    I got back the Garmin Nuvi 5000 I lent to my son a couple of years ago. It is missing a part to the car power cord, and when I plugged it into my computer, it never got past one screen. The Garmin utilities can't find it, but my third browser was able to send a MapQuest saved map to it. Then I found the MapQuest-276.GPX file and dragged it to my iPad's Motion X app via iTunes. I started the app, and found that it is searching for GPS. Apparently I have the wrong type of iPad. I have to buy another copy of the program to work on my iPhone. But I finally found the .gpx file in tracking - in a very useless form, with straight lines going to my stops. Nothing to guide me on my trip. I must be looking the wrong place. I want to use it the way I used to use the Garmin.

    I even tried plugging in a Bad Elf GPS which I got with my previous, 1st generation iPad.
