    I'm noticing it's impossible to find for some program the GPS chip...some site are telling in the specs that MIPAD owns Gps and aGps, others say no.
    On xda someone is telling it has, but i'm not able to check it with GPS status&toolbox cause it's crashin' and google navigation can't find GPS chip...so someone knows for sure if there's GPS in this device?
    Thanks!

    Oleksandr Xiaomi thanks a lot for the reply...is it possible to see this written somewhere?
    So the teardown all around the internet shows a wrong hardware...that's why i was asking :)

    Couldnt you make your phone a hotspot and pick up WiFi on the mipad and wouldn't that pick up your location?

    meh, you and i know thats not accurate enough! i find it silly that a dedicated gps device can be used via bluetooth, but the gps in a smartphone cant..
