A built-in dash cam and powered magnetic mount make the all-in-one 7” truck navigator a must have. Alert for upcoming bridge heights, steep grades and more are included in the custom truck route. Live services, such as traffic and weather, can be accessed via the Smartphone Link app. Easy Break Planning with timely notifications and a Truck & Trailer Services directory, is a great way to plan a break. Control dzl cam with your voice, and enjoy hands-free calling, smart notifications, and built-in wi-fi for easy map and software updates without a computer.
👤This thing is better than my old one. Within a year, that broke. There are unknown causes. It's built strong. Good mount. I use my phone to get traffic and weather updates. The picture is perfect. The sounds are clear. This thing is highly recommended by me.
👤I'm a truck driver and this is the best gps I've ever seen.
👤This is my first truck version and I have owned many other products. I own a Rand McNally 540 and it is blowing away. You can only input it manually with my voice recognition. The Farmin has a car mode so it acts like a normal gps without the truck restrictions. This thing has a dash cam that can be used to add a wireless background check. I believe the normal cost is 499.00. I refurbished this for a third of its original price and it is in great shape.
👤The refurbished unit was several hundred less expensive than the new one. We added a 3 year warranty just in case. The unit is new, but you can see a few scratches on the connection. The camera came with Micro SD cards. The forward warning and lane assist features are useful. We use it in a van. The dash cam quality is decent, but not as good as a cheaper off brand dash cam that we have in another van. It's nice to have everything in one unit, it's nice to not have to clean up the ports. The gps has worked well and was updated to the latest maps. When you first turn it on occasionally, it will restart, but you can turn it off and on again. It works well for the rest of the day. The rebooting is what they do when they have a few of these. A nice big gps has some nice features. Sometimes you have to change a route because it's not a map from the internet. In the middle of no cell service, the gps will work where other data based devices will not. If you do service and need a way to track vehicles without monthly fees or just want a nice gps for use, then this will do the job.
👤This is something I will never do again. The gps is garbage. I can not say it differently. The screen was not working. It took me a couple of days to get the updates. The gps can't find Atlanta GA. I got both maps with the update. Both North America and Europe. There is a I was happy about it. There is a Nothing is working. I am a professional truck driver. I take this with me on the road. On the first day, it could find the address of the sender and the address of the receiver. I tried again the next night and nothing happened. I tried to enter my home address, but nothing came up. The only thing that worked was to get to the truck stop. There is a I said not entirely. After an hour or two, it stopped working. It will be great if you get a warning on the screen that you have to press and accept to move on to the next screen. After a while, it will turn off and ask you to confirm your vehicle information, and then it won't continue to stop at the truck stop that you have selected. I am so disappointed.
It's easy to use a gps navigator. The maps are easy to see. alternate routes are suggested by the traffic company. Yes, the backup camera is compatible with BC 30 or BC 40. Voice activated and ability to pair with a compatible phone. Notable historic sites and the U.S national parks directory are part of the HISTORY network. Without a computer, built in wi-fi for map and software updates.
👤I used a cellphone as my primary navigation tool and purchased the DriveSmart 65. The cellphone navigation systems are great, but I didn't like the convenience of the stand-alone units. I didn't like the fact that the navigation apps weren't easy to see when I manually used the phone for a phone call. There are two more Unless you use a different app or download offline maps from the internet, there's no navigation when you don't have cellular coverage. There are 3 more I never found the offline maps to work for me, there was always a problem with resolution that I could not resolve. Offline mode was not always used to work in general. I tried some of the other free offline navigation apps, but they seemed to be behind in updates, and did not seem refined, leaving me with a slight but ever present apprehension in my mind. I didn't like the small screen size when in portrait mode, even though I had an iPhone Plus. There are five The navigation app on my cellphone ran in the background and was not visible to view. I didn't see all of the trip info functions that the vehicle navigators offered. The app navigators had the same trip info, but it was hard to see. The DriveSmart 65 was more expensive than the 55, but the extras screen real estate was worth a few extra dollars for me. It is hardware. The screen is beautiful! Great resolution and bright colors. The brightness is turned up all the way. The 6.9 inch is the perfect size for me since I like to have all of the trip data functions showing on the screen at all times while allowing for ample space for the map/ navigation which is the most important part. The screen seems to be made of glass, but I am not sure if it is scratch resistant. The frame has a minimal amount of bezel which adds to visual appeal but makes accidental touches easy when trying to adjust the postition/angle of the unit on the mount. The screen is responsive to touch and there is little lag navigating through the menus, as it should be for a device at this price point. The speaker is loud and clear. I don't know what processor is in the unit, but I hope it is an upgrade from last year's model. It is smart to get the best hardware within your means, especially if you plan on keeping the device for several years, to ensure it will be able to effectively run the software updates. I don't like the way the power cord plugs into the back of the device. It would be great if it was plugged into the side or bottom, because it would be easier to mount the device on a desk if the power cord was not sticking out. The mount is standard and works well for mounting on a window, but I have seen it fall off of a vehicle. I bought a friction dash mount from Garmin because it seems to work well for now. I can't state my findings because I haven't had the battery disconnected from a power source for that long. It is very easy to use the software. It seems that the years of production have allowed time for most bugs to be worked out. The high detail map option provides a lot of detail and is helpful in keeping the user oriented from a geographical perspective. When you zoom out with the intent to use it indefinitely, the unit will automatically zoom you back in to the default setting, even though it does not really want you to have full reign on the map. You can have phone notifications for email/text/etc to show on the unit if you sync your phone to it. The option to make and receive phone calls when you sync the device to your phone is available for those that may need it. The unit has the ability to update maps without a computer. After attempting to update the maps 4 times, I got error code each time and the device aborted the process. Maybe it is because my internet connection is not high-speed. It will be great to see if there is a similar issue among other people. The maps will have to be updated with a PC. Conclusions: The device performs well as expected. Excellent native route planning and accurate navigation. The screen is bright and high resolution. It's right in the sweet spot. I am not convinced that the features this unit offers are practical enough to justify the higher price. If the processor is better than last year's model, this is a good value. It was a factual decision. I don't have to use my phone as my main navigation when I have a stand-alone navigator. Happy with the purchase, even though I mentioned some things. I would recommend this to anyone looking for a navigator.
The display is built rugged and passed the military standard for drop test. You can get spoken turn-by-turn directions through your connected helmet or headset. Direct-to-device downloads and no annual subscription are available for BirdsEye Satellite Imagery. There are options for riding on curvy or hilly roads. You can easily manage and review routes, tracks, and waypoints with the help of a navigator. You can record your route with the track recorder and save it for future adventures. You can access live traffic and weather, share routes with other riders, and get phone notifications with the Garmin Drive app.
👤I don't know how many gpss I have used on a motorcycle. I think it's around 10. The motorcycle specific Gps are the first I have tried and they are too small for my liking. I have had it for about a year. My actual use has been limited because of the lack of appeal to ride in our Florida heat and humidity. There are a few observations about the screen. Even in direct sunlight, it is bright and readable. It's better than any of the previous ones I've used. Big plus! The data fields are easy to read, and the speed indicator glows red when you are speeding. The screen on the gps is glove friendly. Maybe this year I will be able to escape from Florida. The screen is a perfect size. The last 3 gpss I used were massive trucks. Big, easy to read, and extremely competent, but bulky. The larger, dimmer screen on the others is not as bright as the brighter screen on this, and the smaller overall size fits into the dash area better. Another plus. The Zumo is impervious to rain. The automotive/truckGPSs I have been using were not up to date. It's nice to no longer worry about the gps getting wet. The standard 1” ball mount was used for the gps. There is no need for special cradles or adapters. I decided to use the previously installed Ram ball and a 6” arm I already had in a big box of extra Ram stuff instead of using the bar mount and arm. The included dock/mount seems to hold the gps in place. You can remove the gps in a split second if you push a button on the back. The cable stays with the mount. The rubber cover for the contacts is included when the gps is not installed. Installation is very fast. Simply clip it back on. It's great if you have a place to securely store the gps. Some people may think that a thief can push the same button and walk away with your gps. The wiring was easy to follow. You need a negative and positive wire. I don't have to worry about messing with the gps because my car is wired to a hot-all-the-time circuit. The map retains detail when you zoom in, which is something I believe will make this gps more useful than any of the newer gpss I have used. I don't follow a pre-determined route on the bike. On the bike, I usually wing it, with only a general idea of where I'm headed, using the gps more as an electronic road atlas than just blindly following a route. You can still see the secondary roads with the map detail turned all the way up. Secondary roads are usually disabled above.3 or.500 miles. If you want to know where that little road you are thinking of exploring goes to, you might be able to see by zooming out, instead of having to scroll around and lose perspective. I prefer to adjust the zoom level myself when underway. The auto zoom seems to work at a useful level so far. I will try it. Time will tell... I just set it manually because I got tired of it zooming in and out on it's own. For the first year that I had this gps, I had a problem with how it handled points of interest. For the uninitiated and non-geeks, custom points of interest are lists of locations that may be of interest to you that would not normally be included with a gps's factory installed POIs. They can be a collection of stores or a collection of stores. The lists can be downloaded from a website, or you can make your own if you want to. The custom POIs were only accessible by digging into the menu system on the Zumo XT. A top level search didn't include custom POIs. I could live with that, but the worst thing for me was that there was no way to make the custom POI icons on the map. It's always nice to look at the map and see if one is close to something. The unit started showing custom POIs after the system update. "Up ahead" in the map settings menu must be checked to show your POIs. This will show the system icons for fuel, restaurants, and motorcycle related POIs, and it can make the screen a little busy, but hey, I'll take it. Speaking of POIs. I have found the pre-loaded POIs to be very inaccurate and frustrating to use. They have sent me on wild goose chases to businesses that were either notexistent or somewhere else. A big deal in a large RV is a frustrating annoyance on a motorcycle. Because of this, I stopped using Garmin's POIs a couple of years ago and now use other alternatives when searching for food, fuel, or anything else. Really? They could be better now. I don't know. I have been burned so many times that it will be a while before I try to use them again. I let the gps show me the nearest gas station for the first time since I owned it, against my better judgement. We went after it was shown to be close to us. I passed a gas station on the way that the gps didn't know about, and it took me about 5 blocks further up the street to a run down old building that was probably a gas station in a previous life. We were checking out an RV park for a future trip later that day, and I let the gps search for nearby RV parks on my phone. It didn't know that the RV park was established. The bottom line. If you need to find a place, don't use the POIs. You can enter the address into the gps by searching for it on your cell phone. The weather radar is connected to your phone through a wireless connection. I haven't had any showers that chase me around yet, but it all seems to work if you have a good wireless data signal. This feature is really cool. I have only used it for short trips, but if it's like any of my other current ones, they will find the address and you can be pretty confident they will get you there eventually, but will also sometimes choose strange routes. Always take a quick look at the proposed route, and always choose common sense over what a gps tells you. This thing is expensive. It's very expensive. It is the most expensive non-marine gps I have ever purchased. I would buy it again in a second. I still think it's great and would not want to be without it. As time goes on, I will probably update this review.
There are options for portrait and landscape mode on the large RV navigator. The size and weight of your RV are taken into account to find the best route. Road warnings to keep you aware of steep grades, sharp curves, weight limits and more. There is a directory of RV parks and services on the website. Control with your voice, and enjoy hands-free calling, and built-in wi-fi for easy map and software updates without a computer. Pre-made street maps for North America have coverage of the U.S., Mexico, Canada, Puerto Rico, and the U.S. Virgin Islands. You need to download the Garmin Drive app for GPX file sharing and access to live traffic, weather and smartphone notifications. The magnetic mount with video-in port accessory is required for the third-party wired camera to see behind your vehicle.
👤I have been using the RV 760 for the last five years and bought this to replace it. The RV 890 is a big step forward. It's not just a bigger screen. The software has been greatly improved, the user interface is more intuitive, the touch screen is more responsive, and the voice recognition is better. The RV 760 had a smaller mount that would lose its grip in warm weather, but the windshield mount on this thing is a beast. The RV 890 has a bunch of new features, including the ability to use Foursquare, which is a big deal, not because I use it that much, but because their database contains many POIs that aren't in the Garmin database. The ability to plan, save and retrieve multiple routes in advance and the ability to modify the unit's suggested route are two of the best new features. It will take a while to try all the goodies. This upgrade was worthwhile.
👤I have a number of portable and built in gps units, as well as a phone, Ipad and laptop. The unit is easy to read and operate after a reasonable learning curve. I would knock it down form perfect for two reasons. The voice recognition doesn't always recognize my voice. The permanent base was used because the suction mount didn't work in my application. You can plan a trip with multiple stops and pick it up at any intermediate stop. The suggested rest stops are based on time and distance. It has lifetime maps, traffic, and the ability to program from your phone.
👤I have been trying to get maps for this device from Good Sam and RV trip apps. Do not spend money on this device because it does not work.
👤I replaced the rand McNally unit because it was old and not up to date. What a difference there is. It's much easier to use the device. I was a bit uneasy when I approached it. It leads me to what I want to do. Buy this one. I don't have any complaints. None at all. George W. Ensley is a FCC licensed tech.
👤I'm hoping I have a bad unit. I'm a fan of the company. After using it for about an hour, my unit failed. It will not turn on anymore. It's going back. The magnetic interface works fine with the 20mm ball packed in the suction cup mount. The magnetic mount requires a 20mm ball and the dash mount requires a 25mm ball. A really bad shipment. It looked new, but it was a bad shipment. I'll try again.
👤I sent it back after I used it for the first time. RV Life is on a designated tablet. I thought the RV 890 would be more user friendly. The RV 890 is a mid-grade device. I spent hours on the device trying to download something. Routes with no luck. As I searched online, I found that other people are having the same problem. Purchase a nice tablet, download the RV Life app, and save money. You will get a better user interface, online and offline mapping and run your favorite music apps. This is not worth more than $500. Sorry!
CUBE will ring if you press find and use the app to show last known location on a map. If you leave something behind, there is a separation alarm. Free lifetime map updates and Live traffic are included with the 5.0” truck navigator. Alert for upcoming Bridge heights, weight limits, and custom truck route for the size and weight of your truck. The display resolution is 480 x272. There is an easy break plan with notifications for breaks and road signs to suggest nearby restaurants. Truck stops by brand and amenities are included in the truck and trailer services directory. Control dzl with your voice, and enjoy built-in wi-fi and hands-free calling. This device is compatible with Windows and Mac OS X.
👤I dislike this device. Disappointed with the navigation. 1. The designated Class truck routes are not shown. 2. It doesn't show the bridge heights. I need these two items in my gps device. The information is on my maps. The reviews of the gps manufacturers were not as good as the reviews of the other manufacturers, and I believe that the information and technology is not available with any gps manufacturers. The database will be very successful if a product is created with it. The fit and finish is what I like. Thank you, but you are disappointed.
👤The features are great, the display is great, and the main part is great. The navigation on garmins is terrible. It will usually bring you a longer way even with the shortest route applied. In truck mode, even with the size of the vehicle entered, it brings you down a lot of dead end roads. There is no need to purchase a separate unit for the better maps. This may be the case in Maine and New Hampshire, but not in other states.
👤The gps works well. I like that you can set it up for doubles and triples, I also like that it works better with my phone, and that it's easy to use with my phone. So far, it is very accurate.
👤This is a good tool for drivers. I was going to be delayed by 2 hours in Idaho due to construction. I was routed around it. It will warn you about accidents, construction, objects in the road, and other things that have been reported to it. The speed limits in Montana are not correct. It shows 70mph for back highways and 65 for freeways, but it has a state border off by about 4 miles. It needs some map updates. It will show you the weather in your route. A gps is not a rule. Use common sense and always read highway signs.
👤I would like to see a version of the maps for commercial trucks. The only way I could use a gps device was with my phone. The product does not recognize new roads or buildings. There is nothing in the new warehouses according to Garmin. That's where the maps come in. In Phoenix AZ, a new stretch of loop 202 going south is open since December, but not for Garmin. I wanted to get on I55 North from Damen Ave but my new $300 gps said "No trucks", which is not true. The navigation system should be less than $75. It is important for Garmin to keep its maps up to date. I spent $300 and updated my maps to be able to find a warehouse that was built more than a year ago. I'm planning to return the gps because it's not very accurate. I'll check out a Rand Mcnally, hopefully it's better than the other one.
👤This gps has gotten me in trouble with taking me down places. If I worked days I would be screwed at times from using this gps sent me down roads with cars parked on both side in residential areas.
There are maps of North America and free lifetime map updates on the Truck navigation device. Alert for upcoming Bridge heights, weight limits, and custom truck route for the size and weight of your truck. Current fuel prices, weather conditions, and crowdsourced and rated POIs are provided by Sophisticated Connected Services. New mileage and fuel logs are included in the enhanced driver tools. A Dash cam with loop recording and integrated G-force sensor. Usb cable was included. The camera has a video. The technology of wireless communication.
👤They didn't do any testing on this piece of junk. The map tells you to go one direction while the voice guidance tells you to go another. I was trying to get onto I55 N in West Memphis when it tried to get me to go left into oncoming traffic instead of taking the ramp on the right. When you are on the interstate, it shows you taking exits when you aren't, and it has to change the route when it learns you are still on the interstate. Even though most were useless, the TND740 always had an alternate route. This thing is a step backwards from the 740 except for the magnet mount, it hasn't fallen off once. I hope they put out an update soon.
👤I have used the gps for a month and it is more than enough. I like the new interface and graphics, but I don't like the fact that it takes more than 2 clicks to get what I need. I love how this is supposed to be a gps for truck drivers but it cares more for cars and RVs than I do. I don't know why they don't ask for driver input on how to better set up the interface, but I recommend the 740 because it's the only one that has everything on the main map. Don't buy this for the dash camera, it's terrible. Invest in a dash cam. Good luck getting anything usable out of the camera after the sun goes down because the quality is subpar. I got a video with my headlights barely visible. The aspect of the tablet is fine if you want to use it how you would on a computer. The dam mountings systems A+ on that interface were fixed. The interface for cars. The B interface is used for RVs. A dash cam. Buy at your own expense.
👤Totally disappointed. There are no current updates for the tnd80 that I have had. I ordered a new tnd. After charging, I registered it right out of the box. I did the update and went on to setup, but it froze up. It started working again after 20 minutes. I went to navigation and it crashed after 3-4 minutes. It crashed before I could get to a destination after 20 minutes. This went on and on. I plugged in the charge and tried it, but it crashed in less than 10 miles after I got an address. I had a heated discussion with a tech after I called, and I am sending the unit back for a full refund. I don't recommend this gps to anyone.
👤The first brick was expensive. It won't turn on if you unbox it. The second one does not do as well as the first one. The directions keep telling me to exit and reenter the interstates. There is a The tablets freeze up constantly. The tablet can't find alternate routes to save its life. I used 35 because I didn't want to take highway 77 in West Virginia.

👤It is large and easy to use, as you can see from the photos, it is around the size of my hand. More like a computer than a navigation device. Everything you can think of. There are games, radios, pictures, videos, and Sat Nav. I am very impressed by the price. The screen display is clear and never gets any trouble from the sun, even though the video might not do it justice. The gps navigation is very fast at loading.
👤Over the years, I've owned a lot of gps units. This is the best unit I have ever owned. The voice command feature can change the game. When you cross the centerline, the driver assist features alert you. This unit is great.
👤This project is disappointing to me. It's not learning routes very well. The most confusing way to get to my destinations is the most direct route. The large screen makes it easy to see on this product.
👤There was no paperwork in the package that I received the gps. I wanted to return the product but didn't have an address. Contacted Amazon, but they were unresponsive. What can I do?
👤Most cars will have a difficult time with this unit unless it is somewhere other than the windshield. Even though car is in the title, I think this unit is designed for larger vehicles. You may be looking for one for an RV as well. The unit is accurate and packed with features. Go through the settings before you go on your first trip to make sure you get the best use for your situation. This unit is a steal for drivers of trucks or RV's. I've used it in my car as a passenger side mount, like a police officer would have their computer. I drove by the voice commands. This can be in a better location if you are in a semi or RV. The speed limit alert is very accurate. It has games and media player capabilities for down time. The unit is a great price.
👤This gps is very good. I like it. The only problem I had was that the sticky didn't stick. Constantly falling. Didn't have any kind of glue. I usually don't put it on a window, but this time I had to. I had to glue the stand to the dashboard.
👤I thought I was buying a navigation device. I blame Amazon for this since I searched for it. My comparison is with my other unit. It takes forever to find the address and start directions for this brand. I can't read the street names because the screen size is too small. I don't like having to enter the city and then the street. If I prefer nuimer than street, I can travel from the correct city. I should have bought a device from the factory outlet. I kept this one because my daughter thought it was acceptable. The unit is cheaper at the store.
👤The display is clear and easy to use. The navigation is difficult. I entered searches for places like the Grand Tetons, but they were not found. It has to be returned because it doesn't support Map updates from the MAC. There isn't a detailed manual to find online, and the limited instructions it comes with indicates to work your support questions through Amazon. I need something that is easier to use and supports me.

👤This thing is a quality piece of hardware. It's durable, functional, boots up quickly and works well, unlike some gps units I've had. garmin's maps suck. This thing assures me that my maps are current and up-to-date, but they make mistakes all the time. It tries to send me to closed roads that no longer exist. The biggest flaw with this unit is that it doesn't have a "detour" button like previous garmin gps units. If it wants you to take a road that's closed for roadwork, it's as stubborn as a horse's ass, and will not change its mind. The only way to re-route is to manually enter a different route. garmin, bring back the detour button. It's better than not having a gps at all, but it still has some major flaws that will annoy you.
👤I own a lot of cars. I tried it for a week next to my maps and was not happy with the gps. Without the phone app it won't show traffic. When I received a phone call I didn't like the idea of connecting to my phone, it switched from my phone to the gps. That was making me nervous. I like to deal with maps on the internet for $400. It would be perfect if the bridge heights were known by the maps.
👤I took a few to get used to it. I like the fact that I don't need to hook up to a computer and go through a bunch of steps to update. I have been using for a month and it has been great. Don't leave your gps plugged in all the time, that's a tip I learned from the last one. You will shorten the life span of the battery by burning it up.
👤Can't find addresses on the screen.
👤The best gps I have had. It definitely could use improvement. It doesn't connect to a car, RV, or truck's stereo system to allow the sound of directions to be heard through the speaker system. Once you have downloaded the Garmin Drive app, you can use all of the features on it. The gps doesn't have an auxillary plug area. Sometimes it's hard to hear directions when driving. It's definitely better than my previous units. I would give it 4 stars if it was possible to play directions through the speakers.
👤The product was easy to setup. Sell asked about the item the same day. The service is top notch. Will buy from them again with hesitation.
👤Awesome! I needed a 7” screen. Can not go wrong.
👤I am happy with the device so far. It looks good and he is doing a good job. There is a job.
👤If I want to use this garmin, I have to plug it in all the time, and I don't think I'll buy any electronics from Amazon in the future.
The RV and camping enthusiast needs a navigator. RV navigator with high-resolution 6 95” edge-to-edge display. The size and weight of your RV are taken into account to find the best route for your vehicle. Always check the appropriateness of route suggestions and defer to the posted road signs. Road warnings to keep you aware of steep grades, sharp curves, weight limits and more. A directory of RV parks and services is included along with integrated content from Ultimate Public Campgrounds, Plan TripAdvisor, and more. Pair with your compatible phone to get access to hands-free calling and notifications, and also to have voice-activated navigation for convenience on the road. You can download the free app to access live traffic and weather.
👤This was what I needed after two nightmare trips up the East Coast of the USA using other map products and even a Truck gps on my phone. This thing is different from everything else I have tried because it allows you to define how much propane you have on board so that it is precise for tunnels. If you use the drive app, the traffic seems to be more accurate. I can't say the unit ever used the built in traffic feature, but it did an excellent job of calculated true time in traffic and actual arrival times. I liked the pictures of the lane and the street signs. I like the driver assistance alert, which is fun when the light is short and you are pulling 13k pounds, and the reminders to turn off propane due to state law. I haven't tried voice recognition yet because it asked me if I wanted to re-route to save 90 minutes when the unit alerted me of a traffic event. I said "yes" and it re-routed my voice. I found the up-ahead feature to be very useful, as it shows gas stations, rest areas and RV parks at every exit up ahead. It made me feel more confident that the truck would make it to the next fuel stop given how much fuel it uses while towing, and it was useful to keep the kids content so they knew when the next bathroom stop was. I can't use software like my built in phone navigation in the future. This is a life saver for an RV. It was well worth the price and saved me a lot of grief on my first road trip. Good job!
👤This is an upgrade from the nuvi 3597LMTHD. I use it to tow a travel trailer and also use it in a high-roof van conversion. The special features for RVs seemed to be a good reason to switch. It was disappointing initially. There are RV specific features and the screen is bigger, but not dual orientation. The user interface seems clumsy compared to the 3597 The internet link is useful, but limited since it only does the ocassional updates. Compatibility with the BaseCamp program is more important to me. I use BaseCamp on my laptop to combine scenic routes, gas stops and friend visits that are not possible with direct navigation. It can be done on the 780, but it's much easier in BaseCamp, where you can sit comfortably with a larger computer screen, access to a search engine and have no battery life limitations. I haven't thought about it yet, but having the link work for everything seems to be a great feature improvement. The RV780 is able to connect to the computer via the mini-usb/usb cable. It works with the Express. Waypoints are recognized by the BaseCamp program and can be transferred. Didn't transfer saved routes. I tried it with internal memory and it works well with the 3597, so I know the file is good. Before purchasing, I checked with Garmin Support and they said that it wouldn't be compatible. The agent I spoke with was knowledgeable. BaseCamp doesn't support the "Propane Tanks" setting in the RV780 vehicle profile, so those have to be deleted on the RV780 for the routes from BaseCamp to load. It's not a fix. The agent said that the propane tank can be re-applied after the routes are loaded. They have known about it since the RV770 does it, but don't have a real solution. The navigation, map, and feature search functions work well despite BaseCamp compatibility. The larger display makes it easier to read the map while driving and the extra resolution makes orientation ok, but the touchscreen seems not to be responsive as the 3597 is. The speaker is loud and clear. The unit is designed to be installed in the vehicle. It takes a counter-intuitive pull on the mount latch to remove it. It was designed to stay on the dash and do as much as possible without a computer. I can see how it's a good idea for a lot of people. I haven't used the app yet. I got a separate gps unit because I'm not dependent on cell phone coverage or data plan charges, but I may experiment and see how useful it is. Back on the road. As I learn more, there will be more updates.

👤The screen images are easy to see in the 7-inch size. It will be a great product. The setup is a bit confusing and the screens in their video are different from what I see on my device. Maybe I'm overestimating and everything will work out okay. There is an update on 12-20/2021. I took a trip to Venice Beach Florida and then to our hotel in Punta Gorda Florida using the Navpal. The screen would show the map and then go black about 10 seconds after you hit GO. I had to use the screen to get the map back up. You could only see the map for the brief periods when the voice was still there. This made it hard to visualize the places to turn and the best lane choice. The "Speeding" reminder is a feature that is annoying. It is not a gentle reminder. NavPal promised me a new gps when I contacted them after I returned from this trip. I had my new device three days later. It works perfectly after I tested it out. I want to change my rating to 5 stars because of their customer service.
👤It was easy to use. It held its own in a comparison against the other two navigation devices and was easy to use. The screen was not as bright, but clear and easy to read, and when I looked at it in the sun, it was very similar to the one on the TomTom. The TOMTOM had only a couple of voices that could read out the street addresses, and both of them were female. I already have a co-pilot that knows more than the gps. In the NAVPAL? My wife was fine with that because the man speak better and that was fine with me. The sound is not good, so only four stars. It is easier to use and has many features you would expect, like vehicle size, car, bus, taxi, or truck. It took a while for it to grab the Satellites, they were way over to the North East. I let it spin away and it worked great. It seemed that the other two were more complicated. This is the champion. I would buy it for a backup to the machines I already own, but we have yet to take it on the road, so an update will be coming. If the road test is as surprising as the living room test and learning cycle, then it could be the deal of the year. The sound quality is terrible. The speakers are terrible, but you can hear it. Guess what? It can be patched on your vehicle speakers. I will update after I return from a trip or two. This is a nice gps that is easy to use.
👤The product was purchased for my mother, she found it easy to see directions and needed a little help setting it up but she seems to get it at 80 years of age.
👤The Navpal has better reviews and has a life time map up dates. The American brand with Professional Technician teams in the USA was the selling point for me. English speaking customer support via phone or email, we understand our customers needs, and I like the easy touch screen on my old gps. I can find a gas station or store just by searching, I like the saerch featcher.
