TomTom Model(s)
TopmTom US & Canada Maps for iPad
I purchase TomTom app v1.13, app version 8.300 (1152935)
Map: “Nort_America_2GB” v900.4614
Lenguage: English UK.
Install it on iPad model MC769B/A IOS 6.1.3
Ipad Maps and Google Maps find GPS signal instantly and don’t have any problem with it.
TomTom has permanently engraved message “Poor GPS Reception”.
I check on the top of the mounting on nice day and message is same.
How to fix this or to get refund?


Thanks,
Jovica
 
Tomtom's requires a satellite GPS signal to acquire its position, as it is designed for driving. The iPad2 wifi model does not have a satellite GPS receiver.

Google maps and Apple maps use a wifi router registry to estimate position in absence of satellites, but if you drive out of any urban area (eg: out of range of wifi routers) those apps will lose signal too.

I don't own an iOS device, so hopefully someone else can comment on what the Apple Store's refund process/policy is.
 
Thanks for clarifying that iPad doesn’t have GPS receiver.
After buying Dual Electronics XGPS150A Universal Bluetooth GPS Receiver it is working fine.
