Samsung verified my wifi TAB A tablet has a true GPS receiver chip in it. That 'A-GPS' term is from Apple and it has confused a lot or people... their cellular iPads contain a true GPS receiver chip and the assisted part just means Apple also uses triangulation from cell towers to help provide a faster fix than the GPS receiver chip would do on its own.might be due to A-GPS (aka aGPS). originally this meant Assisted-GPS and was a technology for using data from the internet to help the GPS achieve a faster initial satellite lock. but then some manufactures started using the same term to mean a GPS chip that ONLY works with the assistance of the network. so if you see a tablet with A-GPS you've got a 50/50 shot of whether it's a nice extra feature or if the tablet is completely useless off grid.
