    Gps works works fine for 1 stop. Cannot program next stop or return. Is this asus problem or Gps software? Had Tr 101 1 month. Any suggestions?

    What app are you using? If its google maps, pretty much basic functionality as far as routing features are concerned. Still not bad for a free app though, and the maps are very up to date without having to pay through the nose for map updates. If you want more sophisticated routing features, try Navigon. Drawback is its a paid app and you need to have sufficient on board storage for the map files.

    I am using"Navigation." Someone said WTFI was necessary to bring up the maps. If this is true, I hope a fix will be forthcoming.

    "Navigation" is a google app that uses google maps. Since the google map data reside in the "Cloud" you need a wifi or 3g connection to download the map data and navigational information pertinent to your route to your device. That's just the way it works. There is not going to be any fix. If you want permanently resident map files on your device so that you are not dependent on a data connection, then you are going to have to go for one of the more traditional paid GPS navigation apps such as NAVIGON.
