    Do you have a 3G or WiFi iPad? Only 3G iPads have GPS, WiFi iPads 'try' to determine their position through a database of WiFi hotspots, but it's approximate and, in rural areas, can be non-existent.

    You can get a GPS add-on for your iPad if it's WiFi, though it's unlikely to be helpful for the 'Find My Pad' application.

    The wifi only version uses it's ip address to determine location. Which can usually be way off. :)
