Cool Need Advice on New GPS Units

Ok the time to replace my old Tom Tom unit. I would like any recommendations on the new units that are out there. Would like to have voice commands so I do not have to keep typing everything and a large screen would be nice. Thanks in advance.

We like our Garmin RV 760LMT and it seems to cover everything you are looking for.

Andrew the one I use which you know about is a Garmin 2595LM.
Its not an RV one but it still works for me.
I'm sure they have a newer model as mine is a few years old.
1. First figure what size screen you want 6", 7" or larger.
2. You said you want voice command and most Garmins have that.
3. Next you definitely want life time maps.
4. You also may want to consider the one that tell you about local traffic and accidents.
5. Price ranges from $249 and up. One of the new ones I looked at is the Garmin Nuvi 2799LMT which costs about $270

Here it is for $229 no tax and I think free shipping

Your Georgetown was going so fast thru the toll bypass you caught them by surprise and the cameras couldn't take the picture fast enough.

I just bought a Garmin RV GPS from thegpsstore.com. It can be used in regular or RV mode. Has all you asked for I believe. A rear camera can be ordered also for $155 that is wireless to the GPS unit. I found thegpsstore.com to have the best prices and service.

X's 2 on this model, I bought it and been happy with it so far. The RV model seems not to get you lost as much. I think it has the 7" screen easy to see.

If I remember right, they dont send tickets out until you miss the 3rd toll.

Garman is a good choice , just be sure to get free life time maps and traffic updates. LMT

I use a Garmin RV 760LMT. You set your camper dimensions and it will make sure all the roads are designed for it. Especially low bridges with can be a problem around Boston, Ma. IT also has unlimited map updates. They occur 4 time a year.
