    Default Navigation for truck drivers (based on Andoroid OS) please help

    I supposed this topic has been covered but I am searching for simple explanation.
    Which truck navigation would you recommend? So far, I used Garmin DeZL 760, but I'm not happy and I would like to buy a new navigation based on Android operating system. I would like to buy navigation to which I can freely choose which app I want to install and use. I mainly drive in Eastern Europe (Poland, Czech Republic, Hungary).
    Would it make sense to buy a device like this for example:
    [Only registered and activated users can see links. ]

    Or maybe this one:
    [Only registered and activated users can see links. ]

    I know these devices are very cheap (and I suppose poor quality), but I doubt it is possible to use alternative applications on devices such as TomTom devices. Or is it possible?

    All the best.

    Prestigio is not of poor quality.

    A superfluous topic and question. Many times asked and written in various sections of the Forum
    Just a couple of topics from you:
    [Only registered and activated users can see links. ]

    These are also quality devices
    [Only registered and activated users can see links. ]
    But you can also use either a phone or a tablet.

    Only Garmin software is possible on Garmin devices, the same goes for TomTom.
    But for Android, there are TomTom apps.
    Before asking a question, know it's already discussed here and at 99.9% is not unique. Use search.

    Many questions become very arduous, a lot of time chewed deja vu...Since we have lost all the year of work and effort, many people have no will to answer the same questions again. Me neither. Use a search, please.

    Hello Boki_srb,
    Thanks for the quick answer. I'm sorry about duplicating the same questions. My question does not match issues from your link. I'm looking for a hardware that allows free installation of any android navigation app.
    The proposed "Wayteq X995" device seems interesting, but is based on an old version of Android 4.4 (Kitkat) that has been for eight years old.
    If you say "Prestigio" (GeoVision Tour 4 Progorod) is not a bad device I will try to buy that device.

    Here I found a few comments about that device:
    [Only registered and activated users can see links. ].

    Unfortunately, the comments are not positive when it comes to hardware itself.

    There are other models and other manufacturers...
    None of such stand-alone devices "does not burst from strength". There are two reasons for this:
    - they don't really need it and a price.

    The real advantage of these devices is that they are intended for this purpose, and thus have adequate holders, are easy to use and quite resistant to weather conditions (heat - sun).
    Otherwise, it is always a better choice of a (second hand) mobile phone or tablet.

    Boky thank you for the advice.
    About your thoughts on a used tablet: What do you think about the combination of a separate GPS receiver e.g.: Garmin GLO and a regular tablet?
    The Garmin Glo is not cheap, but a used tablet can be found at a bargain price..

    I would not go for a combination, it is better to choose a tablet from a reputable manufacturer that has a built-in GPS receiver.

    It's a bad choice of tablets.
    They are too old, relatively expensive (on ebay), they have an outdated androids.

    Boki, thank you again.
    OK, I will try to find some better tablet that has a built-in GPS receiver.
