    Good day, today I did this test... and it is fun.

    Using the Ipad 2 as GPS and it did show your move instantly.

    I've used GPS on iPad starting with iPad 1's debut, but I find it less useful than a dedicated GPS in most instances. I've been using a Garmin for years and just bought a replacement.

    Kind of the point of a GPS . . . .. Show where you are:D

    GPS functions were the number 1 reason I bought a Ipad. I use it when flying, I'm a pilot. I also use it when I off road with my jeep.

    Thank you, Kaykaykay.

    Actually I seldom need GPS, but sometimes I need the map to show me the examination site. ^_^

    Thank you, Rudinater, (or should I call you Captain?),

    Just wonder, you can use the Ipad 2 during flying?

    For driving directions, I prefer my dedicated Garmin than my iPad.

    Thank you, Stefx.

    Actually, I don't know much about GPS, because I seldom use it.

    I am just wondering what is the different between Ipad 2 with other GPS? Anyone?

    Buy a Garmin, it keeps me employed :) if you don't have 3G you can try the bad elf gps receiver, check it out on amazon, it has some pretty good reviews but it's a bit pricey at 99.99

    This is why I bought the 3g iPad2. What app do you use when you don't have cell coverage? I'd love to find a good one that lets you store google satellite images. MotionX GPS lets you store topo maps, but I'd love to have satellite views for when I get lost in Moab...
