I went to Florida for a week so I am catching up on things. Here are some misc thoughts from my trip and email catch-up.
My iOS Gear I took was fairly light. I brought my iPad as well as the GNS GPS receiver I just reviewed. I used my dedicated TomTom car unit but brought the GNS as backup. TomTom stayed in the rental car pretty much the whole time. (I did not want to leave the iPad in the car.)
I debated on bringing a keyboard with me for the iPad. I ended up not and I did not regret it at once. I used the iPad heavily at the airport and on the plane. During the week, I was busy enjoying the various amusement parks in Orlando and trying to get a sun tan. I would have used it more during the week when I was at the place we stayed but there was no internet service.
