  1. Hello Everyone, I'm not an RVer but I want to purchase a good Stand-Alone GPS system for car navigation in the next week or so and I would really appreciate some input from those of you that use a Stand-Alone GPS on a regular basis. I realize that most/many of you will be using RV-Specific or Trucker-Specific units, but most manufacturers have comparable units for cars without the added RV/Trucker specifics .... so I'd still appreciate knowing what you RVers are using as I'm sure it will assist me in making an educated decision. I emailed the always helpful Emily Fagan of Roads Less Traveled (RLT), and since they do not use any GPS, she recommended 3 Forums of avid & knowledgeable RVers that I should contact and see what all of you are using and are happy with. rv.net rvnetwork.com irv2.com Note that I will be cross-posting this request to the 3 forums above, so please ignore it on the other forums if you've already replied. Here are my ideas / wish list ......... Initial thoughts: Stand-alone GPS System. No more than $300. Not interested in any Phone Based GPS. I've used several different stand-alone GPS units several years ago and I found that all were hard to enter destinations, and were just overall difficult to use. I'm interested in the following, but not in any order of priority. *** I will NOT be connecting a smart phone to the unit for calling or any reason. Cost - let's say up to $300 Definitely MANUFACTURER SUPPORT, ie, a company that stands by their product IF there is a problem and is easy to contact, ie, answers the phone if necessary. Prefer a larger screen, but functionality is more important Easy to enter destinations and easy RE-ROUTE manually when desired Un-cluttered EASY to view/read map screen while driving Lifetime FREE map updates Includes "traffic" or "construction" functionality. (Unless there is a consensus that it's useless - please advise) is TOUCH SCREEN useful ? Thank you in advance to anyone who can take the time to share your experience and assist me in purchasing a unit that I will find useful. Regards to all, Lance
  2. A lot of people use cellphones for maps and navigation, but, when you are out of cellphone range good old satellite navigation is really hard to beat. We've found a number of instances where we were glad to have the satellite navigation as a backup plan. What system do you normally use?
