I lost my Acer Android Tablet a500 Iconia Tab outside and there is no GPS TRACKER OR ANY SORT OF TRACKER THAT I KNOW OF I THINK and I need all the help I can get to get my device back, It means alot to me. So please feel free to give some advice or a solution to deal with this messed up plot. Thank you. All your effort will be HIGHLY APPRECIATED! ndndjfnsjdnfjsdnf –  nashita Sep 3 '12 at 18:23
    
    
BTW: the a500 has built-in GPS, so Plan B will work if it's connected to the internet still. If not and the battery is empty, you're out of luck and have to search it the usual way. –  ce4 Sep 3 '12 at 18:35

thanks for your help, but the thing is I already lost it, so there is point of installing it now cause i dont have it with me. Its already stolen and I need away to track it and get it back! ---Thnx any further help would be highly appreciated.--- –  nashita Sep 3 '12 at 18:33

well I'm not an expert on this, So can you explain how (instructions)! I dont have the tablet with me. So how could I go to google play? Thnxs –  nashita Sep 3 '12 at 18:36
    
@nashita Access this direct link to the PLAN B application from Google Play Store. Press the install button and if your tablet is connected to the network, the application should install by itself. After the install, you'll get a map with GPS coordinates on your Gmail account. –  Zuul Sep 3 '12 at 18:49
    
@Zuul thank you sooo much. OK now i have a question does it have to battery and wifi connection cause my Acer Android Tablet a500 Iconia Tab if fully out of charge and it defiantly not lost in my house so I dont think it has wifi connection. So will it still WORK? Thank you –  nashita Sep 4 '12 at 21:20
