We have this but we haven't used it yet. We have been using Onstar directions (but the free trial just expired) and google maps.

Used CoPilot for a 9k mile trip this past summer. Worked great.

As already stated they have come out with a RV version. They have sales all the time, I'll probably buy it when it goes on sale.

Oh, it's an app for phone or tablet.

We use the Rand McNally 7715 unit. Love it. Bought lifetime upgrades so I update it twice a year. It's got a screen big enough that even I can read it. Has lots of RV specific parameters to set if you can select "car" mode if you don't have your RV. Has lots of features I don't use all the time but I'm selective , depending on where we travel. If it's all new terrain, I turn on " Steep grade" and " sharp curve " warnings, otherwise they are off. It also has an add-on plug in to monitor traffic but I wave to bothered with it.

I've had Garmins, Magellans, Smartphone apps, GM (and Harley) built-in "Navinfotainment systems.
By far, I prefer Garmin. With Garmin, not only can I load many web-available custom POI files, but I can write my own using Garmin-provided software.
If you can set up and fill-in a spreadsheet you can make your own POIs, complete with proximity notifications, custom icons, and custom sounds. You can even write your own "tours". Of all the systems I've owned, only Garmin allows this.

GPS are great but they are only as good as the person who programmed them.. A podcast I listen too on Geocaching does a report of GPS mishaps. It blows my mind how far people will go and still NOT realize something is wrong.. People has: driven into the sea, off cliffs, into the desert... Onto piers. It is hilarious but kinda sad!

We use a Rand McNally RVND 7720 RV GPS and has worked great. At the time (Oct 2013) Amazon had lowest price. Updates are free and ours has undergone several significant upgrades at no added cost. Very easy to use.
