The only mention of GPS on their specs page is this:

http://www.apple.com/ipad/specs/

"Assisted GPS (Wi-Fi + 3G model)"

Those are the higher priced models. No mention of vendor.

http://gps.about.com/b/2010/01/27/ap...n-features.htm

" GPS and navigation features:

* Built- in GPS chip and accelerometer.
* Built-in magnetic compass.
* Apple claims the iPad will run all existing iPhone apps,
including navigation apps. However, the screen size will remain iPhone-
size until developers adapt their apps for the larger screen.
* Google Maps runs full-screen on this device, which makes it more
like the Google Maps experience on a good PC or laptop monitor. "

"The iPad with 3G capability will start at $629, about $130 more than
a top-of-the-line Garmin GPS. Yes, many of the GPS apps available on
the iTunes store charge a $10 monthly subscription fee, but some stand-
alone GPS units also have a subscription fee for data like live
traffic and gas prices."

Sounds like the short answer to the question in the headline is "No".
