Default Homeport for iPad and Desktop?

I am interested in getting the Garmin HomePort program and have a question? I see I can download the program from Garmin's site but was wondering is there a separate app for the iPad/iPhone?

Does that mean i have to buy the app for the iOS device and my desktop? ;?

Yes, The iPad app is called BlueChart mobile and it has slightly different functionality than the homeport does.

I understand they are in business to make money but I just bought three Garmin products and looks like upon registering them they would give the homeport download or at least give a 50% discount. jmo

BlueChart rocks, especially when you tie it in with activecaptain. The reason they offer it as stand alone is so they can offer something to the non Garmin public. Its a bonus as a free download for the buyers of the plotters just makes the user interface that much better and easier to manipulate.

How do you get HomePort free? I just bought a plotter.
