Default iPad latency

Hi,
while working with the dock I recognized the iPads' display is always a little late, especially the transport display. I'm using an iPad mini 2. Is this latency WiFi related? Can it be fixed with the camera connection kit plus USB to Ethernet?
I would like to use the USB port on the back of the dock not only for charging but for communication as well. May that be possible one day?

Best

Mark

I haven't noticed iPad latency but I also haven't looked for it. I don't think I've read that the cam connection to Ethernet thing works.

It's easy to see if you're working on a piece of music. Look at the bars and beats display on your computer screen and compare it to the one on the iPad. In my setup at around 110 bpm the iPad was nearly a quarter note to late.

Use the new Lighting to USB3 camera connection kit with the Apple ethernet adapter. Fully supported by Avid and works great.

Are you using 2.4 Ghz or 5Ghz wifi? If the former, I'm not surprised. If using 5Ghz and it's still sluggish then a good option is using the USB3 camera adapter + USB2 Ethernet adapter combo for wired connection to iPad.

Hi, it's a 5 GHz wifi. But I assume from your answers that the wired connection introduces less latency. But the lightning port can't be used to power the iPad then. Is there a solution to have both?

Yes it can. The Camera Adapter has female lightning port to allow a lightning cable to be attached for charging. This cable can then be connected to USB port on back of Dock.
