    Another IPS diasplayed  tablet, this time by Lenovo, so you should be sure that the screen you'll be looking at will be crisp and clear. Like the DJC it also has a 1200 x 800 pixel screen resolution so you are getting better than HD.

    The immediate bonus of this over the DJC though is the internal 16gb storage, so you have double what the DJC offers and this should be more than enough for the apps, maps you will need. We still suggest an SD card with all your favourite audio books and music on though as the 16GB can easily be filled up with audio files.

    You get your usual features, mic jack, microSD card slot, GPS, and even micro Sim card slot so you can plug in a sim and be connected all the time.

    So you're interested in using a small tablet as your cars navigational tool and car stereo, this Lenovo might be perfect for fitting in to your cars dash and replacing your current car stereo entirely or by using a tablet holder connected to your dash or windscreen.

    We would rank this the same as the DJC and it's a very similar price too.

    Pros
    • Great screen resolution and IPS display
    • Fairs a little better than the DJC when direct sunlight is on it
    • Fast tablet with double the space storage as the DJC, with 16GB (more like 12GB once you've installed Android and other needed apps)
    • Good brand name
    Cons
    • There are a lot of Lenovo models so make sure when you order accessories that you order the screen protector, bag, etc for the exact model you have, just check in the box when you receive it.
    Verdict

    Another great little offer by Lenovo which we think would suit your cars needs easily. You can navigate in offline maps or even use the inbuilt GPS to use google maps or similar mapping applications.

    You can sync with bluetooth to your phone to make/receive calls and we really like it
