I have an ipad 2 with 64 gb, wifi and 3g with verizon as the carrier. The thing is... I have never activated the 3g data plan and have only used it wirelessly. I used to have it rooted and even though the 3g part of it was not active, any number of gps programs worked fine. I have recently had to go back to factory defaults so the ipad is no longer rooted. Today I noted that the gps software no longer works. In other words it no longer connects and is able to be used in navigation mode.
Why did the gps software work before and not now? What would rooting have to do with whether or not the navigation software connects? Very perplexing.
