    Hello everybody,

    I have been searching for an Android Tablet, preferably with 7'' screen, with GPS function. However I have not been able to find such a tablet!

    I want to use my tablet in my car as well..so instead of buying GPS device and Tablet seperately, I would like both in one machine.

    There are machines with GPS function but operation on Windows.

    Can anyone here suggest me one with GPS and Android?

    Thank you all in advance

    We are all waiting for one (that works) too.

    The Telechips device we talked about the other day here: http://www.androidtablets.net/forum...r-telechips-tcc8902-android-2-1-7-tablet.html
    Will have a GPS variant.

    I am certain that it is feasible, because there is WinCE support for GPS on the Telechips platform. But that's the chipset to watch out for.
    There's also the WITS A81E

    I don't think there is anything good enough just yet

    The HSG MIDX5G appears to be advertised (in Chinese) with an internal GPS. Is this for real, vaporware, or not ready for prime time?

    Here is an option.
    Android 2.2 Tablet Cortex A8 Support GPS.

    It's a 7" tablet running Android 2.2 OS with integrated GPS.
    Hope it would help.

    Better question What don't I own, Oh a generic APAD
    And if you want outrageous storage and something that is more of PMP than Tab. The Archos A5A/500 is being unloaded for $250 right now on Amazon.
    The positives,
    500G storage
    Good functional GPS (Now)
    Decent WNIC, Battery Life,BT and Market can be installed.

    The not so positives
    Only 1.6 (and the 2.2 Community build does not like GPS module that well)
    Only 4.8 screen not 7 inch
    Model is being retired which is why selling so cheap
