    Do I need wi-fi for using navigation (GPS) - TF300T

    Hi,

    I took my tablet in my car and started Navigator app. Set destination and GPS kept on searching for driving direction and never stopped. Tablet was showing exact location of my car on map but never found driving direction.

    So my question is do I need WiFi hotspot or am I doing any thing w wrong?

    Please help.

    If you are using Google Maps? Yes-- sort of. If you go into the optional settings of Google Maps, and enable pre-caching of the maps? And then go and actually pre-cache the map areas? You can use it to navigate like a running map.

    But, you cannot do searches on that map without wifi-- as all the search results happen on Google's servers, not your device. And you need WiFi for that.

    However, there are various GPS apps that will run on your device-- I'm using CoPilot myself. But these are not cheap (as apps go). However, they don't need WiFi once you've downloaded all the maps. They do use some of your internal memory though. A couple of gigabytes, but you have 32g to spare, so that shouldn't be an issue.
    TF101 B70 series, USA running Ice Cream Sandwich 4.0.3, rooted. 64gb microSDXC, keyboard dock with 32gb microSDHC in an adapter
    Dell Streak 7 running Honeycomb 3.2, rooted. 64gb SDXC. Mainly used as a music player.
    Virgin Mobile Optimus Slider, rooted -- frequently used as WiFi hotspot. 16gb microSDHC.

    You could also do what I do and get a 4G hotspot which would give you your WiFi on the road. Just another option.
