Looking for a good RV GPS receiver

I'm in the market for a decent RV receiver. Has anyone found one they like? I would really appreciate any recommendations.

Garmin RV 760LMT

We have the Garmin RV 760LMT and really like it. It has many more features than we use but it is a nice big screen and easy to use.

We have a Rand-McNally (branded as a Good Sam from Camping World) 7" and really like it, except that on bright, sunny days, it is difficult to see the screen. I even put one of those cheapie sunshades on it. It helped some, but it is still difficult to see. Maybe a wider sunshade might help...mine is about 1" wide across the top of the screen, tapering down to flush as it goes down either side of the screen.

But as far as features, information available, and ease of use, I like it.

Thanks for the reply! Do you have the backup camera version?

Garmin has imho out performed any of the other GPS's. They've been in the business from the beginning and they seem to have put an effort into offering useful easily used features.

Whatever you get make sure you opt for the Life-Time map updates. We have a Garmin and it only cost $30 more than the base unit for the version with Life-Time updates (4 updates/year).

Here's a recent review from PC Mag:
The Best GPS Devices | PCMag.com

CNET also is an excellent source of info:
Best GPS systems of 2014 - CNET

And if you search on Amazon, Garmin are the most popular.

If you are looking for In-Dash (i.e. double DIN), Kenwood is very popular on this forum.

GPS

We use Rand McNally from camping world....could not ask for a better GPS. The sun does fade the screen however move it to place where the sun don't shine...it will work in other paces other than the dash top. I keep mine on the left side of the dash ...slanted to the right

We bought the Rand Mcnally.....5"...after a good friend who had the 7" suggested that it was too big to suit him. We like the unit just fine.
