I personally use a phone for my cars and customer cars. Mainly because i feel tablets are bulky. But either or will work.

Software will figure out which it is by the software ID
Thanks for confirming a phone could do it. That's awesome.

To the useless poster above, perryo91 I know what OTG stands for, yes, I googled and figured out it stands for On The Go shortly after... But that still doesn't tell me how I'd find out if my Android phone (it's just some cheapo brand I use while travelling) is OTG compatible or not. I'm not up on the Android phone stuff, having forever had an iPhone...

That's what I was getting at, since it's not obvious to you...

This is the phone I've got:
