Just starting out with my first Android tablet

Which have you found to be better/best?

I would recommend that you check out one of the many threads on this in the 'Laying Down Tracks' section.

You can use the free open street maps with it, so you have a complete offline navigation setup for all around the world. The osm for my part of the world are quite good, never had a problem and I did around 1000km of navigation with it.

I use Waze. It's networked and provides a good bit of real time information updates by other users.
