It's certainly a trouble, editing in the sunlight. The tablets we use
(Getac E100's) are pretty good, and the bigger problem is the on-screen
keyboard, which is small and fiddly. Luckily (sort of), the users
already have to use it for data entry, and are currently drawing raster
mud-maps in something a bit like Paint (or whatever it's called; that
crappy MS scribbling thing).
Personally, I think audio mapping is more fun. Get to pretend to be
some sort of intrepid reporter!
