    Make sure you register on the Dock. LTM's will be added. If you don't see then contact me via PM/E-Mail.

    What error messages are you getting?

    Thanks,

    I'm looking into buying this but, how come there's no free lifetime map updates? I have to pay for these map updates $90/yr?

    Help!

    13'11 height on I-90 under Schoessler Rd/Exit 226 is incorrect. According to the Washington DOT Bridge List 2011 bridge height is 14'06'.

    This has been corrected in the mapset. It probably will not show up on this next map update, but the one after that.

    Thanks,
    Mark

    LTM's are run by RM. They are run as Promo's. I am not sure if the Promo will be run again or if when.

    Thanks,

    Is this product worth buying? I want a gps because I need to have audible directions. Yes I've trip planned it out in the Atlas, but the Atlas doesn't show lane splits or account for confusing signs.
    This morning I needed to get to a receiver and I passed the street like 5 times because it was such a small street and really it wasnt a street, it was a driveway that was small. Will Rand McNally be helpful in this case here or should I look for another truck gps? Currently I'm using the Qualcomm gps and that sucker just isn't very good at all. I have the cash, I just want to see results from the money I put down. Yes I expect RM to know their product because they made the frickin map book! Why is it so hard for them to recreate a digital map with such parameters. Yes, I know its only a tool and its bound to fail but it should have basic things like showing streets and such. Why wasn't that implemented?
    Also does this GPS have a feature to customize your trip plan? What I mean is to
    pick between interstates/US hwys/State routes/tolls and such? Yes I'm looking at the TND 720 to buy but unsure if it will be worth dropping the money. Obviously I don't expect this to work in New York.I dislike driving through the cities of NY, but thats another story. I'm looking at buying this in the next 10 hours or so.

    no, a GPS is NOT a replacement for personal navigation.

    I still right the directions on my windshield with a dry erase marker sometimes and wipe it off as I make the turns. Especially going into shippers/receivers.
