I don't know which is best as I have only used one GPS and that is the Rand McNally 7710. I think there are newer models now.
What ever you finally chose make sure it is for trucks and RVs. These will allow you to enter such things as vehicle height, weight and length along with whether the MH has a tow. Theses are important in keeping you away from low clearance and and roads not suitable for your particular RV.
You will also want an iPad or phone with Google maps. This is a double check on the GPS which can sometimes lead one astray as well as look ahead or take a side trip to Walmart.

I have had many GPS'. I now have the Rand McNally 7710 because of the large color monitor. The best is determined by what you want it to do for you. A GPS is like a cell phone - it can be used for the original purpose and/or a whole lot more with things you have no desire to use.

Just saw this thread...Check out the Garmin RV 760 LMT. We use the weighted bag mount so we can use it in any vehicle, and it stays put. Nice big screen, understandable voice directions and I love the lane routing split screen when coming to unfamiliar off ramps/intersections. It can also be switched from the RV mode to car mode for eliminating those height/weight restrictions for RVs. The LMT stands for free Lifetime Maps & Traffic.

I'm seriously considering the dash cam thing as well...can't offer any info there.

I had originally purchased a simple $70 unit without any screen or GPS back in Sept 2010. I used it on the coach until earlier this year when I purchased the Street Guardian Panorama G Dash Cam and installed a 128 GB SDXC Card.

After seeing the images on the Street Guardian I have decided to sell the old Dash Cam on eBay that I was going to use in my car and purchase a different model of Dash Cam that I had recently seen on a post here at iRV2.com for use in the car.

The new one for the car is called Falcon Zero F170 and it came with a 64 GB SD Card.

Ditto on dashcam.com. I visited there and read a lot of reviews before buying my dash cam. You can learn a lot about the various models/makes available.
