GPS help

We have had a Garmin over the past several years and have been happy but are looking to upgrade. Would be interested in hearing opinions for a new unit, thanks.

I would go with the Garmin RV 760, especially since you're already happy with your current Garmin.

During your search, be sure to consider the cost and frequency of map updates. Many people do not and then regret it later on. There are many excellent phone and tablet GPS options out there as well some of which use device resident maps data. Saves on data charges or when coverage is available.

Highly recommend the Garmin Dezl 760LMT truck unit. It has a setting for tunnel restrictions for propane and height/length settings.

I am very pleased with the Rand McNally RVND Gps. I find it to be very versatile in both Car or RV mode. It has many options built in to assist in keeping my RV on the proper routes. I've had it for several years and it hasn't let me down yet!

I have the Rand McNally RVND 7710. It is garbage and there is little to no support from Rand McNally. I heard the 7735 sold by CW is somewhat better but support is still an issue. I am replacing mine with the RV 760LMT by Garmin. Found it for $339.95 + about $12 shipping.

Same my phone and my ipad. Use Apple Maps, Google Maps, and also Allstays Camp and RV.

I prefer the phone/tablet as the updates are free, constant, as well as live traffic updates. Not to mention all the additional functions these computers do. And the additional abilities to search and look up anything on the internet.

Last dedicated GPS i owned was over 15 yeear ago from Garmin.

I second the garmin RV 760 LMT. We just purchased it this summer when my garmin nuvi died. It has worked really well. It has the ability to switch between car and rv mode. You can program your height, weight, length and width into it.
