    Devices like the Dual XGPS160 and Dual XGPS150A will add GPS to Apple devices. Some people have said tethering works, so it wouldn't hurt to give that a try before you go out and buy a GPS receiver.

    ?
    Doesn't every iPad have GPS?

    Do you mean internet connectivity (via a SIM card), if so you shouldn't need this for follow me.

    So you can't use maps, "check in" on Facebook, look at your local weather, use google earth etc?
