Tablet Navigation

BEWARE: NEW SAMSUNG TABLETS DO NOT HAVE A GPS INBUILT, ONLY WAY TO GET A FIX IS BY WIFI OR EXTERNAL GPS. CRAP, might buy 1 extra Tab S as they have 2 gps inside.

Re: Tablet Navigation

Which model are you talking about?

AFAIK, the latest, Tab S2 and TabPro S, both have GPS and GLONASS.

Re: Tablet Navigation

BTW, Neddy - your signature seems to be a bit out of date. It says you are sailing to MBP in May 2013
