I will address my only con right up front. It is too quiet. Needs to be on full blast at all times, and you still need to listen carefully for the prompts if you have the RV audio on. I've lowered the volume on my car radio. The is an audio port, and I can put it directly into the radio for huge sound, but my radio is not smart enough to switch back and forth. Another option is a headphone, in just one ear. So far, I can make do.
What I love - Huge POI database, much improved over the factory installed. Accepts routing plans from Good Sam Travel Planner, and fairly easy to re-route on route as needed, Has a diesel fuel POI list in addition to gas stations. Loads the BringFido.com database, which helps me find dog friendly POIs en route, especially dog parks - what a benefit! In LA, I switched to a rental car, and sync'ed the GPS to my Wifi Hot Spot for traffic updates and alternative routing - lets you compare two routes, and choose one. Switched from RV to Car mode for the rental, so I would not get any RV warnings (weight and clearance, mostly).
Notes to be aware with any GPS - it will do what you tell it to. I missed a turn in Cortez Co, and went a half hour out of my way before the GPS routed me back. I had it set to no U Turn, because my last GPS used to drive me crazy with "Turn Back" warnings when I chose a different turn. Much less annoying on this unit, so I turned U turn back on. And it is hard to review the route for any changes you may have made on a mutli-trip route, so started navigating to interim stops I forgot to delete. I got in the habit of checking the route to my next stop before taking off, so I could delete it before I started driving. The shorter the multi-stop route, the easier to manage, so I break the Good Sam routes to one day at a time before uploading to the GPS for this reason. And when you are following a convoluted route like 66, paper maps are still a necessity to validate the segments. Being able to navigate to a specific intersection made the GPS invaluable to follow the route changes though LA.
I mount this on top left hand corner or the Sprinter windshield, which is out of my field of vision, close enough to touch with either hand, and as close as I can get to my ears. In the rental car I was able to mount on the front corner of the side window and get a good viewing angle, but this doesn't work well on my Subaru Outback. I put it in the tray below the radio. As long as the GPS is firmly mounted, I don't have any problem with the touch screen.
This is a huge improvement over my factory installed Magnadyne GPS. I paid $249, and I think it is was a good investment.
I mount it in the top left hand corner of my Sprinter windshield; out
the screen ! The function of the unit is great, just cant see the screen. I have borrowed a 7730 that is a year old. The software functions great, but again i cant read the screen during the day. THE RVNDs ARE GREAT NIGHT TIME GPSs ! I tested a garmin RV gps. The screen is great, but it does not have the functionally of the 7730. I finally wrote a letter to the CEO of Rand McNally with my thoughts. A suprise, I got a phone call from him, I was not at home so he left a VM stating he wanted to talk and a phone number for me to call. Well this worked about as well as their tech support. No one answered the number left. I wrote another letter to him. Its been several weeks and no response. IMHO, the unit functions great, except a very poor choice of hardware for a screen. FYI, my background. i have work on computer systems and I/O since 1965. I was hardware tech support for large and small IBM systems for almost 40 years. I have held a ham radio license since 1694 while in high school. Have own'd a camper of some type since 1972.
I hope Rand McNally designs a new 7740 model with a great screen that can be read during the day, even when I am wearing sunglass's.
My wife and I do not need a tablet with gps built in. We already have tablets.
the ceo of rand mcnally reached out to me today. listened to my opinions. he understands that improvements need to be made. he ask that i wait til this summer, when the new models are released. i will test the new model and update him....jim
