    Garmin vs Rand McNally RV GPS

    I have have had Betty (our Garmin GPS) for about nine years. She is getting tired but still works good. I tell where we want to be as we start out in the morning and she takes us there. More than once for what we think is for no reason she will take us a different way than we planned. We have learned to to trust her. For example, the last trip she took us around a landslide, and a 3 hour long traffic jam. She did not avoid the redwood tree but that would have been impossible. If you have the setting right you will stay off dirt roads, etc. I change and update the maps as they come out. The road they change may be the one I am going to go on today. I got a RN but I could not read the screen due to lighting so I sent it back.

    Coach-Net Crashed on me

    I just got back from the dealer where I "fit" the Honda Fit. I am a big fellow and the Fit is small. I felt my feet were sitting on the front bumper. Afraid it is a little to small for me. But thanks for the information. So still looking for a toad.

    Jcussen and Bill I found the manuals for both the 2012 and the 2014 Honda Fit and they both said that to tow behind a Motorhome would ruin the transmission. What am I missing? I will go to the Honda dealers tomorrow but you can't find a salesman who knows anything like that. Maybe I will talk to the sales Manager. Thanks for your help.

    The Honda Fit? WOW Glad you told me that. The Motorhome Dinghy Addition doesn't even list that. What year is yours?

    Coach-Net Crashed on me

    Well, Good news and Bad news.. Found out I did have towing on insurance policy, just didn't see it. So they will pay about 3/4 of it. Won't cover extraction from tree. Guess most company's won't. Coach-Net does say they will cover in their list of benefits that but they won't talk to me. Bad news, my car was totaled and they won't cover the tow bar. Strange. Now I need a new toad, base plate, tow bar, cables and wiring, It never ends.. The Honda CR-V was good and easy to set-up so maybe I will get another. Any other ideas for a good, easy vehicle to set-up and go? Maybe I should start another topic,

    Thanks Dutch, this is more complete than what I had. Now I just might get some of it back. But I won't hold my breath. I will let you all know how it turns out. Thanks for the replies.

    Some Insurance does not cover towing. And why have double coverage. As far as I knew I was cover with all my towing with Coach-Net. Dutch, I can't find that statement in my brand new membership papers. And the claims people at Coach-net said "No coverage with accidents". What can I say?

    No, It was not complementary but the Premium package that I paid for. Thanks
  14. My Dear Bride and I went for a nice drive thru the Ave of the Giants in the redwood forest in California. As we drive about 30 MPH a redwood tree decided to fall across the highway, the same one we were on. It was close, very close. It hit, bounced and we were ON it. Yep, that's right ON it. I got away from the trunk and drove up the branches onto the top. So here we are sitting on top of a three foot thick tree. Needless to say, the car (happily not the coach) was damaged badly. The coach was 40 miles away in the RV park. The CHP was there real soon, and we tried to contact Coach-nt but no one answered the phone so we had to use the basic AAA we had, It covers 5 miles or something like that. The car had to be removed from the tree then towed to their lot. When I finally got to Coach-Net they told me THEY DID NOT COVER ACCIDENTS. To me that does not make sense. So I have over a thousand dollar tow bill and am looking for another company to be with that has towing even with accidents. I am going to cancel Coach-net. It came with the new motorhome and it is gone. Any other companies you all can recommend? Once again I ask the experts.
