    iPad GPS-software

    Hey! Got a quick question for you guys, I just bought myself an iPad 16GB 3G and am interested in using it as a GPS in the veichle from time to time.

    If I've understood everything correct, the 3G-version have a built-in GPS. So the question is, whats the best GPS-software out there today, if you get the question?

    I live in Sweden, so it must have detailed coverage of Europe or Scandinavia..

    I've been using TomTom USA for almost a year on my iPhone. I installed it on my iPad and it works wonderfully. You have to have the 3G version of the iPad because that's the only one that has GPS. The only downside is that it's an iPhone app, so you have to "2X" it to get full screen.

    Hello brahcy, welcome to our forum. I have a 3G iPad and I use the app Motion GPS XD. In the USA, it costs US$2.99. I really like it cause you can download maps while wifi connected and use it to give you an idea of where you are on the map. In addition, it does a great job using the 3G iPad's built in gps. I cannot really tell you it is the best, other forum members recommended it in other postings so I just went with these recommendations. This is the only app I use.

    Since I do not have a wifi only iPad, I cannot verify whether or not you would get gps services with a wifi iPad while tethered to a droid x phone while in the car. I know that you can download MotionGPS HD and still get gps via wifi. How that works, again, I don't know as I don't have your specific configuration. Hopefully someone with something similar to your situation chimes in.

    I believe TomTom supports bluetooth external GPS, but i don't know of anything that works through tethering to a phone with built-in GPS... Sorry.

    Hi/hej

    Without any doubt I recommend navigon 1.7, use it my self, and the map coverage is super great.
    I have them all on my iPad , tom-tom navigon, sygic, gamin and ozi, but navigon is the one to use.
    Navigon have the best user interface as well, and are very easy to navigate in.

    Send me a private message here if u what to know further in this question and will be happy to help u.

    (Eller så hitter du mig på marcusthillman@hotmail.com)

    I agree with iPad Sweden. I have Navigon loaded on mine and it is on par with any GPS appliance as far as the list of featured it has.

    Navigon 1.7 looks pretty sweet, was kinda shocked to see a $60 app cause I'm so use to pay 99 cents or even free! Lol may have to give it a try but only thing is I have a wife only iPad but I tether a lot from my droid x when ever I'm not home....but I guess as long as I have a wifi signal like I would on the road from my phone it would work right? And if I ever got rid of my phone and didn't tether anymore I'd be SOL
