I am preparing here for switching my former SOTA paper log to tablet logging with VK port-a-log. The software has been tested, discussed and recommended in our association. I want to give it a try.
Being in the Apple world for mobile devices, this decision requires to buy a reasonably featured (and priced) 7" Android tablet. This tablet will used only and solely for SOTA logging. Do you have any strong recommendation for such a tablet that satisfies yourself for logging SOTA contacts?
My thoughts so far:
- Around 250-300 g weight, around EUR 100-150 cost.
- No special need for being water resistant, I am not the man for activating in rain and snow storms.
- Clearly legible screen even in sunshine and/or with sunglasses (this will probably make difficult to buy the cheapest one).
- Not necessarily the newest one on the market, but not outdated - to be able to update it and use it for some years.
- Feedbacks desired from a Swiss, German or European Market perspective and availability.
- Characteristics/features that have been proven to be useful in your SOTA summit operating expericence.
Thanks in advance for your estimated support or advice.
