I use a Tom Tom at work and with it set to "quickest time" it will try to take you down roads that don't make sense, and when you ignore its directions and go with the road that does make sense the time to destination is usually reduced when it recalculates. Go figure!
For personal use I use a Garmin Nuvi, can't remember the model but its navigation is much better. Get one with the lifetime map updates and it won't be obsolete for a while. I do like the screen shot of the RVND though.

We use the Garmin Nuvi 2460LMT with the ecoRoute that monitors the engine functions. Got it last fall and it is a pretty good unit. Switch it from truck to wife's Caddy. Amazing what goes on with the engines in both vehicles.

Garmin all the way, best IMHO. I don't trust the smart phones because they still rely on G3 or greater signal, Honestly I always try to find a campsite where my phone has no signal...

I've been using a Garmin 465T and for the most part, really like it. It has some good POI that I've downloaded, campgrounds, truck stops, etc.

HAVING SPENT 30 YRS DRIVING A TOUR BUS ACROSS EUROPE USING MAPS, THE CLOCKWORK GARMIN STREETPILOT THAT I USE ON MY RV TRAVELS IS JUST A BACK-UP FOR ROUTING, BUT AN ESSENTIAL FOR FINDING A WALMART TO KEEP THE OTHER HALF HAPPY

Magellan Roadmate 3045MU

I have been using Magellan's since GPS units began selling. My latest is the RoadMate 3045MU. It shows all the RV campgrounds at your command within 25 miles of your position.

Magellan's have over 6 million POIs. These POIs will change about every 18 months. Places being built, ATMs, going out of business, ETC.

I have two GPS units, newest one I use all the time and a backup just in case the DW disagrees and argues with the GPS directions.
I also us the WalMart Rand McNally Road Atlas which list all of the WalMarts & Sam's stores by address and zip code just in case the DW loses the argument with the GPS!
