    This German website appears to have gotten an early entrance into the IFA, and one of the new things Tomtom has on display is its App 1.9, including a version specifically tailored for the iPad.

    I'd expect a formal announcement from Tomtom in a day or two, once the IFA officially launches.

    I understand the HD traffic for the iPhone. Not sure I understand the communication mechanism for iPad, though.
