    Hi

    Very excited!!!!

    My 64GB iPad 3 shipped today. Woo Hoo!!!

    It's my first ipad. I have a 3GS iphone and a 13" Macbook, an airport extreme and a 15" MBP.

    I'm more excited by the iPad than anything since my first iPhone.

    One thing I'm not happy about is that the launch event showed location-based features but didn't mention that only the 4G version has a GPS.

    I didn't realise, and as I have the iPhone for tethering I bought a wi-fi model.

    Can anyone confirm that tethering does allow GPS data to flow to the iPad?

    Cheers!

    Ken.

    Semel,

    without a GPS, apps like TomTom don't work. That is what I'm complaining about.

    Hi and welcome to the Forum!

    I don't think you can do this, it's one thing to tether to an iPhone to access a wifi hotspot but streaming GPS data to an iPad is another and I can't help you here. Only a 3G or 4G ipad will deliver true GPS capability and you don't even need the sim activated to allow this to function. A wifi iPad can have some success at GPS depending on tower coverage in the area. You could always go back and get a replacement, they have a 14 day window in which you can do this.
