RV GPS Issue and Question

We have a Garmin 770 RV GPS. Bought it a couple of years ago and has been working fine. On this trip, it seems to freeze up while planning a route. If I reboot a few times, I can complete planning the route and while driving it works fine. However, the freezing up is new and is frustrating. It's not that it's not getting a signal or getting a weak signal. Something else going on I think. Anybody else have this issue?

Here's the related question. What about a cell phone app like RV Life that apparently is an RV GPS and a campgrounds locator. Is this app useful and something I should consider? Pros and cons?

Thanks for any comments.

Have you ever updated the software (& maps)? We do that at least once in the beginning of the RV season.

We've never used the phone apps other than Google Maps to get live data for traffic & road status.

Also, the memory might be near full. Delete anything you don't use like old trips.

Whatever you Try or Buy.
make sure you can put in your Height, Weight, and length. Ex Google Maps or Waze does NOT take into account those features
