New Surface Pro (2017) Official Thread

Here you go

I use mine with the Surface Pro 3 dock not the newer one. It does not drain unless you are gaming since the SP3 dock charger is only 50 watts. When gaming, the SP consumes a bit more than that.
 
New Surface Pro LTE review and issues
3 weeks later I thought I would report on the pros and Cons
this is the i5, 256 gb , 8 gigs of ram and the Qualcomm 885 Always on LTE modem
Pros:
  1. Very Fast Load :).. 3 seconds to my chrome browser, ( much faster than my i7 7100 with 16 gigs of ram.)
  2. LTE works well! I am live all the time.
  3. Like the form factor ...12.5 in screen .. improvement over my Surface 3 LTE.
  4. Love my Maroon Colour scheme ..Keyboard and Mouse
  5. Battery life is good gets me through a full 8-10 hour day on lte
  6. Fast battery recharge
Cons:
  1. Speakers SUCK big time.. I think the quietest of (17) tablets I have owned.
  2. Bluetooth does not connect speaker and microphone to Microsoft Sync in my Ford and Ford Sync 3 ( all other Apple and Samsung tablets do connect)
  3. Proprietary charging cable ..grrrr Not buying a second charger for the car yet
  4. GPS Mapping Issues: cannot seem to get Google Maps to show location, nor Microsofts Terrible Map Pro. But the basic windows 10 Maps do show my location.. So maybe I need to tweak some configurations, but all other lte G3 Apple or Samsung tablets have had issues showing my Location while driving.
As a Road Warrior, the poor Speakers, lack of Bluetooth connection to cars speakers and microphone, and the non-function of google maps are critical issues.
Until these problems are solved it is back to the Samsung note 12.2. :(

Has anyone else got google maps to show your live time location when driving??

What Bluetooth speaker microphone systems are compatible with the Surface Pro LTE

I need wireless speakers minimun.. currently trying the Bose mini speakers.. just wish it had the microphone built-in and was a smaller form factor.. will use in my 2017 Ford Edge
