What navigation systems do y'all recommend

I am starting my Volvo driving days next week. What navigation systems do you seasoned experts use. Been using a Garmin that's built into my one ton. Ok but no height setting Ect Ect.

Thanks

Rand McNally RVGPS RVND 7720. Great 7" screen. Has height, weight, length settings. Can be easily changed between "RV mode" that uses those settings to "car mode" that does not.

I've gone through many, including mfg version in audi's, fords (including MyFordTouch microsoft based), and mazda's...

NONE work as well as Garmin's and some are dangerous !!!

either so frustrating that you might have a stroke or
turns you onto one way streets - the wrong way !

X3. I like the Rand McNally, having driven it 8500 miles this summer. In the past I really liked Garmins, so if I were buying again I would compare the new Garmin 7" RV model with the RM 7720.

Rand McNally for the truck and Garmin for the car and motorcycle. Like the new feature in the latest update of being able to calculate you mpg and cost per mile by just entering the info when you purchase fuel. It will load into an Excel spread sheet too.

GPS Drive app on my iPhone. iPhone held in a amplifier cradle plugged into power port such that it's easy to see for the driver. Works for me. Inexpensive.

Rand McNally RVGPS app for the iPad is great. The large touch screen has tons of info, and is easier to read than my smaller Garmins
