Are you using Google Maps or did you find and use a app?

Did you know that in some states it is illegal to use suction mounts to the windshield? Minnesota for one state because it blocks your view. I bet someone put their GPS or IPhone under their rear view mirror to cause this flap.

Has anyone checked out the prices of the Garmin RV 760LMT lately? It's all over the board for prices. One day at Amazon I'll see it for $383 then $353 then $299 again back to $374. Other sites $319+shipping/tax all the way to $600. I guess it Rving season time. For now I'll use my IPhone till RV toy buying season is over and the price comes down.

It takes so long to recalculate (BTW which it will not tell you its doing like the Garman does) Later RJD
I also had a Magellan GPS. I had the Roadmate 1700. A few years ago we took a trip to The Texas Hill Country for the Month of February. The Magellan did get us to our campground in a round about way. But, the directions for any locations or points of interest were wrong 100% of the time while in Texas. We wanted to see and do things in Texas so we finally ordered a Garmin and had it sent to the campground. I was correct 100% of the time. I would not recomment a Magellan.

I use the Magellan iPhone app. 2 GB app has all roads loaded so no need for data (or a cell signal). It's not RV specific (ie no height restrictions, etc...) but I didn't buy it for RVing, I got it for using while travelling for work to avoid data roaming rates using the built in apps.

Since I had it anyways, I use it when towing too. As much as I'd prefer an RV aware app, I can't justify buying one when I already have this one.

Ford...I'm not a Mac guy but I use CoPilot on my android because it uses downloaded maps rather than relying on a connection. I like it a lot and use it in conjunction with my Garmin for alternate routes and on our scooters etc.
It IS available as an apple app. Worth a look.

I have the Garmin RV 760LMT and like its features. For longer trips I've plotted my trip with Google Maps as well as researched things on line. I've then set up my trip in the Garmin free Basecamp program for the PC to fit the trip routing I planed out on line. Once done, I transfer this route to the RV 760LMT with the stops I want and the trip routing confirmed by the 760 for my RV. The Basecamp program isn't as intuitive as I'd like but I was able to come up with a route I liked. What's great, is mid-trip changes are handled well by the 760.


Garmin has a new GPS RV unit called the RV 660LMT. It is slightly smaller, lists for less money than the 760 and has some additional routing options by touching the screen to drag to the new route. The unit isn't available until late next month.


The beanbag mount has worked well for my in my Ford pickup.
