    Not for use in sunlight

    • Written by from Sausalito

    I bought this case to protect my iPad at the helm of my sailboat while using GPS-based navigational apps.

    However, after about 10 minutes in the case exposed to sunlight, the iPad overheated and went into emergency cool-down mode.

    It was not a particularly hot day - 80F, partly cloudy.

    However, direct sunlight will raise the internal temperature too high in a very short time.

    So, this case is NOT a solution to the problem of keeping your iPad safe at the helm of a boat, or in any other situation where it will get direct sunlight for even relatively short periods of time.

    Too bad, because otherwise I liked the case very much, but back it goes.
