Actually, that is one of the big differentiators between iPads and Android Tablets (and Windows Tablets too). Apple reserves the actual GPS Circuitry for their 3G/LTE iPads - it's part of Apple's "Value Proposition" for these more expensive models. Samsung, LG, ASUS, et al in the Android and Windows Markets, are under no such hardware constraints and often add GPS Circuitry to their Wifi-only Tablets.
Those without built-in GPS can often "survive" based on the Location Services provided as part of their 3G/4G Data Service. Or they can add an External GPS (Bad Elf, Garmin, etc) as long as they have a USB-To-Go Port (for Andriod/Windows) or 30-pin Connector (for iOS Devices).
But in all cases, one will still be restricted to requiring an active Wifi (usually HotSpot from 3G/4G Data) or 3G/4G Connection, in order to download-on-the-fly map segments and POI Data and Traffic Info and all the other stuff that Waze or Google Maps (or Apple Maps) present on their Navigation GUI.
There are a few 3rd-party Nav Apps that also use on-the-fly Map Data, but most will instead use Persistent/Downloaded Map Data that is either part of the LARGE Initial Install or else Downloaded as part of the Destination Routing process. (The latter doesn't help much when you are "Off Exploring" without a Pre-selected Destination...)
