I self have also a N800 and has used it during cross country flights
in a glider several times in this year and noticed the following things:
a) During flight you should switch off the automatic connection search
in the connection tool and also all automatic update features in every
program. All these things will block the whole device for a longer
time and will annoy you with pop up dialogs.
b) The bluetooth connection between N800-GPS mouse did not work with
every BT GPS mouse. Don't known why but I had only success with a
Nokia BT GPS device. Furthermore seems the BT connection to freeze the
OS from time to time and the N800 will do then an automatic restart of
the whole OS. I had this problem several times on different flights
but could not find out, that the cause is for that.
c) Virtual keyboard support is not available at the moment in cumulus.
That were my causes to say, that a N810 could be the better choice for
you. Perhaps Josua or Eggert can write down his own experience with
his N810 device.
