Anyone using a Magellan RV GPS? How do you like it? Problems?
I just purchased a Magellan RV9365T-LMB RV 7" GPS at a cheap price and the seller says he used it for several years with no problems but didn't need it anymore because he sold his Motorhome. I was looking for a Garmin RV GPS but for the price I had to at least give it a try.

My only problems with Magellan units has been battery life and the ability to run off a charger when the battery is kaput. One was unused, one was new-old-stock, but should have been ok. Neither one was - both had battery issues, and while I liked the system and easily got comfortable using to to navigate and find POIs, I’ll go Garmin next time.

For now I use the Clarion system that came with the coach (which is mediocre and I’m glad I didn’t pay extra for it), and my Ipad. But a decent GPS is in my near future - probably a Garmin 890 as I tend to find bigger screens more user friendly these days.

My bro-in-law is one of those that knows best...

and, even though I told him Garmin, he thought the Magellan was better !

Two trips later and I noticed he had returned the Magellan and got the Garmin RV760...
He hated to admit it, but the Garmin was much more intuitive to use...

The garmin 760 is an older version that I use. It does a good job. Perhaps the newer models are better and come with a better price. I upgrade when my old 760 breaks.
