    I'm not an IT savvy person an I just got an iPad2 as a birthday gift.
    I'm still exploring it's functions and is very much interested on how to
    use it as GPS while traveling overseas. I tried the Maps apps but it does
    not guide the directions as how dedicated GPS do. Is there anyway or
    software I can buy so I can use my iPad2 to function like dedicated GPS.

    Any information given regarding this is very much appreciated. Thank you.

    Hi and welcome to the Forum!

    Do you have a 3G iPad as this is the only one on which true GPS can be utilized. A free GPS app that is quite good is NavFree. They have individual apps for different countries, I'm not sure if this is going to suit you as I don't know where your travelling. Have a look anyway.
