    I tried to run google sky maps on my kyros 7022. I have yet to go out at night with it. I dont think its working right. I have location enabled in my settings. When i load the app, im always looking north, when i turn around its still north, doesnt change. It only changes if i spin the device around in place, which makes no sense. I tried to manually input my location but it wont let me input location or long. & Lat.

    Does the coby kyros 7022 even support GPS?

    It has no built-in GPS but you may be able to use an USB or Bluetooth GPS installing a custom firmware (CFW) that supports them. Even if you don't have an external GPS, the CFW may enable WiFi location properly (it works pretty well in city areas already mapped by Google), but the magnetometer (the sensor used to set the North, etc relative to the tablet) won't work, of course.
