Well after some research I will not be adding the Pioneer plug in GPS as at this stage you can't load it with Off road maps.. so after playing with a VMS 500S which was great but I found the maps to small so after some more research I purchased an iPad 3G which has an inbuilt GPS & VMS have released an app I've gone that way which from 1st use is fantastic just under 10" screen & the app, VMS, is fantastic so when the Ram mount has turned up I'll Fit & take a few pics, but very happy with screen size & makes for easy map reading.

Below is a 1:25,000 map down loaded to iPad from Mud Maps VMS tell me version 3.x is on the way with even better features...

Did your RAM mount arrive yet? It took 2 weeks to get mine and I am very disappointed.
The mount itself that holds the ipad is crap! I have ipad 2 and its the same mount for both ipad 1 and 2??? It sits in ok but moves around heaps if you shake the mount. Useless off road as it will rattle its brains out and scratch and damage the ipad.
The only thing I can see is to add some sort of silicon case so it fits more snug but according to their website http://www.ram-mount.com this is a different holder.
Does anyone else have any experience with this?

richo The mount just showed up today the iPad is firm as being 1st Generation but I noted that it came with 2 rubber bumpers that stick on with directions for placement if you have an ipad 2 :

If you didn't get it's an easy fix..

Yes! :thumb: I haven't bothered fitting a sim card.. the GPS is only available with the 3G model, works exactly as any other GPS.. I believe it's 24 Channel.
