Old one died. We want one with a large display and one where you can designate you are in a large motorhome. Don’t care about WiFi and Bluetooth stuff. Any suggestions?

Does your truck or RV have Apple Car Play or the Android equivalent? The Apple system works well for me.

Have you searched the forum for this topic? There are dozens - if not more - of threads on RV GPSs. The Garmin RV and Dezl units are popular. We have used one with good success for about seven years now.

You really don't need anything more than Google Maps and/or WAZE and a bit of common sense. These are free but common sense must be at users discretion.


What I post is my 2 cents and nothing more. Please don't read anything into my post that's not there. If you disagree, that's OK.
Can't we all just get along?

Get a 10" Android tablet with built-in GPS sensor and install the Co-Pilot RV app.
Then you have a 10" GPS for 1/3 the cost, RV specific, and a tablet to use for other things when the GPS isn't needed.

OP here. This is an interesting idea. Don’t have a tablet. DH would love the larger screen. Does it have to be android? Don’t know anything about tablets but DH had an android phone years ago and we hated it.

X2. Been using Garmin for years with little complaint. Only once or twice it put the destination on the wrong side of the street, but still in the correct area. Just keep it updated.
