So I got a new Samsung Galaxy Tab 4 7.0 WiFi only but my car has hot spot built in so I connect the tab to the hot spot
This Tab is not a power house and I'm ok with that I just want to keep in my car for maps and navi and some other little things like that. But how do I run the Waze APP on it when I look it up in play store I get a not compatible with this device??? Any chance I can side load the APK if I root it?

Signed,
wazed and confused

Dont have to be rooted. Enable unknown sources in security section in settings.

Heres the apk. I just downloaded it on the s4 and uploaded. Put it on your sd card, navigate to it with file manager and tap it and press install

Whether it works or not dunno. reviews on playstore have people saying because their tab has no carrier

You have to be rooted. Just download and install it on a rooted device and with a file explorer go to /data/app and all your free market apps will be there. Your paid apps are in /data/app-asec/ but their not in apk format. But if you use a app to back them up to sd card itll save them in apk format.
