You don't need to be connected, but if you don't have cell capability, I don't think you'll have a GPS chip and the device won't know where you are.

Dan almost all IPads have GPS built into them even if they do not have Cell capability. They are used for the find my apple product features and such.

I just completed a camping trip from Illinois to Mississippi and back, using RV CoPilot. I could not be happier with the CoPilot app. It gave precise directions, ETA, etc. It also had extra features, like the ability to find the weather conditions for your destination. I'm glad I returned the Garmin and bought the RV CoPilot app.

Regarding whether every iPad ever sold or currently sold has a GPS chip, there's no need to debate. Download the free trial of the software and you'll know pretty quickly whether your iPad has a GPS chip.

I have just bought Garmin 760LMT Portable GPS Navigator. Fantastic. We traveled all across Canada, and all across the US, and this really helped our journey. I really like the voice command feature, and the way it finds the nearest gas station. Only issue (for me) is that I have not yet figrued out how to save preferred routes.

I did end up getting the larger Rand McNally 7-inch screen RV GPS Android Tablet device...and it is awesome!

Does anything that any phone app will do plus more!

It works just like any GPS when just travelling, but when you connect to the Wifi in your cell phone...it just can't be beat!

$350 buckeroonies...
