RV770LTM has tons of RV info. Voice control, phone interface, 7", high res screen, camera option. Think about the info needed to navigate, most of which is old maps, the info is big enough to drive on. With most GPS problems can be avoided if the user reads the
M A N U A L and understands how the options affect the outcome. Next review the route, if your in Kansas, Dorothy, Seattle is west not east and you don't cross an ocean, point being if the GPS says turn left across a bridge over a river that is yet to be built or destroyed by that last flood the info might not be correct or updated. GPS are great tools but none are perfect and correct operation is necessary.

One of my weaknesses is a fondness for the English language and grammar. The internet and messaging applications have done more harm than good in that regard. I often come across the word "your" used in place of you're as a contraction of you are. How did we get here I often wonder?

We use standard Co-Pilot installed on an iPad that has a GPS receiver. Easy to see, small enough to use. No additional equipment needed.
Gives good routes, you can adjust the route to go where you want to go and you do not have to rely on the program's routing, audible directions given while driving, route can be previewed sitting at home the night before, and for a few $ more, can give you traffic conditions ahead when driving.
Have used for years and never disappointed.

It is not the RV model of Co-Pilot. Most features of RV model are also available on standard Co-Pilot.

We purchased the GPS option on our 2018 Phaeton. What they installed was a truckers Kenwood with Garmin Maps. I configured it for an RV profile and we are very happy with it. Updates are accomplished with an SD card making that task simple. We are routed through areas that donít have low clearance issues; something a unit built for cars wouldnít necessarily have to consider. We also purchased a Trucker Road Atlas from Amazon. It is spiral bound with laminated pages so it is easy to use and protected from spills or dirty fingers.
