    Is it possible to download a GPS app, connect the D2 via USB to an external GPS antenna and get accurate REAL GPS? My 70 year old mother has to drive to Cleveland Clinic and find her way around there for at least a week. She won't take my Garmin with her because she doesn't want to lose it, but is taking her D2 pad. Any help with this would be great!

    Basically the answer to all of that is no.l If the tablet had a GPS chip there are options but without one you would need to connect to a GPS via blue tooth.

    It's really pretty simple. There are no drivers to support a plugged in GPS or antenna.
