Ipad3 where is my 'location' for GPS?

Posted by ilmbg (My Page) on

I have Ipad3. Wifi.
It is supposed to have 'location' to access GPS, yet I do not have anything
That says 'location'. I believe it is under 'notifications', but I do not have it.
What's up?

Have you turned on the GPS app to see if it prompts you to confirm your location? That's the way of location saving/confirmation that I am familiar with on the iPad/iPhone, it is strictly application driven.

RE: Ipad3 where is my 'location' for GPS?

I am not aware of a particular GPS app- is it one that is in the App Store?
I looked up on the ipad3 forum, which says to open 'location', which is under 'notification', but it is not there.
Guess it is time to call Apple...

RE: Ipad3 where is my 'location' for GPS?

This is for IOS6 so I have no clue if thar\t is Ipad 3 as I don't own apple anything but maybe the visuals will help you find it.

I know on my new android phone when I first booted to set it up there was a screen to turn on location services or I could do it later form settings it said. My phone came with the GPS already installed and I think I had location services off so when I opened the GPS app it asked me about turning it on so I would think Ipad might be the same way and the GPS app is already installed but as I said I dont have apple anything.

I found this answer from a recent post.

Have you tried: Settings/Privacy/Location Services?

A breeze- yes you are correct. I would usually look at my ipad late at night, long after 'help' was closed. ..but I actually remembered during the day yesterday. You are correct about settings/privacy/location.
Every other place I tried to look up said location was under 'general', which it is not.

Good. I'm happy it worked for you.
