    I got a Samsung Galaxy Tab A8 for Christmas and I love it. But I have been trying for a good part of today to find a GPS/Compass app that works, but none do. Is there a setting somewhere that needs to be changed or does this tablet not have any GPS or Compass capability?

    Duplicate threads merged. I'm not sure that device has a compass. The specs only mention an accelerometer: https://forums.androidcentral.com/e?...token=9WMp9sOc. It does have GPS, though.

    Install GPS Status & Toolbox and you can see what's happening with the GPS. There's no compass.
