I was under the impression smart phone devices have a GPS like function: They triangulate from local cell towers and can get you pretty close, but do not actually use GPS satellite signals. Almost as good.
My kindle has no GPS function.
But I am a caveman and have an old fashioned cell phone. It rings and I can talk on it, that's about it. Therefore I need a direct from satellite no phone required solution.
