I haves Rand McNally 7710 and really hated the thing. I had a bad cord that blew every fuse when I plugged it in. I was about to toss it but called costumer service. They are great and sent me a new cord and after I explained why I hated the 7710 he had me do a firm ware update and gave me lifetime map updates for free for all my troubles. It made a huge difference and other than washing out a bit in sunlight it's what I use on every trip. I like it a lot. As back up I use my phone with the app "Waze". It does not have a RV function but it's a nice free GPS app.

Well I have the magnadyne in my 2014 3170DS and find it useless. The way it sit straight in the dash cant see it properly while driving, and worst during daytime, the glare on the screen, not well thought out.
And trying to use well it create more a hazard while driving, because your eyes are taken from the road to look down on it.
so I use my TomTom setup within the field of vision, much safer.

Tried our Rand McNally for the first time this trip. Love that it tells of steep hills and curves. Have not encountered a bridge warning ( good thing ). Pleased so far !

Use our Rand McNally constantly....saves me from having to stay glued to map or app to monitor progress and directions.

I recently purchased the Good Sam/Rand McNally GPS from Camping World in Little Rock, AT and so far I am not happy with the GPS mapping part. Two out of the there times used the picture and destination did not match. The GPS said we were at such and such address, but the map on the screen and the location of the RV were not at that address. Haven't figured out the firmware update possibilities yet. It apparently doesn't offer any updates connected to wifi. Features/tools like keeping up Southfield and main fence costs look NEAT but the basic GPS has to work or its going back pronto.

I use a Magellan Roadmate and love it.... It has the same features that truckers use - can set height, width and length of coach and it keeps me off roads that can cause me problems.... I use it constantly.....

Garmin RV 7 something is what I have. I keep it up to date as the updates are free. I have it linked to my phone via Bluetooth for additional data like enhanced traffic and actual weather. Yes my GPS will show a moving radar image and warn of snow, ice and freezing conditions. I can give it voice commands and it has about a90% success rate versus the system in my brand new Ford transit connect. Have not had many problems with it in our travels.

Does anyone know if the Garmin RV760LMT has a setting for propane? I have a few tunnels in my neck of the country that propane is not allowed.
