With the ViewRanger software ($15 with full U.S. topo maps), we're able to download topo maps via USB connection or Wi-Fi and have them stored for a trip. (A live data connection is needed to add additional maps not in the tablet memory.) We can also download premade trail routes in .gpx format. These screenshots give some example of the ability to display several types of maps, including USGS topo maps, shaded terrain, and satellite imagery. (ViewRanger is available in both Apple and Android versions.)
