    So if you root the 7015 and install adroid market you won't be able to use google maps? Is that correct?

    You can use maps, just not the navigation activity.

    I have two different GPS antennas, one is USB (Ambicom) and the other is accessed via bluetooth connection. I have not tried to fiddle with connecting a USB Bluetooth yet.

    My question has to do with the Ambicom USB GPS Antenna. Will the Kryos need a driver for this to work? If so, how can I get into the device to work with Maps and Navigation?

    Or does anyone know if there is an app with these or similar drivers wrapped in the software?

    I would like to work on getting this working...any one have a clue where to begin?

    Plug it in and see if it works?
    Failing that, check google.

    hi. i am buying a coby MID7010-4g.

    i am also interested to know if the tablet can be made to work with GPS navigation software.
    i consider only 2 options to receive GPS data:
    * from a BT device (over USB/BT adapter) or
    * directly from a USB - GPS device.

    there is another option, to use a SD GPS card, but i don't think this is an option.

    please post here if anyone have successfully done this.

    thank you!
