Garmin has released a new satellite navigation system for your camper or motorhome that should take some of the stress out of your vacation. The RV 795 (also known as the Camper 795 and Camper 795 in Europe) is designed for navigating cross-country and handling the specifics of travelling with a large vehicle.

One of the toughest parts of planning a trip with a camper, RV, or trailer is choosing a route that's suitable for the weight and size of your vehicle. The RV 795 removes that hassle, using custom routing to plot routes based on your specific requirements.

While you're on the road, you'll receive warnings of upcoming hazards such as steep gradients, animal crossing, speed changes, and sharp bends.

If you like to go adventuring on the fly rather than planning every last detail, the RV 795 comes with a preloaded directory of camper parks and services from ACSI, Campercontact, Trailer's PARK and Tripadvisor, complete with ratings from other explorers so you can decide exactly where to go.

When you arrive, high-res satellite images provide overhead views of the campsite or RV park so you can see precisely where you need to go, and park with confidence.

The RV 795 is on sale now direct from Garmin for $449.99 / 389.99. There's also a version of the system with a built-in dash cam, the RV Cam 795 (or CamperCam 795), which is available for $599.99 / £499.99.
