    I just installed this app and it looks very poor on my iPad Air. It looks like the image is scaled up to fit the iPad screen and even then it does not fill it completely. Anybody got it to work properly?

    It looks fine on my Galaxy S2 and my Tab 3. It also looks very nice on my son's 5S.

    It's an iPhone app. It's not optimized for the iPad. So what you are getting is graphics for the iphone blown up 2x. If you look carefully on the lower right corner, you should see a little circle with 1x in it. Tap that, and the app will shrink so it is the same size as on an iPhone. Now you have sharp graphics but tiny picture.

    Can anyone confirm that you actually need to download the North America map file rather then the lower 49 states map to get all of the optional features to work? I downloaded the lower 49 states map to save space on my iPhone 4S since I don't need to extra areas to na map file has. None of the extra features worked except traffic. Any ideas?

    You can use lower 49 states file. It's actually a great program

    I guess they're counting DC as a state. Makes it seem like you get more for your money.
