Cheap EFB tablet

Recommended Posts

Hi there,

I'd like to buy a cheap (very cheap) tablet I can use as a little EFB for charts and the like. The Amazon Fire 7 looks promising, but I'd like to know if anyone knows anything even cheaper, even crappier?

I use a 3 year old Lenovo tablet (Android, 10inch display) for Navigraph and also Sky Demon and VAC's for IRL planning. Works good. But I would def. Swap that one for a new iPad if I had the budget...

@WilliamS, why buy something cheap when there’s a better and probably cheaper solution? Instead of a tablet buy another monitor. Far more area and no lag time with your sim.

I even found some for just over 60 quid.

Do you know if the EFB your looking at supports Amazon Fire?   Amazon OS is somewhat of a closed OS (unless you can root and put on your own OS, which may not work very well--I speak from experience).  Amazon has it's own store, so you can try looking there and see if there are any...maybe I should do that someday.
