    Dears,
    I would like to buy gTablet 10 with 16 GB, 3G and GPS installed, I found it in some online stores like Amazon but without any mention for 3G / GPS.
    Your advise is appreciated.
    Regards.

    If you search for "GPS" with handango.com the general store that comes with viewsonic G-Tablet you will find a few apps to download most for $$$.

    To go one further, there are now several apps out there that will transfer gps information from a phone to an android tablet when tethered. So now you can have both. I don't recall the names, read an article on one the other day.

    I found a solution somewhere you will need the following:
    1. Nokia 5800XM (GPS capable and running on Symbian)
    2. ExtGPS (Symbian App that makes the GPS available through bluetooth)
    3. GPS Mouse (Bluetooth GPS Driver for Android)
    4. Google Maps (Generic Mapping Software)

    This is how it should work:
    a. use JoikuSpot to turn the Nokia into wifi hotopt to connect the gtablet to the internet,
    b. use ExtGPS to share the GPS services with gtablet via bluetooth.
    c. Use Google Maps on the gtablet to navigate
    Follow the link to the original post http://androidforums.com/archos-tablets/214568-gps-working-archos-101-a.html 4 ur reference
    Pls try it and give us your feedback
    Cheers
