HOW WE DO IT PRESENTLY:
RV is a 5th wheel pulled with a 1-ton Dodge diesel dually. Our trips are usually 4-8 months.
DW is the navigator and has a Jotto Desk that our laptop (Windows XP) sits on.
Laptop has DeLorme Street Atlas installed. While planning a trip we cut the trip into several legs, each leg to someone's house where we will stay or some major attraction. Each leg may take us 2-3 weeks to complete.
We do geocaching along the way and in an area if we are staying 2 or more days. We download cache locations from Geocaching.com using Pocket Queries, then load them into the mapping program with GSAK.
When we are near a cache site we use a handheld Garmin Etrex to actually locate the caches.
WHAT WE'D LIKE TO DO:
We'd like to use a smaller vehicle for caching locally. We feel the Dodge is too big for this. We have smaller vehicles available to use both on and off road but they have no where to easily carry the laptop......it gets too hot to sit on DW's lap.
Ideally I'd like to use a 10" tablet if we can get the Street Atlas program installed on it and would be able to exchange files that we have on the laptop. A tablet might even be easier to use with the RV for navigating and caching.
A different but similar mapping program might be acceptable.
If anyone is doing anything similar to this I'd really appreciate any
information you'd be willing to share.
