Make that another 890 scooped up.  Note that Amazon indicated that there were only two left when I got mine.

p.s.  Mike - I owe you a sarsaparilla for this one!

i would like to replace my Garmin  2460 LMT, looking at the Garmin RV 890 

what is with this review?

        https://www.amazon.com/gp/customer-reviews/R2FF00MNJWBPSW/ref=cm_cr_dp_d_rvw_ttl?ie=UTF8&ASIN=B089DMTQFT

        "I have spent several hours trying to upload maps to this device from Good Sam and fro RV trip apps using the Garmin drive app. IT DOES NOT WORK - do not spend the money for this device>"

Reading the RV890 manual, i am not seeing that you can upload non *.GPX maps (www.mapstogo.com),  Am i missing something?

later edit - the reviewer was experiencing a Hardware error, "NUT LOOSE ON THE KEYBOARD..."  Maps he was trying to upload were not Compatible with Garmin Software.   

FYI - the manual can be located at

My current Garmin is a nuvi 2797LM 7 inch screen.  I've never had a bit of trouble with it but the 890 is more RV related.  I figure that I'll get the 890, try it out for a day or two and if it is not better then I'll simply return it.  If it is better then I'll offer up the nuvi for sale here in the classifieds.

p.s.  thanks for the link to the manual!

I always buy my GPS, etc. from these guys,   https://g.factoryoutletstore.com/cat/18937/Garmin-7-Inch-GPS.html  I purchased the 61LMT-S 7" model for a lot less money as you can see in the ad. This GPS does just about everything and weather and traffic can be added and still spend less then $200. I have an iPhone that will do the extras if needed for free. I guess you buy what you think you will need, but we all know most of what we pay for is never used.
