Convert "wifi only" iPad to backup chartplotter?

I know the information is on our site, but I just can't seem to put it all together.

We are going from Chesapeake Bay to Bermuda and would like to use an iPad as a backup chart plotter. Here is my thinking:

I will download the appropriate/available NOAA raster charts.

With "wifi only" ipad 3, I know that I will need an exterior GPS with Bluetooth and an app to manage the charts.

What combination of GPS and app have you used successfully for an iPad 3 with "wifi only?"

Thanks for any help.
