That is good news as I have always used a Tom Tom and I was thinking about one

I have the garmin 760. Bought it based on any review I could find rated it number 1, the Amazon user rating were significantly higher, last but not least we got on sale for 300. It is the non back up camera version but I can add it for 150.

Looked at the app versions and data was a concern. My wife and I did try on a few hour trip and found it used less then a 100kb an hr so may not be a huge deal.

So far I have not had much of a chance to try it out. It will route you based on the info you out in, heights of bridges are considered, tunnels for propane and such. There are a lot of free poi files you can add from user based website that increase the database.

One issue I have, North of the border it appears to do fine on major routes and cities, side towns RV information on bridge heights and what not does not exist.

Yes I have used Google Maps, I use it as a backup to my GPS. One time I had a Tom Tom take me into a town and then it quit giving me directions. If it wasn't for the navigation in my cell phone I'd probably still be going round in circles in that town

We started off with Tom-Tom's and, at first, they were great but the last one we bought had serious issues and almost zero tech-support so we bought a Garmin and LOVE it! It has free lifetime map upgrades, too. (It's a 5-inch, model 52LM)

There's also a Garmin friction mount available which is great because you can grab the entire thing and move it from vehicle to vehicle or store it inside something when you stop. (I've known people who've had their windows smashed and one thing they took was the GPS.)

But now we have GPS in my new Tundra so I'm not sure if I'll even use my Garmin now.
