bm3 tablet recs

Anyone have recommendations for a tablet to use as a dedicated device for flashing, logging, and real-time monitoring of the dashboard gauges?

I'm trying to set up a dash-mounted tablet with USB cable connection to the wireless agent device, in order to free up my phone for using Waze or similar apps.
Hopefully, this would also mitigate the issue I've noticed with receiving notifications on the phone triggering loss of a stable connection to the agent device.

I've tried a Samsung Galaxy Tab A, as well as a cheap/generic Android tablet. However, the data link to the never seems to establish and the tablets will not detect the wireless agent.

Any tips or recommendations for achieving a similar setup are greatly appreciated.

I use a Windows 10 Asus tablet with a USB 3.0 to Ethernet dongle which works perfectly. I would recommend something along those lines
