Cannot pair GoTenna on tablets anymore


I remember the gotenna was usable from a Nexus 7 tablet doesn’t seems to be possible anymore.

Doesn’t work on a very recent galaxy tab either.

Both device have GPS, I see no reason why it wouldn’t work.

Should I keep trying on other tablets model?



We have verified functionality on the Nexus 5 phone, Galaxy Tab A and Samsung Tablet S3.

If you have further questions or require more guidance, send me an email at



Never tried it on the iPad before, but just downloaded from the App Store and it works on the latest iOS 12.1.4. This is a good option to have if you need to send a lot of longer messages for some reason. I have a Bluetooth key board that makes that easier, so will have to try to see if it and the GTM co-exist, which I expect they will.


Which Galaxy Tab? I have both the S3 and S4 with no issues. An older Tab A also works.


Confirm it works well for me on iPad


Nexus 7 HD is Google standard hardware, it makes me wonder how many other tablet it’s not working with.

Galaxy tab A is also super standard.

BTW managed to make it work on an Amazon Fire
