Summary: I have had this for three years now and Rand does not do regular updates, the I-580 here in Reno has been requested for 2 years now and still no updates, the GPS tells me it is out of date but support says it is not and my software is messed up. Did they fix it, nope just told me its messed up.
Summary: It took us a while to figure out how it worked, but once we did we really like some of it features. Gives us better directions then our old Garmin did. Takes us on more direct routes and better roads.
Summary: I purchased the Rand McNally tripmaker 7710 in 2012 and didn't use it until June of 2013. It's main flaw is the battery, when it goes dead the unit doesn't work. It has died on both large trips I have used it on. I leave it plugged in my truck and the house between trips. Now it has died completely. I am sure all that is needed now is a new battery but I am not going to bother. It's junk. It has some good functions but because of the battery it's worthless.
Summary: Easy to operate and gives good directions in most all locations. The most helpful application is the RV campgrounds and services. I purchased the dash mount holder and didn't particular like it. It was hard to see the screen and adjust. We later used it on the motorcycle for emergency campsite locations. Great product and I highly recommend it to RV travelers.
Summary: This GPS finds signals inside a metal RV cab and inside my house where my Garmin will find none. The RV-related information is quite useful. I'd give it a 5 except the tip of the round DC outlet plug is plastic and broke.
Summary: RVND 7710 suddenly stopped working on our first big road trip to the mountains of N.C. Called Rand and they wanted us to send the unit back leaving us without a GPS. We didn't even have a car. We were totally stranded. They finally agreed to allow us to send the defective unit back and we would be reimbursed for a purchase of a NEW unit from the local Camping World. That was in August of 2013.
