Sony Tablet S Sat Nav problems

  gavin-d 17:35 09 Jun 2012

A bit of advice is needed here, I purchased the Sony Tablet S in December last year and in a few weeks i'll will be going on a long jurney, now my plan was to use the Sony Tablet S as a Sat Nav however after many attempts around town I fail to get any sat nav working. I have tried;

Google maps (pre installed)

Navfree: Free GPS Navigation


CoPilot GPS

Each time I attempt to use them I can never get the GPS to work, each time it say's searching for GPS and never changes.

Does anyone have any suggestions for what I can do to get it to work

From the Sony Tablet help guide: "You can set whether to receive location information via GPS satellites or wireless networks. 1. Tap [ Apps] - [ Settings] - [ Location & security]. 2. To enable reception of location information via wireless networks, tap [Use wireless networks]. To enable reception of location information via GPS satellites, tap [Use GPS satellites]. A check mark is put in the box for that setting. Note: Move your tablet device as little as possible in an area with a clear view of the sky until the present location is displayed by the GPS function. The present location can be displayed quicker when stationary than while moving. If the present location is not displayed or if the wrong location is displayed, move to an area with a clear view of the sky."

This may help Sony Tablet S Navigation
