No affiliation here. Just happened to receive an email notification from Amazon this morning regarding GPS units designed to operate with the iPad/iPad 2. Thought it might be of interest to others with wifi only iPads looking for GPS functionality.

Dual Electronics XGPS150 ($89.95). Bluetooth. Very good reviews with iPad.

Bad Elf GPS Receiver for iPod touch, iPhone, iPad. ($99.95). 30 pin connector. Also good reviews.

Covered in this thread (and lists one other GPS unit not in your post), but a stand alone post is good.


Here are 3 external GPS receivers for iPad (and iPhone and iPod)

Bad Elf GPS for iPad/iPod/iPhone, plug in with 66 Channel WAAS capability (http://www.sportys.com/PilotShop/product/16428)

Bluetooth GPS with 32 Channel WAAS (http://www.sportys.com/PilotShop/product/16133) (best rated)

"Dual" Bluetooth GPS independent receiver (http://www.sportys.com/PilotShop/product/16597)

Sorry. Didn't make myself clear. I realize there are other threads dealing with various GPS options. Just happened to notice (via the Amazon notification) that the price on the Dual Electronics XGPS150 had dropped since I last looked at it. While I was there I also noticed the Bad Elf unit was also referenced on the Amazon page.

Thanks for adding the reference to the various GPS options on other threads.
