What's the Best GPS for RVing
What is the best GPS for RVing?Let The Good Sam Extended Service Plan Pay Your RV Repair Bills
ANSWER: Hi thanks for submitting your question on our Ask An RV Question Page
When my family and I first started RVing in the early 70s there was no such thing as portable GPS units for cars or RVs, so of course our only option was to use individual maps, a Road Atlas
or an occasional stop at a gas station to get directions.
Once I acquired my first Laptop Computer
I started to use Microsoft Streets and Trips
on the laptop to get where I was going and I always ended up buying a new edition of Microsoft Streets and Trips about every two years or so; so that everything would stay up to date.
When I got my first Android Smart Phone
I totally abandoned Street and Trips and started using Google Maps for my RV navigation. Why do I like Google Maps? First and foremost, it's free and it meets my needs.
OK I know that this is not the answer you are probably looking for. Yes, there are stand alone GPS units designed exclusively for RVers
, but I cannot give you a personal recommendation on any of them since I have not personally used one.
Since I cannot be of great help on this topic, I am going to open up this question to our visitors. If they have a recommendation for an RV GPS unit they can share it by adding a comment to this page by clicking on the "Click Here To Post Comments" link located near the bottom of this page.
