Can anyone tell me how GPS chips generally works in Windows8 Tablets? As far as I can tell Tablets do not have a separate GPS chip like those in handheld GPS receivers - It seems to be combined into the Network chips. With my current tablet, gps doesn´t start without first logging into the network with a mobile SIM card. They seem to first get a fix according to the location of the last successful IP Address login and then refine the position using triangulation from satelites.
I would be grateful if anyone with experience with such devices could clear this up for me.
