Tom Tom for IPAD - does not talk to us LIVE and give us directions - non Wifi - please help????

I purchased TOM TOM for IPAD from ITUNES on basis of reputation. I had thought that I could get directions spoken to me as with a normal car-mounted GPS without needing a wifi connection. All it does is provide maps and location and a demo only of the route. There is no live directions. Is the way it is meant to be? if so, I have been ripped off

Is your iPad the 3G model or just the wi-fi model?

 

 - If it's a 3G model then it should work as it has a built in GPS receiver

 - If wi-fi only, you will need a bluetooth GPS receiver as the wi-fi only model don't have a GPS receiver built in.
