    I can't find the review I read about this, but it was the deciding factor in me ordering a 3G, because it uses A-GPS, and locates you much more accurately than the Wifi-only model.

    Yes the 3G Model does. I use Co-Pilot with no problem.

    The 3Gs come with a built-in GPS.

    The 3G has satellite GPS, plus uses cell tower GPS to speed the acquisition time, from what I understand.
