I'm about to get an iPad and I have to decide about WiFi only or to pay extra for 3G/4G capability. Basically, I plan to use it almost always while sitting still (home, hotel, cafe, etc.), but when traveling, I'd like to use it instead of my phone for Google Maps navigation. My phone can function as a mobile hotspot, so I figure that even without a mobile-network capable iPad, I can connect to the phone and have wireless internet
But my question is: if I do that, will the iPad be able to pick up GPS location info from the hotspot, so that I can get directions from my current location (and see where I am on the map in real time)?
