What tablet and mount are y’all using and with what map software? I hear Lifetime trail maps is the best. Any opinions appreciated.
I bought a Samsung tablet for use with Gaia software on a RAM mount. VERY disappointed with Android (how can people use this crap)What tablet and mount are y’all using and with what map software? I hear Lifetime trail maps is the best. Any opinions appreciated.
It's not the OS, it is the hardware. Until recently, most iPads did not have very good GPS (wifi only models didn't have any GPS) and need cell and/or wifi for location. Some of the newer iPads now come with better GPS and will function without cell service but their accuracy can be questionable.I am confused on the Apple issue. Works fine, works without cell, works. There is no magic to the OS. It is the apps. Google Maps, Alltrails, etc work with no cell. Just like other apps if you don’t have your route saved and you want to build new one with no cell…well you better have the map and the route ready to go.
I use both iPhone or iPad and also TRX7 from Magellan, which is an android based tablet custom solution. Neither is perfect, both are functional. And Ram mounts are great, usually you have to play around with the ram accessories to find the right fit.
Its the Samsung Tab A 8"Exactly on the cell service. What size tablet is that ur running I’m curious to how the magnets will hold. I’m also carrofew things on magnets an works great!
