    I tried to download some GPS apps but all that popped up was this app requires GPS. What does that mean?

    If you have a wifi only iPad, you don't have GPS. You could try MotionX GPS HD. I'm led to believe it works without the GPS chip, but when I turned my GPS off to experiment, it didn't appear to work.

    You don't need any special antenna to use GPS on an iPad, all you need is a WiFi+cellular iPad. The antenna built into the iPad is all you'll need. If you have a WiFi only iPad, a GPS unit that can link with the iPad via Bluetooth will enable you to view the GPS info on the screen of your iPad.

    You're going to need a GPS unit that can connect to your iPad via Bluetooth, as I mentioned in my previous post. The WiFi only iPads do not have built in GPS.

    Hello all just joined. I have the ipad 4 wifi only and have bought a Huawei Mifi on the 3 network and also downloaded the Map + app as this will let me use the ipad as a sat nav in Spain.
