Hey, I'm Skylar. With it's long battery life and high resolution display iPod Touch makes a really good device for GPS navigation except for the fact that it doesn't have a cellular data connection. So it wont actually receive information about maps when you're not connected to WIFI which is a little bit of a limitation, but there are a couple of products on the market that make it work. So I'm just going to show you the web page of one such product The Bad Elf GPS, this is an awesome little unit that's not all that expensive and that plugs in to the 30 pin connector on the bottom of your iPod and that acts as a GPS receiver so that you can use offline maps like maps that you'd store by a PDF or even the new Apple Maps application will work offline and this GPS chip will allow that, I don't know, it will allow your location to be represented on the map, even if you don't have Internet connection. There's also The Bad Elf GPS Pro which is cool because it connects with Bluetooth and it does up to a hundred hours of data logging. So if you're pretty serious about hiking or being in some place that's a brand new place for you, you're exploring or you know, geocaching, that might be a really good option because it also connects wirelessly so you can just leave the iPod in your pocket and still know that it's logging your location, leaving a trail of bread crumbs as it works. So those are two great options for adding GPS functionality to an iPod Touch, Thanks for watching, I'm Skylar.
