NavigX for iPhone was the world's first iPhone app to take a Latitude and Longitude and convert it to an Ordnance Survey Grid Reference. We've now taken everything we've learnt during the evolution of NavigX for iPhone and brought it to the iPad - NavigX for iPad has landed!
Building on the success of the original, NavigX for iPad converts between Latitude/Longitude coordinates and Ordnance Survey Grid References (Great Britain and Ireland), Military Grid Reference System (MGRS), United States National Grid (USNG), Universal Transverse Mercator (UTM) and Global Area Reference System (GARS) coordinates, all via a vastly updated user interface which fully utilises the new capabilities and interfaces of the iPad.
With the larger screen area, NavigX for iPad makes plotting points much easier and all your waypoints can be exported from your iPad and into iTunes to put on your iPhone very easily.
We've always designed NavigX to be a tool to help users out in the hills and NavigX for iPad does just that. We've decided not to include Navigation as the device isn't really pocket-sized but with features like WebTrack in the pipeline it's going to help you get the most out of your days in the hills.
Integration with Google Maps has always been a part of NavigX and you'll find the map is now at the centre of everything in the iPad version. You can even add waypoints to the waypoint directory from a map-based display.
NavigX for iPad 1.0 is available through the App Store for only £2.99. We're aware that it's a little more expensive than the iPhone version but there's much more coming along that the iPad app will do that the iPhone can't. It's still less than the price of a beer for a very capable GPS system, though!
