You should already have sounds if you have the silent switch off and the volume tuned up while you are in maps.

Sorry to say, the WiFi only iPad or iPad Mini don't have Voice Turn by Turn like the iPhone does. See below images from my iPhone5 and iPad Mini . .

I'm just curious - do you know if the navigation features show up in the 4G enabled versions of the iPad or is it iPhone only? i have to imagine they might (which I know is of no use here for the OP).

Just looked on my Fiancé's old iPad 3 with 3G and in Maps the voice controls do show up . . . Now its a hand me down Xmas present for one of our boys while i get the new R iPad Mini lol But yea its there, in all its glory . . . .

Just makes me wonder though, why is it so hard to throw in a GPS in all iDevice's ?? Or is it incorporated with the Sim somehows ?? Hmmm off to iFixIt i thinks

I don't think it has anything to do with GPS and everything to do with data connections. I can do navigation on my Android tablets for instance if I have a wifi connection but I can't do navigation if I don't. That leads me to believe that a persistent data connection is the key (for map and voice data presumably).

I have a App called Mud Maps for 4 Wheel Driving in Aust, and i had my iPad Mini connected via hotspot on my iPhone, and it didn't follow along for the ride. I have now just recently bought a Apple approved GPS from Bad Elf and that connects via Bluetooth and works amazingly well.
This usually picks up 11-12 satellites and its accurate to 2 foot or 24" in the old scale and with its own App or another App i can now use my iPad Mini a Range Finder . . . Im amazed at what i can do, having a dedicated GPS unit connected now, but out bush, ill never be lost or off a track. I can start tracking, then it gives me a 100 hrs of Data, so i can then turn around, and use that data to take me back to where i came from . . But we are getting off track here ~ No pun intended

Hi, Thanks for the information that you posted it is really interesting.

So if I use the apple approved bluetooth that you have bought can I have a fully functional GPS on my ipad? If yes can you please send me a link for this device?

thanks again really appreciated.
