GPS systems for RVs
If you're an old fashioned traveler who likes to depend on road maps to get you and your RV where you're going, or if you spend hours printing out directions before you leave for a trip in your RV, now may be the time to consider a GPS unit for your RV.
Many RVers who don't have a GPS built-in on their vehicle's dash board think that these high-tech devices are too pricey. But that's simply not the case.
Portable GPS units range in price from about $135 to $450 dollars each. In addition to their affordability, these portable devices can be used in your RV, Truck or even on your motorcycle.
They're easy to use as well. Simply enter the address into the system and the device links with satellites to map out the best route. A map displays on the screen while you're driving. There are spoken directions to make navigating easier.
If you miss a turn or decide to take a different route, the device will adjust the route to compensate. Many also display your estimated arrival time, which makes traveling even easier.
One of the best selling and most advanced GPS units is the Rand McNally 7" RVND7725 GPS. With it's all new bright 7-inch screen, it's very easy to see in the daytime or night. it allows you to connect to a wireless hotspot or mobile access point to receive live weather data. Compatible with a range of backup cameras, you won't have to install another screen on your dash board.
