    Use of GPS without a data connection..??...

    Hi all, just wondering what is the point of the GPS if you don't have a data connection? I appreciate I could tether it to my phone for that - but how does it all work with the Transformer? Is there a map app installed/that you can install? Or can you install (if it isn't already?) Google Maps and pre-cache areas?

    Thanks...

    Another subject that has been discussed ad nauseam and would be found quickly if you searched.

    Yes, you can install Google Maps and cache map areas, and there's a number of free and paid navigation applications on the market which will make use of GPS and which have map data installed on the device. All you have to do is look.

    With in built navigation, you NEED to be online to get direction, even if within a Pre cached area.

    Once you get them, you can go offline.

    Having GPS is good for things other than just directions, and doesn't require a connection. Location based services work well. Google Sky Map works and getting an app like Sygic allows for directions with downloaded maps.
