You want to be a little bit careful about buying a no-name or an off brand 
device thinking you will run the iFly software on it.  My first Android was 
purchased 3 years ago specifically for that purpose.  When I loaded the iFly 
software on it, I found that the screen mapping was totally hosed and unusable. 
 iFly said that if there were a bunch of them out there and I could send them 
one to test with, they would make an attempt to patch their software to deal 
with the display driver for the unit, but for a cheap one off, I'd do better to 
buy a used name brand unit as you are guaranteed their software will work on a 
name brand unit.

I've been flying the IFLY navigation software on my IFly 720 for
several years now and love it. I've been wanting to move to a larger
screen for wider area coverage, especially now that I have in flight
weather and traffic with the ADS-B Stratux-flightbox that I purchased
at Oshkosh on their $150 special. Now they also have a $20 add on to
a VFR subscription that allows you to run their software on 4
devices. I checked around and found a 10.1 inch Android tablet at
Best Buy for $69.
must have been on sale. It is now $99) It's a bit large for the KR
cockpit but I like it so well I'll make it work. It is quite bright
in all but direct sunlight. It has built in WIFI / GPS / Bluetooth
so it is wireless between the ADS-B and the tablet.

Anyone looking for a "cheap" naviation setup, a cheap Android tablet,
an $89 subscription, and a $150 dual band ADS-B kit will put you in
the pilot seat. IFLY is selling the dual band ADS-B unit fully
assembled and ready to plug and play for $200. You could have a
backup using your smart phone for no extra cost.

I think I'm going to like this setup as well as my fully pneumatic
tail wheel. :-)
