    As has been said before, the WiFi models ONLY work using the WiFi signal/locator.

    It works fairly well. I find the locator using my phone as a WiFi router tends to be less accurate than my home based WiFi signal, but it's not disappointing at all, if you figure what it's doing and how it's doing it.

    I wish it did have its own GPS chip on it, though. The though of being able to use a full GPS program in the car with this would be simply fantastic. You can use a Bluetooth dongle with a JB'd iPad, so at least that's fine

As we neared the coast 3G came back and the maps updated without real change to our actual positioning. After a while i turned 3G off. No difference, our position kept updating to around 20 feet.

    There surely is a GPS onboard the iPad. Test confirmed. Having 3G only aids to keep the maps displaying in sync with position.
    Get MotionX GPS HD and you can download the maps and store them on the ipad. When 3G dies you still have your maps
    Yes agreed. I have it already. But I prefer to have the whole of the screen to display a map though, so I like using the iPad's Maps. And I can't stand to be told where to go. A GPS never cuts it right.
    ( Don't tell my wife but the boat trip was a bore.)
    This was the right time to do a serious test for AIF...

    I have an Ipad 3G and downloaded MotionX but it doesn't work when I turn off the 3G. That seems contrary to what others have said so maybe the problem is me. I downloaded the maps needed for a trip then turned 3G off. It kept telling me I needed to turn it on.

    I confirm that google map need to turn on 3G, because when I travel oversea , I alway need to do that. But when I use GPS software like Papago I don't need, may be these gps software use settelite signal. Not 3 G . Hope some one can confirm.
