I'm starting to outfit my rig for overlanding and am looking for a good GPS unit. Recommendations and why would be greatly appreciated.
Yeah I'm kind of a novice with some of this stuff....as I've gotten older and need glasses to read, options with bigger screens are a must. I've wanted something along the lines of a 10inch screen (likely android) device, but I would like to have map data (offroad) on SD card media. Was wondering if any of the current tablets support sd cards. For pavement I just use the larger garmin GPS 2797. Or potentially a dedicated larger screen gps that support sd card media. At one point or maybe even now...I think garmin sold offroad topo map data by state on sd card media...but the point of frustration was ...what device could use this. I understand you can load data on to the device's hard drive... but I would like the utility of accessing the data in some manner without (having a cell connection, or having to load it on the device itself)...it that makes sense. (sd cards, external HD of some type). Obviously cell reception is limited. Or seems like with the current trend of memory shrinking in physical size...would be great if you could purchase a device with topo data fully loaded (but as I recall that's some serious data size).
For example would be nice to go off road, take my samsung android tablet, use one of the GPS apps, and had the map data sitting on a sd card (prepacked...not where I have to layout beforehand a trip or regional area I plan to be), yes I want it simple.
REALLY late to this but...which mounting bracket do you use? How did you anchor it?
