    I have a rooted Flytouch 3 (also known as Superpad 2) and I want to use the GPS feature in it. I cannot find any navigation apps that I can get to work.

    The instructions that came with the tablet say the following about how to use the GPS:
    "11. How to use GPS
    The MID can support GPS, which offers you navigation. Due to built-in Antenna, you can use GPS anytime and anywhere without the internet access.

    How to use GPS:
    A. Firstly, plug in the TF card which contains the GPS software to the TF-1 Port. It can not be plugged out when GPS is working because some data will be read from or written into it.
    B. You can check the contents in the TF card in the OI file manager and click the APK file of the GPS software to install.
    C. Click home, then you will find the application of the Navigation icon in the main interface. ..."

    Then it goes on more with how to enable the GPS antenna and open the application. It does not say anywhere what software to use. Do any of you have any ideas?

    i just bought MID/flytouch 3 because the GPS, so the first thing i try with it is the GPS..

    i found that navitel navigation software works fine. i already install and test it.
    you don't need internet nor 3G network to use the GPS. but it takes some times to search the satellite. plus, you should have the maps package installed separately, according to your position/country.

    i don't know if garmin have GPS application for android. but if it does, i think it will be better (because i already familiar with garmin XT)

    hope i can help..

    Garmin doesn't have a package yet, but they recently bought Navigon.

    YES!!! YESSS!!! I am so happy to read this!! It's about time! Can you tell I'm excited? I so miss Garmin style navigation, I had an iQue before, it was awesome, worked like a dream, my Captivate has so often made a trip right out the car window due to frustrations over Google Maps and Navigation - oh, you have made my day!
