This may be more a hardware question, but how is everyone viewing MM on their PDAs outside in sunshine?

I'm using a HTC 3600 and the screen can't be read outside on a bright sunny day (the type of day I like to go out walking! Rolling Eyes ) and MM becomes impossible.

A couple of other guys with different PDA's say the same thing.

So is there a particular PDA that can be actually used to view MM when outside?

I've used it OK with my DELL AXIM x51V. This has one of the 'transflective' LCD screens that is designed to work with external light. I turn the backlight off. It's not brilliant - but it is useable. I find that I do get a problem with reflections off the screen protector though, so I have to ensure the sun isn't directly behind! Not usually a problem in UK during summer though Laughing
