No. No smartphone, so I want to look at getting a GPS. I have seen YouTube videos of people using iPads, but the online reviews of the apps aren't great. It's worth a try, though. Cheaper than a GPS.

That's what I was wondering too! The ones in my neighbourhood are all at schools or parks. I guess I can pretend I'm picking up my dog's "packages"!

About the iPad App, I think the main problem with it is that it's small. (Still designed for a smartphone... and not scaled for the iPad yet.) You should try it before plunking down all that cash for a GPS.

I put the free iPhone app on my iPad and it worked. I can increase the size so that it almost fills the iPad screen; however, it stays only in the "portrait" orientation, and won't flip to the "landscape" position on my screen. The accuracy seems ok. The one trouble is that it's hard to look inconspicuous when you are carrying such a large device. I'm also afraid of dropping it. Pretty fun to try, though!
