iPad Specific Version
Make an edition of TNP for the iPad. It should work in full screen mode and support devices that do not have a built in GPS. (I know that the iPhone TNP app works on GPS-enabled iPads.)

I'm still waiting for iPad version. I gave it a good try for a while, but didn't like it. I went back to MotionX GPS HD.....far superior.

You guys are incredible.Thank you for all you do! From support to products, everyone is friendly and helpful. TNP is how a company should be run. Good job guys. I've been on board from close to the beginning and have loved watching you grow.
With the most recent release of TNP Mobile, we have removed the restriction on devices. As such, you can now use recent versions of the iPod touch and WIFI iPads in conjunction with an external GPS device. I have personally tested the Bad Elf 30 pin device and their Bluetooth device with the TNP mobile. They both perform very well and as such it is a personal preference. My suggestion is to consider the Bluetooth device it will not use the battery from your device.

the iphone version on an ipad is not useable due to the poor quality of the map images when expanded to full screen.
you could take some lessons from gispro app. we would much rather use terrain navigator but functionality is not up to our standards. when will an ipad full version be available. seems like such a waist of resources to have developed the iphone first. the iphone could have been a peripheral device for markers and track imports, but not a useable platform for the program. ive used terrain navigator since the 1990's.
We have tested with the Bad Elf device and will include support for iPod touch and iPads (in compatibility mode) in the next release.
App just for iPad would be nice, I have iPad one with 3G and we use it in the field often, also if you could set a point on the map and navigate to it that would be nice as well
We have noticed in the past that the use of external GPS on devices without GPS built in (ipod touch & ipad without 3G) can be a bit temperamental. We are actually acquiring a few of these devices to determine viability and stability with our apps. Since we have made the GPS sleeve versions work in the past, I suspect this should not be too much of an issue. Stay tuned and we will report progress back after some testing.
My Ipad is wifi only, but I have an external GPS (Bad Elf) that works well on it, but the current program doesn't recognize it. The device also works on my Ipod Touch, both through the 30 pin plug.
