SO in my case the computer may just be 40 feet away, BUT I get the awesome screen rez and OLED colors etc in my hands so that I don't have to try and fit a 15" MBP in a cockpit that is just about 18" width and the distance between my face and the steering wheel is about 1/2 arms length AND no keyboard ... sounds pretty good to me !! in the day light I believe the OLED will be very bright another PLUS .
so this remote PC allows you to manipulate all the software open or closed ??

Remote PC (actually remote control of a PC) means you connect to your computer from your tablet, and fully control it from there. Basically, what you get is the display of your computer's desktop on your tablet, as well as some specific control options (mouse emulation or direct touch and a touch keyboard).

You can therefore theorically do pretty much everything you would do with the computer itself, including starting or closing apps, or even shut the computer down.
However, as the remote control is only allowed by a specific application that is running both on the computer and the tablet, either shutting off the application or the computer will end the remote control, leaving you unable to turn it back on.

The range of use for remote control depends on the mean used. You can control your computer locally through local network (if both are connected to the same wifi, for example), or from further away through the internet (both need to be connected to the internet, though).
Through the internet the responsiveness of the remote will depend on the quality of the connexion. The connectivity needs to be strong enough to sustain an ongoing video stream from the PC to the tablet.

It does work well. I posted a screenshot of using Remote PC on Samsung, but for whatever reason that post was deleted. At any rate, I would probably still opt for a Surface Pro 3, although using Remote PC will work as well.

Just remember you need a WiFi connection for it to work. Out on the track I doubt you have that.

Or just use Teamviewer, Chrome Remote Desktop, VNC....tons of alternatives out there. They all work outside of wifi as well.
