I recently purchased a Samsung 7" tablet thru Sprint for $50 plus a two yr contract for $15/mth. Has a GPS and Wifi but will connect to Sprint when Wifi is not available. Has a sim card slot for use in Europe with their data connections. Bought it for that purpose but have not gone to Europe. Uses Google maps.

You need data connection for both though.

And the full size iPad is probably too big to mount on a dash, in fact may be illegal in some states to obscure so much of the windshield.
Thanks - I'll check into voice turn by turn. I didn't know that the iPad did that. I have typed in addresses for directions before, but just looked at the map screen for the route.

I don't set it on the dash. I set it on the console so that I can prop it up. Still not a very good spot for viewing. Thinking of getting a cup holder mount
