    Want to use my iPad 3 as a sat nav .. I know the wifi doesn't have any gps built in so I'm going to have to use a Bluetooth external gps unit .. I've tried my old holux Bluetooth gps and the iPad doesn't see it ,
    Can anyone tell me the best one to use (not too expensive) .. I'm in uk

    Thanks for help

    It is Bluetooth. Why would it need to be JB?

    It is pricey, but if you upgraded to the 4G model just to use GPS you'd pay a little more (but have the option for 3g/4G).

    Did you experience any problems after updating to iOS 6? (In case you did update)
    I am looking into getting me one, but I heard of problems with the new OS...
