I just thought I'd share this information with all of you. Have any of you thought about purchasing a GPS device for your RV? I was skeptical at first, but I've had one now for about 4 months and it is definitely someone I use all the time now. It allows me to quickly find the nearest restaurants, tourist attractions, or the nearest ATM. It's just so easy to use. They are a little pricey, but I think they are well worth it. I had great luck buying my system from Gary Landherr, email him if you would like more info. He gave me great service at a fair price.

I agree with you on the GPS. I have a Garmin StreetPilot III and have had a great time with it. I have had it about three years and find it real handy to put in the car to find my way around Like from the campground to down town Dallas and back to the campground. The thing is amazing. Good luck!

I've had the Garmin StreetPilot 2620 for several years and use it in the truck and on the motorcycle. It's an excellent piece of work!

The 2720 is the new, updated version of the 2620. Several individuals on the BMW motorcycle forums are using them and speak highly of them. That price sounds pretty good, but I haven't researched them lately.

OK. I saw anothe GPS that works with a lap top, www.alk.com/ Its called the C0-pilot and is supposed to be RV friendly. I think its about $299. I just dont know if I want to drag the lap top out, and putting all that time on the lap top.

That's one advantage of the Garmin 2620 or 2720 - it's compact, self-contained and absolutely "plug and play".

We purchased the CoPilot Live system about 6 months ago. We used it on the final part of our 2005 Travels. So far it has worked great for us. I like the large screen (from my laptop) and I like not having to buy additional hardware. My laptop will only run about 1 1/2 hours on its battery, so I run the computer from an inverter while traveling. It fits perfectly on my dash.

The Microsoft Streets GPS package is less than $100 and comes with a laptop GPS receiver. If you travel with a laptop it is a very attractive price for what you get. It has me tempted.

Regards,

Neil

I mentioned on another posting that I had the Delorme Earthmate LT20 coming. It arrived and the maps are fantastic!

No batteries needed, takes power from the laptop. It plugs into the USB port and you're ready to go. With the nice big screen on the laptop, you have a great view. I'm surprised at the detail. It also lists restaurants, campgrounds, points of interest. You can plan a trip and it will give you an estimated cost.

What's realy great is the price: $95 from www.Delorme.com. Oh year, you can talk to it and it will talk to you. Fascinatin'...

I'm suspicious of this.....
New Member forum? Off topic? First post is a product testimonial? Sounds suspiciously of a free ad to me.

Re; Posting about Delorme GPS being a testimonial.

I think Webster's intent was to tell all IRV2'ers about HIS experience with his Delorme GPS. I was not suspicious,I appreciate his efforts to share his experiences with us, this is what I thought IRV2 is all about, If he had negative experiences with the GPS, he would have posted them for all to be fore-warned.

Maybe some too easily mis-interpret another's intentions.

Not all have evil, negative, thoughts.

Remember ,, THE GLASS IS HALF FULL,, not half empty..

I hope this aids those who mis-interpret things to open their eyes and see the world is NEGATIVE enough without adding minucia.

THANKS==== AJBJRVERS
