More and more people are using IPad in meetings and presentations, mainly because it is easy to transport to anywhere.
I understand that mindjet is a great tool to share ideas in this occasions, but today it is not practical to show the ideas for more than two persons without transfer ipad images to a external device as data show or a TV, using something as VGA adapter.
In my opinion, this feature will promote mindjet to others companies that are not using or doesn' t know the product yet.

This looks like a hardware question to me, but correct me if I'm wrong.
Many modern beamers and /or projectors have a network connection you can use with wifi or bluetooth.

IPad already has VGA adaptar to conect to an external device.
The problem it works in a different way comparing the use with notebooks or desktops.
The image on the external device screen or projection only appears when specifics applications functions, as slide show, are activated. Otherwise you can see the images only on the iPad screen even you have the adapter connected.
I use some Ipad applications, as SG project and office2HD, that support VGA adapter but unhappily the Mindjet for IPad doesn't.

I'm using Presentation Note to present my powerpoint files directly from the iPad. I connect it with VGA cable or Apple TV if available to a monitor or projector. Presentation Note was a great fit for me since I don't use Keynote, and powerpoint files with other apps didn't look great on the iPad. But, now they're exactly the same as I made them.

Look in the iPad 2 settings for "mirroring"
