I just bought a tablet and want to install a nav app. I have a collectiom of Cmaps and would like to be able to use them.
I'm not familiar with Droids, so this may be a valid caution for them. However, it's widely misunderstood that wifi or cell signals are required for gps functionality on an ipad. The reason for the confusion is you must buy the model that has the cell data receiver to get the gps receiver. However, they are not inter-dependent. Having a wifi or cell connection can speed up the gps receivers initial satellite connection, as it knows roughly where it is on the globe and which sats to look for first, but it's still not required. May or may not be the same with droids.Make sure your Android tablet has true, standalone GPS capability. Many tablets don't and rely on either wifi or cell signals. ......
Don, Where do you find the NOAA app?We use the free NOAA app. No frills, for sure, but it is more accurate than my Garmin handheld. And did I mention that it's free?
