As of 2015, tablets that include GPS functionality at a relatively cheap price include the Nextbook NX700QC16G, the Kindle Fire HD, the Dragon Touch E70, Dragon Touch M8 and the Samsung Galaxy Tab 4. All of these tablets are priced at under $150 in the United States and contain built-in GPS functionality. Most cheap tablets with GPS typically have a smaller-sized screen ranging between seven to eight inches.
The Nextbook GPS-capable tablet also includes other features, such as an Android operating system and a Bluetooth 4.0 connection, though its screen resolution is limited to only 1,024 by 600 pixels. The Nextbook also includes a built-in memory space of 16 Gigabytes.
Other cheap GPS-capable tablets include other built-in features, such as an expandable data storage space using a micro SD card and a memory capacity of up to 1 Gigabyte using a DDR3 RAM chip. The Dragon Touch M8 tablet is also fitted with two cameras, one at the front and the rear.
Tablets that feature a built-in unassisted GPS system generally uses a combo chip instead of a chip dedicated to GPS. The combo chip typically has less performance compared to dedicated GPS devices, such as those sold by TomTom and Garmin.
