Sounds like we are in a similar boat, I look forward to what you learn.

I thought the same thing which is why I bought the iTouch to use for a while.
Then, I upgraded to the phone and realized how much that internet connection was worth in expanding what I can do.

An iPad is probably a bit larger than what I'd want to carry or whip out of a pocket when doing a calculation but that's just me.

Re: Time for a new cell phone.

We already had the IPad so I can learn on it.I just started running Shooter and like the program.My son tells me I will still have issues seeing it in bright sunlight;but it is great setting here at the table.Where I elk hunt there is no cell service;so internet connection is a non issue.I am really not good with cell phones and just learned how to send a picture.Have never sent a text!With practice maybe I'll work my way up to an IPhone.

So what happens when you want to use the auto atmoshpiric input mode on the shooter program and there is no internet connection. Using the iPhone I might add.
