQuest mini, LabQuest Stream, LabPro, and Go!Link).
