dimensions and the included America’s RV Parks & Services Directory.”

RV-Friendly Features

RV 760LMT is preloaded with detailed maps for the U.S. and Canada that
also include RV-related restrictions, such as bridge heights, and
related information for most major roads and highways. Users just enter
their vehicle profile information (customizable by height, weight,
length and width) to find routes suitable for their RV.

America’s RV Parks & Services Directory provides comprehensive
information on RV parks and campgrounds. This directory contains nearly
20,000 sites in the United States and Canada, including national and
state parks as well as privately owned campgrounds. America’s RV Parks &
Services Directory lets users search by 20 amenities – such as pet
friendly, onsite laundry, internet access, and electric hookups. It also
includes more than 14,000 service locations, including towing, tire
shops, truck stops and repairs.

To make it easier to find places while on the road, Up Ahead provides a
constant stream of nearby places – including restaurants, rest areas,
hospitals and fuel stations – that appears alongside the driving map and
updates as the driver moves along.

Premium Garmin Navigation

RV 760LMT redefines “spoken turn-by-turn directions” with Garmin Real
Directions, easy-to-understand driving directions that guide like a
friend, using recognizable landmarks, buildings and traffic lights. No
more stress from trying to read street names. Garmin Real Voice™ is
refined speech technology that sounds more like a natural, friendly
voice. Garmin Real Directions and Garmin Real Voice are features that
are only available in Garmin GPS navigators. RV 760LMT also offers the
convenience of voice-activated navigation. Users simply speak and the
device responds to the commands.

The Active Lane Guidance feature uses a combination of voice prompts and
visual cues to prepare users to drive through an exit or interchange
with confidence. Active Lane Guidance displays an animated graphic next
to the map view that uses brightly colored arrows to indicate the proper
lane needed to make a turn. photoReal junction view realistically
displays junctions and interchanges, including the surrounding landscape
and road signs along the route. RV 760LMT also displays speed limit,
current speed and accurate time of arrival.

With the included combination power cable/traffic receiver, the RV
760LMT offers free traffic information, helping to avoid traffic jams.

ahead of time. Users can create routes along specific roads and search
