Just got hold of an Android-powered E-ink reader/"tablet". Very readable in direct sunlight.

Unfortunately the current version of Trekbuddy does not run very well on it. The main problem being that in most of the menus and settings it displays white text on white background for some reason, so it is very hard to test different settings as they are invisible...
This is fixed with the latest dev version (2015-12-01)

In addition it would be nice to have the following options:
- dedicated screen refresh rate setting (1 to say 600 seconds - for relaxed sailing every 15 seconds would be more than enough)
- CMS values averaged to coincide with the screen refresh rate
- dedicated monochrome setting
- more...??

(I see the flying / gliding / paragliding community has done great things with XCSoar on e-ink devices)
