    Is it possible to access the iPad GPS with the browser? I'm going to make a website that is only going to be used by iPads, and I'm going to have to know the users position updated in realtime. So I'm wondering if anybody knows whether I'll have to make an app to read the site and send GPS location, or if I can just use the built-in browser.

    Thanks in advance for any help,
    Zeot

    Mostly because I'm not very familiar with iPad development, but also because it will be moderated on a computer. Only the user part will be on iPad only.
