Rand McNally Introduces All-New RV GPS

Just in time for Labor Day getaways, Rand McNally has introduced its third-generation RV GPS device.

Redesigned inside and out, the RVND 7730 LM provides all-new hardware, a faster processor, two new graphical user interface options, with improved map appearance. Bringing together Rand McNally’s award-winning navigation and new features such as Toll Cost estimates and Advanced Lane Guidance, the RVND device delivers leading-edge technology and tools specifically designed for RVers.

“Rand McNally’s RVND was the first navigation device designed specifically for RVers. With this next generation device, we’ve incorporated an all-new look but more importantly, new features to better help RVers get the most out of their on-the-road adventures,” said Stephen Fletcher, CEO of Rand McNally.

The device features a new, sleeker hardware design with a 7-inch screen—rugged and large for any RV dashboard. Inside, the RVND has faster processing speed, allowing for quicker route calculation, point of interest searches, route comparisons, and screen-to-screen transitions.

New navigation options give RVers more assistance and the ability to further customize routes:

Estimated toll road costs are now included for more informed trip planning.

More Advanced Lane Guidance instruction, combined with an increased number of enhanced Junction Views, goes beyond just turns and shows the best lanes in which to drive when approaching a turn or heading toward a complicated intersection.

And drivers may avoid areas permanently such as heavily congested city areas—or temporarily—to accommodate closures of bridges or other roads.

The onboard mapping has been upgraded to include improved text and road shields, and new coloration for certain reference points such as shopping centers and parks. There are two new color schemes for the maps, giving RVers even more personalization options.

To further customize the devices, RVers can choose between two new interface options—”Ice” (with a white background) and “Carbon” (with a steel grey background). Users also may choose the familiar “Classic” design interface, from prior generations of the device. The new, proprietary, color-saturated icons in the design were created by Rand McNally making features easy to recognize with just a glance.

The 7730 LM device includes extensive updates to features such as:

The addition of the latest Rand McNally Best of the Road towns with roadside attractions, dining, and historical sites.

A complete update of campgrounds—with 1,521 additions—including Good Sam campgrounds, public and commercial campgrounds, and Good Sam-rated campgrounds.

An updated cross-reference to the new 2015 Rand McNally Road Atlas, with emergency and roadside assistance information by state.

A comprehensive update of RV parking including rest stops and welcome centers, travel centers with RV-friendly amenities, and stores such as Walmart and Sam’s Club locations.

In addition, Rand McNally has incorporated new features and thousands of updates derived from “Tell Rand”, Rand McNally’s proprietary feedback loop for RVND users. For example, multi-stop trip planning now provides the detail of upcoming legs of the journey color-coded for easy differentiation, allowing for easy analysis of trip segments. And, with a one-click selection, drivers may hide buttons on the display to provide a larger view of the map.

The RVND 7730 LM includes Lifetime Map updates and the ability to switch over to car routing. The device is Wi-Fi connected, allowing for up-to-the moment information along a route such as current fuel prices, weather, and traffic.

The new RVND 7730 LM device is available at RV dealers and other retail locations nationwide, and in online stores such as amazon.com, bestbuy.com, and walmart.com.

Retail Price: $349.99

Rand McNally Releases Significant Enhancement to RV GPS App

Rand McNally released a significant update to its highly rated RV GPS app, the first such iOS application for iPad designed for navigating recreational vehicles.

rvgps_ipad_splashThe RV GPS app routing considers road, bridge, and tunnel restrictions for propane -on –board, as well as RV-prohibited roads.

In the release, available to all current users, Rand McNally has included significant new features that allow drivers to choose between a primary and alternate route, manage and track fuel costs, and easily search for local information, according to a company news release.

Following is a rundown of the new features:

Real-time fuel prices and logs: With market-leading fuel price data, this feature provides diesel and gas prices at stops along a route or near any location. Fuel prices and fuel stop icons can be shown on the map and in list format, viewable by brand, price, or distance to location. Additionally, the feature includes fuel logs that automatically calculate fuel economy for a route, and can be viewed by month and by quarter.

Integrated local search: This feature expands the ability to find points of interest on the device, using a keyword search, such as ‘burger’ or a category or business name. Once a location is found the app shows a description, address, and phone number. With one tap, an RV-specific route to that location is generated.

Compare Routes: It’s great to have options. Compare Routes provides a primary route and a reasonable alternate, allowing the driver to choose. Both routes are presented on a map for quick review.

In addition to new features, the release includes a full road map update for the U.S. and Canada.

rvgps_app_4_lgThe update includes:

52,000 changes that impact RV routing, including enhancements to parkways, weight restriction and vertical clearance updates.

Significantly enhanced speed limit information.

Updates and additions to numerous points of interest important to RVers such as commercial campgrounds and ratings; overnight parking information; dealer and repair locations; rest areas with RV-friendly parking; dump stations and RV-friendly travel centers.

17,000 new roadside attractions and Rand McNally’s Best of the Road finalist towns.

An updated Road Atlas e-book, as part of the app.

The RV GPS App is rated more than four stars on the iTunes store, and is compatible with iOS 4.0 and higher.

Turn-by-turn navigation is enabled for iPad cellular models, but requires a GPS accessory for Wi-Fi only models.

Rand McNally introduces its first handheld/bike mounted outdoor GPS device for hiking, biking, geocaching, and more.

Rand McNally’s Foris 850
Rand McNally’s Foris 850

The Rand McNally’s Foris 850 comes loaded with millions of miles of high-quality street and trail maps, a sturdy bike mount, and an easy-to-use interface with on-device help.

Announced at the Outdoor Retailer show, Winter Market, the Foris 850 has been in beta testing and reviews by outdoor enthusiasts since January, the company noted in a press release. Received favorably, the Foris 850 is the result of collaboration between Rand McNally and Falk Outdoor Navigation, a business unit of United Navigation Limited.

“The Foris is designed to provide a ‘trail ready’ experience out of the box with everything included to get outside and go,” explained Dave Marsh, vice president of research and development for Rand McNally.

“Consumers have come to expect turn-by-turn voice guidance on GPS and in-car units, and we’ve brought that feature uniquely to the outdoor market with guidance on trails as well as roads.”

“Other industry firsts include Loop Me, a feature that creates a looped trail with the same starting and ending point, based on the user’s preferred time or distance for the hike or ride, and TrackNav, which creates navigable routes from ‘breadcrumb’ trails,” Marsh explained.

Other key features of the Foris device include:

  • Multiple U.S. map databases on device, including Rails-to-Trails Conservancy, U.S National Park Service trails, National Forestry hiking trails and multi-purpose trails, U.S. National Wildlife Refuge trails, and the national hydrographic dataset, among others (the trail maps are pre-loaded as vector trails, rather than raster images, allowing for navigation and routing vs. just viewing)
  • Millions of points of interest relevant to the outdoor market, such as trailheads, high points, bike shops, recreation areas, and campgrounds
  • Spoken and visual turn-by-turn directions, even on trails
  • Route compare feature that compares three alternative routes, along with their elevation profiles
  • Paperless geocaching through direct integration with geocaching.com; all descriptions, hints, logs, difficulty and terrain level on device
  • Storage capacity for a category-leading 7,000 waypoints
  • Barometric altimeter that shows accurate elevation levels on the map, or along current trail as well as how far to the top of a mountain or other location
  • Trailhead companion software for desktop computers allows geocaches, hikes, and rides to be stored, viewed, and transferred to and from the Foris
  • Glove friendly 3-inch touch screen (240 x 400 pixels) is sensitive enough to be used while wearing biking gloves
  • The box includes bike mount, batteries, an anti-glare screen protector, 8 GB internal memory

The Foris 850 has a suggested retail price of $399.99 and is anticipated to be the first in a line of outdoor market products from Rand McNally.

The Foris 850 will be available exclusively at amazon.com beginning June 7 and at other retailers as of June 21.

“We have changed up the roster with new and exciting products and our dealer partners were extremely enthusiastic in their response to the new lineup. We were No. 1 in retail sales in the U.S. for 2012 and with the new products we have unveiled this week, we see that momentum continuing.”

“The Travato is a real game changer,” said Will Jarnot, general manager, Pleasureland RV, headquartered in St. Cloud, Minnesota.

“Winnebago has a hit a home run with an affordable, economical, and versatile motorhome that hits a price point that will appeal to a large customer base, even as a second vehicle.”
“We’re excited about the new and unique floor plan the Forza offers,” said Nate McClain, owner of McClain’s RV of Dallas, Texas.

“We’ve had a tremendous amount of interest in that price point for Class A diesel, so we’re ecstatic that Winnebago Industries has given us the Winnebago Forza.”

Winnebago Industries’ products are also premiering the all-new X1 family of Infotainment Centers from Xite Solutions North America with the award-winning RV GPS from Rand McNally, said Degnan.

The Rand McNally RV GPS includes the all-new 6-inch X1S Radio or the industry-first 10.4-inch X1DM In-Dash Touch-Screen Monitor.

Rand McNally Introduces RV Navigation App for iPad

Nearly two years after introducing the first GPS designed specifically for RVers, Rand McNally launched the first RV GPS app for the iPad.

-00rvgps_app_app_icon_smThe RV GPS was shown for the first time at the Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas, Nevada.

Rand McNally’s RV GPS for iPad is the first iOS application offered that is specifically designed for RV navigation. The new application, available on the App Store(sm), provides RV class-specific routing (and with a quick toggle, over to car routing) based on Rand McNally’s proprietary road data and navigation, plus thousands of RV parks and campgrounds, RV-friendly locations, RVer tools, and pre-planned trips.

The app also includes dynamic weather, a map overlay feature that helps drivers anticipate conditions such as high wind and precipitation along the route.

Also included is a bonus feature of the app: An e-book version of America’s #1 Road Atlas.

-000rvgps_app_2_lg“About 20% of RVers have an iPad, and many of them take it on the road,” said Dave Muscatel, CEO of Rand McNally.

“Our new app lets those travelers access the same premier RV routing, navigation, and content available on our RVND GPS devices, and load it on their tablet.”

The Rand McNally RV GPS is an on-board app that provides safe and easy routing customized for an RV or car. Unlike off-board navigation, the maps load on an iPad, providing access everywhere — even in remote areas where a cellular or Wi-Fi connection is not available. For real time navigation as the vehicle progresses, a GPS signal is required.

The RV GPS app includes:

  • Safe and easy routing for 11 types of RV in the U.S. and Canada; also includes car mode for cars towed to the destination and used for excursions, or for everyday use
  • Routing based on legal and physical restrictions, such as height, width, weight limits, and propane restrictions, and favors right- or left-hand turns depending on RV class
  • Rand McNally proprietary RV-specific road attributes and Rand McNally exclusive highway construction project information
  • Warnings for speed limit changes, sharp curves, dirt roads, and other potential hazards
  • General and RV-specific points of interest including thousands of RV parks and campgrounds listed by category, RV parking, rest stops, exits, and other locations
  • Rand McNally Editor’s Picks, including Best of the Roadadventures, trips, and getaways
  • Real-time weather information including current and forecasted information for current location, destination, and anywhere along the route

Choose from 10 different map overlays to display important information for RVers, such as wind speed, current and forecasted precipitation, and weather-based traffic impact.

-00rvgps_app_4_lgRV Tools such as RV checklists prepare the user for trip departure, campsite setup, and more. Trails record a “bread crumb” path from the campsite, or a favorite shortcut and Quick Planner calculates time, distance, and cost for trips between major cities.

Fuel logs track fuel purchases, including where purchased, gallons, and total cost; and tools are available to record vehicle maintenance.

Rand McNally also sells an in-vehicle mount for an iPad and an external GPS accessory online at the Rand McNally store.

Rand McNally Introduces new RV GPS

Skokie, Illinois-based Rand McNally introduced the RVND 7720, a new seven-inch RV GPS device with Wi-Fi connectivity allowing for real-time weather information and display, and new hardware with rugged casing, video input, and a brighter screen.

Rand McNally RVND 7720 GPS device with Wi-Fi connectivity

The new device—now available in stores, online retailers, and RV dealers and distributors—joins Rand McNally’s line of RVND GPS devices for RVers.

Rand McNally pioneered RV-specific navigation by launching the first GPS device designed specifically for RVers and campers, according to a Rand McNally news release.

RV-specific navigation is necessary to route large vehicles and towables around road restrictions, low bridges, and other physical hazards. However, like all Rand McNally RV GPS devices, the RVND 7720 can be used as a car GPS as well—merely by changing a simple setting.

One of the new features of the RVND 7720 is Wi-Fi connectivity, which enables the transmission and display of weather as well as other real-time information. With updated weather information, RVers will be able to anticipate delays and make plans by viewing current and predicted conditions displayed on the map and along the route.

Besides weather, other RV-specific connected services will be coming soon and will be available for this device.

The RVND 7720 has an all-new hardware platform, featuring 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 back-up and rear-view cameras.

Rand McNally RVND 7720 GPS device with Wi-Fi connectivity

The base maps and overlaying content, such as campgrounds, parks, RV service, and other RV points of interest, also have been updated for the RVND 7720.

The new device ships with Lifetime Maps (see link below) 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
Rand McNally RVND 7720 GPS device with Wi-Fi connectivity

The new RVND 7720 has all of the features and functionality drivers have come to expect from Rand McNally, 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 Tools, RV amenities and locations such as campgrounds, RV services, and dumps; Woodall’s Campground information with searchable amenities; Rand McNally exclusive pre-planned trips with photos and video; and routing for 11 types of RVs as well as for cars.
