Free maps on Google Play... have alook around
HEMA Explorere $29.99 click here This is the cheapest HEMA version. Make sure you download ALL the maps you need to your device.
Youtube Hema Explorer and watch the Pat Callinhan review... or the HEMA one..

Ozi- Explorer but you will need to buy the program and Maps...
OziExplorer click here go to PC

Memory Maps works well on a Windows platform software is free, maps cost...

Depends entirely on your nav needs.

Roads and towns or bush tracks?

Your only choices are Ozi Explorer or Memory Map because it's Windows 7. They will both cost around the same unless you can find some pirated maps in Ozi Explorer format. Personally, I have both and prefer Memory Map because it will work on Windows, Apple iPads/iPhones and Android devices so it is future proofed for whatever you get next. Does the tablet have an inbuilt gps? If not, you will also need a bluetooth gps to receive the gps signals from the satellites.

I will add a vote for Oziexplorer.

All three of us, myself and two sons, use it. I believe a couple of nephews do as well.

We have a box actually mounted in a double din space in the dash. Hate stuff stuck on the windscreen or loose in the cabin when on rough tracks etc etc. Also won't hit me in the face in a prang. But not cheap.

More choices than Ozi/Memory Map for Windows programs though many are not well known. One is TwoNav and associated product CompeGPSLand (spanish) - works fine. Also GlobalMapper, Arcview and MapInfo. There is also Trackranger.
I can only guess there are several more. Having said that Ozi or Memory map are probably best ones to look at for the average punter...just indicating there are in fact others.

Cheers

One way to run any Android system on Win7 is to download an App called ''bluestacks''
then load any Android Maps etc onto that program.

So far I haven't found any programs that will allow Apple ( ipad/ etc) to run on Windows easily.

Start with a map spec... needs regarding scale, topo, structures (inc gates), seasonal closures, track/road ratings, POIs & whatever else. Then see what software & hardware will run the maps that qualify.
