Hi dpjmail ,
Warm Greetings & welcome back to Lenovo Community, happy to have you here.
As I understand that you have query regarding compatibility of ThinkPad OneLink+ Dock with X1 Carbon 5th Gen.
I would like to know if there is anyway I can use the X1 Carbon 5th Gen with my OneLink + Dock station.
Sadly, there is no other way or workaround to use ThinkPad OneLink+ Dock with X1 Carbon 5th Gen as OneLink+ connector is not present in this system
I hope the above information helped you.
Please feel free to post in Lenovo Community Forums if you have any further queries!

Prabhansh, thanks but sad to know I can use the OneLink Dock with my new X1 5th computer
Well I know that's sad, but system does support new Thunderbolt 3 Dock & other USB docks.

We currently have a X1 Carbon (Gen 4) environment with OneLink+ docking stations. As these are now EOL and the new Gen 5 X1's are using the USB-C connections (along with their docks) we're in a bit of a pickle due to newly procured laptops not working with any exisiting hardware and the exisiting laptops not being compatible with the new Gen 5 docks. We work in a hotdesking environment so new docks on certain desks limit the desks usage to only users who will have Gen 5 laptops.
Has anyone came across any adapters to resolve this or is anyone having a similar issue and come up with a solution that doesn't invovle a hardware refresh?
Thanks in advance!
