Default [Q] IdeaTab A1000 GPS

Hey guys,
I'm looking to implement a tablet in my car. The Ideapad A1000 seems like a good alternative to some crappy chinesse no-name out there at a decent price.

But I'm woundering about the quality of the GPS? Is it good enough to use as a "in car" GPS or should I opt out for the A3000?

Thanks!

Well, TBH, I got the initial GPS lock with GPS Test, but it has to stay near the windsheild to get a lock.

But, the most problem I got is with the Bluetooth. It keeps on disconnecting so I can't get a decent read from my OBDII ELM327 device...

It's still a good tablet for the kids, and most likely better than most tablet at the same price, but just not for what I need!
