The Question is what does everyone use? I have been searching on line and found Cobra 7700 GPS for $369.99 at Camping World that states it routes you on safe higways keeping your Motor home away from Low Bridges or any where 18 Wheeled vehicals should not travel. Also found Garmin NUVI 465T GPS, price unknown. I want to purchase one that will keep us out of trouble if that is possible. All suggestions are welcomed.

I have always used the Garmin and I am going to get me a new 465t for trucks. I had my old one take me down a parkway for car's only

Sticking to main roads is always the best. But we also carry the "Motor Carriers" Road Atlas" (a truckers atlas) that we can reference when if we need to as it gives not only bridge clearances but also weight limits.

As such, I can use any GPS as the price they want for the "special ones" I find to be kind of high.

Amazon has the 465T for $274.

I own the Garmin T 465 and have used it for over 10,000 miles and it has not failed me yet. Just program the dimensions and weight of you MH and it does a great job of taking care of you. It even warns you of steep downgrades and other trucker concerns.
