Rand McNally’s RV GPS units, the 5” TripMaker® RVND™ 5510 and the high-definition 7” TripMaker® RVND™ 7710, have garnered praise among RV enthusiasts for their RV-specific routing and unique features designed with RV travel and safety in mind. The devices were launched earlier this year.
Equine Motorcoach™ provides custom-built horse transport vehicles, combining the comfort and amenities of a top-of-the line RV with accommodations for horse transport, and tack and supply storage. Equine Motorcoach is the only motorized ground vehicle available in the United States that combines a recreation vehicle and horse trailer into one unit.
”A GPS such as Rand McNally’s TripMaker® RVND™ helps provide routing while our customers are on their way to horse shows,” said Tom Stinnett, principal of Equine Motorcoach. “We chose it for our 2012 model because it provides the kind of information that is useful to our customers and is customized for the RVer.”
In addition to navigation and safety features, Rand McNally’s GPS TripMaker® provides RVer amenities and easy search tools: 13,000+ RV parks and campgrounds, 6,000+ travel center locations – all with amenities such as dump stations, parking, showers, and electric hook up; 24,000+ pet-friendly locations including animal hospitals; and more than 150,000 places just off the interstate, organized by exit and number.
Rand McNally has a history of working with manufacturers to design navigation products that specifically meet the needs of their customers. The company recently announced that its award-winning navigation software designed for commercial drivers would be available as an in-dash option in Navistar’s International Trucks beginning in January, 2012.
