Looking for a mobile printer for my car/ on the road work for my IPAD2

Looking for a printer I can use in my car and where ever necessary.

I've been happily printing for a while from my iPad to my battery-operated HP H470 with absolutely no wires (and no router / pre-existing WiFi connection - it operates in AdHoc mode). Literally just the iPad and the H470 - in fact, one time in a marquee in the middle of a muddy field with no power and a long way from the nearest WiFi connection, so it can be done from literally anywhere.
Once I'd sorted it all out, I wrote down the solution and the steps to get it to work in the hope of helping others:

Hope that's useful to someone!
Thanks,

  • Can You mount a mac Pro In a case for On the Road work

    I do audio pre and post production and I was thinking aobu ttaking a mac pro and putting it in a rack sideways . I know that the HD need pins(I think) to do that But I dont really know much else. any suggestions are appreciated

    The MacPro is not a small tower. I don't think it will fit in a standard 19" rack case on it's side, even if you hack-sawed off the feet and handles (and who'd want to do that?!)
    You can rack your Mac vertically with this deal: (it says G5 but I think the case is the same size for MacPro?)
    http://www.redco.com/shopexd.asp?id=876
    And there are up to 5 rackspaces vertically for your outboard gear. This thing is the converter only and you still need to get a 12 space rack.

  • TS1702 I bought the megallan road gps I can't use it in the car on the road why what do I need to do

    I bought the Magellan road gps can't use while in the car what do I need to do while in car traveling

    Which model of the iPad do you have ? Only the 3G/4G models have a built-in GPS chip, if you have the wifi-only model then you will need an external GPS for it.

  • Where is the printer control panel so i can set up for mobile printing

    I am trying to set up for mobile printing and have come to the instruction point where they say to push a certain icon on the printer control panel on my 1102w printer and I have no idea whether this is something on my actual printer or on my computer?

    Hi,
    The printer control panel is on the printer, it can be LCD screen or just buttons.
    Regards.

  • Looking for SIMPLE time tracking app

    Hi all
    I'm looking for a really simple 'retrospective' time sheet app - wondering if anyone knows one?
    I've seen literally hundreds, but they all want you to 'click to start the clock' and then click to end it. This doesn't work for me, as I spend only about 25% of my time in front of the computer.
    What I'm looking for is something that I can put all my client contacts in, then separately link projects to those clients. Then at the end of each day I can quickly recall what I did during the day and assign time to each project.
    Most apps want you to assign time to each project as you go through the day, so its relatively painless to switch projects. However when you do it all at the end of the day, you don't want to keep entering the date, you just want to enter the start/end time, and what project it was. More like a journal entry I guess.
    Then at the end of the month it would print a report that groups the hours worked on each project so that you can review them and create an invoice (or in my case send to my accounts clerk who makes the invoice for me).
    Any ideas from anyone would be greatly appreciated.
    Thanks!

    Hi shannonbray, welcome to the AppleWorks forum, which is intended for discussions of Apple's now-legacied productivity suite called AppleWorks.
    One could develop such a template using the spreadsheet or database modules of AW separately or in combo,but it doesn't sound as if that's your aim. I'm sure clever types have done such things, and perhaps shared them to the AWUserGroups and such, and I hope they note your post and reply. There are certainly numerous clever folks who follow this forum, and they may have pointers to other apps for you, but essentially I think you've posed the wrong question in the wrong place.

  • HT4356 I checked everything out and had no problem printing from IPAD/MINI using the HP Photosmart 6520 printer, but the next day, using same application, my HP did not show, but was looking for the AirPrint Printer, what am I doing wrong?

    Using IPAD2, IPAD MINi, HP photosmartE6520 set up on wireless network.  No problem printing from my devices, but the following day, it is looking for AirPrint printer, why? 

    Hello lenc48,
    Welcome to the HP Forums.
    I see that you are having a few issues when it comes to printing from your mac as well as some two sided printing issues.
    I do have a some suggestions that we can try in the attempt to troubleshoot this issue.
    First off, please make sure that you have the printer power cable connected directly to a wall outlet and not a power bar/strip. Here is a document that uses a LaserJet printer as an example but it is meant for HP products in general. Please click on the following link that explains the Issues when Connected to an Uninterruptible Power Supply/Power Strip/Surge Protector.
    Please remove the usb cable (if using wireless, disregard this step) from the printer and from the Mac and leave it disconnected until further notice.
    Please click on the first link that will give you instructions on Uninstalling the Printer Software.
    Once the software has been removed, please disable any anti virus protection that you may have on the Mac. 
    The next step we are going to take is downloading the HP Photosmart 6520 e-All-in-One Printer Full Feature Software and Drivers - OS X 10.9 Mavericks.
    The installation will prompt you when to connect the usb cable (You will see a prompt for a wireless connection as well if that is the connection type you would like to use) so please do not connect the cable until prompted to do so.
    If you are still having issues, feel free to write me back or you can contact HP Total care direct.  If you are calling within North America, the number is 1-800-474-6836 and for all other regions, click here: click here.
    Thanks for your time.

  • Looking for portable wireless printer for new iPad mini

    I am looking to purchase a portable printer for a new ipad mini.  I am on the road alot, and need a printer that I can plug into the car, hotel, airport, etc..  I looked at the Canon ip100, which  is portable, but does not support AirPrint, but it has bluetooth.  The printer looks nice, portable, even battery operated, but does not work with ipad.  Does anyone have any suggestions?  Thank you in advance.

    You maybe able to see if there is a Canon app that will allow you to print to the printer even though its not compatible.
    If not here is a list of compatible air print printers http://support.apple.com/kb/ht4356

  • Mobile printing solutions for iPad

    Hello I would like to see if anyone can help with this...We are trying to equip our service employees with printing capabilities while they are out in the field.  I know that it seems that the best way to go is with utilizing the air print feature of the iPad, however looking at the supported printers (found on the apple website) i dont see any that seem all that "portable" in regards to size and weight.  How are others handling their printing needs on the go?
    Thank you very much!!

    looking to do the same thing.
    Thanks to all who contributed to this thread/
    HP offers something called mobile printing solutions.
    apparently at Kinkos and other selected locations, a person can send thier docs to be printed rom thie i pad.
    i downloaded the HP mobile printing app, but the local Kinkos is some distance away, so i have not yet tried it.
    Bersides, there would be a cost per page.  for printing.
    sending e mail attachments to companies with printing capabilities i have tried.
    Staples offers this serivce, but I sent some docs and they had to be adjusted and modified by the Staples printing department to enable correct printing on a page, so that particular abenue may be out.
    ( i made the document using Noteworthy app and sent it to Dropbox and sent the resulting PDF from dropbox to Staples, who printed the test, but told me it requireed page modification..
    I have no idea why as the page i had worked up into a PDF had a standard word processing format.
    Thanks for all who contribute their time and experience in these forums

  • Looking for help - Company is going to Mobile Asset Management service that does not support BB - especially BB 10.

    Hello,
    I am looking for ideas/help. I currently have a BB Z10 (10.1.0.2039) with Verizon Wireless.  The company has a BB Enterprise Server for older devices (I previously was on that).  I bought a Z10 several months ago and have been connecting to the corporate network through Lotus Traveler. They do not have and will not implement a BB 10 Enterprise Server. Some in IT informed that if the company used the BB software they could manage all devices..... not accepted.
    All my contacts, calendar, and company email is funneled to the BB Hub.....
    So my company is implementing a Mobile Asset Management Service that I have to sign up for (Airwatch?).  They only support Android and IPhone.
    Will future versions of the BB OS support Android Apps.... Soon (I have less than 2 weeks)
    I have read where it is possible to put the device in development mode to run Android Apps.  I don't know if that will work with this and have no idea how stable the phone is in that mode. I travel internationally so I don't know how a development mode would work overseas. Any thoughts?
    I like my Z10 but will need to switch to keep functionality if I can't find a work around 
    Any assistance ????
    Thanks for any help.

    Hi and Welcome to the Community!
    BB10 devices have the ability to run .apk apps via special methods. Development Mode is used only for installing the app...not for normal operation. So you install (side-load) the app in Development Mode, then go back to normal mode for normal operations.
    If a .bar file for the .apk app already exists somewhere, you can side load it to the BB10 device and see if it works or not. If there is not yet any .bar file, there is an app called SideSwype that can convert many .apk apps to .bar and install it to your device.
    Good luck!

    I downloaded CS6 and am having issues with my print driver. It is not compatible with the HP 2600n and have tried to download drivers given to me by adobe ( (Jupiter 3) but it is not working. after a few days. Its a temporary fix and is still looking for the HP driver when i boot up. It also will not save in any print or postscript format. Does anyone know how to fix?
    Currently use a Mac with the latest Mavericks 10.9.4

        Oh boy! Acting kind of weird seems to be an understatement, aquaequus!
    What type of troubleshooting were we able to do with you? I want to make sure that we can get some sort of resolution for this problem.
    It is quite possible the battery door may get your phone in working order again. I'm not sure if the store has it in stock, but it is available in our warehouse for $14.99 which can be ordered via customer service.

  • Looking for a specific car dock... can you help?

    I'm looking for a car dock that connects directly to the cig lighter, but uses the 30-pin port for audio transmission to the 3.5mm aux jack on my stereo.  This way I could leave the dock connected to both the cig lighter and aux ports, and only need to place my iPhone in the dock to charge and play tunes (instead of hooking up to the headphone port every time as well). 
    Anyone know of such a product?  Belkin used to make one for the 3GS, but the TuneDirect for the iPhone 4 requires connecting a separate headphone cord.

    Looks like we'll have to put the miracle status on hold for a bit...that's not the article he's looking for. I've seen the same one before, and I'm pretty sure it came from Mark Spencer. He demonstrates the use of the Motion 3 "motion-tracking" tool by shrinking the head of a guy walking across a parking lot. Pretty cool tutorial and not at all the same one in the link above.
    Wish I knew where I'd seen it, but I can't recall at the moment.
