Hi Texta, i use memory map, and australian topo maps, both are free to download via the play store app,just type the names in the search function. Another good gps app is waze it even has all police cameras as well and is free. I hope this was a big help to you, Cheers Noel. thumbsup

ok thanks very much for that i will check them out . i had a heap of problems today trying to download and install a trend micro android security thing i bought from hardly normal . i ended up clicking on a site that turned out to be very dodgy to say the least .they were pretending to be trend micro site but when the fellow on the phone told me he needed another 199 bucks to sort out my issue i realised the phone number on the dodgy site was even more dodgy and after an hour or so in chat with telstra got it sorted so all good now , but i have had enough of the tablet for one day .

I use google maps for all my nav. I have a handheld gps for backup. Just view the area you plan to go beforehand and it is retained for about a month in memory. Out in the field the detail is great and it works off gps so you can always see yourself as the blue dot on the screen
