Russ from http://pathlesspedaled.com tours with an iPad Mini. He has a review of an app called Maplets in the Gear section of their blog.
I think he uses a Bluetooth keyboard that acts as a stand for the iPad, so it feels like a laptop when typing.

I know Russ posts in bikeforums so he may wander in here with a few nuggets of wisdom.

I was out all last week and took along my iPad. It was about 2 of the 25 pounds of gear and food I was carrying, but I felt it was well worth it. Full writeup here.

I did a tour a month or so ago and used your app en-route. I was so pleased with your work. I used the app for about 10 days of riding and it worked great. It was especially nice to be able to record waypoints and comments while working without cell coverage or other internet access. Then TrackMyTour uploads the info later. I queued up some waypoints this way when it was convenient for me to use the app. Later, when I have an internet connection I'm probably riding the bike and don't want to mess around with the phone. It's just a couple button presses in the app and you upload however many waypoints you've recorded with their associated pictures geo located on the map.

Nice.

Thanks so much! I love hearing people's success stories with the app.
