i've got new ipad 3

question about tracking my location or ipad

Without having any apps open for tracking or gps ..
mayby in background without knowing ..
or when i set off the setting for place location ..

How anyone can track me , or what they need to know my position ;
i allways have to give an "ok" confirmation to something like app before this could be possible (no ?)

or can anyone search me by 3g or Gps connection or phonenumber of the microchip card..

the app search my ipad i have , but when place location is of this does not work i guess.

but i guess , normally , nobody can find my location without me knowing it ? (if not) what can i do ,to know when this happens ?

There are very few apps that other people could use to track your location, and none that could be used without your consent.

With the introduction of iOS 6, apps that are going to access your private data require your permission to access this data, such as Facebook.

If you do not want to be tracked, you have nothing to worry about. If you do want to be tracked, you could use the "Find My IPad" function, but the person doing the tracking would have to share your AppleID on their device. So this would probably be limited to your spouse.

If I haven't read your question properly, feel free to let me know, so I can give you the info you need.
