    Hi guys I have a serious prob. My iPad3 (16gb, wifi) CANNOT find my location, be it maps, apps or even google. I've tried everything i know, switching on location services in settings too! I've even rebooted several times. I remember though, about a month after I bought it (August 2012) it was fine. Siri could find my location and all. But now, NO, Siri, maps, whatever can't get my location. I'm desperate for help, so I really appreciate answers, thanks in advance...

    If you do not have the 4G/LTE version you have no GPS functionality and it will never determine where you are located unless you are sitting within reach of a WiFi router the location of which is known to Apple.

    I suspect that you need a GPS faker app. They exist on the android side so I guess they exist in the apple universe

    Just confirmed that they exist. Don't know how well they work as all my I devices have a real GPS radio
