Update:

I purchased a Samsung Tab A 10" tablet ($180 @ Costco), two 64GB micro SD cards ($24 @ Costco) a RAM cup holder/ball mounted tablet piece thingy ($79 at Fry's Electronics online), and a 5 year subscription to GAIA ($159).
Just bought the 8" yesterday going to work with it today
I'm excited about the GAIA maps even more now

Cool...just did a little day off noodling on GAIA, as I've been playing with that application on my iPhone, and it seems pretty cool and user friendly.

Also, here's a link to a lot more info on GAIA than you might need, but eat what you take and leave the rest:

Then, I just found this cool little video! 

Great for guys like us (he has some gray in his beard, and s-p-e-a-k-s-s-l-o-w-l-y...lol;D



Been using this with my iPad mini, and recently in Sedona, I like it! Simple enough. Just ensure it's synched to your GPS device if not GPS enabled. I have the basic subscription, downloaded maps I needed in the area.

Excellent, you are going to enjoy using it!  We certainly do.
