[QUOTE=HSVBamaBob;697985]I am sorta MEH on not only the Garmin but our Sirus traffic updates in the truck.
I agree a handheld CB is the best solution for what the OP is looking for.
Regarding traffic - well there's a app for that
Check our Waze for the iphone/Pad droid - social media meets GPS
Back to GPS...I am eyeing the Rand McNally RV GPS because it has a databas of low bridges (a encounter we had on the way to Goshen and I do NOT want to repeat!)[/
Bob, I just bought the Rand McNally RV GPS (7735, the newest one, from Camping World, with the Good Sam brand on the front.) I really like it, and it is easy to use, once you get used to it...I've used a Garmin for so long, and this takes a bit of getting used to. Setting it up with specifics for your 5er (height, length, weight, etc.) is easy, and it has a feature that lets you switch from "towing" to "not towing" or "car" mode, which shuts off all the low bridge, weight restriction, tunnel warnings.
The only thing I DON'T like about it is the screen is very hard to see in bright sunshine conditions. If you get one - and I plan on keeping this one - get some kind of a visor/sunshade for it. Even a cheapie $6 one from Amazon.com helps.
Sorry for the thread highjack...we now return you to the OP's original discussion of CB radios.....
