Know what GPS local search capability you have on the Novatel Wireless MiFi 2200
I am a little confused about the GPS feature on the mifi device. Does the GPS feature work the same way that my Sprint Navigation works on my HTC SNAP Smartphone? If I enable this feature, will it use my alloted megabites per month? I am assuming that this is being used when you are lost? Has any user enabled this and found it more helpful than the apps on your smartphone? Many thanks, Caroline
Re: Know what GPS local search capability you have on the Novatel Wireless MiFi 2200
I have enabled the GPS on my Mifi card. What I've learned: I accessed this feature through my laptop computer mounted in my truck. There don't seem to be any apps associated with this feature for the Mifi card. The only thing I was able to do was search for nearest (search options are limited to; banks, hotels, gas stations, Sprint stores, etc.,) and linked the search option to Google's maps. hitting the search button opens a new window with Google maps with arrows pointing to the various search results on the maps. There are no turn by turn directions, no follow me feature, but Google will give you a list of directions to get to the search point you click onto on Google maps. Perhaps with some paid for, maps program you might be able to utilize the gps feature on the Mifi more fully.
