I alsohave the Magellan RV-9145-LM. It is great. I bought my Georgetown in Mich. last july and drove it home alone. It worked great. Program in dimensions ,destination and go. I don't know what i would have done without it navigating alone.

We use the "Maps" program on our I phone and it talks right thru our MH front speakers.. It interrupts the music and gives us the next directions.. Works great and stays up to date but I miss a picture..

For driving I use CoPilot on an iPad. Easy to see and the maps are downloaded. I wish I could find a great app for planning a trip.

Home of the Best RV Trip Planner Ever - Give it a try! looks to be the most comprehensive and continuously up to date trip planner for RV's out there...but it is $39 a year. I'm thinking about asking Santa for a subscription...

If you are a Good Sam member...their on line Trip Planner is free and simple to get the hang of. My Good Sam already pays for itself in park discounts so for me, the software is a nice membership bonus that is also well integrated with their campground listings and reviews. It does have a few glitches that I work around...but it is a very useful tool. Oh..and if you have a good sam compatible GPS...you can download the trips directly.

If you have a Garmin GPS they also have some trip planning software Base Camp, that is very feature rich but no particularly geared to the RV user and less than easy to master.

Here's a great article on RV trip planning tools that is well worth your time:
