Is it true you can't make notes? I know pdf format supports some form of 
annotation, and I thought I read that at least some hand held devices allow it, 
although you can't necessarily transfer notes to another device, which makes 
them of limited value.

I'd prefer paper copies, but the idea of being able to have several field 
guides in a package lighter than the lightest of them is very attractive.

I got badly bogged in sand in Little Desert a few months ago, my first 
experience of that. The jack just sank into the sand. I'm sure I could have 
found something else to put under it somewhere in the car, but Slater was handy 
and did a good job. An iPad might work just as well, but I doubt it would be as 
usable afterwards.
