    Okay, neither Gaia or Backcountry Navigator are available on Windows, so it looks like I'll give up my Surface Go wishes.

    I do use an iPhone and it looks like Gaia will support CarPlay early in 2019 (or so they say) which means I should be able to view the app/maps from my in-dash screen, which means I won't even need a tablet.

    If I do want to do more than what I can do on CarPlay, I can use my phone, a laptop using a browser (with downloaded maps), or my son's iPad.

    Thanks for the advice!

    Edit: meant to say that I'll also try out downloaded Google maps. If I decide I really like Gaia, I'll probably do a membership.

    Google maps is limited though. GAIA you can overlay national geographic maps, Forest service maps, national park maps, etc. GAIA is much more powerful for offroad travel. Also has BLM maps so you know where you can set up camp legally.

    I tried offline google maps last weekend and it sucks dick. Iíll never use it again. Iíll stick with Gaia that Iíve been using for 6 years.
