Garmin RV-760LMT with the BC-20 camera is "Da Bomb" (MANY thumbs up).

The reviews are 100 to one positive for this unit and camera.

Rand McNally; not so much...

Our Garmin, can't remember the model, tried to put us in the lake. I managed to get the rig stopped, but came very close to swimming. I was thinking that in the dark water looks deceptively like road. Road sign saved us.....

I think I going back to old school....use a map and when needed print out from google or map quest for the local directions.....other wise let my wife command and control from her phone, direct us in....with it she could have been a FAC......besides if we get stuck, I can blame her and win an argument every once in a while....lol...lol...

truthfully these things are nice but they spoil us....I drive everywhere without it and only use it for the in town or hard to get places that i just don't want to think on route...

chpence1,

sounds like you been to Lebanon, Indiana,...the road there drives straight into the boat ramp.......used to be a bike shop and little bar/grill...with a little camp ground beside it....at night no telling how many didn't see the sign and almost slide into Ohio River.... you can't see the water till you crest the noll and it is straight in.....

Wow!!
Actually this event was in Arkansas. Greers Ferry lake and Old Highway 25.
Never trust GPS. .. 75% MAYBE if no water, snow, mountains, tunnels or bridges are involved.
