I realized I never thought much about Chromecast because I have long since upgraded to all smart TV's at home. When I want to cast something from my PC, a laptop, or my phone, I just do it. No extra hardware required or desired.

Smart TVs are nice , but not sure if mirroring devices to them is dependent or not on both devices being connected to the WIFI network.
I never used Chromecast myself for casting because I heard it requires running Google Chrome Browser and having a strong WIFI signal, where the ActionTec Screen Beam Mini 2 does not require any open browser or WIFI connection at all, and you can still use an Actiontec USB transmitter on a Legacy device like a Windows 7 or 8 laptop to connect to the Screen Beam Mini 2 (and thinking maybe it work fine on a Verus Edge or Zeus, but not sure)
Other than a HDMI cable I haven't read about people mirroring Chinaman scan tools wirelessly to a big screen TV. I might be able to somehow install Google Chrome Browser some way and use Chromecast device Toltecas Chavez mentioned, but hate to have something go wrong where I woud need to recover device and have to buy another update to be able to re download the software if the back up on my Thumb drive would not work.

Wow, I really haven't looked at the prices of 32" HD monitors in a long time, but the non touchscreen monitor prices have come down to where you can now get 720p ones for only a $100.
With HDMI cables and or wireless mirroring now a days what would the benefit be of buying a dedicated PC monitor, if a 32" TV can fill the same need and offer built in speakers and OTA digital TV channels with a digital OTA antenna in your Tool Box Hutch or mounted to a purpose built cart?
I can see some benefit in a large shop of a large touch screen monitor getting most of the wear and tear and having the actual Zeus or Edge staying clean and secure out of sight in the docking station till road test time.A wireless mouse and keyboard help keep both cleaner
