Any suggestions on the best GPS devices for RVs?  We had a Garmin about 4 years ago and it took us into some very difficult situations!  (Maybe they have improved?)

Garmin is your best bet, lots of models to choose from. I always say that a GPS should be used for amusement purposes only. Yes they can get you into sticky situations, you just have to be aware and not let it happen.

I agree that Garmin is the best, but you have to get one specifically designed for RVs. We have the 760, and there are a few newer models since then. Once we entered in the height, length, & weight into the system it has done a pretty good job of not steering us wrong.

However (BIG however) it is still important that you confirm the route as you travel. Don't ever trust any GPS system to keep you safe. In addition to paying attention to height and weight limitations, we keep a sharp eye out for steep grades, super sharp turns, or other things that we might have trouble with. "Driving" the route on Google Maps is a good way to get a preliminary look at the route, but even with that you've got to keep your eyes open.

Welcome to the forum - I look forward to seeing you here again.

Also concur with the Garmin products. No GPS will ever be perfect but Garmin has a top notch customer support team that is much better than the competition.
