If Fitbit devices can get tethered GPS via bluetooth from phones even in airplane mode, why aren’t there any iPad apps that can do the same?

I’m trying to connect my ipad to my phone to get gps in the plane. Fitbit devices can use my phone’s GPS even in airplane mode so I can hike for hours to save battery. It’s weird i haven’t found anything in the appstore for the ipad
