Rv gps

My wife and I are planning a cross country trip next summer and we feel we need to purchase a dedicated RV GPS instead of continuing to use our current Garmin 2795. I just wanted some recommendations from members that are happy with the one they use. We've always used a Garmin GPS but are open to other brands if they are better. Any suggestions? Thanks for your help.

I looked up reviews over the weekend and Garmin is still tops for navigation. One brand had 10 million points of interest vs Garmin 7 million, but the points of interest don't matter if it can't get you there.

We have a RV760 Garmin. I have a built in one in my personal vehicle, GMC, and am having a hard time getting used to it after a Garmin portable.

I would look at an RV dedicated GPS. You put in your RV specs and it will direct you around any low bridges etc. We also are in the market for a new one.

Gps

We also have built in units on all of our vehicles but the Garmin RV 760 LMT always sits on our dash no matter what we are driving - it has saved us at low clearances and load zoned roads several times Les

Norty1, are you happy with the Garmin RV760? In doing further research it looks like the RV 760 has been discontinued. I hope not, but that's what I'm seeing.

We also use the Garmin 760 LMT. You can insert your weight, length and height. It has kept us off several weight restricted bridges so far. Very happy with it and it’s features.

The Garmin 760 has been replaced by the Garmin 770. This on has a 7 inch screen. The Garmin 660 has a 6 inch screen. We use the 760 and with the Smart Link to out phone, get weather updates and traffic warnings. Like2nOZ says, you can enter your rigs vitals. Also has switchable modes so you can use it in your car without having to change any of the vitals.

Looks like the newest is a Garmin 780:

We have used the Garmin RV760LMT for a few years now and have not been disappointed with it. Just plug in your RV specs and it will guide you to your location, taking into consideration low clearances, gravel roads, etc. Much better than our replaced Tom Tom.

Happy RVing,
Jeffack roads, etc.

Thanks all for your feedback and links. We've decided to go with the Garmin RV 770-S. It happens to be on sale at Garmin.com for $50 off the price on Amazon. Thanks again for your help.
