Re: The iPad thread! who uses an iPad for sailing?
I took mine on a two-week cruise in the summer, and glare was never really an issue. Maybe it's because I wear polarized sunglasses?
I did have one issue. We had the sun over our shoulder for the afternoon of the hottest day of the year. At around 4 pm, the pedestal-mounted iPad announced that it was going to take a coffee break - it had overheated in the sun. I took it below, put a fan on it, and it came back to life in about 10 minutes. I was briefly kind of scared.
I have been using iSailor, which I thought was pretty good, now the latest version (1.5) is a huge leap forward in ease of use and functionality.
