Carl,

 

This looks like an interesting product. It looks like it can support a rear camera. Does anyone know anything about Rand McNally back-up camera's ?

 

I am in need of a back-up camera for my hitch.

I would trade my Garmin for one if anyone purchases and doesn't like.

Howdy!

 

I'll stick with my Samsung Note 10.1 tablet and Co-Pilot truck app. Works great never steered me wrong, and when I get a new tablet or smartphone I can just load the Co-pilot app onto it.

FWIW:

An Android tablet with similar specs costs between $80 and $200. The Copilot software is $150. It appears RM doesn't sell their routing software by itself...

The system runs the Rand McNally 7730 system basically which is about $300 and if a tablet can average $150, then the value is about $450 for both. Then you add the dash cam component to it, which is nice. The problem is when you start saying you have all these items separately, you can't utilize them the same way you can the RV Tablet. This thing mounts to the dash by an magnetic mount and runs the camera while running the GPS and charges through the mount using your 12V. It's just convenient to me. If I have a tablet, which I do, and download a CoPilot software, then I can't magnetic mount it like this would and run a dash cam program like it will. I also can't build my trips in TripMaker on the tablet and send it directly to the GPS. Before this, I had to do it on my computer first. I personally like the convenience of it all in one place and all in one unit. In addition, I prefer the Rand McNally GPS system. To get an RV GPS, a dash cam, and an an Android tablet - all with the magnet mount that works for traveling, it's worth the $475 to me. http://www.technorv.com/product_p/rnd-rvtablet.htm
