So I am pretty new to Android OS and this Arnova 10 G2.  So sorry if this is a dumb question.

Why do none of the apps that can use location services work on the 10 G2?  Gmaps, etc all say your location is temporarly unavailable?  I have location turned on in setting for WiFi but still no joy.

My iPod 4 works fin with Wifi Location services spo I know it's not my WiFi routers etc.

Does this not work for WiFI on any Android tablet or just this version for the Arnova 10 G2?

 

Thanks,

Bob

Because you do not have a Gps receiver on this model

My iPod 4 does not have GPS and it works with location services just fine over WiFi.

So I guess Android OS works different in that it has to have a GPS?  Bummer.

Android can normally pass wifi location fine, to maps or whatever. Works on archos gen8 and I thought it initially worked on the arnova, but at least not after I enabled gmarket.

When I first got the Arnova before doing anything I downloaded Maps from the applib market… Version 5.2 I believe.  Location services did not work for me then either.

 

Anyone else got it to work before installing Gmarket root or not?
