Has anyone has success using an specific iPad Navigation App (iPad is WiFi only) with a Verizon MiFI 8800L Hotspot? Currently trying to run Apple Maps or Google Maps over the iPad while connected to the hotspot is very inaccurate, often times a couple miles behind. Does anyone have any suggestions? We would really like to rely on a hotspot to provide internet and GPS signal to the WiFi iPad and not have to install a modem or get a cellular iPad as those are not options for us.
psituser, we definitely want to ensure we provide hotspot so you can rely on via jetpack. To confirm, what speeds are you receiving on the jetpack? -Lorenzo
Speeds in two locations
8.99mbps download/13.9mbps upload
5.23mbps download/1.86mbps upload
Do you have any apps/settings/suggestions to ensure our users can use GPS navigation on their iPad connected via cellular to provide accurate navigation?
Those are some decent speeds. Do you have a cellular phone as well? Have you tried any other Wi-Fi connection to see if the GPS is more accurate?
Yes phone or iPad over that wifi GPS still lags behind. Using a cell phone on Verizon it works just fine but using an iPad or Phone WiFi only over the hotspot is very slow. Not sure if there is any recommended App that transmits NMEA data? I saw some posts that because the Hotspot does not send that over wifi it could cause issues?
It does sound like you are on to something. We do not have any recommendations. You can try other GPS applications like Waze or others out there.
