Hmm, Can't comment on Rand McNally GPS but I can give you my two centavos on RV Trip Wizard. We fly with a Garmin GPS and use RV Trip Wizard. Driving a 45 foot RV I like to plan (and please, non-planners save your comments, we know you are brave souls)! RV Trip Wizard has several unique features... 1.) the distance rings, I like to limit the distance I drive per day. Being retired I have no need to drive 500 miles a day... I like 200 miles, so I set the rings at 150, 200, and 250 miles. Highlight your current or planned position and the rings will indicate CGs within the those distances. 2.) Park ratings, websites comments are available (albeit I always cross reference ratings with other RV Park rating sites). 3.) Trip Wizard stores an infinite number of previous trips that can be renamed, modified and reused. 4.) RV Trip Wizard allows me to save and download the trip in an Excel spreadsheet that I can modify, save and print. The download contains daily driving distance, park amenities, telephone numbers, addresses and trip distance totals, ETC... I find it my go to trip planner!! If you would like to see examples, PM me.
