    For some reason my Kindle doesn't sync well (to the last page read) with my iPad. It did when I first got the Kindle. It seemed to happen after I upgraded my Kindle to the newer version (not DX) but I am not positive about that part. Any Ideas?

    I haven't had a problem, but will admit to not syncing very often--i do most of my reading on the kindle, and rarely on the ipad. I'll try this weekend and see if there's an issue.

    I have had no problems when I synch the Kindle first and iPad second then Kindle again. I do that anyway when I am reading the saem book on both. That happens to me often because I use the iPad at night and the Kindle in daytime. The problems have come when I did not remember to resynch both. A slight hassle, but logical when you think about it. of course there is no need to do that if you've only been using one of the devices since your last synch.

    Make sure that the devices are both connected to the internet when you are reading. Is it a wifi only Kindle or do you have cellular capabilities? It might not have a signal.

    Also from the Amazon help page, might want to check your settings.
