Navigation for RVs
« on: September 05, 2019, 09:45:10 AM »
I have been using Waze but it does not always choose correctly even for a car.  And that is with preference set for highways.

Now I am pulling an RV and have heard there are perhaps other Navigation aids.  I would prefer an app that downloads to iPhone.  I will consider a GPS device also.

Any recommendations?

I'll be curious to read responses to this topic.

I'll will say I have a Garmin Diesel (I think) that is supposed to be good for RVs but it really seems in RV mode it is made for trucks and warns and keeps you off roads that you can use for an RV. So thankfully it has a Car mode and I always run it like that even when I tow my trailer, just works better.

I've seen advertisements in some of the RV magazines for other stand alone GPS but I have never wanted to spend more money to evaluate and try those.

I'm old school and like the larger screen of a traditional auto GPS.

Waze is good for occasional use when I don't have the GPS in vehicle but it is annoying too "Car on Shoulder" and half the time it is not. "Police reported ahead" Ok if traffic has slowed for it but flashing lights are pretty hard to miss while driving.
