My husband and I are planning to travel cross country with our new Travel Trailer. We are new to RV life. Can anyone tell me what they prefer to use for GPS? Do any of you use a Good Sam GPS? I have signed up with Good Sam, and have planned a trip on their site- they said I can download to their GPS if i purchase one. Just wanted some input so that I can make an informed decision. In addition, what do you use for weather updates to avoid running into a storm?
Any input would be helpful.
We have a Garmin RV 760 LMT. I have had it for a few years and love it. It allows you to enter the size of your unit, height, weight etc... and makes sure to route you around roads and objects you will not fit on. For example, low bridges. We have traveled over 20,000 miles with it and havent had any issues. It has a lot of great features and free map updates.
I like the Rand McNally with Life time maps that you can up dates as needed. I have the RVND 7710 which has a 7" screen, I believe there are more current models now, since my unit was bought sometime ago.

If you're going with a windshield mount type I think Garmin great, but I have also had great luck just using Apple Maps with my iPhone. My new Sunseeker has the in-dash Jensen unit with the NaviGo system which worked well on my first trip (and hopefully future!)
