Top Customer Reviews
Touch screen is large and excellent resolution. The type font used is huge so it is easy to see and read the street names at a quick glance. It has voice activation but my efforts to use it were not successful.
The design is very ingenious with a very small receiver that clips onto the rear of the GPS and then onto a standard Garmin bracket. The only trick is that powering the GPS or doing updates requires using the USB port on the Garmin but to operate the Garmin and camera video receiver you need to power it instead and it takes a different USB connector than the Garmin.
The camera is tiny but provides a very good picture and it is in color which is helpful in knowing what is behind you in terms of grass, dirt, pavement, or ice. It is good in not being blinded by bright light which has been a problem with the two factory backup cameras on my truck and car.
There is a cable that connects the camera to the small transmitter module and then a power cable from the module that powers both the module and the camera. One cannot shorten the camera to transmitter module cable but can shorten the power cord from the transmitter. I found a single gang plastic box that was deep enough to hold the transmitter and the cabling coiled up inside. Then I ran the power cord to a running light for 12v power and attached the junction box to the RV using VHB tape.
With a car or truck I would have mounted the camera on the license plate and powered it off the light and tucked the transmitter and its cables behind the bodywork. The transmitter is not waterproof and should not be submerged but it is weatherproof if mounted out of the way.
The only time one needs to make a hole is to get the power cable to a 12v source. This is a requirement with nearly every backup camera. Even the ones that run off a battery need to be frequently recharged and are not a viable solution for regular use of the camera.
I paid $470 for the GPS and the backup camera with its transmitter. This is a good value as a separate camera and transmitter and receiver will cost at least $90 and require more custom wiring to install at both ends, camera and monitor. 7" monitors are available for a little over $100 and complete sets with monitor, receiver, transmitter, and video camera can be purchased for a little over $200.
I did not want to have both a monitor and a GPS on the dash and this all in one solution works perfectly. I have the GPS on one of the portable dash mounts so it can go from one vehicle to another and be removed when leaving the vehicle so it is not a temptation to thieves. A short USB cable comes with the kit to power it off a car USB port or using one of the USB adapters that fit inside a cigarette lighter socket.
Range is a problem with most of the wireless backup camera systems but this one is excellent and does not need a booster unless the distance between the camera's transmitter and the GPS/receiver is greater than 45 feet. There is the option to mount the transmitter further away from the camera but Garmin recommends not doing this though they sell extension cables. This is probably due to the fact that the cables used are not shielded in any way and so the cable becomes an antenna and will pick up interference from RF sources. The longer the cable used the greater the antenna effect will be.
I wish that Garmin provided a transmitter to camera cable that was 12 inches long or shorter and then one could add the extension cable if needed but if not then have less cable to house. The excess wire cabling took up two-thirds of the space in the plastic junction box need to hold it along with the transmitter.
I’ve been using GPS systems since 2000 and have been pulling a 30 foot travel trailer since 2010. Each year we log about 20,000 miles traveling through the U.S. east of the Mississippi. We live in Florida and travel as far east as Philadelphia before going to extreme northeastern Minnesota and then south to the Hot Springs, Arkansas area before heading home. This often turns out to be about a 6,500 mile tour through a variety of weather and road conditions and geographical challenges. I don’t pretend to be an expert, but we do have some experience. This review is meant for anyone who enjoys the RV life and chalks up a few miles doing so. those who are using or intend to travel via RV of any sort.
I should point out that the only other RV GPS I’ve used is the Rand McNally and the Garmin is clearly the superior product.
First the big screen 7 inch screen is a huge benefit. It’s amazing how much easier it is to navigate when you can see a bigger picture of your surroundings. Additionally the touch screen on the Garmin is just right. The cursor goes where you tell it to go and does so instantaneously. The Rand McNally was never lighting fast, but as it got older it seemed to grow slower by the day. Any RVer knows that getting directions fast is very important. Big rigs like ours don’t have the luxury of time and a short turning radius so this feature is invaluable.
Speaking of speed. The Garmin wastes no time in getting to “Start.” When you turn it on it asks a couple of quick questions and is ready to go. The Rand McNally was turtle slow…even slower than that. The Garmin is ready to go, now! The print is big, the maps are clear, verbal directions are slowly spoken and precise. It will tell you which lane you need to be in to get into the next lane you need to be in and give you plenty of time to do it.
I’m not going to go through all of the features here, because I haven’t even tried them all yet, but I do have a piece of advice. Before you get on the road with it, take it out of the box, read the directions carefully and then use it while sitting in your living room easy chair. I suggest you allow a few hours of playtime for it. When on the road you won’t have time to play with it so learn the system before you leave.
Rear Camera. Wow! My son-in-law and grandson installed mine on my Nissan NV 3500 cargo van, we have not used it on the trailer. Because we drive the van a great deal without the trailer and because the trailer has no side or rear windows the camera is a necessity (you can get one factory installed from Nissan if you like but this is much less expensive). We installed it half way up the swinging rear doors and get a phenomenal view. In the past we had to begin to back up and then wait to either hear a car horn or a “crunch.” The camera offers a huge, colorful, well lighted view of what’s behind you. The picture is not of TV quality but it is good enough to let you know what’s back there.
One more item. Whenever I buy anything I do a lot of research on it. I did a lot of research on GPS systems and they all share the same problem. How do you mount them so they can be easily seen by the driver, yet not block any of your view through the windshield. Most of them seem to want you to use the suction cup to the windshield method. I don’t like that because it is too difficult to get to in case you need to program it while moving (when we travel my wife drives so I do all the programming). When it is attached to the windshield you likely will remove the suction cup as well as the GPS and that creates a new time consuming problem. I have opted for using a bean bag on the dash approach…but that’s ‘not perfect either because the unit may slide when you turn corners. The GPS manufacturers have to find a solution for this problem.
I will write more after I’ve had more experience…but this easily gets a four star rating now.
Update October 9, 2016.
Back up camera is great with a very wide view although the picture is sometimes a little blurry but not bad enough to affect anything.
As to the GPS, My earlier beliefs are confirmed. The Garmin 760 is head and shoulders over the Rand McNally for several reasons, primary among them is speed. That Rand McNally was incredibly slow, the Garmin is up and running within a couple of seconds gives much better directions by pointing out landmarks, “Turn left at the brewery,” and gives you great directions and ample time to change lanes. It seems to have better road maps as well and gives real time info on highway situations like warning of traffic slowdowns ahead, how long the delay will be and recommended detours. Finally the screen is bigger and doesn’t seem to be affected by sunlight glare as much as the Rand McNally.
About the only thing the McNally does better is locate wal-marts, but the information on whether overnight parking is allowed is not always accurate. It always pays to call ahead and ask.
Someday there will be a GPS that will also provide weather forecasts and real time weather information while driving and that will be when they have reached near perfection.
Pros: I prefer Garmin GPS software over my Tom-Tom and Magellan GPS systems. I like the idea of incorporating a backup camera function into the unit. The wireless signal is strong between the GPS and camera setup.
Cons: All of my negatives have to do with the backup camera setup:
The backup camera system displays a smeary picture. In this day and age of cheap mega-pixel cameras, it is unbelievable that Garmin charges so much for this kit and uses a poor quality camera. Three years ago, I purchased a $40 backup camera system for my pickup and it displays a much better image (check my previous review of that item).
The cable between the camera and the wireless sender is too short. They should have had at least a couple of feet more, if not 5 feet. (They want you to buy an extra 15 foot extension!)
The power supply cable for the wireless sender unit is long enough and has a tough housing but the wires used are too small and delicate. At the junction with the wireless sender, these small wires hang freely in order to incorporate an old fashioned glass fuse and fuse holder. It looks amateurish and is the weak spot in this setup. Garmin admits in their manual that this part is not waterproof.
The receiver for the wireless backup camera is not securely attached to the back of the GPS unit. It is easily released. You need to be careful with it or you lose your camera signal.
