My apologies if this question seems trivial for this forum. I recently rooted my 3G Samsung Galaxy 3 Tablet SM-T217S in an effort to get rid of all of the Sprint bloatware. Is it better to simply to overwrite the entire Android OS and start with a fresh tablet? There isn't any data that I care to keep, so a complete wipe is fine. I really only want to use the tablet as a GPS-enabled map and a music file server for off-roading. Any advice and assistance in getting to the next step is greatly appreciated.

I don't have this device but, the following threads would be a good start for determining what you can or cannot do regarding a Custom ROM. Don't be afraid to ask for some member guidance within one of them too.
