Finally! They are available here on Amazon for $199. Get 'em while they're hot. I doubt they'll last too long (like usual).

Hi guys considering one of these instead of an ipad mini 4. Does anyone know if the compass issues with Android 6 have been fixed? And can anyone confirm that this tablet has the same capability as a "cellular" with regards to the GPS ability? Thanks.

first time that I have seen that question in 6 months----
long ago issue was resolved and really wasn't much of one then...

THERE is NO compass ISSUE !

it is not cellular s o unsure what you mean "same capability"
it has GPS ,
unlike apple stuff that MUST have cellular to have GPS...

Excellent news, thanks! Yeah I was thinking it needed cellular to have GPS, like my Samsung Note 8 Tablet (so not just Apple stuff).

Thanks again for confirming!

Oh no, really? That seems to completely contradict the previous poster?? You've just literally stopped me in my tracks from ordering one!

1 guy says different....

sorry , no attitude at all

simply poining out is is one the hottest most used tablets for the phantom.
that is why the OP and posted the topic.

the K1 has been sold out for a while and folks have been waiting for restock.

if one post about a tablet that is negative vs many positive leads you to not do something you would otherwise do that is on you ,
not me.

take care and have fun flying with what ever you buy.

The K1 is the first tablet I had for my P3 and the compass sucked....updated every time, tried all the fixes and still sucked...The compass was always at least 20deg's off and very sporadic...The only thing I miss is the HDMI out...I went to the Ipad pro and didn't look back...I personally think NVIDIA has people here pushing their junk...

Dude's trying to help you. Are you really that sensitive? If so, maybe the internet isn't for you.

fair enough,
but after a year or 2 around you hear the same question s every few weeks like clock work.

if you want a good android that works and is not over priced.
the k1 fits at 200 us.

I am simply answering a question .

also I am not a fan of folks starting unsubstantiated rumors and or issues without ever having used or owned something......

take it or leave it!
