Hi All,

I should also add that it is quite easy to mail an annotated PDF via IAnnotate 
so you can open it in another environment.  You can even have a summarised 
version of the comments.

If anyone is interested in knowing how to do this, please contact me

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.
