  • Great success with TomTom/Navigon on iPad

    Involvement:General (knows how to use it) - Ownership:more than 1 month

    Pros:

    - Small size.
    - Quick to acquire GPS lock.
    - Bluetooth connects quickly.
    - Bluetooth pairs fine with a jail-broken iPad running iOS4.2.1 and RoqyBT4.
    - Most cost-effective GPS device I could find that works with RoqyBT4.
    - Great price for what it does.

    Cons:

    None that have impacted me. It's done exactly what I want it to.

    OtherThoughts:

    - I have not attempted to use the bundled software as I had no need.
    - I can't comment on battery life as I always use it plugged into a 12V source.

    Bottomline:

    This device has met my requirements just perfectly.
    I bought a Wi-fi only iPad, not expecting to ever need an iPad with GPS. Then I bought a 10m converted bus/motorhome. Doh!
    I have so much dash and window space that it would be a shame to have to use the tiny screen of my iPhone for navigation instead of the huge iPad screen.
    Mounted in a windshield suction mount (sku 44371), and coupled to this GPS via Bluetooth using RoqyBT4, the iPad makes an awesome navigation device.
    My usage procedure:
    - Turn on GPS Receiver.
    - Start RoqyBT4 on iPad (Bluetooth & Location-Services already enabled on iPad).
    - Wait about 10 seconds for RoqyBT4 to acquire link with GPS Receiver.
    - Start TomTom/Navigon/etc..
