Correction: The RV NA 770 MT-S IS NOT a reliable, easy to use, RV nav system according to lengthy and intelligent customer review comments on Amazon. Sounds worse than my Subaru nav system!! Glad I read Amazon user reviews vs ad information.

I always look at more than one place when buying something to compare prices and always look at the reviews. Sometimes they have very good reviews but I always check them thru Fakespot you would be surprised at what you find,many that have glowing reviews are mostly fake!

Our smart phones offer up-to-date navigation where cell coverage exists. We bring an old outdated GPS navigation devise to fill in the voids as needed, but our primary backup is a paper Rand McNally Atlas. I am not sure we would bring a GPS navigation devise if we had not already owned an old one.

GPS navigators require expensive updates or subscriptions, a big turn-off for me because the updates can over-load and then drag down the performance of an older devise.

I kind of like that our radio does not have an integrated GPS because outdated electronic gadgets irritate me. I like that the disease is not built into our rig.

Well put, Ron!

Just the right amount of electronics in one's life is a balancing act.

Our 3550LM Garmin navigator has free lifetime map updates and plenty of built-in memory. Like you, we back it up with several atlas books - one entire large format Benchmark book for each state.

Only the DW has a smartphone but we do not use it for navigation ... partially because of the in and out of cell tower signals as we travel. Also FWIW, I don't trust Google to be "helping" me with anything that's "free" - they probably always get something back in return -> "data on us".

I think its eyeride system https://www.eyerideonline.com/. I never have any problems with it. It’s done everything that I needed it to do and then some. I would buy this all over again if I had to.
