    gps--wifi only ??'s

    Hope this is the place for this post..

    I have a tab 2 7.0..wi fi only. 4.o..4
    I was told you could use the gps without connecting to the net. Im not sure this is true but have to ask is this can be done.

    I have not tried to use it tethered to my galaxy S sch 1500

    Thanks....

    Tom

    Welcome to the Forum Tom. You can plan your route while connected to wifi and save it to the Tab. When traveling it will give you turn by turn directions but no voice commands. An alternative is to tether to your phone. FoxFi is an app that will help you tether

    Hi Tom,

    Yes, you can use GPS without a net connection - but you cannot do navigation without a net connection. So if you want to use Google Skymap, for example, then turn GPS on & it will work even in the middle of no-where.

    It can be done but I think it's a 20 mile radius maximum

    GPS on without a data connection? Yes
    Plan a trip with no data connection? Yes with NavFree app in the Play store

    Thanks got that app and so far it's just what I was looking for. Its kinda hard to navigate the app it self. Which would make it hard to while it the car. But thats not a bad thing. Im not the kind that messes with things while driving.


    Thanks

    Agreed. It's complicated things that help me avoid the temptation to tinker while driving.
