    TomTom has announced that its popular iPhone app has now been fully updated and optimized for iPad. This latest version of the app features a higher resolution for a sharper display, and an enhanced user interface to fit the iPad’s larger screen. The full-screen display now shows both driving view and advanced lane guidance at the same time, with drivers being able to switch to driving view with one touch from anywhere within the app, and access guidance options with just one tap.

    The app also features a new map release complete with updated roads and points of interest, and HD Traffic is now available to download as an in-app purchase. Here are some of the app’s most important features courtesy of TomTom:
    • Access to TomTom HD Traffic – the quickest way through the traffic
    • The latest, most accurate TomTom maps available – with no need for a mobile signal or data plan
    • Correct your map and get others’ changes every day via Map Share
    • Arrival times you can rely on – at all times of day – with IQ Routes[SUP]TM[/SUP]
    • Seamless navigation while calling, thanks to iOS 5 multitasking support
    • Seamless integration with your iPhone contacts, photos, music, email and calendar
    • Homer Simpson, Darth Vader, Yoda, and C3PO navigation voices available as an in-app purchase.
    Click here to download TomTom App for iPhone/iPad for $49.99 (the iPad version is free to download for owners of the iPhone version): App Store - TomTom U.S.A.

    I assume one cannot use the IPad 2 version of TomTom without 3G? GPS doesn't work in WIFI only model?

    The Dual XGPS150 will get you around that limitation, there are others. I wonder how TomTom compares to Navigon which works beautifully on the iPad.

    I frequently use my iPad with Navigon or TomTom as a GPS in my car.

    I purchased a RamMount windshield kit from MountGuys. It came with a single suction cup so I purchased a dual suction cup part directly from RamMount. The kit has an arm that allows the iPad holder to be lower than the windshield so it's very visible but out of the way.

    Not a cheap solution, especially having replaced the single with the dual suction cups, but very solid. I also purchased a dual USB cigar lighter adapter that has 2 2.1 USB outlets to keep both my iPad running TomTom and my iPhone charging the whole time. Without that TomTom would drain the iPad's battery in no time.
