Does any one know how to calibrate a Samsung Galaxy Tab GPS and compass. Is the Galaxy Tab even "calibratable"?

I don't think you can calibrate the GPS in any device.

To calibrate the compass, in every device mobile device I have seen, you just need to draw 8's in the air with the device and turn it up and down few times. But this calibration doesn't last very long, I guess depending on the device.

The GPS runs off of satellites, not the compass. The Galaxy Tab E does not have a compass in it.
