Is anyone running a standalone GPS, other than a phone with an app?
I am looking for something just to show me my location on the lake, which I am able to zoom in and out to get more or less detail. Will a regular car GPS like a Garmin work on the lake or will it be confused?
Would like something with a pretty good sized screen, say 4-5 inch. Don't need a chartplotter with all the depth details and such.
I suppose I could go with an ipad if I could find a usable app.
Pictures of your setups would be great.

I picked up a nexus 7 gen 2 tab on the cheap. It has 7" bright screen mounted on a ram mount. just get the navionics app. The HD version might not be worth paying more on a 7" screen so I would just go with the standard version. A tablet with 4g would be nice but you can download the maps for offline use too.
