FYI: If you have an iPod touch or an iPad wifi, you can get GPS location in a couple of ways.
You can also jailbreak your device and add an inexpensive GPS bluetooth receiver.
For the iPod touch the RoqyBT reportedly works.
For the iPad wifi the BTstack reportedly works.
FYI: You loose your warranty if you jail-break. Please be careful!
