    If your iPad is cellular capable, activating a mobile data account would give you the Internet access you need for Sat Nav. So there's a cost equation to consider. On the other hand if you have a smartphone you could tether to the iPad.
    Your service provider will charge for that, likely $10-$15 per month depending on the plan you have. Less expensive than activating a 2nd account.

    Hope this helps.
