    Is this a 3G iPad or a WiFi iPad? Only the 3G iPad has GPS. A WiFi iPad 'tries' to locate itself by accessing a list of WiFi hotspots held by Apple but, if your iPad is not near a registered hotspot, it can't be located.

    Which app are you using - is this the iPad's native Maps app? Might be worth trying to completely quit the app in the multi-task bar. This often fixes problems...
