Just got back from Apple store. Check out LifeProof cases. Super durable and waterproof. They make an accessory that has an amps mount for the car that the case can attach to. Very nice design but a little bulky.

I'm interested in getting an iPad mini (non 3G) and a BT GPS module for navigation. Does anyone have this configuration and how do you like it so far? What Apps do you use for navigation?

Is it too much to ask for both? I suppose I could have one app for marine maps and one app for land maps. Now there's an idea! Which one is the best BT GPS module for the iPad? The Garmin GLO? Does it need/come with an antenna?

I am happy with the garmin glo. It works via blue tooth. I just download the needed maps prior to a trip. I have the Navigon and Gaia apps on the iPad.

So Im pretty much the worst Asian ever;

So is the Glo like a GPS receiver and the iPad a giant screen and hard drive?

In areas with spotty signals, you can upload maps to Glo or the iPad?

Does the Glo have its own OS or do you download a Navigation program?

I hate to admit it, but my RTOs and signal boys handled all my communications needs mounted and dismounted....

The garmin glo is a receiver of GPS signal that transmits the signal via blue tooth to the iPad or your laptop.

You install the app on the iPad and they place nice together. You need to upload your maps prior to travel unless your iPad has data service.

In my case I use my home wifi to load the maps prior to travel because I do not pay Verizon for a data package. The maps eat up a lot of space so try to download the states or areas you need. For roads I use the Navigon for the trails I use the Gaia app.
