- "Imperial" Temperature display in iOS App 
- Minor layout revisions 
- Bring iPad version up to same level as iPhone 
- Remove Model S images 
- Change default image of DEMO car to a Tesla Roadster 
- Change default ovms server to tmc.openvehicles.com

This is quite a large update, with a lot of work (and thanks to) Bennett and Felix, as well as testing from a bunch of testflightapp folks.

I'd like to point out a few important things:

As part of the tidy-up, we've removed the Model S images from the App - so you may have to change the car image for any DEMO cars you have.
Social Group support is included - you can now set a group in the car, and see the location of all cars in that group on the map.
Streaming mode for location, with direction and movement animation is beautiful. Try car RALLY password RALLY for a demo.
We now support MMI/USSD codes. These are like "##107#" and can be used to check cellular balance.
If you car is set to "Miles", the temperatures will now appear in Fahrenheit.

It should appear in the App stores over the next few hours.

Regards, Mark.

P.S. This brings the iOS App up to the level of functionality in the Android App. We now hope to work to unify these two apps a bit more, as well as fix the display scaling issues seen by some users of modern high-resolution Android phones.
