Pretty cool... when you start driving the GPS map is on your ipad (or iphone) live and you see where you are and can touch for waypoints etc etc... cool...

Updated my iPhone app... no games that I have support it though. Would be nice to have something like this with your map on a shooter and free up some screen on the tv.

Only for Apple products?

I've got a Motorola Xoom tablet that runs on Android.


I refuse to buy a flight sim that I have no interest in playing, on the off chance that MAYBE someday they'll make the one I really want to play.

Installed this last night. It's slow as hell on my iphone4, and half the time wouldn't even show the map while driving. The potential is great tho', when more games include this sort of functionality I'll seriously consider investing in better hardware.

Hmmm, this Google Nexus 10 looks nice...
