I have had a Rand McNally RV7720 (now sold by CW) for 4 years now. Not the cheapest, but comes with lifetime map updates and is designed for RV use. Pros: tell it how tall your RV is and it will route you around low bridges and keep you off restricted routes (propane, Parkways, etc); has a good search engine for campgrounds, rest areas, Walmarts and even wineries; easy to set exclusion areas so it never routes me through Washington DC; large screen for old eyes to see; decent at picking the best routes for a truck towing a camper (decent not perfect). Con's: sometimes will take you on every back road in the county to save 0.2 miles; sometimes doesn't know what side of the street your destination is on; only warns you of low bridges IF you're on a pre-selected route (doesn't work if you're just driving around). Overall, I'd buy another one or recommend this one to a friend.

I bought the Garmin RV 660LMT 6-Inch Navigator so far it is very good not cheap, I did not add the back up camera it is about a hundred more and I did not need it.

Have had 2 Garmins and couldn't be more pleased. Yes, you still need to use some common sense if all of a sudden you suspect the GPS unit is lost or confused which has happened a couple of times. However, we would never leave home without it, excellent unit and very reliable!

I have #90123 wireless two camera unit and it works very well. My RV is aluminum sided with rear kitchen and the monitor never loses connection.

I just purchased a rear view camera set up from Tadibrothers. Should be here this week. I'll report back once I've unboxed and hopefully installed it.
During my research, I found them to be quite a bit more expensive than other options, but I also think the product should be better (get what you pay for). Hopefully that's the case.

Truck has built in GPS and NAV system with OnStar, but I prefer my dash mounted Garmin 2455. More robust data.

My observation camera worked 2 hours. When I get back home I will call Furrion and try and figure out why it failed, poof. When it worked, it was worth the money!

I've had the Garmin RV760 in the coach for a year and love it. Really nice. They sell a sort of silicone mat that you can mount it to and it just sits on the dash. Absolutely does not move. I gave the small Garmin in my ?Jeep and got the wireless camera to God with it. Works great, too. I'm sold on Garmin now, having used a few other units in the past. They are a little pricey but seem to be worth it.

My Garmin is not the RV model but I was able to add the POI for low bridges/tunnels from this place - Low Clearance POI - GPS Data

Cost about $15 and is compatible with many brands of GPS units.

I might add a word of caution if you should be thinking about Garmin. I was reading the lifetime map & traffic updates are now only good for the original registered owner. So should you buy used, you'd lose one of the best features.

Instead of spending the money on a Garmin, I just use my iphone or ipad mini (w/ suction cup on my window.) I use Google maps and AllStays RV & Camp app which is sufficient for me. I did invest in a rear camera w/ night vision as I drive frequently at night.
