Yeah, we used the Good Sam version of the 7730 for one day and one day only, after entering the RV info it routed us on the most narrow, curve filled, dangerous roads we had ever been on.

Yes, we use RV Mode. You tell the GPS how long and how high you are, and the GPS routes you accordingly.

I donít have any experience with the Magellan GPS but I have used both the Rand McNally and the Garmin for RVís. To be honest, I think itís six of one half dozen of another. They both have their pluses and minuses. Buy the one you like, but know it will have mapping errors and at times screwy routes. Donít rely on any GPS for accuracy and always plan and verify the route to your destination.

Hereís some unsolicited advice, whichever GPS you buy, be sure to update the maps and download and read the manual before using it. It will make your GPS experience much better.

Have had GPS units for years. But nothing beats good old Smart Phones . We use Google Maps on the Samsung 6 phone for up to date accurate info. This last trip to Ludington, Michigan Garmin couldn't give us directions to two locations. Smart phone came thru 100%...

Just bought the Rand McNalley 7730 LTM and am using it on our first trip to WA Seems to be working well. I need to get the optional sun visor to cut down on the reflections.
