    OK so I have Garmin maps on a micro SD card for snowmobile/ATV trails that i would like to use on a GPS app on my tablet offline. It is an android tablet and will be used offroad, not for driving directions.

    Also, I have heard it is best to use the Garmin GLO when using an android tablet for best accuracy, anyone used it before and is it worth it?

    Thanks to anyone who replies for the help!

    I don't know of any App. for Andriod that will view Garmin maps in their normal format, there are several Apps. (OSMand, Maps.Me etc.), that will view Open Street View maps but not Garmin's own maps

    I woukd try out the tablet's internal GPS before purchasing the Garmin Glo, I have several smart phones / tablets that have very sensitive GPSRs that I think would out perform the Glo
