Using non-GPS ipads
  • We have our iPads getting their connection from an in-motion vehicle router which turns an air card into a vehicle wifi.  This means we do not have an onboard GPS unit in our iPads.  Has anyone experimented with either the connected GPS dongles or the bluetooth modules for the iPad? 
  • I have a Dual XGPS (about $80 on Amazon), and it works well with the Active911 app and a non-wifi iPad.

    The only "gotcha" that I've seen so far is that you would need to leave it plugged in and powered on full time, or else you would have to fuss with it every time you want to use the GPS features.
