I have an iPad2 that is WiFi only. I own the Navigon app on my 3GS iPhone and love it. Can you recommend an external GPS receiver that works well with the Navigon app for the iPad?Thanks, Doug
Model: iPad2 - 16 GB, WiFi Only
Connecting the iPad to my iPhone via Bluetooth.
Hello and welcome to JustAnswer!
You can use the QStarz BT-818x bluetooth GPS receiver.
They are available for under $70: http://www.amazon.com/BT-Q818X-Bluetooth-Receiver-Hardware-BT-Q818XT/dp/B001R1OO1W/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1312070390&sr=8-1
This will work great with Navigon on your WiFi-only iPad2.
You can also see a video of this setup in action here: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2yU6raDM3TY
The GNS 5870 is similar in function, size and price to the QStarz receiver and will work in the same way.
If you want to stick with a MFi device, then the GNS 5870 would be a good option.
The only edge on the QStarz device is that is has a slightly longer battery life.
