GPS recommendations

My old Garmin bit the dust today, so I will be purchasing a new GPS soon. Now that I will be camping with a trailer, I would like to get a GPS that will be good for traveling and will also be capable of adding a rear view camera connection for my trailer. My TV is a Mercury Mountaineer, and my camper is a Jayflight 154bh. I will have the camera system professionally installed. Any suggestions as to which GPS systems/cameras to consider?

Got the Garmin RV760LMT a couple of months ago and so far love it. I haven't used it with the TT yet, but I have "tested" it in areas I know would be tight for the TT and it would have kept me out of trouble. It does have rear view camera capabilities.

I have a Garmin although no camera capability and no issues. Friends have Tom Tom and don't like it as much as the Garmin.

You may want to consider one that accomodates trailer lengths and height clearances. Our Garmin does not and it took me and our previous 38' fiver down a residential street in Holland, MI. Just about lost my air conditioners on that one

We have the Rand McNally 7710rv that allows you to put in height, weight and length. It is very useful and I love the big screen. It also has a lot of other features, like elevation, sunrise, sunset,etc not usually found on GPS. I believe the new Rand 7725RV has a feature that you can put a wireless back up camera, it might be worthwhile to check out their website. We also have 2 garmin GPS's, but love the Rand for the RV

My recommendation is to get the Garmin RV760LMT, It has the ability to load your vehicle specifications, and should help to keep you on safe roads for RV travel, no electronic system is flawless, you still must use common sense and study your route in advance.
