iPad, want it or leave it
I got the 3g iPad to use in my motor home when I am on the road. I wanted it to do 3 tasks: -GPS navigator, -Internet when on the road, & -backup camera. The map app. in the iPad sucks, hopefully if I purchase TomTom app I will have a good GPS navigator. As for internet on the road #$%& the only provider where I am is “rogers”, I had planed to go to Nigra falls through the U.S. next summer and “rogers” plans has no roaming. As for the back-up camera, it looks like I need a router installed in my motor home so that the iPad will provide a view of what the camera sees.
Being an older person I am not into music. I find that “iTunes” is a big pain-in-the-but to use. Attention “APPLE” there is more to life than “iTunes”, a user friendly syncing program would be appreciated (it’s a real turn off when the first thing requested is my credit card #).
my thanks for the replies
- I will check out motionX. I was sort of leaning towards TomTom because I have a TomTom navigator: the maps seem up to date, I can get points of interest that show rv parks, and I was hoping the iPad app can advise the current traffic situation the same as the gps navigator. Do you know if motionX can do the same?
- I got a foscam F189009w wireless/wired camera and have been trying it out with foscam's app. I screwed up in that the camera has only a 22 degree viewing angle, great for watching what the neighbors across the street are doing in their house, terrible for a backup camera. Also I will have to install a wi-fi capable router in my motorhome to use it. I have been thinking of getting a foscam F18909W which has a view angle 67 degrees. If I have the iPad setup as a gps navigator a couple of tap will give a 9" view for backing.
- AT& T solves the 3G connection. Thanks.
