Use a GPS app on your phone and bluetooth them together?

Thanks very much.

Not sure if the hotspot from iPhone transfers the GPS data to the iPad. Will give it a try.

There are many BLUETOOTH GPS solutions, such as Garmin Glo, or Bad Elf, or Dual XGPS.
However, if you literally mean a "plug in" unit, Bad Elf make one you plug in using the lightning port.

I could let you have a GNS 5870 MFI for £10 + postage. Upgraded my iPad to include GPS.

Be careful. Ipad GPS is not reliable. Do not use for navigation.
need something like Dual (no nonger supported by apple) or a Garmin
