E32 is NOT available as of yet for the iPad and iPhone.

I spoke with Omar from Cartografia this morning and he said the launch will be in the near future but it is not yet available. We have multiple license for E32 as the software / maps are only available for a single GPS unit and if you have multiples then you must have a license for each.

No doubt the best maps thus far of the Baja Peninsula.

That's interesting. I received an email 2 days ago from Omar saying they were available. I don't use an iPad so didn't search the iTunes store to confirm.

I loaded Gaia on my iPad for our off road excursions. I loaded the satellite maps and TOP from there.

Tell me more Nick! Are you saying that an I-Pad can be used off road with just a GPS signal? NO contract, or internet, or cell connection?

How about some of the lesser tablets, my needs (and tech skills) are limited. I would love to have a simple, inexpensive tablet that could function as a stand alone GPS.

That is correct! I am co owner of a website that we do trail mapping on here in the states. (www.offroadtrailguide.com) We tested Gaia, Motion X, Trimble, Offline Topo, and a few others. We settled on Gaia for several reasons.

The free version does a lot but the subscription version allows you to layer maps. Say you wanted to overlay a Topo with satellite imagery, all you do is drag and drop. They have a cloud service that backs up all of your trail files and downloaded maps. All you do is download the maps you want ahead of time. I run a first gen wifi only iPad in my rig and use Gaia and a Dual GPS receiver and love it!

Nick, thanks for the details! It looks like I don't need the latest, greatest, I-pad to make it work, so it should be affordable.

There are periods of time that my rig will be topless, so I try to keep the investment in tech at a level that wouldn't break the bank if I have to replace it.

BackCountry Nav Topo Maps GPS

This one works good for android phones.. Have used it on BajaSur trails and allows you to plot your trail waypoints on Google Earth then overlay them to the topo maps on BackCountry...

I also use BackCountry Nav Topo Maps GPS and google earth on an Asus tablet for racing as well as exploring. Additional benefits of a tablet = camera on board, audio for camping, movies etc

Update on E32. Baja GPS for I-pad.


I just downloaded the E32 GPS map App. from Apple to an old I-pod 3 for free. Clicked open and presto. There was the icon at my house.

I use my iPad at home with WiFi to load and share maps, tracks, and routes with my iPhone, but I’m not sure an iPad will work the way you want unless it is also cellular capable, it doesn’t need to be turned on but the guts need to be in there just like a phone.

Pacsur is correct. If you want to have GPS functionality on an iPad when you are off grid, it must be the type that is cellular enabled. (the non cellular-capable iPads are a bit cheaper.) You don't need to put a cell chip in it for the GPS to work. Many Apple geniuses don't know this. We like to use the free maps.me app while boating in the Sea.
