RV-friendly GPS units reviewed by RV Tech Tips pro Mark Polk


As the navigator for all our RV travels, I appreciate the importance and value of a reliable GPS. Our current GPS is almost four years old, and even though I purchased a “lifetime” maps update option, I find the selected routes are not always the most appropriate for a recreation vehicle, even our truck/camper.

Therefore, when I was reading the most recent RV Travel Newsletter, I was drawn to Mark Polk’s RV Tech Tip: “A rundown of GPS units designed especially for RVers.”

Mark writes: “GPS designed for automobiles could get the RV owner in some challenging predicaments. Driving or towing an RV can be a white knuckle experience when the GPS leads you to an overpass that is too low, a bridge not rated for the weight or a residential neighborhood with low hanging tree branches.”

After reading the article (click here), I have a more clear idea of what is available, and I’m pretty sure which unit I’m asking Santa to bring us for Christmas.
