Just did a search about GPS for rv and nothing new since 2011.

Basically all I have found were Garmin and Rand M.
and Magellan in USA and Tomtom in Europe.

Anybody know of any modern others??
What do you have/use??
What is the best??

is not an rv--
it is a Motor Coach!!

I had the Rand McNally, and sent it back. It was impossible to program multiple routes, and it chose its own waypoints, many time through the center of town.

I spent 20+ hours on it, and never did get it to do what I wanted.

have a wide screen Garmin in the coach and a wide screen Garmin in the MINI Cooper. like them very much -- certainly better than the old Magellan I had or the counter-intuitive interface my old Lexus nav system has.

I have a cobra 8000 truckers GPS. You program in the weight, length, and height. It makes choices based on what you are driving. Has a car mode also.
