The 5 Best RV GPS Systems As Of June, 2017 (And 11 Other Models)


If you are planning to go on a road trip with your RV, one of the most important things you will need is a GPS unit that is specifically designed for RV drivers and campers. Having a specialized RV GPS unit will help you in planning your trip and let you avoid the hassles of guessing where certain RV-specific facilities might be.

This page lists the newest RV GPS units that provide RV-specific information and generally include a built-in tripbook, such as the Good Sam Trailer Life directory in the case of Magellan models and, for Rand McNally's TripMaker RVND units, of course, the Rand McNally trip book, which existed in print way before GPS systems were invented. Expect features like customized RV routes (so you can avoid restricted areas and roads with low underpasses), RV parks, electric hook-ups, on-site laundry and water, and other useful establishments along the way, among other things.

The GPS models shown here were designed specifically for RV use and have displays of at least 4.3 inches.
