On a lark, and courtesy of some Adv Rider posts on phones as GPS devices and a Samsung special (phew, the stars were aligning to get me to spend some hard earned!), I bought a tablet.
|Just like a phone, only even bigger and not a phone!|
I then copied over one of my TT2000 maps and went out to the shed to compare the tablet to the GPS.
|Screen is just slightly bigger...|
The software seems to work quite well, but I've yet to try to use it in anger. Theoretically, it should also be able to send directions to my Sena as well.
There's a fair bit more detail available from the larger screen too:
Another thing it will be useful will to store our TT plan and the checkpoint pictures. I can see me arranging the pictures in order and just flicking through to the next one at each checkpoint so I know what to look for with other information like distances and next fuel stop etc.
