    Hello,
    Does the flytouch 3 need a internet connect to run gps. I'm asking because when I turn wifi off, Navigation doesn't work. It will forever say "Connecting" I am using google navigation

    Thanks

    It is the application google navigation that requires an internet connection to download maps 'on the fly'. So, with that application, no internet means no maps.
    There are plenty of other proper navigation applications that run on the FT3 that contain maps within the program so no internet connection is required.

    Try -
    CoPilot Live
    NDrive
    Aura
    NavDroid
    iGo 8.4
    Oziexplorer
    Navitel

    There are bound to be others too........

    I didn't see any of these listed on the market. Is there an alternate place for download or am I doing something wrong?

    Market access is not exactly sparkling on these tablets!! CoPilotLive is HERE, you can download some maps from within the software :)
    Sygic aura is HERE.

    Take a look at gpsunderground forum for GPS related info & files

    I installed the copilot on my flytouch 3, but it just freezes on the loading screen. I really want to use this app.

    By the way dart 16, you are a hero on this forum, very knowledgeable

    Thanks quinsyr...just paying back the help I had.

    Which version CoPilot are you trying? THIS one works....or rather it did work... it loads ok and you used to be able to download some maps for free from the server, but the last time I re-installed it on my tablet it told me there was a file missing so I guess CoPilot have 'fixed' it. Alternatively, you could take a look at http://gpsunderground or http://gpspassion for fully working updates....

    I contacted Copilot customer support, they told me my best bet was to go with Copilot v 9. For the life of me I can not find that link for V 9 paid or non paid. Anyone know where I can download it?
    Thanks
