Our take on the Rand McNally RVND 7720 LM by Crutchfield's Dominic DeVito
Make the most of the open road
You've got the RV, now don't waste time wondering what's around the bend. Rand McNally's RVND 7720 LM portable GPS navigator gives you a wealth of features to make your RV travels more enjoyable. You can take advantage of reliable guidance that's suited for your vehicle, plus helpful map updates and built-in Wi-Fi® compatibility to get updated weather reports when you're on the go.
The RVND 7720 LM features a bright 7" touch display in a rugged chassis. The navigator's easy-to-grip form makes it convenient to move in and out of your vehicle. And it's got an extra-loud speaker so you can hear the spoken turn-by-turn directions easily over road noise. A built-in rear-view camera input lets you make things more safe when it's time to back your RV out of a tight spot. And you can add an external speaker to the navigator through its included headphone jack.
You'll get detailed maps of the United States and Canada, plus millions of searchable points of interest so you can find nearby RV parking, services, and accommodations. You can even add your favorite out-of-the-way locations for future journeys. Choose from eleven different RV body types, then enter your vehicle's height, weight, and number of propane tanks, and the navigator will find the best possible routes.
Rand McNally's proprietary bridge height and weight restrictions information ensures the navigator finds the safest way to your destination, keeping you from having to backtrack. RV checklists help you make sure you remember the small things before the next leg of your journey. The navigator will also show you RV-friendly amenities at the next exit, so you can find the best spots for parking and other road necessities.
You'll also get enhanced guidance features that are great for any type of vehicle, like junction view with lane assist to get you through complicated interchanges. Text-to-speech directions announce actual street names at turns. Speed limit indicators show you the posted speed limit where you're traveling, and alert you when you're rolling too fast. Predictive traffic offers estimates of when congestion might develop along your route based on historic traffic patterns.
Recommended stopping points
The RVND 7720 LM features campground information from the experts at Woodall's®, including searchable amenities that let you know what to expect when you pull in. You'll also get Rand McNally's Editor's Picks for all types of destinations and diversions, making it easy to plan trips in advance.
Wi-Fi for weather updates
The RVND 7720 LM's built-in Wi-Fi compatibility comes in handy when you're wondering about the weather. Connect to a Wi-Fi hotspot, and the navigator can import weather conditions and forecasts for your current location, your destination, and anywhere along your route (data charges may apply, depending on your service provider). You can choose from ten different live map overlays to see important details for RV drivers, including wind speed and precipitation, all at no additional cost to you.
Free lifetime map updates
You can update your maps once a year for as long as you own your RVND 7720 LM. No more worries about new construction in your area or your favorite pit stop moving to a different location — with Rand McNally, you're sure of accurate guidance for the long run.
This is an amazing GPS. It is so consumer friendly. Every aspect is so easy to understand and read. We were stress free when using this GPS. It allows you to program it for your specific motor home. That makes it a built-in safety feature in my mind. Thanks for a GREAT PRODUCT!!!!!!!!!!

I don't know if it is the newest; however, I do know that this unit is very slow to boot up, and it is not very user friendly friendly. Hope this helps. [ Steven Dec 15, 2013 ]
