    Hi all.
    I am an italian Apple fun.
    I had the luck to buy an iPad in the US and now a can't stop playing with it.
    I have jailbroken it (did teh same with my iPhone) and installed ROQYBT.
    The version of ROQY is 1.1, it fully works, bonds to my GPS antenna and shoot out the coordinates ok.
    I have tested it with the following:
    1-iPad maps app - works perfectly
    2-Google maps app - works perfectly
    3-Navigon - can fix but freeze when I start a route guidance
    4-nDrive - do not fix, do not "feel" GPS coordinates coming in from ROQY
    5-iGO - can do everything but keeps "getting and loosing" the GPS with an effect quite annoying.

    Would be happy to share my experience with you guys.

    Regards.

    Antonio

    Big Thanks Antonio!!
    I have the Wifi Ipad, no Gps inside :-(
    I am planning to buy the roqybt IF it works with my Tomtom application, it would be great!!
    There is virtualy NO support on the website of the maker of Roqy.

    Dear friends......look like we are out of luck....TomTom cannot collect teh GPS data from Roqy. At the time being the only apps that really work are Maps and Google maps.
    I will write to the developer of Roqy and try to urge him on starting the investigation.
    My dream is.....iPhone 3GS with a GPS server app and iPad with a GPS Client app, connected via wifi. What do you think about it?
    Regards and happy hacking.

    Arghhh!!
    Let's ask Roqy.
    But, using the Iphone as a gps server, seems a bad idea for me, the gps reception of a 3GS is not so good (i even use a re-radiating antenna).
    So for me, best solution would be, a external GPS receiver, connected thrue bleutooth to my Ipad.
    Lets hack on!!

    Dear friends....finally we have an app working. I have just test with a full success SYGIC AURA (Italy). It is 100% operational.
    My configuration is:
    iPad 32GB WIFI only
    ROQYBT 1.10
    Sygic Aura 1.15

    When you can lay your hands on the US version buy it in confidence and also download and buy ROQY. You will be fully set.
    Regards.

    Hi Rudy. I use it more as a trip planner when I am on the go. I do not actually use it s a turn-by-turn navigation system. It is such a pleasure to be able to jump from the map to safari to gather info to Google maps and so forth. I do not know if I can explain it in english:). There is a tool out to integrate it in the car dash. I have seen it on internet. Is a company that makes iPhone accessories. I can try to look back for it if you want to have a look.

    I am in the process of testing BTstack GPS.
    Software installed, waiting for my BT device (will be here in some minutes)
    I have Tomtom, Navigon, Sygic, all official versions that i bought for my Iphone.
    I keep you posted!!

    By the way, did you know that Sygic also uses the Wifi to determe your position? I just tested it. Could be enough for basic planning indoors.

    update 1:

    program works, i use the next GPS receiver:

    Review: Freedom Keychain GPS | WMExperts

    Starting the BTstack gps prog is simple, it finds the device, and you give the code , the rest is automaticly. Programs opens and displays a basic map with you location and the type of fix (2D 3D...)
    the you close the program, and when closed, the icon stays "on" to serv other programs

    Tomtom does not find the signal
    Navigon displays "something" but does not work correctly.
    Sygic seems to work good (picks up the signal right away)
    Later i will take it out for a drive, and keep you informed.


    The ipad Maps (kaarten in Flemisch) also works.

    Antonio, seems that Sygic is the only one who picks up the signal. (also with the other program BTstack GPS 5$ program)
    But at least there is some evolution.

    Update 2:

    Did a little trip,
    First, no TomTom And no navigon
    And sygic also Doesn't work nicely, i have to disable wifi to get a "moving fix", And even then, position is to much behind.
    No speed indicator also.
    Ad the fact, that the device is huge in the car, And the screen is very glossy!
