    Re: Which tablet to purchase for GPS purpose which operates without Wifi?

    If you mean a tablet with offline navigation then it is probably not possible as it is not supported in the Ice cream sandwich. It is available in the ASUS Nexus 7 tablet which will be available in the market and that it will be having a Android Version of 4.1 which supports offline google maps navigation and also make sure to buy a tablet which has GPS and not A-GPS.
    Hope this Helps.

    Dear,

    There is no such a kind of tablet available in Market which works with GPS without Internet connection.
    You need to have enabled internet connection, in order to use it such a wifi or 3G.
    If you want to buy android tablet, lots of option are available Rightnow but go for Galaaxy TAB 10.1
    It is the best tab available in Market .Works pretty fine.

    Pleasure to help you..!

    Though not tested,
    the note GPS should work without wi-fi. You may get only co-ordinates in the compass but any offline maps should give correct location.

    HELLO DEAR,


    GPS means Global Positioning System. It helps you in detecting various places and other necessary things. To locate these places it uses your network connection.

    So,

    It is NOT possible to get these facilities without internet connectivity.

    hey durgesh,
    You don't actually have the slightest idea how GPS works do you?
    GPS uses SATELLITES to get position data, this is achieved by utilising either an internal or external GPS receiver
    it has NOTHING to do with having an internet connection via GPRS or anything else, your ignorance would be funny
    if you weren't giving other people advice, try reading a book sometime.
