Rand McNally Unveils GPS for RVers

By: On: Tuesday May 10 2011

Rand McNally has recently released what it’s calling the first navigation device designed specifically for RVers – the TripMaker RVND 5510.

“We’ve listened carefully to members of the RVing community, who told us overwhelmingly that they would be interested in purchasing a GPS if it provided RV-specific routing, stops and amenities that RVers need while on the road, and things to see and do along the way,” says Dave Muscatel, CEO of Rand McNally. “Our new TripMaker® RVND™ line will solidly deliver on these expectations.”

According to Rand McNally, the TripMaker RVND 5510 layers on all the information needed to have an enjoyable and safe trip in an RV. The routing includes legal (including propane and other RV-only), height and weight restrictions, right or left-turn preference based on eleven different RV types, and a quick reference to the Rand McNally Road Atlas. Turn-by-turn spoken and text directions is intended to keep the driver focused on the road ahead.

The TripMaker RVND features more than 14 million points of interest – including festivals, and National, State, and Regional Parks. Other key information include:

- RV Campgrounds, RV Dealers and Service, Parking and Rest Areas, Travel Centers with detailed amenities such as dump stations, propane availability and more.
- Detailed exit information and available amenities on upcoming interstate exits.
- RVer Tools such as Checklists for set up and take down, Maintenance Logs, Trails back to your campsite, and Quick Mileage Calculators.
- Pet friendly locations including parks, animal hospitals, and beaches.
- Things to see and do along the way

In addition to routing and tools critical to RVers, the TripMaker RVND features Rand McNally Editor’s Pick Content – proprietary data provided by Rand McNally’s editorial staff with video and photos. The content includes:

- Best of the Road – three-to-four day adventures including unique stops, photos of the locations, maps and more to plan a memorable adventure.
- Regional Trips, Scenic Tours, Weekend Getaways, and City Trips.
- 12,000 researched locations that will help make any trip exciting and unique.

The TripMaker RVND 5510, available in North America in June, is fully operational in English, French, and Spanish. Visit www.randmcnally.com/rvgps for more information.
