    was just about to ask this same question. My boss wants my maps and the reports that feed off them on his Ipad.

    is there a way to do it, an app maybe?

    Ipads are actually becoming pretty popular business tools

    MapPoint is a Windows application and does not run on iPads.

    You would have to send him an image file, it would just be a static map. Either do a screenshot or copy/paste to Word or whatever.

    If you need an interactive map, I think you'd have to export to Bing Maps or something which might be a pain to get it to look right, depends somewhat on your data layers, but probably not an easy undertaking.

    There was a MapPoint Web Service, which was superseded by Bing Maps, but they are designed as separate products, not that easy to move data between the Desktop MapPoint and the web products.
