    Trent and JackieWhy didn't I think of that? Tips and Tricks:
    April 29, 2020I'm a newbie here. We just recently purchased a pull behind 32ft" Flagstaff (2018). My question is what is recommended to use as a GPS but also gives guides to avoid low lying overpasses/ bridges that would be impossible to go under if we travel some scen...  more

      Jim & Sharon Ham April 29, 2020 We tend to keep our smart phone available for searches while going down the road, so we have a GPS for directions.  Purchased the Rand McNally Good Sam GPS from Camping World because all types of campgrounds were preloaded as POIs.  An RV GPS al...  more

      Brian&Nadine April 29, 2020 We started out with a Magellan with lifetime maps. Unfortunately, if you go to their website, they consider 3 years the lifetime of their units.

      Steve & Milly April 29, 2020 Garmin 770 is the way to go. When they say lifetime updates, they mean it.

      pokeysRVadventures April 29, 2020 The one below is what I've been using going on 9 months full timing. The Garmin 770. It allows you to set everything needed. Bridge height, the length, weight and height of your rig, speed zones ahead, curves ahead and much more. Free lifetime updates. It...  more

      Paul and Anna Manzella April 29, 2020 We have the Garmin 770. It will interface with your Bluetooth with a true weather smartlink app. User friendly and totally costumizing to your rig, ie height, width, etc. well worth it.

      Mike and Charlotte Freeman April 29, 2020 I use the Copilot GPS app. Shows you low overpasses tunnels toll roads kinds of stuff it’s not free but it’s worth it

      pokeysRVadventures April 29, 2020 You're welcome! You will be happy with it if you decide to purchase the Garmin 770.

      Trailerite April 29, 2020 I manually preview routing on the allstays app. It has low clearances indicated. But we have a 30 foot travel trailer and only need 11 feet. We've only needed to detour around a low clearance twice that I can recall. We can even clear the tunnels on t...  more

      Seann (the Canadian) April 29, 2020 I use the Garmin 770 little brother the 660 which fits on the dashboard of a truck a lot better it's an inch smaller. it still gives all of the low bridge low clearance and everything that you need for towing the trailer.

      Rich & Pat Tardell April 29, 2020 Also preview the route on Google maps satellite view. Zoom in on anyplace that looks suspicious for clearance or possibly weight restrictions.

      Marsha & Matthew April 29, 2020 The garmin for rv does all that. U put in specs of your rig and it knows all about low clearance and tight fits. We love ours.

        Rich & Pat Tardell April 29, 2020 M&M. GPS is good but not perfect. It doesn't have every bridge or low clearance. It also will not show such things as gullies/dips or raised RR crossings where you could hang up or bottom out.

      BLSMSS (Brenda &Marc) April 29, 2020 Hello Newbie’s from us visiting Texas. We map out our route a couple different ways first. We then go to Google maps and look at parts of our route we have never been on to check for low clearance. Use the road view, when see overpass, go back about 5 or ...  more

      LarandSus April 29, 2020 We've used the Garmin RV770 for three years and have rarely had a problem. It has not taken us into any dangerous situation.

        Bandit455 May 1, 2020 I want to second the Garmin RV Nav units. Mine has a few years on it (RVNav 740) but with lifetime maps and traffic updates, I see no reason to upgrade. Mine has a program bug that I hope has been cleaned up on newer units, or at least people know about i...  more

      Gary Johnson April 30, 2020 Please! Never put all your trust in electronics. It’s your lives and your RV. Use your eyes, and two pair are better than one. At the very least, one mistake means trying to back out of a dangerous situation. We have learned the hard way, thankfully with...  more

        Rich & Pat Tardell April 30, 2020 Even after double checking routes on satellite view, you need to watch ahead for sagging power lines, tree branches, street lights, signs, etc.
