Default Looking for a new GPS or an App for tablet
I like to Geocache, and my questions are about a new device to play the game. I don't have or want a smart phone.

My 14 year old handheld Garmin is dying. I am hoping to either upgrade the GPS or purchase an app for my Android tablet.
My current GPS is very basic, everything has to manually entered, one digit at a time. I want a GPS with the ability to download Cache co-ords directly from the website or to transfer them to a computer/tablet and then upload them. The ability to add maps would be nice, but not necessary. I have the tablet with alpine quest for off roading. The ability to export tracks would be nice.

My tablet is a Samsung Galaxy Tab A. It doesn't have a compass, but finds its way with gps satellites just fine. I have tried locating a cache using alpine quest, but I cannot get a tight enough zoom level to make it practical. Is there another mapping program that would support uploading co-ords and a tight zoom to help locate the cache?

I Start What I Finish!
