I had problems with my tablet getting a lock on GPS satellites - it either didn't work or the few times it did, it took forever. I wrote a review panning the device pending a replacement that works.

Not sure what you are asking... The GPS receiver is a full on GPS receiver and it works without a wifi or cellular data connection. However, if you try to use Google Maps or other online mapping app without wifi, those apps won't work even though the GPS receiver is working, because those apps need a data connection. You can get apps that store maps on your device so that you don't need data while driving or hiking or sailing, etc. And, now, Google Maps lets you download and store map data for offline use, as well. Hope this answers your question.
