Using Galaxy Tab A offshore with Aquamaps

On reading the specifications for the Galaxy Tab A - it says that the gps is usable only when connected to wi-fi. Will AquaMaps still work when I'm offline and offshore?

Try turning off the wifi and see if you can get a fix I have a Galaxy Tab 10 might be an A don't remember and it works anywhere with navionics. I thought all Android devises had built in gps? Good luck.

Re: Using Galaxy Tab A offshore with Aquamaps

We have two Galaxy Tab A tablets, and had another earlier one... GPS works on all without being connected to the 'net.

AquaMap works without being tied to the net.

AquaMap UPDATES only need occasional 'net connection.
