I know the info states this app will work with iPad 3rd gen. I was hoping to use an 'old school' iPad 2 - any reason why this may not be suitable?

Unfortunately, iPad 3rd gen was the first version to support Bluetooth Low Energy which is required to connect to the Bump Controller.
Technically, you could upload history to your BT/LE-enabled smartphone (or any other device) and sync it to DropBox for viewing on the iPad 2nd gen, but we can't guarantee support/performance. If you already purchased the app for another Apple device, then there's no cost in trying to see how it works on other older Apple hardware, but we won't be putting resources on fixing bugs that are specific to older hardware.

What device/os are you attempting to connect with ?
Do you see any popups on the Bump Controller about "Bluetooth connecting" ?

By "won't connect" do you mean you see it in the list when you Scan, but aren't able to connect ? .... or it doesn't show up at all ??

I'm going to test this myself and let you know.
I assume you're running latest firmware on both Bump and Powerlab ?

Thanks Kelly,
I was kinda hoping that the 2nd gen would work - bugger.
Oh well, I do have an android tablet that will work so I guess I'll pay for the android app as well.

Update - we found a bug 1.16 which could potentially corrupt BumpTags when using the New BumpTag wizard from the iOS app, so 1.16 was held and now 4.02 (with the fix) has been submitted to Apple for release. It should post to public in the next day or two.

// Version 4.02
// BUGFIX: New BumpTag wizard sometimes fails to write tag
//
// Version 4.01
// FEATURE: Version number synced-up with latest Android "universal" app version
// FEATURE: Cycle graph export to CSV (to DropBox /export directory)
