All that I need for “get me outa here” is a map, common sense and observation.  Worst case is you backtrack and find a way around.
I tend to agree, but am spoiled by the ease of using cell phones these days.  It wasn't all that many years ago that paper was all we had in any case and it still will get us by, but these days we have cell phones and all their mapping capabilities to bail us out.  That said, the notion that we need to resort to a laptop in to reroute so we can have our gps yammering in our ear at every turn seems a little over the top to me.  Different strokes though.

I have used a refurbished Dell Venue which is a lot cheaper than a Surface and has given me good service.
