Reference the problems with IOS and the GNS1000 I may have an idea as to why it is not working properly.
I just purchased a GNS1000 and regardless of what I tried I could only very randomly get it to work. I tested it on 2 x IPAD2s and some Iphones of all types 3GS, 4 and 5. Nothing seemed to work - Very frustrating!
Then I accidently did the following on my Iphone 3GS (IOS6) ......
1. Turned on the GNS 1000
2. Paired the Iphone to the GNS1000
(Then here was the trick)
3. Opened the Compass App (that comes with the Iphone). The Iphone now started to receive and display GNS1000 data in the Compass App.
4. Now I opened the navigation App I wanted to use (in my case Co-Pilot vehicle GPS App)
HEY PRESTO! Everything works like a charm!!!!!!
I think what is happening is the GNS1000 is working fine and also the device is pairing properly with the Iphone. It seems that the Compass App is the conduit for the GNS1000 GPS data to talk to then other Apps.
This is a bit problematic on an IPAD2 as it has no generic Compass App but might provide a starting point for more troubleshooting.
Hope this helps
