    Default Is it wise to use a Tablet as navigation device?

    AoA friends.
    I am planning to get a 7 inch Chinese Tab (most likely Ainol or Ampe) in a range of 15-16k. Main purpose is to fit it in my car for using Sygic for navigation and occasionaly for audio / video. And if possible, i shall also use OBD data display using softwares like Torque pro etc.

    I just want to get feedback from other users that is it a workable plan? any other option?

    Just download sygic. You get all pakistan maps on it. Every city, nook and corner.
    Turbo lag is like foreplay. You know it's coming. And it's gonna be good.

    I suggest you buy the Samsung Galaxy Tab 2 "7 inch" (Rs. 16,000) to use it as your entertainment system in your car.
    I have been using it for Movies, music, browsing & Navigation (Sygic) for the last 1 year.

    Sygic is the only option when it comes to navigation. Google maps navigation does not work in Pakistan unless u root the phone or tab.

    Why is it a limitation? You don't need to be online for using Sygic.

    BTW Tab 2 also comes in a GSM version also but it is around 24000/-.
