Garmin delivers style and substance for your RV
Hitting the road with everything you need for adventure is the essence of life with an RV. And while getting lost and exploring the roads less traveled might sound great in theory, it can also be a major hassle. Garmin's RV 770 LMT-S portable navigator takes the worry out of your travels, with RV-specific routing, an easy-to-see 6.95" edge-to-edge touchscreen display, built-in Wi-Fi®, and free traffic and map updates to keep you on track. Voice-activated guidance lets you search for destinations safely, so you can keep your eyes on the road and hands on the wheel.
A gorgeous 6.95" display leads the way
This Garmin's high-resolution 6.95" edge-to-edge touchscreen display with multi-touch control gives you easy access to preloaded maps of the U.S., Canada, and much of Mexico. It's big enough to allow flexibility about where you can mount it on your dash or console and still see the maps. RV-specific points of interest will come in handy when it's time to find Wi-Fi or on-site laundry — you can even add your own favorite destinations. And with one tap of the screen, Garmin's Up Ahead feature pulls up details for services that lie ahead on your route, including restaurants, gas stations, and more. You also get up to four free map updates per year to keep you current on road changes.
Road restrictions info enables this navigator to find the perfect route for your RV. You can build a custom profile with your RV's height, weight, length, width, and trailer details, and the navigator will deliver the best, safest route to your destination on most roadways in the contiguous 48 states and Canada. If you're in a hurry, Garmin includes standard RV sizes which allow you to change your vehicle profile with the push of button. And you can plan trips with multiple stops and save routes for future reference with ease.
The RV 770 LMT's elevation map tool gives you info on elevation along your route while viewing the map screen. You can tap the screen for more detail about potential steep grades before you hit a hill your RV might not be ready for.
RV Parks & Services directory
The RV 770 LMT 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.
Warnings about hazards up ahead
Worried about possible dangerous road conditions? The RV 770 LMT provides upcoming highway info, such as sharp curves, high winds, and weight limits. You'll also get local info like bridge heights and animal or railroad crossings. If you're in an area with one-way streets or school zones, you'll get a heads-up about paying attention to the speed limit or if you're driving the wrong direction. The navigator also provides mile marker locations, along with border notices five miles before you reach a new state line or the border to a different country.
You can pair the RV 770 LMT 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 live traffic information, 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, road conditions, and fuel prices for an additional fee.
Stay ahead of traffic troubles
Garmin Traffic updates come courtesy the Smartphone Link app, giving you a comprehensive view of congestion along your route and how long potential delays might be. It'll even suggest alternate routes to get you to your destination faster. And you won't have to pay a penny more for this service over the life of your navigator.
Points of interest via Foursquare® and TripAdvisor®
This Garmin comes with crowd-sourced points of interest from TripAdvisor and Foursquare, giving you user-verified info for millions of stops along America's roadways. You'll find the most relevant and popular hotels, restaurants, and roadside attractions within seconds, many with TripAdvisor ratings. If you've got your navigator paired with Garmin's Smartphone Link, you'll also see helpful Foursquare info such as ratings, hours, and price range displayed on the RV 770 LMT's screen.
Add an excursion with ease
If you've spent a little too long in the wilderness, you might want to take a quick detour through the nearest town to drive on actual asphalt for a change. Rather than entering a new destination, simply use Garmin's Easy Route Shaping feature to add a point to your route onscreen by touching the map, and the RV 770 LMT will tell you how much time the side trip will add to your overall journey before you embark.
Use your voice
You can activate the RV 770 LMT's guidance by using your voice — simply speak one of its recognizable commands and it'll get started. Hit the road without using your hands for safer exploring.
Hearing is believing
The RV 770 LMT's powerful built-in speaker overcomes engine noise so you can hear about upcoming maneuvers. The navigator offers Garmin Real Directions with Garmin Real Voice, a combination that helps keep you relaxed as you drive. Real Directions voice prompts speak the instructions to you like a friend would, using easy-to-see landmarks, buildings and businesses, and traffic lights, rather than streets with tiny signs that you might not see in time. With Real Voice technology, you'll hear directions spoken in a personable, human-sounding voice that you'll comprehend readily.
Stay on the right route
Garmin also incorporates several other helpful visual tools to keep you on the correct path:
- Active Lane Guidance shows you colored arrows for the correct lane for an upcoming turn.
- Bird's Eye junction view gives you a detailed look at complicated interchanges from above, to give you a better perspective.
- photoReal junction view displays realistic images of intersections, including signs and surrounding terrain, along with colored arrows for the correct lane.
You'll see all three visual features in a split-screen with your overall route so you won't lose sight of what's further down the road. This Garmin's also compatible with the optional Garmin BC 30 wireless rear-view camera, so you can add an extra layer of safety when you're backing up.
Convenient Bluetooth® compatibility
The Garmin'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.
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 770 LMT 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.
Built-in Wi-Fi for hassle-free updates
Nobody wants to hook their navigator up to their computer when it's time to get a map update or other software change. The RV 770 LMT features built-in Wi-Fi connectivity so you can perform updates from your vehicle, so long as you're connected to a Wi-Fi signal or a public hotspot that doesn't require a web browser sign-in.
