IOS – Installing a specific iOS on a new iPad


I've just bought a new 3rd Gen iPad as a gift. I assume it comes with iOs 5.1 installed on it. I want to install iOS 5.1.1 on it as I'd rather not use the Maps app provided in iOS 6. I know that iTunes will only offer the latest version of iOS (6.0.1 at this time.)

How can I download and install iOS 5.1.1 to a new iPad? I am not willing to jailbreak it.
