Hi,

Stumbled upon this topic and since I want to change from gps to tablet I have some more questions.

How is use of the tab 2 in direct sunlight? Did someone put on a semi matt or matt screenprotector?

How does is perform in winter at low temperatures?


Are there some more pic’s or video from the Tab 2 mounted and/or used for navigation?

Thanks!
Gilbert
Here's a video. Sun light is not a big issue as in glare. However, smartphones and tablets can overheat and black out. When riding in 27C weather and taking a break the screen can black out. As soon as you start riding the wind will cool it.

Thanks, ordering one now and will take it with me to Morocco in a few weeks. Curious how it will perform.

Just make sure you bring extra usb-c cables. I had two incidents where the usb-c plug going into the tablet bent or broke. I do use the tablet vertical instead of horizontal with the usb on the bottom. Never understood why everyone goes horizontal? I want to see what is ahead of me and not on the side so much :-)
