Rand McNally has introduced the RVND™ 7720, a 7-inch RV GPS device that offers Wi-Fi connectivity and real-time weather information and display. It also features video input, a brighter screen and a rugged design.
The new device – shipping now to stores, online retailers and RV dealers and distributors – joins Rand McNally’s line of RVND™ GPS devices for RVers.
RV-specific navigation is necessary to route motorhomes and towables around road restrictions, low bridges and other physical hazards. Like all Rand McNally RV GPS devices, the RVND™ 7720 also can be used as a car GPS – simply by changing a setting.
One of the features of the RVND™ 7720 is Wi-Fi connectivity, which enables the transmission and display of weather and other real-time information.* With updated weather information, RVers can anticipate delays and make plans by viewing current and predicted conditions displayed on the map and along the route.
The RVND™ 7720 has an all-new hardware platform and a new rugged design with ridged casing for added protection, a brighter screen that adjusts for low and strong light, and video input compatible with a range of backup and rear-view cameras.
The base maps and overlaying content, such as campgrounds, parks, RV service and other RV points of interest, also have been updated.
The device ships with Lifetime Maps** so owners will be able to update their devices at no additional cost.
The RVND™ 7720 GPS includes the following additional new features:
Fully updated road data, including RV-specific information such as speed limits, legal and physical restrictions, and all Rand McNally proprietary RV data
Fully updated points of interest necessary for safe and convenient routing, including travel centers and RV parking information at rest stops, exits, and other locations
Fuel logs, which are accessible from the Virtual Dashboard or via RV Tools; the feature enables drivers to record fuel purchases for a trip
Additional routing options such as “Avoid State or Province” and “Avoid Smaller Roads”
Address book icon enhancement, which enables unique icons to be created by group and shown on the map for imported locations; address book items can be sorted by name, distance from current location or date added
Text-to-speech alert details for user-imported custom points of interest, such as red light cameras, to reduce driver distraction
The new RVND™ 7720 has all of the features and functionality of previous RVND devices, including: Virtual Dashboard; junction view with lane assist; free downloads of Rand McNally’s proprietary construction information and software updates; Exits Quick View, which shows RV parking and amenities at exits; RV amenities and locations such as campgrounds, RV services, and dumps; Rand McNally exclusive pre-planned trips with photos and video; and routing for 11 types of RVs as well as for cars.
