iPad, iPad, iPad.

You could get an Android device for half the price but you'll have to replace it at least twice as often.

Biggest problem with apple stuff, other than the eye watering price, is that the user interface is as user friendly as a cornered rat.
There is a good reason that when Google were ripping off iOS they opted for 3 buttons rather than one!

There are other issues too - no GPS on an even nearly sensibly priced one, no SD card slot, they send ALL your data to apple who then have rights to do whatever they want with it, and when apple think they need more money, sorry, deem it too old they just cease support for it. Also, have you tried to use an apple product on a slow network? Effectively nothing works as it is constantly waiting for a reply from apple mission control. OK support can be patchy for Android tablets but who cares when you can buy a new one for a little over a hundred quid that will be very nearly as fast as a brand new iPad that costs 3x the price! Having said that that I still use my Mk1 Nexus 7 as a backup in the plane. Works very well for navigation even with traffic display on; it's just a bit clunky when planning.

Our recommendation (iPad, iPad, iPad) is based on many years of having tens of thousands of customers split fairly evenly over both platforms. It gives us a great perspective as to which camp has the most problems overall.
