    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. :)

    Did you turn the location feature on in the account settings?
    On the iPad.

    Thanks and yes I did, however "Find my iPhone" is not listed as one of the programs in the attached list of apps that use this feature.

    Thanks for sticking it out with me. I do have that portion on as well. Her is what it says when i select the device during the search.

    A red dot means it’s offline (turned off or not connected to a data network, such as EDGE, 3G, or Wi-Fi)

    The Wifi is on and working fine so I'm stumped here.

    Resolved.... Need 3G or it just looks for an Internet location close to where you last were. Will just have to try not to lose it. Think I will chain it to an elephant :)
