Default Laptop docking station and Note 10.1

Hi,

I'm currently exploring ways to connect my Note 10.1 to the Smart board/VGA in my classroom. Ideally, I would also like sound through the independent speakers. My first thoughts are thus:

Ekit 4 straight into the tablet.

eKit 4 in 1 Connection Kit Compatible with Galaxy Tab 8.9", Galaxy Tab 2 10.1" and Galaxy Note 10.1": Amazon.co.uk: Computers & Accessories

iKross connector into the micro usb on the Ekit.

iKross MHL Micro-USB to VGA Display and Stereo Audio: Amazon.co.uk: Electronics

Not sure if that will work, but I'm still exploring.

My second thought was a laptop docking station with an independent power supply that everything could plug in to and could be left on my desk. Again, not sure if this will work, but I was looking at this one:

http://www.amazon.co.uk/StarTech-com-Universal-Docking-Station-Ethernet/dp/B003EKDYL0/ref=wl_it_dp_o_pC_S_nC?ie=UTF8&colid=1BXOTOW0UX49E &coliid=IOFYQKMRYZQXR

If I could connect that via the USB to the 30 pin on the tablet, it would have all the VGA/sound/usb requirements I could possibly need.

Before I start spending, has anyone tried this before or have any other configurations?

Cheers,

Thorchild

None of those will work.

1. Gives you USB and card readers only.
2. Gives you MicroUSB that is not supported.
3. Not for the tablet.

You need this:
Genuine Samsung Galaxy Note 10.1 Desktop Dock - EDD-D100BEG-EGSTD

And with it use this:
Amazon.com: Samsung ECC1TP0BBEGSTA Galaxy Tab TV Out Cable: Computers & Accessories

or this:

Amazon.com: Samsung EPL-3PHPBEGXAR Galaxy Tab HDTV Adapter: MP3 Players & Accessories

Thanks for the reply, but those options are not suitable either.
I need to be able to connect a standard (male), VGA monitor connector to the tablet as that is used on all projector/smart boards in schools for displaying a laptop on the screen. I would also like to be able to connect the speakers to the tablet using a standard 3.5mm jack, which is why I was looking at my option 2, as it has all the relevant connections that I need. I thought if I could connect it to the tablet using option 1 via the micro USB, I might have a solution.

I have seen a VGA to 30 pin connector, but it was for the iPad. I need something like this, but with a 3.5mm jack like my option 2.

You cannot just randomly choose an accessory for a device and decide to use it with your tablet, does not work like that.

The only thing to achieve your goal is to add an HDMI to VGA converter and you are done. The docking station I linked to has audio out and connector that will let you use tablet to HDMI and then you only need HDMI to VGA. Even though, I truly doubt those projectors only have VGA and not HDMI, but still.
