The BadElf stuff looks cool. I wonder how much better this GPS equipment is over the apple stuff built in on the 3/4 g stuff.
Man is there a bunch of aps for gps programs. Real cool to see it embraced.

"Square"

for me is the best. Allows me to take credit cards at the concession stand and for my home remodeling.

Here is the one I use: http://topomapsapp.com/ipad.html

I haven't used any other topo apps, but it seems to work pretty well.

I thought I'd bring this up again...

Got another iPad last night that will be a non-family dedicated unit. I hope to make it into a work/play platform. Mine is gonna get tossed around a bit so I wanted to see if you guys had any recommendations...

3 New Questions:
1. I am looking at cases right now, the accessories are overwhelming. Has anyone used one of the keyboard/case things... basically a hardshell for the screen that when opened has a stand and keyboard on the underside? I may just go for some of those clear skins and toss it into a pelican case made for the iPad2. Thoughts? For work, I will be taking this thing in and out of its case a dozen times a day if I use a hard case to transport in my backpack.

2. Screen protectors? Anyone have one that works well and doesn't cloud up the resolution? Zagg? Thinking of the iCarbons back panel thingy for looks and scratch protection.

3. GPS Mounts again... trying to figure out something that will work well in all our cars, but it looks like hard mounting is the only real option. If that is the case then something for the 40 would be my first priority.

Thanks for the map stuff, it is super cool once you learn how to play with it.

I think this is your speed

I'm not sure why you would want to make a tablet a laptop with a keyboard but to each their own.

I have the Brookstone built in keyboard case. I bought it before I researched but it does have good reviews. The battery life on the keyboard is really long.

I wanted a case like this after I dropped my last Ipad2.

Also in case some are not aware, the old Apple care was 79.00 with no drop coverage, other than yo can replace your broken Ipad for $250.00. The new Apple care is 99.00 and I believe includes 2 drop replacements.

Also I have the RAM mount for the car. Works pretty well, the bar wobbles a bit but you can usually figure out how to secure it. I like the bar to the seat mount bolt because I did not have to drill into the dash.

I almost got one of these for the kids but the reviews were kind of mixed..
