Exactly what the title says. What tablet does everyone recommend in a prerunner for GPS type stuff? I'm a strictly Android guy, I hate Apple products so keep that in mind. Also, what cases do you guys use?

Ipad is your only option for Lead Nav. Doesnt really matter other than that. Get the same as whatever your phone is.

Naw.

I'd jump off a bridge before using any Apple products.

Phone is an Android too.......
my tablet I have now has Backcountry Navigator Pro and it works fine, I was just looking to see what everyone else uses.

We have the Samsung Galaxy Tab S 8.4" which is similar to the one you have and we love it. We've used it for gps and now I mostly use it for movies and school stuff but I plan to put a bigger Samsung tablet in the new truck just because I know they are a great tablet. I'm biased when it comes to gps, I still plan on running a Lorance gps in the new truck.

I hate apple as a company as well, but they make everything so easy. Picked up a "refurbished" ipad off amazon for like $200, works great for my use with motion x.
No experience with any other tablets.
