    so I was going to get a sat nav for the car. I noticed that there is a flap that opens upwards in the centre of the dash that fits my playbook. given that I have the plugs to charge and an aux in for the stereo, I reckon I could fit a playbook in the dash. I could have a ton of music etc, but it would need a sat nav. are there any good sat nav apps, either free or paid for, as a playbook now is a similar cost to a decent sat nav in the uk and would be really cool to have dash mounted.....

    Magallan doesnt require a data plan. You 'cache' an area.

    You also can do that with Google maps.

    Osmand works ok too, there is a paid version and a free version , and you download the maps that you want, no data plan required, so you don't have to bridge your phone. I've been using a windshield mount for my PB for about 3 months now, awesome media centre for my commute.

    I think Magellan is the only one that keeps the screen on. Osmand won't keep the playbook awake when I use it, nor will google maps

    Just use an app in the background that will keep the screen on. You can find several of those apps in the Appworld.
