RE: Motor Home GPS Phone AP

Having made one mistake after another, why not try something that actually works: CoPilot The problem with CoPilot is my CoPilot. She is the one who wants Garmin. Need I say more! :B

RE: Motor Home GPS Phone AP

Not exactly true! The Garmin has an RV mode where I was able to input the length, width, and height of my motor home. That is supposed to be the advertised reason for choosing the “Garmin RV 890 GPS” unit and running it in RV/Motor home mode! Yes the street through Lancaster was not RV impassable, but the recommended route to use the river ferry was impassable. I double checked with the owner of the campground and ferry. Motor homes and not allowed on the ferry and that is something that an RV rated GPS should know! If the GPS can’t take me to passable routes, I should just continue to use WAZE, it’s free! PS: before the motor home we also had a 38 foot fifth wheel towed by a Ford F350, long bed, crew cab!

RE: Motor Home GPS Phone AP

What a mistake! We listened to this post and decided on the Garmin 890. We just got home from our first trip with the new GPS, from North East, MD 21901 to Ferryboat Campsites in Liverpool, PA 17045. On the trip up to the campground, the Garmin took us through the center of downtown Lancaster PA. The road did not have an low overpasses, but it was stop and go on a crowded street where we passed 3 different delivery truck blocking one of the two lanes with parked cars on both sides. Like I said there were no obstructions, just some sharp downtown turns! Then, when we asked the Garmin for directions to get back home, the first thing it told us to do was to actually take the ferry across the Potomac River. First of all, the ferry is more of a visitor’s thing, it can only hold 3 cars at a time, but the Garmin wanted me to drive my 37 foot motorhome onto it with my car in tow! To top it off, the water level was low, so the ferry wasn’t even running for the past week! Time to call Garmin to see what I have to do to send it back within the first 30 days!

RE: Motor Home GPS Phone AP

My partner is leaning heavily on the Garman RV GPS system, but, while driving, there is no room to mount a sizable screen in front of me. Do any of the Garman versions come with an android phone interface? My WAZE app is just about useless because it will take us onto roads with low bridges. But it does have some great features that I’m hoping are available with a Garman Phone Interface (if one does exist). Will it talk to me and tell me when my next turn should happen? Will it show me an image of where I am on the road and where my next turn will happen? The screen I’m looking at right now on my home computer is for the RV 890 8 inch RV GPS Navigator. Like I said, I don’t have the space in front of me while I am driving to mount an 8 inch screen!

RE: Motor Home GPS Phone AP

After ready the replies to this thread, I think we are leaning to CoPilot RV. One question I have for the group is the cost. $29.99 a year seems fine with us, but does that allow the ap to be running on both of our android phones at the same time.

Motor Home GPS Phone AP

We used WAZE again to guide us from Codorus Campground to I83 South. Naturally, it gave us a route with a Rail Road overpass 12' 2" . We had to take a side road, block the road while we unhitched our car and back out onto the WAZE road in the opposite direction! WAZE is great for the car we tow, it uses real time traffic info to give us the fastest route from point A to point B. BUT, it does not allow you to enter the height of our Motor Home! Does anyone know of a good phone ap that can do both? Give us the best real time route that avoids low bridges! We are looking for an ap that will allow us to say we are a motor home and we are 12’ 8” high!
