Forest River Gps

I have a forester with in dash GPS. Unfortunately, it is mounted flat and not tilted toward the driver. ?It is difficult to see detailed info while driving. ?Also almost impossible to see wit sunglasses on. ?Anyone else experience this? Any solutions?

Yep, but it does its job pretty good. I upgraded the software and added the satellite tuner features and it works well! I am considering adding a docking station for my iPad so I can use it for a GPS also....

That's why I have a Garmin sitting on the dash.

Ourflat. When you have time, could you see if your new software update can find this road for me. Wilshire Rd, West Jordan, UT. Our mapping software was last updated in 2012. Did you get the 2015 map software update? Also, do you have the in dash Jensen radio?

Boso, do you have the latest 2015 map software update? Just trying to find someone that has the latest update to see if it can find Wilshire Rd, West Jordan, Utah. This road is in a new neighbor as of 2013. If so, I may update our map software. Thx, Ben

Ben, I am picking up my coach this Friday. I am going to try and download update and save file for those who missed out on the 30 day update issue. Not sure if I can do it but I will try. I'm going to get a couple more micro sd cards and copy my files to them and then try to update all the cards if the other option doesn't work. I report back on my success.
