I unfortunately know nothing about Moto Mods, but one cool device you might want to investigate for some network related tools functionality, is this one:
I took a risk and purchased it during the kickstarter phase, but it is a shipping product now. It is really useful! It uses BLE to connect to the phone, and its core functionality works well. Prior to this, I had a very primitive cable tester.
ey shabaz ,
I actually own this device already ! Lol I been 6 months since I have owned it , I ordered it from Germany and to my surprise in arrived in a matter of twodays . I like the fact you can select all tools you can use and it will export all results on a PDF file if you want . If I had to find something I didn't like about it it would be that I'm not to sure if the cable length measure is accurate .
Oh! : ) Nice to know a fellow Pockethernet user. You're right on the length/TDR feature, I find especially on very short lengths sometimes it is off by a metre or two. It's a difficult measurement for a low-cost device I guess! And another thing that would be nice to see is some docking capability for the remote piece.. I'm always concerned I'm going to lose it.
First of all let me say Hello to everyone , and thank the community for allowing the ability to tinker with MDK and share thoughts on potential concepts .
I have a couple of ideas I've been playing with , one of which being : why isn't there a talk of a audio DAC moto mod option ? Looking at the pin layouts there is usb bus and I believe android naitvely supports usb audio adapters. I tried used the Asus u3 sonar usb soundcard with an moto g5s over OTG and it worked , however without software to adjust the audio the sound was terrible . The market for it is niche , but would definitely stand out . Maybe even team up with Teenage Engineering and make something with the "pocket operator" family name , make a fun little platform/device.
My background is network IT , and one thing that I would love love love to see is a moto mod with a LAN port (or 2) and some form of wed-admin with an array of network related tools - maybe even some Cisco integration. I know I know , the marketing for this fictional device is even more niche , but I would love to pay for this even if I had to pay for the Meraki or Fingbox integration . For those familiar with raspi look up "GeeekPI Enc28j60" which uses SPI bus to get the ethernet talking (slow , yes , but it works) and webmin as a form of server and module management . An on the fly wireshark tool or even something to replace my fluke micro scanner would be amazing !
This is my first post so please be gentle , I'll do my best to engage any discussions or ideas .
