The 5 Best RV GPS Systems As Of January, 2018 (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.

More RV GPS systems, sorted by the latest model first:

Rand McNally OverDryve 7 RV

The 7-inch Rand McNally OverDryve 7 RV GPS is the RV version of the OverDryve 7 Car GPS, which obviously targets camping-eager customers with the same specs, including a 1280 x 800 display resolution, traffic alerts, and an 8-megapixel rear camera that can act as a dash cam, but its POIs have a slight tweak in that they lean more on the RV side

Display size = 7 inches

Garmin RV-BBT601

With only a standard 6-inch display and typical 20000 RV campgrounds and parks specs in its arsenal, Garmin added some uncommon features to make the Garmin RV-BBT601 stand-out: a function that allows the RV GPS to be used as a tablet when it is not docked or connected to the mount and the Multizone technology, which enables users to individually control the speakers of their RVs

Display size = 6 inches

Rand McNally RV Tablet 70

The 7-inch Rand McNally RV Tablet 70 gets true to its name by adding tablet features, such as Wi-Fi compatibility, a 5-megapixel dash camera, and because of its Android nature, the ability to download applications, to RV GPS specs like lane guidance, traffic predictions, and camper POIs along the route

Garmin RV 770 LMT-S

Barging in the saloon, guns blazing with its list of 20000 campsites and side-to-side display, this 7-inch (it's actually 6.95-inch) RV GPS is armed with specs like elevation display, road restriction and the ability to filter places depending on the user's preferred amenities, yet the apparent lack of an SD card slot and camera wounds can be seen.

Display size = 6.95 inches

This 7-inch GPS caters to RV drivers with RV-specific features (RV routing, RV POIs, toll estimation, etc.) and is equipped with 8GB of memory.

Display size = 7 (6.1"W x 3.4"H) inches

Aside from having the Android OS and RV-specific POIs, this 7-inch GPS tablet can also function either in car or RV mode.
