I have the Garmin RV760 LTM and it is great. Had the Rand McNally 7710 and it was the biggest price of junk I have ever had. After 3 units totally failing the most R McN would do was to replace it for the forth time with another new one. I sold it in Ebay for $200 and was thrilled to get rid of it and RMcN

I agree with Marty in the RM GPS. I didn't have mine fail but the power cord shorted out and blew every fuse it could. They replaced it and gave me free upgrades. I will say the new firm ware fixed a lot if the issues. It is still hard to see in the sunlight. I really don't know what I wait recommend. I use my phone as a back up.

Agree - the RM GPS is crap
Garmin is just about the best out there in dedicated units HOWEVER, a cell enabled iPhone or iPad is just as good or better but you will have to watch your data consumption

Same here. Great unit. I just wish the suction cup mount would stick to the dash. I mount it on the DS window instead.

Not sure about your dash, but my 2014 has the wood grain dash and my suction cup on my garmin sticks to it great. I stick it on the flat surface on the left hand side just above my vent and just below the bottom gauge.

I also bought the rand 7720 and it is Garbage. Same complaints as above. Rand replaced my first one that died. A month later the replacement died. They will not refund my money and i'm just not into the replacement game and time wasted on emails/phone calls/ etc. Just cutting my losses and throwing it out. We use our iphone. Mostly hassle free so far. Only one issue with a low overpass, but that was no biggie.

I don't have the wood grain dash. I have the ugly dash(my per name for it). I was always trying it on the right side, but it was always blocking something behind it. I didn't try the left side....could be all the Armor All I use to.
