Sorry, I have been unavailable since I last posted. Here is the Dongle I was referring to
VK-162 USB GPS Dongle
Find it on Amazon for $15.97
Should work if you have a USB port.
Dongles for various applications have been around for devices for more than 30 years.
And if your device does not have an internal GPS maybe you are missing many features that modern ones have?

Thanks for the feedback Paul! Does the device you are talking about need a phone signal, or does it work directly off satellites?



If you are not living on the edge, you are taking up too much space!

"Could do better if he tried!" Report card comments from most of my grade school teachers. Sadly, still true!

The gps device is powered from your iPad and will feed your position to it. No cellular connection is required. Thus no phone signal is necessary.
My tablet (Android) has no phone connection, and it works great with its internal GPS. Works in the boondocks with no cellular connection. All my various maps I have loaded shows me where I am at and track my travels.
