Hi all, hopefully someone can help me out here, only realised this week that the PlayBook has built in GPS hardware, can anyone tell me if there is an app or maps that can be downloaded to take advantage of the GPS hardware to use the PB as a satnav without the need to be tethered to my phone or to a WiFi connection? If not, what exactly is the point of having onboard GPS hardware?

Hi there, first of all many thanks for the reply, but I'm afraid I didn't quite understand your reply, is Compass Products an actual app name? If not can you tell me the actual application name, just to be clear, I am looking for a product that will enable me to use my PlayBook like a satnav with onboard mapping without the need to be tethered to my smartphone or to an active WiFi connection similar to a TomTom or Garmin Nuvi

Also Bing maps and Poynt use gps but you need to be outside not indoors.
Somewhere on this forum tell you how to sideload Google maps which is a sat nav type android App.
