    My IPAD with 3G has GPS and was working well.
    Suddenly ceased to 'read' the
    satellites, located with Wifi but no GPS, someone can help me solve the problem?

    I'm not quite sure what you mean when you say: ... "ceased to 'read' the satellites, located with Wifi but no GPS"

    Do you have an app that actually shows what satellites have been detected? Or do you mean that the GPS function simply isn't working?

    I'd try rebooting the iPad to see if the GPS resets itself.. Hold the power button down for about 5 seconds and then slide the 'power off' button that appears. That will shut things down.. Then restart by holding the power button down for a few seconds.

    If that doesn't work you might have a hardware problem....

    If that doesn't work try a reset. Hold down the HOME, bottom button, and the SLEEP, top button, for about 10 seconds until the Apple icon appears. Allow it to reboot, it may take a few minutes, don't panic like I did, wait for it to reboot.

    Good Luck

    Make sure WIFI is on. Go outside to a place with a clear view of the southern sky with no trees or buildings blocking your view of the sky, Turn it on and wait at least 5min. Sometimes they get a little lost and need to be able to find as many Sat as possible to reorient themselves. If that doesn't work try another reset and try again. If it still doesn't work, I will have to say you have a hardware problem. Take it to the Apple store for an exchange.

    Good Luck
