I thought the nexus 7 would be usable for driving directions. But it seems to have serious flaws that make it useless for driving directions. It would seem you need a 3g connection to use navigation or a wifi hotspot. Why would anyone need this Navigation program at all, you drive out of range of the wifi and the map may display, but I cant see it for the pop up/wheel of death icon right in the middle of the screen.
I tried google map from wifi and downloaded the map of my area for offline use, but it does not seem integrated with navigation.
I read that a 3g version is coming out so I guess I have to wait on that device?? Am I missing something???
I can't understand why a navigation app cant work w/o wifi like a simple black and white garmin ?
I need to be able to type a destination from any place in the city , even places w/o wifi, like my tom tom.
Is there freeware to do that or do I need to wait for the 3g version.
Please, if at all possible I need replies soon, I had it about 4 days, the walmart here is funny sometimes on refunds on electronics.
Other than this I enjoy my nexus 7
