    If I attach a GPS, e.g. a dongle, can I set the location services to use that?
    The current WiFi scheme is useless in my area & where I'll be using this most (on a boat).

    FYI the Staples writeup on the Surface 3 claims it has GPS/Assisted GPS/GLONASS. I sent an email to their customer service about this 3 weeks ago, but, it's still up.

    Thanks, DaveBo

    Surface 3 with Windows 10

    The Surface 3 with LTE does has GPS like functionality via the LTE radio....the WiFi only does not but you can use a dongle
