Exactly six months ago today, I wrote a post lamenting about the sad state of the dry bags that we had purchased over the years. I was specifically looking for suggestions for a waterproof case for our new iPad mini. Now able to take advantage of the big block stores here in mainland USA, we finally made a decision and purchased a Lifeproof case for each of our devices (since that original post Rebecca also purchased an iPad mini). While I have not submerged the iPad to test the case’s functionality, we were advised to soak the case for 30 minutes before putting the iPad into it. The protective case seemed to fare well on that test so I am confident it will be able to deal with the odd sea water splash once we’re back on the boat.
The iPads have been a great tool for us and yesterday we really put mine through the paces, using it as a GPS map tool to direct us from Loveland to Boulder to Denver and back. Rebecca and I had a number of errands to run, including visiting the Apple store to get my laptop repaired and also shopping for some boat gear at REI. This was our first time driving the Corvette which will be our transport to and from California. As you may imagine, it’s a pretty sweet ride!
Note the heads up display. Pretty cool!
