will allow you to carry and operate an i-pad on your boat, if you want to. I've already got my waterproof camera to keep me busy.

great responses. i personally put mine in airplane [kayak?] mode and throw it in my drybag, but i imagine the ocean and areas with marine traffic this stuff could be handy.

lifeproof makes a case that is waterproof, ice, dust, and other proofs that are nice for the iphones. little pricey but for the days your unsure of the storm very nice to have. your able to operate all functions on the phone as well.

Motion X is a gps app similar to Runkeeper. Gives your speed, distance and maps your route. It also has a cool Wikipedia function that pulls up wikipedia articles on things/places you happen to be near!
