2013 352qs navigation

Hi guys, I was wondering if the navigation system that comes installed in the coach is designed to give the best routes for rv driving. For example wider roads etc. The reason I ask is camping world was advertising a navigation system that gives the best routes for rv's. Any input would be appreciated.

Not sure about the GPS in the 2013 352qs, but the Camping World GPS is from Rand McNally. I have the RVND7710 and like it so far. Had an issue with the Car adapter but they sent me a new one. I was told it's been redesigned. You'll find that there are some that dislike it as well. The set up gives you various preferences. I know that the one in the brochure is the newer GPS from RM. It came out months after I bought mine. GPS units are like cameras. What's new on Monday is old news by Friday.

I wondered the same thing. I got it as an option in my 2013 350TS. In my opinion, it is not worth the month. Three reasons:
1. It's a Clarion Add-on and Clarion has no idea how to make a GPS system. Many software problems.
2. It isn't designed with RVs in mind and takes you on narrow dirt road even when it say it won't.
3. If you have the GPS on, you can't have the rear view camera showing your toad.

Even though I have the GPS option, I bought the rand mcnally GPS to put on the dash and have my screen showing the toad. The new GPS is worth it, in my opinion.
