    Hello:

    I have joined this forum site to get the most out of my iPad. I am also a pilot and use it for aviation with various apps, primarily Foreflight. I also have been using it more and more for business, as I am self employed. Nice to now leave my laptop behind...

    I had one question to post as it pertains to the internal built in gps. The software I use needs (or is much more consistent) with a product called elf gps. This plugs in to the 30 pin adapter and seeks information directly from the satellite rather than from towers. The questions is is there a way to disable the internal gps or have the external supersede the internal gps?

    I look forward to learning new ways to use the iPad. Thanks,

    Gonzalo

    I suppose you could try turning off Location services in Settings. Better yet, just turn it off for the specific app that uses the elf gps. Not sure if that will work, but it's worth a try.

    Good to hear from you. You’ll find a whole bunch of iPad enthusiasts in this Forum who are only too willing to help other iPad owners and to hear of their experiences. Don’t be afraid to post any questions you may have or use the ‘Search’ button near the top of the Forum web page. I usually find I discover one new interesting and useful piece of information about my iPad every day - and often not even what I was looking for!!

    Hope to hear from you soon with your thoughts about the iPad.

    Have fun and enjoy your iPad
