My car and me are excited ... Bring it on, Apple!
Yep, providing you splash the extra 100 notes for the cell version.
See, Apple have us every way don't they?...
You sure Apple wouldn't have GPS in their wifi? Nexus 7 and galaxy tab 2 have them among others.
That would be interesting since the iPad 3 wifi doesn't have GPS. It's a huge selling point for the Nexus 7.
I have a wi-fi only iPad. Kinda regret it - need an LTE connectivity on all iGadgets with iP5 being so fast for hotspot.
So am definitely buying the iPad mini with 3G or fake 4G or LTE whatever-it's for sure LTE or nothing, right? Wait - wi-fi version is ok as I use the iP5 as hotspot.
This is the problem.
Many of us these days just tether to our phones so have no need whatsoever for a cell version iPad.
Yet if we want GPS, we have NO CHOICE but to pony up another bundle for something we don't need and will never use.
I had to buy the cell version iPad (1) because I wanted GPS.
Know what also works really well?
They didn't put GPS in the new iPod touch, they won't in the ipad mini wifi either.
Daft really as I'm sure they would sell a lot more touches/mini's for car use.
I use the tomtom GPS dock for my iPod touch but its not ideal as it means you can't use the digital audio output. Instead you have to have an ugly cable coming out the side for analogue audio into car head unit.
3.5"-4" screen using Apple Maps that are incomplete and dont allow a maps download? Thats the solution I use now but its hardly ideal. I'd prefer a 7" screen (and iOS) but that wont work out for this task. I didnt even know the Nexus 7 had a GPS so for $200 to get a Google Maps navigation system with downloadable maps is pretty tempting.
Siri for navigation? You did want to end up in Istanbul right?
"Siri why are we in Istanbul?!"
Siri: "The time in Sydney is 15:36 turn right in three hundred yards"
Would you recreate this exact scenario you are talking about in Apple maps?
No rehashing of regurgitated overblown issues in the media, please.
