Our take on the Garmin RV 760LMT

by Dominic Devito
Garmin

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.

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.

Free Lifetime Map Updates: The RV 760 LMT offers free lifetime map updates so you'll always have the most up-to-date maps, POIs, and navigation information. Map updates are available for download up to 4 times a year with no subscription or update fees and no expiration dates. Free Lifetime Map Updates are subject to Terms & Conditions.

nüMaps Guarantee: If you register your device on Garmin's website within 90 days of acquiring satellites while driving, you can check to see if a free map update is available. You must be able to connect your device via a high-speed internet connection in order to check the loaded map version and download the map update.

Garmin Express: You can connect the unit to your computer with the supplied USB cable for downloading map updates, custom POIs, voices, and vehicles. You will need to download the Garmin Express software to update your maps and register the unit. Garmin Express requires Windows Vista or newer or Mac OS X 10.7 or higher, running in 64-bit.

America's RV Parks & Services Directory: The Garmin RV 760 LMT includes data from America's RV Parks & Services Directory, a comprehensive directory of nearly 20,000 RV parks and campgrounds, and approximately 14,000 service locations in the coverage area. You can search for sites with various amenities, including hookups (full, electric, water, pull-throughs, dump stations), accessibility (pet-friendly, handicap, big-rigs), recreational (boating, fishing, swimming, cable TV, internet), and service (truck stops, towing, repairs, tires).

Customized RV Routing: The included maps feature RV-related restrictions, such as bridge heights, and related information for most major highways. After entering your RV's dimensions (height, weight, width, and length), the device will find routes that are suitable for your RV. While traveling, the unit will display the elevation grade of your current route.

Bluetooth: The RV 760 LMT has built-in Bluetooth technology. This allows you to sync the unit with a Bluetooth-enabled device for hands-free calling through its integrated microphone and speaker. You can make and receive phone calls as long as the devices are within 33 feet and paired.

microSD Card Slot: The RV 760 LMT has a microSD card slot so you can store and use optional cityXplorer or marine maps (available from Garmin), or download custom voices and vehicles from the Garmin Garage.

Windshield Mount: The RV 760 LMT features a mounting bracket that holds the unit securely in place. The mount contains the connection jack from the traffic receiver/car charger and the ball socket for the included windshield mount. This allows you to detach the GPS unit and take it with you when you leave the vehicle, without having to unplug it. The mounting bracket also has two 3.5mm jacks--one for an external speaker and the other for the optional BC 20 wireless backup camera.

Power Requirements: The Garmin RV 760 LMT is powered by your vehicle's battery using the included 12/24-volt cigarette lighter power adapter. The built-in Lithium-Ion battery will provide up to 2 hours of use after a 4-hour charge. An optional AC adapter allows you to operate the unit on ordinary household current. The unit can be powered by your computer when it is connected via the supplied USB cable.

Navigation Features

Garmin Real Directions/Garmin Real Voice: The RV 760 LMT features Garmin Real Directions with easy-to-understand driving directions using recognizable landmarks, buildings, and traffic lights, in addition to street names. Garmin Real Voice uses advanced speech technology that sounds more like a natural human voice.

Voice Command: You can use your voice to activate and operate the RV 760 LMT. Voice Command allows you to use the device by speaking words and commands and following the voice prompts. After speaking a predetermined Wakeup Phrase, you can enter the names and/or address of popular, well-known locations. If necessary, you can disable voice prompts without muting the device, so you'll still hear the audible directions as you travel.

Smartphone Link: Smartphone Link is a phone application that allows the device to download live data using your phone's data connection, and transferring the data wirelessly via Bluetooth. The free Garmin Smartphone Link app provides access to Garmin Live Services, which includes free and subscription-based plans for viewing traffic data, weather, dynamic parking, and fuel prices. Garmin Smartphone Link is available for iPhone in the App Store and for Android in the Google Play store.

Garmin Traffic: Garmin Traffic helps you avoid traffic tie-ups that may delay your travel. It uses one of the most extensive traffic avoidance systems to check traffic conditions more than 2 billion times a month. The traffic updates appear to the side of the map, so your driving map remains onscreen at all times. The updates can give you details about the situation, including the estimated length of the delay. Free Lifetime Garmin Traffic requires no subscription or activation, and is subject to Terms & Conditions.

Note: Traffic updates are available in approximately 98 markets throughout the U.S. and Canada. Location-relevant pop-up ads and coupons will be received when traffic is enabled on the unit.

Optional Garmin HD Digital Traffic: When you add the optional Garmin GTM60 HD Digital Traffic receiver, you will receive updates as often as every 30 seconds over the HD Radio system, more than 10 times more often than other analog traffic receivers. Garmin HD Digital Traffic is available in approximately 84 metropolitan markets throughout the U.S.

Points of Interest: The built-in maps include over 10-million Points of Interest (POIs) such as hotels, restaurants, gas stations, attractions, and ATMs. are included to help you find the destination you desire. In addition, you can download additional points of interest and add them to the unit's memory (Custom POIs). The free POI Loader software can be downloaded from the Garmin website to assist you in creating Custom POIs.

Active Lane Guidance: Active Lane Guidance with voice prompts lets you know in advance which lane you should to be in to make an upcoming turn. In select metropolitan areas, the RV 760 LMT will enter split screen mode to display the photoReal junction view, a realistic depiction of the junction, complete with road signs and brightly-colored arrows to indicate the proper lane for navigation. The Bird's Eye view also gives you a top-down view of upcoming interchanges.

Map View Options: You can choose from a 3D map view or two 2D map views (Track Up or North Up) as you navigate to your destination.

Speed Limits: As you travel along a major road or street, the speed limit is displayed on the screen alongside of the vehicle's speed display. If you are exceeding the speed limit, the color of the vehicle speed indication changes to red. If the highway's posted speed limit has changed since the last map update, you can change the speed limit display on the unit.

Where Am I?: The "Where Am I?" feature gives you instant access to important information in case of an emergency. When you touch the vehicle icon on the map screen, the "Where Am I?" feature provides the coordinates (including elevation) of your current position, plus the nearest address and intersections. There are also buttons to help you locate the nearest hospitals, police stations, gas stations, and roadside assistance. You can also save the location for future reference.

Up Ahead: As you travel along your route, the Up Ahead feature constantly indicates the location of nearby businesses, including gas, food, lodging, restrooms, parking, and banks and ATMs. The locations are shown as icons, some with brand logos, and when the icons are touched on the screen, details of the services are displayed, and you are given the opportunity to navigate to that address.

Garmin Locate: To assist you in finding your parked vehicle, the Garmin Locate feature saves your location to memory when you remove the device from the windshield mounting cradle while the device is on. You can search for your vehicle's location using the Last Spot button in the menu.

Destination Search: When the Where To? button is pressed, you can use the search tools to find your destination and plan your route. The search tools allow you to search for cities, addresses, intersections, or coordinates. The new Search Bar lets you directly enter a category, brand name, address, or city name. The unit's memory stores the last 50 locations you have found so you can quickly find a previous destination.

Garmin Garage: The unit offers your choice of eight standard icons to represent your vehicle. The online Garmin Garage offers dozens more vehicle icons that you can download for free. In addition, you can purchase icon and voice bundles with Star Wars (Yoda, Darth Vader), Sesame Street (Oscar, Cookie Monster, Ernie & Bert), and The Simpsons (Homer and Marge) themes.

BaseCamp Trip Planner: You can plan your next RV trip using Garmin's BaseCamp downloadable software. The software lets you view maps, plan routes, mark waypoints and tracks from your computer and transfer them to your RV 760 LMT.

Trip Computer: The trip information page displays your current speed and direction, and provides helpful statistics about your trip. Dual trip odometers keep up with your total mileage. The page also indicates the distance and driving time to your next maneuver, as well as the distance and driving time to your destination. Your maximum speed and moving average speed are also displayed. The information can be reset in advance of your next trip.

Where I've Been/Trip Log: The Where I've Been application allows you to view your previous routes and places you have stopped on the map. In addition, the device keeps a Trip Log, which is a record of the path you have traveled. The Travel History setting must be enabled in order for the Where I've Been and Trip Log features to function.

GPS Simulator: When indoors, you can activate the built-in GPS simulator and practice using the unit. This turns off the GPS receiver so it's not searching for satellites, saving battery power.

ecoRoute: The optional ecoRoute feature calculates the fuel economy and the fuel price of navigating to a destination, and offers tools for improving fuel efficiency. The ecoRoute application can be purchased from the Garmin Online Store.

A Great GPS Unit

Written By Rick, Alamogordo, NM on Wednesday, October 22, 2014
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.

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
 
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

Haven't been able to take a long enough trip to use . But on my short trip it was very nice . With all it's features it was very good. Found the finding of camp grounds hard to key in . Haven't been able to use the preloaded R V Parks yet. All and all I think it's a good unit.

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

Written By Tempset Tom, Lake Havasu City, Az on Sunday, January 19, 2014
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

Written By BigVic, SF Bay Area on Saturday, January 18, 2014
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

do it

Written By Joe, Del Rio, TX on Friday, January 10, 2014
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

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.

Garmin RV 760LMT

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.

garmin for rv

Written By rick, lake charles, la on Saturday, September 28, 2013
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
 
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...

2 questions already asked

I would like to use the Garmin with the backup camera on a 2007 Toyota Tundra. I have the small backup camera "ad on" backup camera which was installed by dealer when I purchased the truck. It has proven to be next to useless. It this the solution I am looking for? A high quality Garmin and a high quality backup camera in one? [ Ted  Jan 17, 2014 ]

  • Roy W H, how did you access the alignment lines, mine doesn't have them. [ Ian   Jan 21, 2014 ]
  • I am not sure it will install on tailgate of bed too well. It has the remote component attached. It has to be powered to 12volt. It would work well on the back of your cab. I got shrink wrap to water proof the connections. I installed it on the back of my 40 ft 5th wheel RV. It works great. Nice color picture and clear. The Garmin interface is easy and convenient. [ CHRIS   Jan 20, 2014 ]
  • This is the best GPS unit I've ever owned. I did not rate the camera at the same level but it certainly is functional and allows me to back safely onto a street busy with pedestrians as well as vehicles. It is especially valuble to spot my neighbor across the street who backs without looking. It works just as well at night. The camera resolution is not as good as factory units I've experienced in rental cars. The visual angle displayed is good but does not emiminate the need to visually check behind to the right and left. The mounting bracket for the camera is the piece most in need of improvement as steel would be a better material. I mounted the camera sending unit in the cavity behind the tail lights and it works as well as the testing location I used on top of the tailgate. I'd do it again in a heartbeat. [ Joe   Jan 19, 2014 ]
  • Ted, I have not used the camera yet, I got it for my 5th wheel trailor and I am not going to use it until later this spring. Sorry I cannot help you at this time. [ Richard   Jan 19, 2014 ]
  • Ted, I bought the RV760LMT with the wireless B/U camera for my 2012 Sierra 2500HD. I installed the wireless transceiver behind the right rear tail light, and I mounted the camera in the bumper just to the right of the license plate. (Drilled a hole in the bumper and made a bracket to mount the camera so that just the lens protruded through the hole in the bumper. I used the bracket provided with the camera to allow me to adjust the camera in two directions). I wire the camera/transceiver power to the reverse light in the harness going to the 7-pin trailer connector to allow the camera to power on and the Garmin to switch over to display the camera when I am in reverse. It took a few adjustments to get it pointed in the right direction, but it works well, clear picture, and a wide angle. My only issue with the setup is that although I can see what is behind me, I can't see the ground in close proximity to the back of the truck, so it's a little tricky getting real close to another car when backing into a spot. I've only had it installed for a couple weeks so I'm sure I'll get used to it after a while. The Garmin itself is awesome, top of the line! I thought about getting one of those covers for my class IV hitch and mounting the camera in there originally, but I opted for the bumper instead. The factory GMC camera is in the tailgate handle, but I use a 5th wheel tailgate most of the year, so that wasn't an option either. Good luck, if you have any questions shoot me an email. - Ian [ Ian   Jan 19, 2014 ]
  • Ted, I installed this backup camera in my wife's 2005 Acura MDX in its liftgate. The camera operates efficiently but is not used as the sole means to navigate in reverse. It works well in low lighting (such as night time) and can display a significant perimeter of the rear backup zone on the large Garmin display. The rear camera is almost instantaneously displayed when the car is shifted in reverse due to it being connected to the backup lights. It took me about an hour to install the camera in the liftgate, but is extremely hidden except for a 1/4" diameter hole drilled by the license plate to feed through the camera wire to the remote receiver. The Garmin is focused towards being used in a RV, but this shouldn't be a deterant. Your favorites from your existing Garmin seamlessly load to this new one when you set and download your updates. I hope this helps. [ RICK   Jan 19, 2014 ]
  • So far I have not been able to get the RV 760 with the back up camera to perform the way I expected. I have found the 7 inch screen shows a washed out image with no way to change the contrast. I did finally discover that by tilting the screen backward toward the windshield it produces a better picture but I haven't been able to check how that will work in bright sun. I would expect the sun shining on it would not do too well. If it could be tilted forward so the screen is slanting down toward the dash instead of up toward the windshield we might have a winner. But so far not so good. The back up camera also is not producing a sharp image as I would expect from a Garmin. I had a smaller Garmin which gave good results but it got sick and died on me. I have a 7 inch Magellan which I am replacing with the RV 760 but it didn't have the speed limit and the font was too small along with the green screen it was too hard to read. The back up camera is sharp on the Magellan but doesn't have the lines for alignment and it is a wide angle view that doesn't give a close focus for me. I hoped the problem with the Garmin back up camera was something covering the lens such as a plastic protector until it is installed but that doesn't seem to be the case. Also, it seems to have a mirage like effect as the car moves - kinda like a wave action in the picture. It does have the alignment lines and you can adjust them which is good. I am using it on my Lincoln MKZ that didn't have a dash mounted system. I don't really need the RV stuff but Garmin doesn't seem to have an auto specific GPS with the back up camera compatibility. It makes it a bit "pricey" for an auto installation. Maybe someone in the Garmin system will get a chance to review this and tell me what I can do to improve the "high quality backup camera in one?" Jan 18, 2014 [ ROY W   Jan 19, 2014 ]
  • I haven't been able to get mine to work. It could be the connection to the back up light. So far not ready and too cold to try . [ G ROBERT   Jan 19, 2014 ]
Does the POI include truck stops? [ Nancy  Aug 25, 2014 ]
4 answers
  • I love this garmin. From what I understand. You can load them off the Internet. I haven't done that yet. [ David   Aug 26, 2014 ]
  • I don't see any way to specify truck stops with the RV 760LMT. It has an icon for gas stations & you might be able to pick out the obvious truck stops. I know there is a way to customize POI's - haven't tried that yet. [ John   Aug 25, 2014 ]
  • The best way to find truck stops is as follows Touch "Where To" At the top right change to the city that you want to search near In the search box at the top left enter "Truck Stops" You will get a list of the truck stops in that area [ DAVID   Aug 25, 2014 ]
  • Nancy, the RV 760LMT actually does include truck stops but they are found under RV Services. I had to get it out and look as I had forgotten. It's a great unit. [ WILLIAM   Aug 25, 2014 ]
