Here is a fellow who did an eight part review of the Garmin RV760LMT. He seems to like it.

I have one and like it very much. I think dedicated H/W sitting right there on the dash is better than an app on a cellphone or tablet. The live traffic is nice. I have 4 other Garmins and am very happy with them in all my vehicles.

Depending on where you are, you might want to turn off the toll avoidance... I'm from Canada and one time it wanted to add 1000 miles to my trip to avoid the $6 bridge toll at the border crossing by going to the other end of Lake Ontario where the is no toll northbound.

One minor nit is that in RV mode, it calls nearly every bend in the road a 'sharp curve' but I do like the announcement of speed limit changes.

I don't think much of the bridge clearance data... there's a 10'-sumthin one in Olean NY that would take off over 2 feet of my RV (yes - 12' 10" is the configured height) and it doesn't make a peep (however, I haven't been able to find that one in any clearance reference so maybe not their fault). I wish you could explore bridge heights in the data file but I've found no way to do that.

I'm pretty satisfied with mine. I just took a 1500 mile trip and had no real issues with it. If there is a way to preview your route, I haven't figured it out yet. Other than that minor complaint, I consider it money well spent.

On my older Garmin if you tap on the top bar where the turn directions are it will list all the turns and mileage.
