Tried to search this term and very surprised could not find anything already posted. So I Started doing my research this off season for a GPS specific when I am towing my camper. Already figuring out that across all the manufacturers that there are so many models out there with what look like minimal differences on paper. I’m over google maps putting me on roads that I shouldn’t be on and want to free up my smart phone. I am looking for a GPS that has the following qualifications.

1- Puts me on the best route while towing. Factors in narrow roads, sharp turns, grade of hill climb/decent and puts me on the best path.

2- Can let me know camper friendly gas stations for stopping. We all know a lot of them right off the highway are not camper friendly.

3- free lifetime map updates

4- traffic updates

Those are my 4 main things I am looking for. I am less worried about battery life, cord length, preloaded campgrounds, etc. Any recommendations and first hand experience is greatly appreciated. Thanks

Seems that the Garmin RV GPS is the most popular. It's the one I will add to the "want list"

I have the Rand McNally Tablet 80 and it does all the things you mention. Got it refurbished through Amazon.

We just purchased the Garmin 770 LMT and it has all the functions you are looking for plus a lot of useable definable alerts. So far so good.
