Default [Q] Dell Venue 7 Navigation inop!

Hey all, this is my first post on this forum. I bought a Dell Venue 7 for a tablet install into my vehicle to replace the radio. The tablet is in and everything is working but the navigation! When I try to input my route, google maps just sits in a constant "searching for location" state! I've searched this site and googled a ton and can't return any solution. I've checked the location services and tried my luck with some apps promising to fix gps location service, but no luck. The tablet is stock 4.4. Any ideas would be greatly appreciated!

I tested it using the app. It is only able to see one satellite at best. I downloaded "tetherGPS" and it is able to lock onto the position, but it won't display real-time position. It won't track it, I mean. Really irritating when trying to navigate because it won't track past my front door!

I have a Dell Venue 8 and gps work fine. I think you need internet to use google map. If you want to use in your car without internet then you need to download free or paid offline navigation app. BTW, I use Sygic offline map and it work very good.

Same here Google maps suck! Install sygic for your region.
