    The Link does not work. I've downloaded the 1.7 as a free update. Will check it out tonight on the ipad 3g to see how it works.

    Gah they still didn't fix the bug where if you navigating in heads up mode and click the screen to pan it forces you into north up mode.

    Otherwise VERY nice update, nice to finally have some ipad support.

    Not true. The Wi-Fi does have a GPS receiver. It is only enabled when it detects a WiFi connection. If you use iTether on the iPad and pair it with your iPhone, it will work fine.

    The Wi-Fi only iPad does NOT have a GPS chip. It uses triangulation to approximate your position. It does a pretty good job, but it's still not a true GPS.

    It is true GPS. How else does it get your location? by magic?

    While the iPad is of course a magical device.

    This part isn't magic at all.
