    GPS does not work

    Hi all, got my transformer yesterday. I am pretty impressed except the GPS appear not to work except for if I have my wifi on. If this the only situation in which it works it is clearly useless.

    I have tried it inside and outside with no success. Anyone know what is going on?

    My thanks in advance

    Hello and welcome to the Forum. The GPS does need WIFI, but there is a work around. You can determine your destination. then download the maps and it should work fine. The other choice is to tether the TF to your mobile phone.

    hmmm, that is disappointing.

    So how would I use it if I was lost and need to find my way somewhere?

    If you have a mobile phone with WIFI service you can thether (connect to your phone) for service.

    If you have a WIFI plan and your phone supports bluetooth.

    No, it doesn't. Google Maps needs wifi. GPS is not maps. GPS is just GPS. It expects nothing other than battery power and some handy satellites.

    There are good satnav apps in the market that use on-device maps. I use CoPilot. Not without its quirks, but a 10" satnav is a joyous thing to have in your car.
