iPad 3G as in car GPS

How feasible would it be to use an iPad as a GPS in your car?

A regular portable GPS just needs the windshield to locate the satellites while the iPad requires AT&T 3G.

I am wondering how accurate it would be and how often you would hit dead spots in AT&T service.



Any thoughts?

    Reports from Macrumors.com suggest the GPS in the iPad is superior to the iPhone. Coupled with a much faster processor the iPad sounds like it makes for a good Nav device
