Description


An RV adventure is more than an ordinary car trip. Which is why you need more than your car GPS.
The RVND5525 is the ideal size for smaller RV dashboards such as those on Class C and Class B motorhomes or on pickups, vans and SUVs towing trailers or 5th wheels. It offers all the same features as the 7" Good Sam RVND7725 GPS in a more compact size. It was designed to meet the unique challenges of driving an RV with award-winning routing and tools that help you plan, prepare, and enjoy the ride. Choose your vehicle from 11 different RV types, including Class A, fifth wheel, and travel trailer. The RVND5525 accounts for propane restrictions and even right- or left-hand turn preferences. Or switch to car mode for everyday use.

New Features:
  • All-new design featuring easy-grip hardware, brighter screen that adjusts for low and strong light, and upgraded speaker.
  • Wi-Fi—Connect to a wireless hotspot or mobile access point on your smartphone to access connected services:
    • Weather—Dynamic weather data, including current and forcasted information for your current location, destination and anywhere along your route. Choose from 10 different live map overlays to display important information for RVers, such as wind speed and precipitation.
    • Fuel prices—View fuel prices on the map or search by price, fuel type or brand.
    • Local search—Find local businesses, restaurants and more by name or keyword.

Not worth the money

I've owned and used this thing for nearly a year. The route planning is atrocious. I have it set to always choose the fastest route. Invariably, it selects a route that includes getting off a freeway and traveling through half a dozen Podunk towns. Twenty percent of the time it can't put me within 1/4 mile of the final destination. One nightmare of a trip was unbelievable. FIVE times in a three mile stretch it told me I was at my destination when there was nothing but tobacco fields around me. When I finally found my destination (sheer luck) the GPS said I still had two miles to go! The only good features in the device are the adequate screen size and the fuel log. All of the others are clunky at best and mostly useless. Sorry I was suckered into buying it. Would never recommend it.
Pros: Excellent fuel log
Cons: Unreliable, Poor route calculations

I was one of the first purchasers and it is terrible. The maps lack detail providing only major roads and streets. The charting takes you so far out of the way I have to shut it off. Traveling from Springfield, IL to Montgomery, AL it had me taking back country roads that would have extended driving time by almost 4 hours when the Interstate went directly to my destination. I not only map out my trips before I get on the road but I carry a standard GPS to be able to see the adjoining roads and streets. It's pre-sale advertising made it sound like the greatest thing since cheap gas but the reality is something else. Without detailed maps that are as detailed as every other GPS this thing is worthless to the serious traveler. I would never recommend this device to anyone and if I could get my money back I would, but too late.
Cons: Poor route calculations

I've had this GPS for about 4 months now. Get the larger 7" version. This screen is too crowded and difficult to read with the 5" screen. There are far too many menu locations and unintelligent set-up within each menu location. Many times I know an item exists in a menu...somewhere. Locating it is difficult and time consuming. The routing is also questionable. We are full-time. My wife follows behind our 5th wheel in our CRV when changing locations. Her GPS is calculating much more efficient routes. This one adds as many as 40 to 50 miles to a 300 mile trip. When we're burning diesel at 9 to 10 mpg, this can add up to significant dollars. I'm very disappointed in this GPS. I would return it if I could.
Cons: Poor menu design, Poor route calculations, Small screen, Crowded screen

So far it is terrible. I printed the manual. (Why don't they supply you with one?) Right now I am stuck in Custom POIS to import won't let me click on import now or don't import so can't use the device. Took an hour to charge and then I couldn't input anything. So there, I am stuck miles from nowhere and it wouldn't work. I contacted Rand and am still waiting for a reply. I haven't owned it a month, terribly disappointed.

Good, but....

OK, I just bought this GPS as a replacement and have only had it long enough to try a couple of short trips. I love the larger size compared to my other GPS and that the Good Sam campground database is already in it. What I find most disappointing is that I can't specify maximum driving speed to get more accurate arrival times - the GPS assumes you are driving close to maximum posted speed. I can do a city-to-city check with a limiting speed, but actual trips don't let me do that - I thought from the description this GPS would allow that and that was one of the reasons I got this unit. I also am limited to two voices; both a bit hard to understand. Perhaps with practice, I'll get as fast at programming this GPS as I am with the other one, but right now I give my other GPS the edge for usefulness. This GPS is also death to batteries. Overall, it is a good unit, takes some getting used to and I'll probably learn to like it but had I known I can't set a maximum speed for calculations I would not have spent the cash. If Rand McNally would update the software to allow speed settings and work on voice clarity I think I could learn to love this one too.
