I fly a Quik GT450 flexwing, and use a iPad Mini 2 to run SkyDemon.
The iPad mini is, I feel, a little too large for the available room on my panel. And it's now, being quite old, beginning to play up a little.
What is the best option to replace it? It needs to have a bigger screen than my IPhone 7, but a smaller one than the iPad mini - and an iPhone XS max, which would probably be perfect with its 6½" screen, is stupidly expensive. There are (quite cheap) 7" tablets available, such as the Samsung Galaxy Tab A7 - but is the screen on that device visible in sunlight conditions? & can it manage up to 10K AMSL in an open cockpit? (Sunlight making the screen difficult to see is actually something of an issue with the iPad mini 2!)
(& sorry if this the wrong sub-forum, but I couldn't see one relating hardware)
+x stevelup - 4/17/2019 4:09:53 PMIt really does depend how much of a problem your size issue is.The very best thing to replace your Mini 2 with is a 4th or 5th generation Mini. You'll be blown away by how much better the screen is than your Mini 2, and how much faster it is. The 4th and 5th generation Mini has a bonded/laminated screen (no gap between the digitiser and the LCD) and an anti-reflective coating. In bright light it makes a huge difference.Any cheap Android device will have a lacklustre screen as do most mobile phones.If you want something smaller, you might want to just consider a second hand big phone (one of the Samsung Galaxy Notes or something similar).
