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. I would prefer to stay on a highway. Also, there is one screen that advises you that your route takes you on dirt roads that must be cleared manually.
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. This should have been my first clue it is hopeless outdated. It failed to locate my bank, which has been in the same location about 5 years.
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. It has something wrong with the speaker and is of no use to us in this condition. This was the first use and we feel Amazon should at the least replace it. We did not use it at all in the 30 days you allow for return.
Summary: I give it a 2 because it says it had free lifetime maps and it did NOT. I called JMPrime, the seller; after some time on the phone they called me back and said to email my sales receipt to Rand McNally. I did that-waited; and then finally called them - they told me I had bought it 2 days too late to get free maps.
Summary: I selected this device for it's programing specific to the needs of RVer's. I tow a 13,000 lb, fifth-wheel trailer with a Heavy Duty, GMC pickup truck. The RV specific routing provided by this GPS significantly reduces the risk of getting into tight spots en route. It provides clear & timely warnings about road conditions ahead such as tight turns, curves & steep grades, major highway construction projects & sounds an alarm if you drive onto a road not suitable for your...
Summary: Very slow to load info does not have correct speed limits annoying speed warning voice. It took me off the highway in small town through some side streets then back to same highway I was on one exit south?? Screen freezes up far to often not allowing you to see next step.
Summary: Do NOT buy from TechNGnet! I purchased this particular RV GPS from TechNGnet for one reason: It was advertised as coming with Free Lifetime Maps. It was more expensive than the same GPS from other companies, including Amazon, but I believed the extra price was for the Lifetime Maps. It did not come with free lifetime maps. I queried the company via Amazon, and they responded they weren't responsible for what the seller advertised, they were just a distribution warehouse.
