Does E7001/aPad have GPS, as spec described?I'd read several reviews but none of them mentioned about GPS.Even one review says "GPS = Gravity Sensor" so does it really come with GPS?Could anyone confirm it, please?

Hello, the amouncements of ebay, webpages etc sais that it has GPS, but, in reality, it haven?t got GPS, only has google maps wiht posibility of connect and get your position by internet wifi conection, but not a real and correct position.I dont know if it can use a USB GPS, by usb host, without driver for Android is very difficult.Ahora en espa?ol, bueno para el que no lo entienda, pregunt? a varios vendedores y todos me dijeron que no tiene GPS, pero esque son muy listos, y ponen que trae GPS por google maps, y en teor?a lo que quieren decir es que puedes usar google maps y conseguir tu localizaci?n a trav?s de los repetidores y conexiones wifi donde te conectes, pero solo ser? aproximada, sin utilidad real para guiarte.Otra cosa ser?a que se le pudiera conectar un gps usb, de esos que valen unos 30 euros, pero claro, sin drivers que funcionen en Android no hacemos nada.

My question regarding GPS is this: Will a USB GPS dongle, or receiver with cable, work with an aPad? Does a driver exist that will allow it to work with Google Maps? I would assume so, since many sellers are indicating GPS in one way or another.Anyone know where any necessary driver might be?

Would iGo 8 work with the aPad, and an external UPS GPS receiver? Anyone try that combo? Was actually hoping a smaller Windows CE device could be my pocketable, do everything friend; but the Chuwi W3000 isn't available anymore.

which is host mode? I have it in its default mode (that is I haven't changed anything), and when I plug a thumb drive in, it reads it. If it can read a thumb or external drive, does that mean it's in host mode?
