GPS Capability

Postby Martifers » 01 Oct 2013, 15:23

I am trying to assess the capability of the Hudle as a device to use for MemoryMap or GetOSMaps type software. Has anybody tried the GPS capability or know anything about this?

Hi, thanks for the post. I havent tried any of the apps you mention but have tried it with Googlemaps and the GPS and I can report back that it works well.

It should therefore work equally well with any of the apps you mention that rely on the GPS.

Depnding on the size of the maps you may need to install a micro-sd card, however the standard device has a decent amount of memory as standard.

Hope that helps.

I will try this when I collect my Hudle tomorrow evening and report back to the Forum.

I have now tried OS MapFinder and it is able to use the GPS facility in the Hudle.
Location Settings are set to GPS satellites and I have turned off the Wi-Fi & mobile network location as when I am using GPS I will not have a Wi-Fi connection.
To get it to work the first time I had to turn off Wi-Fi
There is no mention of the GPS in the Hudl user guide.

Looks like it is going to do the job just fine.

Have used the BE ON ROAD app from Playstore.

Works well as a 7 inch Sat Nav.

I am having trouble connecting to GPS satellites. It spends ages searching for satellites & sometimes does not connect at all. I know there is satellite coverage as my Garmin GPS connects easily. Is there anything I might be doing wrong or have I just got a duff GPS chip?

Mine won't connect indoors, even held against a window or the same places where my 'phone works fine. Outdoors it works fine and we've used it in the car twice with no problem.
