I use both Airnav Pro and the Garmin app. But to use them, you need to pick up XPlane to GPS, which mocks the GPS on your android device to think it's X-Plane. You can also use Google Maps or any others you can find with it, and it works great.

If you're willing to have a look in the iOS world, XMapper TNG is an excellent, low cost solution.

Provides a moving map, radio and autopilot interface and joystick capability - great for flying on a laptop as you will always have the joystick with you!

I signed up for navigraph charts and currently enjoying the beta of moving maps. This is by far the best implementation I have used. Any device will work as long as it has a web browser! The airplane is displayed right on the chart. But this only works for the ifr plates but I started using it this week and it is definitely worth it.

A couple of things that work well for me:

This is a Java utility that runs a web server that just broadcasts X-Plane's coordinates on your local network and displays your plane's position and track on Google maps. You can view it on the X-Plane PC or on any tablet (Android or iOS). Brilliant.

Then, there's Avare:

This is a complete real-world (and sim-world) flight-bag app for free. Receives coordinates from X-Plane and displays on sectionals, etc. Set up flight plan with a few taps. Airport info and diagrams, and lots more. Brilliant.
