Ron, I don’t carry my iPad when I am using my gps system, I start it at the car and leave it there. If I were to loose my bird (hasn’t happened yet, but it will), I just go back to my car and get the pocketlink and iPad and go get the bird. If I could use a watch, now that is the size of something I want to carry in the field. I bought a holder that will strap to my vest that I saw one of the guys in Europe using to hold the pocketlink so I probably will be using my new iPhone X with it in the field this year. Yep, you read that right, I use Apple products! Why, because I can!
