I use a Garmin RV660 and love the unit. This unit has a smaller 6 inch screen, many use the Garmin RV770 but it has a 7 inch screen and I did not want to take up that much space in the cab.
My TV is a Ford F350 and I use a proclip for mounting the unit, this work very well.

We use the Garmin 770 and it worked very well this year on our trip to Alaska. It was very useful to find campgrounds along the way. We use a plastic disc with 3M adhesive sticker we found in a camping store for $2.00 and stuck it on top the center console. Works great.

X2 on the Garmin RV660. I use it in my 2016 30DS with a portable ball friction mount. Having the ability to input my MH specs and have the GPS factor this information is invaluable when travelling unfamiliar routes.

I use a Motorola Xoom tablet with the speaker dock and run a navigation app called Sygic Car Navigation. The tablet also runs an app, Torque Pro which connects to the ODBII adapter to monitor engine stats.

I mounted the dock to the dash just to the right of the instrument panel with some command strip velcro.

It's nice to have the large display right up on the dash. I can easily see the directions and all of the maps for the Sygic app are downloaded to the Xoom so I don't have to have an internet connection.
