Additional Questions:

- Do I need wifi to operate the unit?

No, you do not necessarily need Wi-Fi to use Rapsodo. While some features of Rapsodo products may require an internet connection for certain functionalities, the core functionality of Rapsodo devices can be used without Wi-Fi.

Rapsodo devices typically connect directly to your iPad through a wireless connection. The device captures and processes data internally, which can then be accessed and analyzed through the Rapsodo software installed on your device. This means that you can use the device and access basic data without an active internet connection.

However, to take full advantage of Rapsodo's cloud-based features, such as data storage, sharing, and advanced analytics, an internet connection is required. Additionally, software updates and firmware upgrades may also require an internet connection to ensure you have the latest features and improvements.

It's important to consult the user manual or Rapsodo's documentation specific to your device to understand its connectivity requirements and any limitations associated with using the product without an internet connection.

- How can I better display the data?

Customers have the ability to display the Rapsodo App outside of the iPad by screen mirroring the interface to a TV. Many smart TVs support wireless screen mirroring standards.
