Do I Need an External iPad GPS?

The 3G model of the iPad, in addition to its built-in cellular antenna, also includes an internal GPS. The GPS is completely separate from the 3G data service, so you don’t even have to have an active data plan for the GPS to work. You could buy the 3G model purely for the GPS and never activate the data plan, saving yourself some money. But the on-board iPad GPS was made for ground use, and it’s not very reliable in the air. It has a tendency to drop offline, especially when switching between apps. For this reason, most iPad pilots—even those with a 3G iPad—opt for an external GPS. They are extremely accurate (WAAS-enabled) and very reliable. They also offer free apps that allow you to monitor the GPS’s performance.

"...we recommend using an external GPS with the iPad if you want reliable GPS data."

"...it performed flawlessly on our test flight home from Oshkosh."

Bought this as I'm still a student pilot and couldn't justify the price of an ADS-B receiver. Works well with my ipad and provides accurate information. Had a full electrical failure on my last solo xc and was able to easily navigate home because of this. For that I will always highly recommend having something even as basic as this when flying with and Ipad!

great little devise for the money, never had a problem with it not working, although for just a little more the next model up will allow more than one devise to be used, so it would be nice to have the phone app working to check information while leaving the ipad alone, its just faster sometimes to use one hand with the phone to gather info.

Great GPS source
Gotta say, this thing works perfectly! I have been using it for almost a year now, and have nothing bad to say about it. Most importantly, it gives a very accurate position, and doesn’t seam to be picky about where in the plane you put it. It acquires it’s position in less time than it takes to start the plane. I love that it has an internal battery. I just charge it at home between trips, and have yet to have the battery run out on me. Highly recommend.

Seems to work well so far - good value
I've only used the Dual for a couple flights (one of which was a trial run on a commercial flight as a passenger), and it really works nicely. It syncs to my Foreflight flawlessly. It did drop the connection once, and I'm not sure why. That's the only reason I did not give all "5's". This was during the commercial flight, so it may have been due to positioning.

My iPad Air does not have a internal GPS so will this still work?
Titanic on Nov 25, 2016
BEST ANSWER: Yes it will work. I haven't found a better place than the dash which exposes it to a lot of heat in warm months. The rubber holder is black and absorbs heat. Heat can cause it to shut off which happened to me once. I haven't tried using it without the holder yet. I do wish I had purchased the version which enables more than one device to connect because a co pilot can use it with their IPad at the same time.
Will this device update the GPS position that the iPad is giving to the Jeppessen EFB I use at work without an additional app? My IT department will not allow us to add any apps, and the internal GPS is a bit sketchy at 550 Knots.
Brent. on Aug 30, 2018
BEST ANSWER: Yes, this will provide the GPS position to the iPad.
Can this GPS be used on commercial aircraft since it doesn't utilize wifi?
sam92 on Jun 1, 2017
BEST ANSWER: Yes, I fly commercially and use this myself and I have also used it on commercial flights as a passenger. It works really well. I have found that reception varies based on your position in the plane (e.g. on a 737 near the window vs. aisle). Airlines have different policies about electronic devices and potentially can ask you to turn a device off if they are not comfortable with it.
Will this the support synthetic vision in Foreflight Pro Plus?
David R on Oct 5, 2016
BEST ANSWER: I do not know, but since you've asked about the XGPS150A I must tell you that for me and another friend has not been completely reliable. Often during flight it loses the satellite, right now I've been without it for about 3 weeks because it does not connect (through bluetooth) to the iPad Mini.

So it was asked below, nearly 8 months ago and there is not a clear answer. Does this provide full functionality with ForeFlight Pro Plus? Has anybody tried this and determined if it will?
A shopper on May 31, 2017
BEST ANSWER: The Dual XGPS150A will provide Foreflight with a GPS position that works on the moving map. It also provides GPS Ground speed, GPS altitude. This GPS does not provide the backup AHRS with pitch and roll information.
If my Ipad is connected to this GPS through bluetooth, can I still pair a headset at the same time?
