I do use Garmin but only as a backup but try to always know my location, direction of travel and appx mile marker. I still use paper maps to confirm routes.
It is wise to run the route thru Garmin but just as a safety measure to double check yourself. IMHO everyone has become too dependant on AI and are letting our self
go to pot! pardon the punt.......

Be safe out the there,

keep the shiny side up,

aim for between the lines

& Roll-On........
To quote the late, great President Regan, "Trust, but verify". You are correct. Use the Garmin, but check it independently. That's what my navigator does. And we both use still use our eyes.

I "thought" the Garmin 760LMT was the top dog for RVers. but everyone talks about the 770, 780 & now the 785. So which is BEST?

These Garmin models are a progression of RV specific GPS's. 760 has a smaller screen, but probably the same software and maps as the 770. The 780 is a later release of the 770. Some early users of the 780 say it is substantially the same as the 770. One user of the 785 said the main improvement was including a built in dash camera. Earlier versions required a separate camera for forward viewing.

Re the Garmin 785, can the dashcam be aimed independently of the gps orientation?
