So...I think I am going to return it and make a setup based around a Google Nexus 7 tablet. This would include:
  • Google Nexus 7
  • Otterbox Defender Case
  • Gaia GPS which allows for the downloading ot USGS topo maps, import/export of GPX files, tracks, etc.

Hi, you may have the answer I've been looking for as this is exactly what I want to do. (

Could you please expand a little more on how you connected this up? Is the Gaia processing the moving map which is then displayed on the tablet? Is it just a handheld GPS, and if so, how do the two communicate? Would I be able to use the built in GPS on a tablet, or better yet my puck style, USB connected device? I assume your set up is limited to certain types of maps or Topo's, depending on what software your running, but are you aware of any that will work in Mexico? Thanks for the help........Arctic Traveller
