    Most (if not all) Smart Phones and Tables have a Built-In GPS receiver, So can you use these devices to perform Satnav / Navigation functions ?, the answer is yes, as long as you have the correct App. installed, The vast majority of these devices run either Android or Apple's iOS operating systems, here is list of available Apps, (Note not all Apps are available on both platforms and not all are downloadable for free :-
