I've been using a garmin product for over 5 years now that fits on my wrist that tells me my speed while I jog that has the built in gps antenna. You would think that tablets could have this capability without having to get a service contract with the phone company.
We use a 3rd gen. iPad with built-in WiFi/Bluetooth/GPS with about half dozen Nav apps..but really like the iNavX app....and best if all...all free..thanks to Les's gazillion travel points..
