RV guidance you can count on

The RV 760LMT portable navigator combines Garmin's reliable guidance, meticulous mapping, RV-centric routing, and convenient extras to help you enjoy your life on the highway. This handy travel companion boasts an easy-to-read 7" display and a powerful built-in speaker to deliver spoken directions you can hear over road noise. It also offers a free traffic-info service so you'll know about congestion along your route, as well as four free map updates per year, to ensure you're up-to-date. Voice-activated guidance lets you search for destinations safely, so you can keep your eyes on the road and hands on the wheel.

RV-friendly routing

The RV 760LMT includes a database from America's RV Parks & Services Directory, giving you instant access to nearly 20,000 sites in the U.S. and Canada. You'll be able to find RV parks and campgrounds quickly, and you can narrow your search by type of amenities desired, including pet-friendly, on-site laundry, electric hookups, Wi-Fi®, and more.

The RV 760LMT also provides specialized routing for RV-related restrictions on most roads in the continental United States, Alaska, and Canada. You can specify height, weight, length, and width criteria, and the navigator will provide the best, safest route to your destination. If you're entering an area with a different posted speed limit for trucks or multi-axle vehicles, you'll get an alert for that, too. You'll also receive state border notices, sunrise/sunsets, mile marker info, and the grade of your current road. And you can add a rear-view camera to the navigator's input so you can see what's going on behind you if you have to back up.

Garmin RV 760LMT portable RV navigator

Accurate, easy-to-follow directions

The big, high-resolution touch display shows you everything you need to know from the driver's seat. It offers detailed road maps of the entire continental United States, Alaska, Canada, and Puerto Rico, plus urban areas in Hawaii and Mexico. You'll hear text-to-speech voice prompts that say actual road names at turns, like "turn left on Green Street," instead of "take the next left."  The navigator gives you easy-to-understand spoken directions using landmarks, buildings, and traffic lights, so you don't always have to keep an eye out for street signs.

Garmin's Active Lane Guidance feature offers regularly updated animations of your best lane option, not just when you're coming up on the next maneuver. Speed limit warnings help you drive in a conscientious manner. Realistic views of complicated intersections make it easier to get through unfamiliar areas so you can get to the relaxing parts of your journey more quickly.

Hands-free operation and Bluetooth®

The RV 760LMT's main guidance functions are voice-activated, so you can use your hands to keep your mobile home on course. Simply say the keyword, and you'll be able to find a nearby point of interest, establish a route, or locate a contact without touching the navigator.

The RV 760LMT's built-in Bluetooth connectivity allows you to conduct phone calls hands-free with your compatible phone. You can keep in touch with friends and family without diverting your attention from the road ahead. Most points of interest in Garmin's database include the phone numbers, so you can call ahead to make reservations at restaurants or check availability at nearby campgrounds.


Garmin RV 760LMT portable RV navigator

Free lifetime traffic

The RV 760LMT includes a FM-TMC traffic-info receiver which keeps you updated on potential delays in most metropolitan areas. The navigator can offer detailed information on the cause of the delay, and save you time by finding a quick way around the problem. You'll pay no subscription fees for the life of your navigator.

Smartphone compatibility

You can pair the RV 760LMT with your iPhone® or Android™ smartphone to take advantage of Garmin's Smartphone Link app, which allows the two devices to share information, such as saved and recently found locations, where you parked, and your current destination. You can also subscribe to dynamic services from Garmin for more road-friendly content like weather reports and fuel prices for an additional fee. Data charges may apply for using Smartphone Link — you'll want to check with your service provider.

Plan your adventures

No more wasting gas as you sit there typing in your RV -- you can use Garmin's BaseCamp online tool to map out your next journey ahead of time, then upload the finished route to the RV 760LMT before you hit the road. You can mark waypoints and tracks for off-road fun whether you're into hiking, biking, fishing, or just exploring the scenery. You can also share the results of your travels with Garmin Adventures, a free way to swap GPS details with other explorers online. You can create timelines with photos and videos for your trips, and even find new paths to undertake.

Written By New Rver, Texas on Friday, July 31, 2015

Product so far works as advertised. This is my first venture into the GPS world.

Pros: Easy to read and operate. Looking forward to my first long trip for true test.

Cons: Tried out in areas I am familiar with and it seems to route the long way around.

Garmin RV 760LMT

Pros: Have used this unit over 2500 miles with a 32' Motor Home and experienced just minor issues. Like the large display, which lane to be in ti turn and plenty of warning before exit. Also alerts for school zones, speed zone changes, and some construction zones. This is the best of the pack of RV units.

Cons: No fuel usage tracking, sometimes says restrictions for RV not known on some roads, no propane restrictions.

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

Very pleased with the quality and information display. Learning curve is short and user friendly. When pulling a large RV all safety related info is appreciated. I have purchased six Garmin units over the past years and have not been disappointed. Thanks!!!

Pros: Quality, information display, ease of use.

Cons: updates are slow to download but are included free in the newer units.

Seems to work well

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

I have so far just 'test driven' with this GPS about 500 miles though without our 5er hooked on. So far it has shown to be a pretty decent GPS and pretty accurate. It did miss a marked 10 foot railroad tunnel that's over 100 years old and shows sharp curves where they are sweeping, but that's not a major problem for my use. I am a bit disappointed that I haven't seen a propane warning though everything else needed seems to be there. I'm happy that I didn't order the camera option after seeing a friends. The picture for the money that camera costs is horrible.

We will be taking an extended trip next month and may have further comments or another review.

Pros: Large screen, easy to read and a familiar user interface as I have still use 3 other Garmins in vehicles

Cons: No propane warning and surprisingly, no fuel monitor/usage which my Nuvi 2597 has included You don't get a manual beyond an easy set up. You need to download from the Garmin website and print

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

Exactly what we need for our RV. Large, clear screen screen, loud voice, warnings about tight turns and overhead clearance and lane recommendations have sigificantly reduce our driving stress.

Pros: Large screen, clear voice, lane recommendations, RV specific POIs, speed warnings and RV size specific warnings.

Cons: No fuel usage tracking

Great RV Product

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

Easy to see while driving. Liked timing of upcoming terms, view of intersection / signage on freeway. Tried in car but left in RV mode, was warned that road might not be suitable for RV. Voice command worked well.

Pros: screen size, timing of voice commands, RV warnings, traffic issues.

Cons: battery life

Just what we needed!

Written By Folsom Bill, California on Saturday, July 04, 2015

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

Using a smart phone just wasn't working as a GPS for our new RV. After reading reviews on the RV GPS's available we decided on the Garmin. We have only used it on one trip so far but it has worked well. It will take a few more trips to try everything that comes on this model. We would recommend it anyone looking for a GPS designed for RV travel.

Pros: Large clear screen, lots of features, user interface easy to use.

Cons: Forget the window mount. Order the bean bag mount. It gives you many options of where to put it and is really secure.

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

Unit is typical garmin in ease to use and reliability. I've used other brands for my motorhome but find this unit thus far has worked well. With the available download of garmin base camp it does make it easier to set up a trip. Nothing to compare tontine now discontinued ms street and trips, but pretty good. Garmin presently had 3 at cost additional apps for your cell phonevthatvwill display active weather, active traffic, and location pic. I have not tried these yet but they have mixed reviews on the apps. Bluetooth works well for use as a cell phone hands free if you wish. The traffic ahead transpondervprovidecworkscwell in metro areas

Pros: Garmin, free upgrades,maps are are pretty reliable

Cons: Without using base camp you can't easily drag routes tomusecaltetnstevroads you must set up way points. You can do this with their base camp. But no other gps doescthatveither. At least garmin gives you base camp

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

Purchased new Gps from crutchfield ! Delivered on time, great price.I did explain to them that I would be using the unit in tandem with a third party back - up camera,as the one that could have been purchased with the unit was not as good of quality. Upon receiving the garmin in the mail and reviewing the instructions. I assertained the need for a garmin video cord. I was suprised that Crutchfield did not stock or have access to the cord. I did due diligence on the cord and found one at a different vendor.

Pros: Great service, price and delivery !

Cons: Carry accessories for the major items you carry or, let's go with one stop shopping!

Nice screan and can be easy to install

Written By JoeyO, Alexandria, Virginia on Sunday, June 21, 2015

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

I installed this on a 2015 Volvo XC 60 and it was a Pain in the rear. I tried it on my 2006 F-250 and I could install it in about 20 minutes. Volvo was not helpful at all when I asked for schematics or guidance and there are very few Youtube videos for the Volvo. Crutchfield had little data on the XC 60 either.

The camera is good and I like that you can adjust the lines to assist with backing up. I used a hose for guidance then adjusted it to match the hose. My wife likes the screen much more than her I phone 5 for navigation and the suction cup that holds it in place actually work.

I would highly recommend this for a truck. I would not recommend it for a SUV if the backup light are not on the lift-gate. Getting the wiring from the license plate to the backup light on the Volvo was very difficult.

Overall I really like the screen and the camera adjustments. I'm sure for a RV it would be an easy install. It was easy to install on my F-250 and very difficult on my wife's Volvo.

Pros: Nice Screen and you can adjust the guide lines on the camera. Easy to install on a Pickup

Cons: not easy to install if the backup lights are not close to a mounting location for the Camera

Garmin RV 760LMT

Written By Gary K, Pennsylvania on Tuesday, May 05, 2015

Got this in March when I got my RV and went on the road in April to Florida. Worked well until we got to Jacksonville and we were in slow moving traffic, then it froze up and we had to play with it and finally held in the power button for a time until it re-set. Then on the way home we stayed in some of the states to see different things and in South Carolina we visited a Plantation and when we were finished we wanted to go buy groceries etc, so we went onto the shopping guide and picked the nearest store and it told us it was 1.5 miles down the road, so we made the right hand turn and went down the road, when we got to the spot it told us the store was on the left, only problem was that there was a thick forest there and not even a driveway let alone a store. Then in Virginia we wanted to spend the night at a campground to visit Montecello the next day and we checked it for the closest one and it said it was KOA, so we picked that one. The directions there were accurate, but when we got there it told us to turn left into the campgrounds but it was a right hand turn to get there on the left there was a forest. When we got back home we needed to get it inspected for Pa and being new to the area I found a garage and put in the address and it took me 20 miles out of the way and again when it told me to turn into the garage there was nothing but trees, so I called the garage to get directions and we were no where near it. Disappointing.

Pros: Screen size and all the way it breaks down the road when exiting the highway telling what lane to be in and being able to find different locations by searching the provided apps

Cons: Accuracy

Very good !!

I couldn't be happier. For RV use this is a MUST. The user friendly directions are amazing. Finding an overnight site couldn't be easier. traffic information is vastly improved over earlier models. The backup camera is a plus.

Cons: Cost is a bit much. limited voice options camera is not the best

Cons: None at the point

Received very quickly. The screen is clear and very large making it easy to view from farther away. Setup and charging was quick and easy. Operation without a manual was pretty simple as well. Will be using it for a cross country trip.

Cons: No manual is included as in the case of many electronics. You must go to the website and download the manual.

RV-760LMT W/ Back-Up Camera

Written By SteveC, Tampa, FL on Saturday, December 27, 2014

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

I caught this on a super sale at Crutchfield. Got it for $350. I am somewhat of a Garmin Bigot, so I expected it to be fantastic. I was right! I installed the camera on the back of my 31 foot trailer, and it worked perfectly from the cab of the truck. I had ordered the 50' cable anyway, so I went ahead and ran it to the front of the trailer to put the transmitter nearer the GPS, and out of the weather. The voice command works great. My truck doesn't have bluetooth for my phone, so that feature was an unexpected bonus. I can't say enough good about this product.

Pros: Typical Garmin ease of use and great features, especially for people who plan on using it with an RV. Compared to other alternatives with a wireless camera, the price is awesome.

Cons: Can't think of a single negative.

Typical Garmin

Written By Jasel, Allentown,PA on Friday, October 31, 2014

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

I'm not sure why a 7" screen on what appears to be a larger version of an economy model would warrant the sales price. I am an owner of several Garmin GPSs, and I thought this would offer some nice improvements over earlier models. It does have an RV listing built in, but like gas stations, doesn't tell you if its on your route, just how far away it is. With smartphone apps flooding the scene, the last holdout for a desire to use a GPS are fading. I prefer Garmin over other brands for a seemingly better routing accuracy, but the all seem to differ and from the appearance of this one, I doubt it has adopted the advances of learning routes that modern versions have. Of course,with Garmin discontinuing models like they were seasonal clothing styles, there's no telling if the price reflects what technology is hidden inside. At least I haven't had this one long enough to determine. However, it does not appear to have a glass screen. So after just shelling out $130 for a repair to my 5" Garmin that suffered a short drop to the pavement, that might be a welcome advantage.

Pros: Large screen. RV database included. Lifetime maps.

Cons: Traffic reporting still pretty lame. Garmin still appears to judge your trip time as if there are no traffic lights or stop signs to slow you down Progress in GPS technology seems slow compared to what mobile touch screen devices have to offer.

A Great GPS Unit

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

I haven't used the unit for a trip yet but have gone through the familiarization videos on the Garmin website and have checked it out locally and am very pleased so far. I'm looking forward to using it on an 2200 mile round trip to Idaho starting this weekend. I believe it will surpass my expectations.

Pros: Overall capabilities, documentation, size and clarity of screen.

Cons: The menu mapping is not always as intuitive as it could be. It will take some time to learn.

RV 760 LMT thoughts

Written By Sodflyer, Cleveland, MO. on Tuesday, October 21, 2014

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

For the most part the RV760LMT is a very good unit. there are a few things I would change, and a couple of others that need change. The Unit is very accurate, however it does not show all available RV Parks in the area and when I tried to put in the address of the one I wanted to go to the auto complete feature would not let me put in the whole address. The only way I was able to put in the address was by Long and Lat once I had already arrived at the Park. The miles per hour feature was also very inaccurate above 60 mph. I don't know if that was my speedometer or the GPS readings.

Pros: Big screen display, I like all the added information available during the trip. The Backup camera was much better than I had heard from other reviews. The directions were clear and easy to follow.

Cons: I don't like the auto complete feature on the address inputs and the fact that not all RV Parks are listed. If there were a way to turn off the auto complete feature that would be my first change. I would also like some night vision on the Camera, especially for the price paid. Sometimes plans don't work out and you arrive at your destination after or near dark and the camera is no good then.

I have not used it on a extended trip where I did not know the route, but the system has proven to be very handy with displaying speed limits, food, issues with traffic etc.

Pros: Large screen provides a quick look, speed limits posted are an asset with the exception of work zones, directions easily programed

Cons: Some roads have no available information; Work zones speed limits are not posted correctly; does not always suggest the truck route correctly

works great but if you have a trailer you will need the extension cable for the camera Crutchfield is the best place to get this unit we love it it boots up real fast and finds what you search for very fast too like gas stations stores camp grounds etc

Pros: see above

Cons: sometimes tells you what lane to be in a little late if your pulling a camper it may take a little longer to move over 3 lanes

Garmin RV 760LMT

Written By Mark E, Rocklin, CA on Thursday, April 10, 2014

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

Just used this unit in my motor home from El Mirage, AZ to Rocklin, CA via Las Vegas, NV. The unit worked okay with a few glitches. We came north in Arizona on US-60 to US-93 without any issues. We then went west on I-40 for about 15 miles to the continuation of US-93. After leaving Barstow, CA, heading north on US-93, the unit keep telling me to turn around and head south. Obviously this was incorrect. When I scrolled through the turns, I found that it was going to take me south for a few miles and turn me back around to the north direction on US-93. The speed limit when towing in CA is 55 MPH. On most roads the unit properly indicated this limit when non-towing vehicles were legally running at 65 or 70. The problem is that on some parts of CA-58 or CA-99 the unit showed the speed limit at 60 or 65, the maximum 2 axle limit at the location, not the 55 for more than 2 axles. My motor home has a backup camera so I did not purchase this unit with that option.

Pros: The unit is case specific for RV's.

Cons: The errors as stated above in my review and the cost of the unit.

Garmin RV760

Written By NYRVR, Upstate NY on Wednesday, April 09, 2014

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

We bought this to replace a Garmin purchased in 2007. I guess like all things electronic they are vastly improved over 7 years. This new GPS seems to be perfect. We have not used it in the RV yet, but I set it up in RV mode and took a 500 mile trip. It worked as described. The mount is not particularly stout, ok for car but probably not RV. I bought a Ram mount for it for the RV and then another powered dock for the car.

Pros: Maps are accurate, only one error noted over 600 miles of use, and it was minor. Advance warnings of speed zones and turns is very helpful, especially in an RV. In the Berkshire Mountains I was on a twisting state highway with lots of steep grades, sharp turns, and speed changes. The GPS called them about a half mile ahead of time. Display is bright and crisp and the auto adjust for night time works as described. The voice command feature is really fun, and saves all those screen entries.

Cons: This is more of an FYI than a Con, you really do need the manual to understand all the functions. To get the manual, you log and register on the Garmin site, then print the 24 page manual.

Garmin RV 760LMT

Written By Pescador, New Smyrna Bch., FL on Sunday, February 09, 2014

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

Installation was easy, but performance of back-up camera was poor. GPS system worked fine. I returned this product due to the poor quality of the monitor image when in back-up mode. Image was very grainy and undulating (wavy). I was disappointed with this low level of quality coming from a first rate company like "Garmin."

Pros: Easy to install. GPS system worked very well.

Cons: Back-up camera image was poor. Price is expensive for overall quality.

A nice large screen GPS

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

First there's the great Crutchfield service. The Garmin is easy too set up and use. While I haven't put it through all it can do I believe it will function as well as anything out there.The 7" screen is much easier to see in my RV than the 5 inch screen I was using.

Pros: Easy to set up and use. Much easier to see then the smaller screens.

Cons: Price is a little high.

Don't get camera

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

The 760 LMT is a very good product, although voice recognition is still not that great. I would not recommend the BC-20 camera which can be purchased as a package or accessory to the GPS. Even with the transmitter right next to the radio, the video quality is very grainy and unclear.

Pros: Large display Lifetime map updates Customize to your RV

Cons: Voice recognition still needs some work Wireless rear view camera is not ready for prime time

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

I bought this for my pickup to have a back-up camera I could install myself. I'm very happy with both the navigator and the backup camera. The installation and wiring for the camera was quick and easy even though my mobility is limited. I just needed to purchase two quick connectors and some small cable ties. The navagation unit is first class, intuitive, and accurate. I do not use the RV functions. An unexpected plus is that backing up my hitch ball to my utility trailer is visable, making it an easier one man task.

Pros: Very large display but not obtrusive. Installed without modifications. No separate back-up display and navagator to clutter the cab.

Cons: The camera mounting bracket is somewhat brittle. It should be stamped steel. I could make a better mount with simple tools and materials if motivated. The video quality is functional but not excellent. I believe this is a function of the camera and not the display.

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

I've only had the unit since Christmas of 2013. This really wasn't the unit I had wanted for my RV, but this was the one that was purchased for me for the holidays. I did some research on it to make sure that it was compatible with a backup camera, and was glad that it has that option. It was extremely easy to install using the windshield suction cup mount, and once turned on it very quickly connects to the GPS satellites to find where you are. I was also extremely happy to learn that it is bluetooth capable as my truck is a 2003 model without built in bluetooth, and that feature works very well. My son and I were testing how accurate the GPS unit was, and as we would pass a speed limit sign we counted to see how soon afterwards the Garmin would change the speed on the unit. Almost every time it would only take about 2-3 seconds to adjust to the new speed limit. It was also very easy and quick to enter my rv's information into the unit and I can't wait to hook up the camper and travel using this new Garmin. This is a great product!

Pros: Accurate GPS, Bluetooth works nicely, Backup camera capable, RV specific guidance

Cons: None

Excellent for it's designed purpose

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

Purchased this for use in new Motorhome. I love the large 7" display - very useful on a motorhome dashboard that sits far back from driver's seat. The user interface is somewhat different than what I am used to in a Garmin unit, but am getting used to it. It really is designed for an RV user. Touch screen response is quick, I have had this about two weeks and on two long trips, and seems to have taken me on the best routes. With a few changes it would be perfect. I highly recommend.

Pros: Large display. Quick response. Can be configured to the characteristics of a particular RV (length, width, etc.)

Cons: Presentation of saved POIs makes recall rather cumbersome.

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

We have had this GPS since AZ. and for about 2 mo.. It should be a requirement for all long RV's (24 feet on up). It works so far as promised. It might send you farther in RV mode, However, it makes sure you can navigate comfortably through Cities. I'm hauling a 38.6' Mobile Suite and have 0 problems. I had an RVS back-up camera installed in the RV. Have always had problems with the wireless types.

Pros: Everything that is promised

Cons: So far nothing

RV760 is Great, but BC20 Camera has problems

Written By wymapper, Cheyenne, WY on Tuesday, November 05, 2013

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

Poor design of the BC20 rear camera system. I purchased the Garmin RV760LMT Navigation System with a Garmin BC20 wireless rear camera from Crutchfields. My problem is with the poor design of paired wireless BC20 camera. I'm installing it on a 33' 5th wheel. The camera location and wireless transmitter are within the approximately 45 ft feet specified. I couldn't get good reception, even when raised 2'. To get good reception I had to move the transmitter forward 25-30', to within 20' of the receiver. The problem is the poor design of the cable system. It was designed with a plug between the camera and the 12 volt power source wires. There is no plug or extension cable capability between the 6" power source wires and the 2' cable to the transmitter. The transmitter has to be within two feet of a power source. Most RV users use either the license tag light, the backup lights, or the clearance lights at the rear for wireless camera power. The transmitter needs much longer cables to be in a position to send a adequate signal to the RV760 receiver.

I ordered Garmin's 50' cable extension. The supplied plug is not weather proof. I had planned to splice the extension into the wireless antenna cable. These four wires are about 24 gauge twisted, with shielding. One pair of wires has a very small white wire rapped with a stranded wire. I'm still trying to solder and shrink rap these cables, the other end I'll have to do on top of the RV.

Pros: The RV 760 is well designed and integrated GPS navigation system. It's much better than any of the four other Garmin systems I have purchased, including a NUVI 1370. I would buy the the RV760 again, but would purchase one of Crutchfield's wired camera systems. I'm using a ProClips mount with the RV760 large screen, which gives you a good heads up display just to the right of the steering wheel at the top of the dash.

Cons: Without the camera I would have given the RV760 a 4.5 to 5 stars. The BC20 wireless camera wiring is poorly designed and not flexible for any 25' to 42' RV, except for a small camper van or pickup camper. I defiantly would NOT recommend purchasing the BC20 wireless camera. The fix would be very easy for Garmin, just add a weather proof plug for an extension capability between the power wire & the transmitter. Garmin has not been responsive to my problems.

I have had 6 garmin units since gps units have become available, and this unit for me is just so, oh, so much nicer than any from the past. I have really appreciated each of the units that I owned, but this is a big step forward. I am not that easily amazed with most electronic advances, but this is one giant leap for mankind. it is not perfect by any means, just better than I expected. thanks garmin for leading the pack...
