You can count me in as a customer for the iPhone app. My wish list for the app:

1. A 3D feature would be nice (if possible?).
2. iPod (music) control should be available while on GPS mode
3. App w/ ability to speak
4. Scroll-wheel for points & database
5. Mac OS Map Manager that will allow creation of routes

Yes, I too am looking forward to an iPhone version of Pathaway after years of hiking, kayaking, and backcountry driving using Pathaway 4 on my Tx!

Features I would most like to see:

a. ability to transfer existing databases from my Palm Tx to my iPhone;

b. ability to create my own self-calibrated maps from scans, image file downloads, etc as is currently possible using Pathaway 4

I can only confirm what Arturus is mentioning. I am also already now using similar APPs like B.iCycle which has at least some of the functionality of Pathaway. Just now a Fugawi APP was published which has Topo Maps all of Germany included. But they want to sell those maps together with the APP and I already have them.
But all those APPs are lacking the ability to load own calibrated maps which is really a major advantage for Pathaway.
So please please give at least some information on the date of availability of the iPhone version

I finally migrated from my old Palm-based Garmin iQue to an iPod Touch, and the app I miss the most is PathAway. No other application lets me create my own calibrated topo, geologic, and trail maps.

If I can use my iTouch along with the Dual GPS cradle (http://gpscradle.dualav.com/) and can migrate over my existiing maps, I will definitely be a customer!

A nice feature would be seamless maps.

The only reason why I have not moved myself to iPhone is Pathaway. Hope, there will be iPhone version soon.

Scott - thanks so much for getting Pathaway 5 for iPhone into the app store before year-end as you promised. I just installed it and have been playing around with it (I've used Pathaway 4 for years on my Palm T3 and Tx). My first impressions are mainly good. I find the dashboard style menus a bit confusing, but I'm starting to figure out where things are. I wouldn't call it intuitive but it works. The various symbols are a little rough around the edges but that is something you can refine down the road. I gave it a 4 out of 5 stars in an app review but would have given it a 5 out of 5 if the ability to load custom maps had been included. Please, please add this functionality. I've got a huge collection of custom maps I've calibrated for my Palm Pathaway 4 (including digital versions of the Mussio Backroad maps for western Canada) which I would love to use on my iPhone. Without this feature you may have trouble standing out from the iPhone GPS app pack. I've been using Gaia GPS and it is pretty good as well - but I'll switch in a minute if you make custom maps work on Pathaway 5 iPhone!
