Thread: Truck GPS unit?

  1. #1

    Default Truck GPS unit?

    Both me and the GPS unit in my 2008 Duramax are a bit out dated and I am thinking about getting a GPS unit for my vehicle to help me find places when I am driving around America and Canada. What is a good one for vehicle use that will talk me to a place?

    I picked up a Rand McNally Tripmaker for my rig, its a RV oriented gps so it has campgrounds, fuel stops, rest stops, bridge heights etc etc programed in it. It has worked great for my last 2 trips to the east coast and back. Has a nice big screen to !! Lots of them on fleabay.

    Can't go wrong with a Garmin. I use mine for traveling the world, plus on the motocycle, Atv's and sleds. It's a NUVI 3590 LMT. The LMT stands for Lifetime maps and traffic. It's been thru the hellish heat of Arizona, the cold of Lake Louise, the dampness of being out on the river and the blue water without issues, also endured the vibration and occasional soaking riding the atvs or the bike. Only drawback is that it prefers to be plugged in versus running off it's internal battery.
