    Provided there are Wi-Fi access points around. I live out in the country and it was very obvious to me that I wasn't getting any GPS.

    FYI: In some cases, while testing this, I had to "kill locationd" (or for simplicity, reboot) on the iPad side. Just a side tip for any users who have issues. Not sure why (I'm assuming Apple's bug)

    I can tether my iPod to my Palm Pre and get my location on Maps, too. So, I don't think this is a new or unique feature.

    60 second lag? Yikes! 60 seconds at 60mph is one mile. Guess we're not going to use that for turn-by-turn navigation, that's for sure!

    Ummmm this has worked for me for a long time...?

    If I use MyWi on my iPhone 4 at 4.1, I can get exact position on a tethered iPod Touch.

    well the previous video shows compass information, how do you explain that maybe your not doing something right or necessary to get the desired result. one persons poor trial doesn't debunk anything. congrats on wasting your time

    I'm sorry I don't understand your comment. You do know that the Wi-Fi iPad has a compass right?

    The lag is no good, especially if your driving down a fast busy street, that minute is way too long. Its cool that it works for it but that lag is no bueno.

    i don't care if you were grandfathered in with your unlimited data like i was. that's just f*ckin abuse man.
    If AT&T sells unlimited data plans then they'd better have the bandwidth. Otherwise its false advertising.

    I think it's crazy that they charge you again for an additional data plan, instead of incorporating it into your existing data plan. Pretty soon data plans will co$t more than voice hahaha! Oh well its the nature of the game. I'll stick with MyWi...why pay $20 a month, when you can pay a one time fee...NO BRAINER :]

    If you are running a program that needs gps like maps or starwalk on your iPad, tether your iPhone and the iPhone becomes a gps dongle. Very cool!

    I see that it works for the iPad, but I can't tell if it's for the iPad 2 as well. Do you know?

    I might just go in on an iPad for the car now. First gen of course cuz it's cheaper! Hopefully we get some tweaks so that we can actually use apps like navigon (unless we already can?) on the iPad using this feature.

    While his actions are certainly questionable, consider how much bandwidth gaming takes. It more about latency than a ton of data thrown back and forth. It hardly warrants your childish potty-mouthed tyrade.
