Re: Phone/Tablet Navigation
I'm in this boat, android or apple. Did a google search IPAD with GPS, apple site iPad 6th gen has "Assisted GPS and GLONASS" when the iPad comes with WI-fi and cellular.iPad uses the location and time information from a wi-fi node and or cell tower to acquire the GPS and GLONASS satellites. I can live with that. Hopefully it stores the almanac so next time its powered up acquisition is faster. Next question: Will an iPad acquire the GPS signal while it is below deck? If not can an external antenna be added, same question applies to an android device. If the inability to acquire below deck is true perhaps the solution is to have an external GPS receiver.
