Rand McNally RVND 7730LM GPS Review

Rand McNally was the first company to introduce a GPS unit specifically for the RV community, with features like custom routing for RVs and unique points of interest, or POIs, for RV travelers.
This fall, the Skokie, Ill., based company introduced an all-new RV GPS system, the RVND 7730LM, which is really one of the most amazing pieces of mobile RV technology I’ve ever used. “Rand McNally’s RVND™ was the first navigation device designed specifically for RVers. With this next generation device, we’ve incorporated an all-new look but more importantly, new features to better help RVers get the most out of their on-the-road adventures,” said Stephen Fletcher, CEO of Rand McNally.
The new design elements solve a number of issues present in other, older RV GPS systems. This 7-inch unit has all new hardware which includes a faster processor, which has plagued these systems for some time. The unit, with all its features and Internet connectivity, is lightning fast, and makes its calculations without a hitch. The device has a rugged feel, and the high-definition touch screen has two all-new graphical interfaces in addition to the classic Rand McNally interface, which are called Ice and Carbon. The Ice is a brighter white color, while the Carbon is black and dark greys. The included suction mount is substantial, and allows the GPS to be easily adjusted in our F-350 pickup. The unit comes with a cigarette lighter adaptor with LED power indicator and USB cable for connecting to your computer for all the important updates and for transferring POIs and custom routes from either their online trip planner, called Tripmaker, or from the Good Sam Club’s online trip planner.
I own last years model and think it is great
