Before I bought this tablet, I have been exploring about it on internet, and found on GSMArena that it has built in GPS.

IMG:

On Alcatel official site it also says that it has built-in GPS

IMG:

But when I try to start navigation with HERE WeGo app, app doesn't allow to start navigation because GPS isn't turned on.

IMG:

But in settings it is set to "High accuracy", which means that tablet uses GPS, Wi-Fi, Bluetooth.. to better determine location.

Does anyone had same problem or does anyone know solution?

Btw. I am sorry because language on tablet is set to Serbian, but I translated what is important.

  • The red box for the specs say GPS (LATAM Version Only). What version/model number do you have? – Morrison Chang Feb 10 at 20:13
  • Model: 8068, Android: 8.1.0, Kernel: 3.18.79, Build number: 01003. And what does LATAM mean? – Đorđe Milanović Feb 10 at 20:19
  • LATAM means Latin America, so for devices for sale to that region it will have GPS. However all I can find the Model 9009G - Alcatel 1T 7 3G. I would see if Google Maps gives you accurate location, and check if HERE WeGo has all the permissions granted. My fear is that the Yes with A-GPS from GSM Arena implies that the 9009G would need a sim/data plan for use, see: Assisted GPS – Morrison Chang Feb 10 at 20:54
  • It is not 3G version, it just has Wi-Fi. And HERE WeGo has all the permissions that it needs, so does that mean that this device doesn't have GPS even if there is setting for enabling it in settings? – Đorđe Milanović Feb 10 at 20:56
  • Correct. If Google Maps Go gets a reasonable fix, it may be due to their large collection of WiFi locations. Other tablets have GPS so can take a while to get a fix (even offline), but if the tablet doesn't have a GPS chip, all you can get is coarse location. – Morrison Chang Feb 10 at 21:02
