A Pilot friend of mine who flies for Quantas has been give an Apple Tablet "ipad" as have all pilots, he runs the GPS all the way on each flight so I guess those ones come with an integrated GPS receiver.

If your ipad has a simcard it will also have a built in gps . The wifi only ipads dont have a gps built in so you need a Bad elf or a blue tooth gps to run any nav programs . Even then you a locked into apple in purchasing expensive nav programs thru there app store. This is why the android tablets a so much more popular .The samsung galaxy tabs 7, 8 ,and 10'' a extremely easy to use and run lots of nav programs for free except $25 licence for oziexplorer . Forget about the Hema units they a way overpriced chinese win ce units have slow processors low resolution screens. hard to see on dash in sunlight. These run oziexplorer with a custom screen and igo as there street nav .IF you want to purchase a good navigator for offroad buy a brand name android tablet and ask a member to help set it up for you at an outing.It only take a few minites and will save you 3 to 4 hundred dollars compared to a hema unit
