    even I'm outside in a clear weather, my ipad 2 respects closest cellular antennas rather than to connect the gps sattelites. which gives big figures of accuracy.

    how can I make my ipad 2 connect the satelites only? is there any way to see the satellite status? how many satellite found?? how many connected? connection quality etc..

    What iPad2 do you have? The only iPads with GPS are the 3G models. WiFi-only iPads do not have GPS.

    If you have a GPS model, then make sure you have 'Location Services' enabled in the 'Settings' menu.

    I have a 3g model. I'm sure that LS is enabled.

    It would be worth checking that 'Settings', 'General', 'Location Services' - > 'On and, in Location Services, whatever app you're trying to use with GPS has its location service permission enabled.
