I bought a 1st gen 32 BG Nexus 7 in May and have used it extensively since then. Good readability, excellent GPS and very stable.

I've run several apps but have settled on Garmin Pilot for now.

The latest ipad mini is now out with a higher resolution display then before. I don't know if it will be any better in sunlight. But if the new mini is like the original it doesn't have a GPS receiver built in (unless there is a 3G version).
What kind of GPS issues?

I returned my Nexus 7 due to Bluetooth pairing issues with the Garmin GDL-39. The iPad mini I replaced it with ran great right out of the box and has ever since.

Other than the bluetooth problem, I had no problem with the Nexus.

Do a google search on Nexus 7 second generation GPS issues. Seems that the GPS doesn't work well or not at all.
