GPS


Recommended Posts

I like CoPilot.  They have several different versions with varying capabilities.  The RV version allows you to enter vehicle parameters, among other things.  I also like that I can use it on my iPad (a much bigger screen than a typical standalone GPS).  It has not let me down yet.

I have owned several units and without citing any specific models I RECOMMEND GARMIN. The reason is UNLIKE many other brands Ive owned when I needed help and sought Technical Support over the phone and usually got longggggggggggg wait times, or reached Habib from Pakistan who didn't speak understandable english, or never got anything but a computer and had to keep pushing buttons, like to NEVER reached a live breathing english speaking person.

WHEN I CALLED GARMIN TECH SUPPORT AN ARTICULATE ENGLISH SPEAKING TECH ANSWERED IMMEDIATELY TELLING ME THEY WERE LOCATED IN USA AT THE GARMIN HEADQUARTERS and they helped me instantly.

That was MY experience, others may have had different. BEST fast live english speaking help I ever received.

My Garmin 770 has height, length, width and weight limits.

I guess it has been changed with one of the updates! I just looked and mine has all of those now also. I hadn't set them as it didn't back when we got it and with our little travel trailer it really isn't a big deal.

We use a Garmin, RV 770 LMT-S but none of these do anything for weight limits or length, as far as I know. A good GPS will help a great deal fut you still need to use good judgement and none of them are completely fool proof.

Edited because I saw that he now said that it could several posts later.

Not having done any research on this yet, but do any GPSs also work on or through an iPad?
Or maybe I should ask the question, is there a GPS built to use the screen of an iPad.

CoPoilot. They have rv and truck version. I have it on a droid but you just download the ipad one.

Make sure your iPad has a GPS built-in, since some WiFi-only models do not.  You can tell if you have a GPS when maps show your location correctly.
