What about the Garmin RV 760 - LMT? What do you guys think about that is it worth the money?

I like mine - see post #17 above for the story of installing the backup-camera accessory with it. Only thing about it is be careful with the route avoidance settings... fee and toll avoidance is on by default and last trip it wanted to take me 1000km out of the way to avoid a $6 toll at the bridge back to Canada. In RV mode, it seems to consider nearly every bend in the road as 'Sharp turn ahead!' so I also turned off those messages. Map updates are 1.6GB so be sure you have good bandwidth or lots of time!

Angry Furrion backup cameras

I just picked up a new Wildcat with the the Furrion camera and monitor installed at the factory. Unfortunately when they wired the mount at the factory it was wired to a constant hot lead rather than the back up lite wire or the clearance lights. The only way I can keep it from running the bateries down is to pull the battery disconnect when it is parked at home. Not something I necessarily want to do all the time.The Wildcat service rep said "Oh, I could see where that might be a problem dry camping"...duh. He suggested I could " get behind the convenience center and pull the in line fuse", not a very convenient or practical solution. Fortunately my dealer service adviser (230 miles away) said he would put a switch on it for me. Poor thinking on Wildcat's part all the way around. I've been backing up trailers for forty some years now without a camera. Any body want to buy one of these things?

Are you seriously interested in selling it? If yes, how much for it? Thanks Aquaholic3

No, but thanks for the offer. I think I will install an on/off switch so it won't be running while I am parked. Then I might give it a try - might be better than the SO hollering at me.

I have the blank factory installed Furrion house on my Windjammer too. I'm think about getting this: 4.3" Monitor with Wireless 150 Bumper Backup Camera (RV System)
RV Backup Camera System | Wireless | Monitor

Remove the Furrion housing cover, drill a hole in the housing cover to mount the camera, and stuff the transmitter in the blank Furrion housing. Seems doable....

Hi Gashog,
Please let me know if you get this camera & how it works. Looks very interesting and the price is right. Thanks

the more I research backup cameras the more undeceive I get. The Tadibrothers say their wireless range is 65 feet, but I've read reviews saying the video is poor quality over 20 feet. The research continues for a camera/monitor for under $200.00 that will work utilizing my existing Furrion housing that is guaranteed to work.
