GPS for RV's

Hi, I have been using a Garmin (7 years old) that is part of a Pioneer Tuner/Rear Camera system that gets confused at times. There now apparently are several GPS for RV systems (apps) available. Can anyone share which is really the best one.

I do not like any RV apps on a phone or tablet. I do not think they work as well when pulling a large RV such as mine.

Instead I have a dedicated RV GPS, a Garmin 785 RV with Traffic. This also incorporates a forward looking Dash Cam into the unit. What I like about this unit is that you input the trailer height, weight, number of axles, number of propane bottles and over all length of tow vehicle with trailer attached. You can also state no toll roads if you want to. I have never had any issues with this unit routing me incorrectly when I am towing my 5er.
