    Hi, I have bought Sat Navs for a number of years and now that there a large selection of free sat nav apps out there I am now looking at moving over to one of them but I am not sure if they would work ok with a tablet.
    Could anyone recommend a cheap tablet that would work ok as a sat nav as I use my sat nav virtually every day to help avoid traffic, I have got a Huawei mediapad T3 tablet I got for free and have never used it but as I need a constant GPS/traffic alert connection this probably would not work?

    I think that T3 tablet would work, it's got GPS built-in. For any satnav apps, the device must have GPS if you're looking for other tablets There are some satnav apps that can be used offline, however for real time traffic information you would definitely need an Internet connection. That tablet does have wireless data and takes a SIM, or you could tether it from your phone via WiFi or Bluetooth.
