The data bar at the bottom of the moving map will display real time information such
as next waypoint information (identifier, name, bearing, distance and estimated
time), current speed as reported by the GPS (ground speed), track, altitude as
reported by the GPS, height over ground (if the elevation data for your area is
installed), quality of the GPS signal.
For real time navigation, the quality of the GPS signal is required to be a green
or yellow symbol. A red or orange symbol will only show an approximate location and
will not report speed nor track information.
For better results, you should place your device near a window, with a direct view of
the sky, Do not hold the iPad with the hand covering the GPS antenna (black area on
the top of the iPad). If you are flying with a full metal airplane or your airplane
is equipped with anti ice windshield, the internal iPhone/iPad GPS may be a bit weak
and you may need an external GPS module.

from LSZG with the identifier W.
