I use the RV 760 and generally like it. It does have a few problems with locating campgrounds occasionally, but I rarely use it without consulting other sources. As for the OPs original question, I estimate about how far I want to travel, and then use the Android app "RVParky" to locate campgrounds in the area. It has been very useful. A lot of times, I will have my wife open RVParky about an hour before I am ready to stop, and see where the next several parks are on our route. Then, we will pick one, call ahead to see if they have an opening, and use RVParky to navigate to the campground.

My problem is there is just the dog and myself, and she is not very good at using appps, LOL! Seriously, I like to make my reservations before I pull out for the day. Have had problems at times trying to get last minute reservations with parks being full. Especially in the summer. I can see where apps can come in handy though if I were to use them when doing my initial search for a cg.

Thanks everyone for the information.

Jim
