Is RM the only device that shows current location by name and mile marker?

    One of my favorite features of my old RM was that with a glance I could see the name of the municipality I was currently passing through, as well as the mile marker, when applicable. That's very helpful when calling for roadside assistance or reporting an emergency.

    I haven't seen this information on any of the screenshots I've seen from Garmin models. Do they have such a thing?

    The lower right hand display can be set to display various thing. ETA, time, temp, elevation, time remaining or distance remaining etc. Also can be set to mile marker but I can't imagine giving up the ETA for mm. But YMMV

    I guess you could toggle it to MM when needed. Thanks!

    I’ve started using copilot on an iPad. It gives you location and MM as you drive past them. It doesn’t stay in the screen, but you can scroll the map slightly to find the next one.

    Google maps also shows if you zoom in.

    The highway is on the bottom center of the Garmin OTR DEZL 1000. You have seven windows you can pick what you want displayed including current mile marker.
