This heavily depends on your tablet. If the tablet has USB OTG, then you need a working Videograbber with an App that is supported by your device. The only devices I can think of where this could work are android phones as Apple is very restrictive!
a couple seconds after I powered this up, the video came on, then smoke and popped something in the board. I'm not sure if I got a bad one, but I'm hoping it didn't also toast my camera. Had the proper power supply, and antenna hooked up.. Not sure what's up with it
From the 2 pin... Upon doing some research I discovered it is reverse polarity. I switched the and - wires on the connector that was supplied, so the replacement should be fine when I connect it. Still a little frustrated that it was sent with a power wire with the wrong polarity set up.
Be very careful if using with the GOPRO. First of all the main supply is incorrect, red is negative and vice versa. When connecting the gopro I found that ground was outputting 12v which subsequently blew the 'video out' from the GOPRO, not impressed. Again, make sure of polarities before connecting anything. Not sure if this applies to all units or if I was just unlucky. I now have a GOPRO which I cannot use for FPV.

Very good little unit, when paired up with a blue beam antenna set (cloverleaf skew planar) i get 2000 feet crystal clear. Haven't gone further yet.

I've used mine once only so far and flew exactly 1.7km far using Circular Wireless skew planer wheel antennas. I didn't even bother to try the standard omni antennas. I was impressed with the range.
Some documentation on how to use audio would be nice to have since it has 2 audio input connections and a microphone. I'm using an external mic connected to both input audio wires at the same time. I don't know if the transmitter switches the internal microphone off based on some conditions or not.
