Just a 4 hour trip by car. I was not driving. I was in the passenger seat navigating with the iPad GPS.
The iPad turned out to be an enormous asset for traveling. The GPS was great but the GPS combined with internet access was tremendous.
Very nice for checking on times when various businesses opened, which hotels had wi-fi and the million other things you want to know while travelling.
And when you shut yourself up in the hotel at night it becomes an entertainment center. Read your book, magazine, rent a movie, listen to music etc.
It was an excellent.
