Getting a stand alone Bluetooth GPS receiver is cheaper that the cell model IPad, more accurate and allows multiple devices to connect to it ( dependent on which model). It also decreases the battery draw on the IPadMake sure it has an internal GPS. At least in the Apple line, this means getting a wifi and cellular model. The GPS chip is on the cell phone chip. The WiFi only models get location data from the wifi network. You do not need a cellular data plan, just have the capability.
