I'm debating about buying the Nexus 7 2nd gen or New Kindle Fire HDX since their prices are the same, $229 (16GB).
While Nexus 7 (WiFi version) does seem to support GPS without buying any 4G plan, and provides GPS navigation support even without WiFi signal. Is this true?
The question here is that although there is no problem for Nexus to locate own position - a coordinate, but it need to load the neiboring map using wifi. How can we do that if we are driving and there is no WiFi signal?
One solution to work through this might be to download *offline maps*. Any app that provide free offline maps?
For the new kindle, I'm talking about the one with cpu: Quad-Core 2.2 GHz.
From the product description here,
Kindle Fire HDX 7", HDX Display, Wi-Fi, 16 GB - Includes Special Offers
it seems that GPS support is only possible for the 4G version, not for the WiFi version. Can anyone please confirm this?
