I have always had the same concern re: USB but there may be other ways Garmin can move data between iOS devices and Garmin GPS's. From my forum question to the BaseCamp Team, it appears as though BaseCamp Mobile will only be iOS to start.

From what I know so far, it appears as though this app will have very little in common with BaseCamp other than in name. If that is the case, I think Garmin will have made almost as big a mistake as they did making the nuvifone.

This simply isn't true. Apple provides various API's to communicate with other devices, over USB or Bluetooth or WiFi.

For example, my GPS app can connect with a bluetooth heart rate monitor and attach my heart rate to my GPX file (handy feature on the bicycle), and there are USB devices that let you interface with a car's ODB-II diagnostics port. For example:

Garmin can certainly integrate their GPS devices with an iPad. Some of their competitors have already done so (though none that I've seen so far do a good job).

Which iOS app is that that interfaces with a USB OBD-II device?
