GPS
 
I am looking to get a new GPS. My nuvi200 does not do trucks or RVs. I have a 2006 F250 4x4 King Ranch with commercial plates and a 2014 Primetime Crusader 260RLD 5th wheel. Not able to use my pickup truck on parkways in New York even without camper. Have not taken camper off Long Island yet. Looking to do so next month. Looking for one GPS that does my truck, 5th wheel and my car. I like the RV760 but the propane thing will be a problem. The dezl760 would take care of the propane but gives me settings more suited for a tractor trail truck. I like the RV one with all its RV info vs the dezl and all its truck stops and truckers info that i don't need. Does anyone have any suggestions?

Try the Garmin 760LMT

From what i am being told it does not take care of the propane. In my travels there are tunnels that you can not take propane through. Was my information i was told incorrect?

Then maybe try the Rand McNally one, I am not sure which one tells about propane

You can take propane in tunnels, the propane is supposed to be turned off is all

Just bought the dezl 760 and it does not deal with the tunnel/propane issue. It will handle your rv dimensions, etc.

I think if you use the hazard setting it covers your propane.

I purchased a magellan rv9165t-on. It's awesome. It will do everything you want +. I got a reconditioned unit on Amazon for half the price of new and it works perfect. Love it and wouldn't think of leaving without it.

spock123 - You cannot take propane through any of the tunnels that connect to NYC, nor on the lower levels of bridges, such as the GWB.

I stand corrected, you can set it to truck and compressed gases and it will route you around tunnels that are restricted.
