If I'm caught deferring to my GPS when the DW says, "Why would it want to go that way?" my life gets very tense very fast. Nothing beats The Navigator + Rand McNally map book. That's my official public stance and I'm sticking with it.

Ditto on the garmin. Many trips with no issues. As a backup and for times we are biking and hiking, I downloaded the co-pilot app on my phone. It downloads all the maps and poi's on the phone so you are not using data. It is okay for planning your trip also. I have been using microsoft streets and trips for many years and imo it is the best trip planning program there is. To bad they discontinued selling and support.

Co-pilot app looks promising. I like the idea of having maps saved on my phone.

We use trucker path, the in vehicle system as well as road atlas. Use the truck Kerrville atlas to verify possible route obstructions when planning trip. Like trucker path because it shows fuel locations, rest stops and any hight obstacles at 14' or lower. Since Trucker Path also routes for big rigs; usually the routes are reasonable for large RVs. I find their graphics to be very clear.

Smile Maps

There's nothing like a good map and common sense coupled with good eye-sight. The kids were in the back seat navigating by phone and told me I had to turn, but they were so wrapped up in the gadgets they didn't see the Detour Ahead signs! Having a good navigator - DW - and good maps work pretty darn well.

I use Google maps to preplan my trip, use good Sam trip planner to find campground and Garmin to give me turn by turn, backed up by Waze or Google maps on dw phone. Before I leave every morning I write down the major routes I will be traveling on, my Garmin has let me down too many times. I was in new Haven, CT Saturday and none of the above electronic means could get a good signal or provide accurate directions.
