Just won an IPAD2 wi-fi 16gb. I log anywhere from 1,000 to 2,500 dirt miles a year in both our Rubi and Taco. Here's what I want, the question is how to do it but I don't know jack about IPADS and find them confusing.
1. Mapping: Far prefer National Geographical Topo but I'm open for suggestions. I downloaded NG Topo off the app store but it doesn't seem to go down past 1:100,000 scale.
a. Mapping must be operational without internet connection, for many times due to remoteness I have no signal
b. Mapping must go down to 1:24,000 scale, no exceptions
c. Mapping must have an auto tracker feature
d. Mapping must be able to except the few thousand gpx files that I have for trails in Rocky Mountain Region
2. GPS: I currently have a Handheld Garmin that works fine but I see no way to link it to the IPAD so I'm up for suggestions
a. Preference would be for a bluetooth model if that's possible with a IPAD (I don't have a clue). I like this potential because there should be no cords involved. I hate clutter in the cab
b. I cannot stand Meggelin, I'll never own one again just because their costumer service alone so that brand is out.
3. Accessories: A stand would be nice that I can use in the taco and Rubi, "BUT" the passenger side tumble seat must be functional when it is set up, mine currently is not with the ram system that I have and I emphitcally hate it.
Some sort of protection would be nice too because I'm known to destroy just about anything....to inlcude myself (life flight) lol.
Someboby with the knowledge PLEASE, PLEASE help me, I'm getting frustrated not getting any answers to include from the apple help desk and really feel I could have a killer system but I'm tinkering on selling this and getting a notebook.
