Tablet in the role of GPS?

Hello, dear harrowdene!

The question is primarily addressed to abramovay. There arose a need in a car GPS Navigator. Analysis of proposals on the market showed that the difference in the cost of the average Navigator and mid Android tablet from China virtually no. The idea to purchase a tablet for the position of Navigator. Reflections are as follows:


+ Tablet much more functional

+ The tablet looks neater

+ Tablet you can carry with you when not not being used in the role of Navigator

+ The tablet can lead useful car notes (consumables, gasoline, etc.)

— Most likely the GPS in the tablet is weaker (maybe that is podkluchenie external antenna?)

— I do not know, as is the case with navigation software and maps for Android.


Primarily interested in map of Ukraine.


I sincerely hope for your sensible advice.

The same app on Android, if you take the 3g the additional tube you will expect, even Yandex and Google have navigation software. After download cards work almost offline. And what about the GPS unlike the navigation through a-gps that is getting data from the Internet plus help navigate through 3g and Wi-Fi finds the location for 5 seconds. Me the tablet almost completely replaces a laptop in terms of entertainment. And Internet and books and movies and communication.

1. Power receiver will be enough(there is really a windshield that screening can check from any phone or tablet)
2. Choice of navigation software(like cards under them) under Android is more than enough.
Very important note! Consider fastening, so as to keep it on the passenger is very uncomfortable(opinion will always go down, or you need to go only for the voice prompts). To carry a specially trained person for holding the tablet in front of the eyes is also problematic.

Was recently the same choice, I bought a tablet. Happy. First, they wanted Chinese, and even 7-inch, but then still bought a 9.7-inch ASUS. GPS catches perfectly even from home, not in the car. For Android there are plenty of navigation software, including cracked. The only advantage of a regular car GPS Navigator see in a convenient mount.

In kacestvenno staff is integration with eco-system (climate control, rear view camera and other buns).
On my wheel there are buttons that allow you to control without interruption.

The tablet intake should be worse than NK, and there he is great — my Photon catches satellites even at home, not to mention the car, and the clouds, the trees did not interfere.

I tried Acer iconia tab as a replacement for the Navigator — drove the route 2 thousand kilometers one way.
\r
From pluses — awesome big screen, very easy to see cards, as well as a large selection of different navigation software
\r
Of the minuses — without a co-driver is not very comfortable to hold 10" in hand and steer at the same time — I was lucky, rode together.
And the battery goes down very quickly, so wlucli it only the disputed points and when in an unfamiliar city went — there it is all the time kept enabled.
\r
From Kazan to Elista in the end, the battery withstood 20 hours of pure journey with stops for a snack.
\r
However in Volgograd 40 minutes it recharge

Recently bought a viewsonic viewpad 10s, including as a Navigator in the car. big screen, the charge from 12 volts (easy to charge in the car — I made the charge in a simple current limiter, at a cost of somewhere in the 25 UAH total cost). Yandex maps work perfectly (just to googlechrome worked normally why I need to put custom firmware), Kyivstar free traffic to them. Go to me here for such a holder in the car. IMHO, much better than just Navigator.
