I also have the Garmin 760 for RV
Has everything you mentioned.
Took it last Oct on a six state trip and worked like a charm.

However always take a backup that does not involve electronics. Old fashion atlas is what I carry.

When I got my 760 I spent about 3 weeks playing with it at home to learn the features I wanted to use.


I planned my trip to Spartanburg SC first. Then searched for campgrounds with the features I wanted. Then knowing it was too long for me to drive in one day I found out how to find where I would be in 5 1/2 to 6 hours. Then I figured out how to find a roadside rest so I could sleep free over night. It found me one about 6 hours from home with no problems. It also showed a few cg about 6 hours out in case I wanted to stay a couple of nights instead of just an overnight stay. I then played using a few other features I might have wanted. I was very impressed with it. It just takes a little playing to get use to all the features that it offers.
