Summary: I have owned my about 5 yrs I travel alot, Id like to tell you all the things good about the RVND 5510, ok so 1. Use it for skipping on the water, make sure its a calm day,and flic your wrist when you release it. 2. Use it for target practice, great for the kids with 22cal. or pellet gun! 3.
Summary: I have had this GPS for several months. Battery life out of the box was less than an hour, so to program it before a trip in the house you have to have a 110 v charger. The map updates are two years behind. I have "Told Rand" several times, to no avail.
Summary: Three years of usage and this is what I have: Very poor screen that is difficult to read in sunlight even with the accessory shade; Malfunctioning metric/English speed/distance algorithim which gives false readings, way off the mark; Delay in charting and audio with respect to turns even at slow...
Summary: I will begin by stating that I bought this unit right after it came on the market, something I normally would not do, but since I was about to start a trip in my RV I thought it would be a good idea and product.
Summary: First let me say this is a good GPS if you take the time to learn how it works. If you are one of those who hates directions and thinks you can learn it on the fly, don't call me when you find yourself in Moscow and don't know how you got there.
Summary: Don't buy it!!!! It freezes up constantly. We have gone back to our old Garmin, which is much more reliable. We paid over $300. for this unit from Camping World and neither they nor Rand McNally will stand behind their product. So RV'ERS stay away from this item!
Summary: I am disappointed with this unit. The routing was worse than my Garmin. We have a 39 ft. Class A RV and I input this information into the system. Why did it route us on a 2 lane, twisting road through the mountains? In an RV, speed and shortest route should not be the only options.
Summary: I purchased the RVND 5510 about two days before a long trip. I expected it to be somewhat up to date, so due to the lack of time I did not up date it. Fortunately, my trip was to a relative so I knew the roads and area. Before I left, I attempted to use the POI just to check the unit out.
Summary: On July 12 we left on a long trip across country. Out Rand McNally was doing a great job. We traveled for several weeks with not problem. Suddenly they voice messenger began to sound scratchy and was difficult to understand.
