Most tablets and other electronic devices these days do have internal GPS. In fact, if they are cell enabled then they definitely have internal GPS. I used the mobile app all over the Caribbean and Bahamas where we wouldn't see cell reception or wifi for days or even weeks and the Navionics app followed us perfectly.
