    Question OT: cheap tablet dedicatd to GPS use?

    I sometimes use my precious N7 as a GPS in the car. Emphasis on precious!
    My wish is to find a cheap (smaller, worry-free) Android device with onboard GPS chip to dedicate almsot exclusively to navigation plus a handful of apps.

    Doable?

    Why not a cheap GPS: reading some reviews some are not even that good a recalculating routes when going off-track, which I find ridiculous. Could it be an on-board computing power limitation, perhaps..?

    Well, cheaper than our cherished N7s! There is cheap out there but usually no GPS.
    A bit smaller too. 7 in. on dashboard is a wee bit big ( to me).

    I would look at a stand alone GPS, I've used a Garmin for years without problems.
    It's as quick to recalculate a route as my Samsung S3.

    If it is just going to be a GPS why not get a dedicated unit? Built in maps are much better than downloading. Also, you can get a number of units with lifetime free map upgrades.

    As far as dedicated units experiencing problems with recalculating routes when going off-track, my Garmin Nuvi does not seem to have that issue.
