The GPS receiver in the iPad does not require cell coverage at all. It isn't a cell phone triangulator, it's an actual receiver just like any gps. I use it in the airplane with zero cell coverage and it is spot on.

This confuses people because only the cell based 3G iPad come with the separate gps receiver.

In the harsh marine environment, something is always in need of repair. Margaritas fix everything.
