So I have had my gps for quite the while. Not an expert but feel pretty good. I am getting ready to buy a tablet of some sort, I want to get one that I can put my Garmin SW on and carry with me on my scooter. For longer trips so I can add/edit tracks and for ease of use when it comes to looking at stuff.

Any suggestions?

What software do you want to use? Mapsource? Basecamp?

You'll need a Windows (full version, NOT RT) tablet.
I have Mapsource on an 8" tablet. Mapsource, being older software, is not touch friendly.
I suggest a 10" tablet with a 64Gb SSD and a Bluetooth mouse.
The Acer Switch is getting good reviews.
