You can get a bluetooth gps unit for these. I might even have one somewhere you can use. You can then install navionics on the ipad as a backup chartplotter.
Far better is it to dare mighty things, to win glorious triumphs, even though checkered by failure... than to rank with those poor spirits who neither enjoy nor suffer much, because they live in a gray twilight that knows not victory nor defeat.

If not, you can load an app on your phone to share its gps data with the ipad, over Bluetooth or wifi.
There is nothing, absolutely nothing, half so much worth doing, as simply messing about in boats

Yip easy to do if you have your oat instruments networked via wifi. I do that on our yacht.

Yes you can connect to GPS with an old ipad. You need a bad elf gps. [www.bad-elf.com]. That will connect you to GPS Satellites and GLONAS. what type of connection does your ipad have? if its the old original wide connection, I have a bad-elf that will fit.

Preferred backup at the helm is a Garmin 78, fits nicely in the phone pocket of the wet weather gear, around 16 hours on 2 AA batteries.
