Hello, I have tested the tutorial GPS and it works well in a smartphone, but in a tablet it does not detect the satellites.
In the tablet, the google maps detects the location correctly and also other softwares that I have tested.
What can happen?

Tablet: wolder mitab.
Android: 4.4

From what I saw in the internet - your tablet doesn't have gps so no wonder it does not recieve satellites.

It is curious. The tablet says that it has GPS:

However, as you have said, I have read the user's manual and it does not have GPS.
Then, how do they obtain the location google maps and other software?
Thank you.

How is the location for wifi?
Is the tablet does not need GPS?

It is curious. The tablet says that it has GPS:
compare it to laptops that have the blutooth led and/or switch but the Blutooth module is not added to the laptop.
they did that to prevent the design of yet another type of casing.

I guess Android expects to have GPS available on every device.
