Previously I promised Texasrvers I'd write a review on the Rand McNally's RVND 5510. On June 20 I purchased the GPS on the way out of town of our maiden trip in our 2011 Pleasureway plateau TS. We knew exactly where we were going so we didn't bother to set up the unit, thinking we'd use it on the way home and familiarize ourselves with the unit then.
The Plateau was WONDERFUL, the site was spectacular, but the trip itself was otherwise marred. Being newbies (oh man, this is embarrassing to admit) we didn't realize that the 110 current could not be obtained from the vehicle unless you had a shore source. So two days into the trip we decided that sleeping without our CPAPs would not be a good thing that third night, and we were going to head home early.
That's when we noticed we were one cat light in the vehicle. 9 hours later we found her. Since we were then going to get home at midnight, we didn't take time to set up the GPS.
Making matters worse, when we did get home we found a converter I had forgotten I had put in the glove box a week earlier. Ever since getting home, we've been clearing out the house for sale (and we're still not done.) So enough of the excuses....
Today I sat down and worked with the 5510 to see what I could learn. At first I started creating a word document, trying to describe its functionality (not easy without pictures), but just now, I came across a copy of the instructions on-line.
Believe me, this puppy has a lot of functionality. 147 pages worth. Including the 27, eight by ten color glossy pictures with the circle and arrows and descriptions on the back – OK, so they aren't 8X10, nor are the descriptions written on the back. Sorry, I had to throw in the Arlo Guthery thing.
(Sheese, the boy talks so much he's likely tuh get a sunburn tongue.)
So here's the document: http://www.switz111.bizland.com/gps/RVND5510.pdf
I especially got a kick out of the place where they warned you “Do not attach the mount to the air bag deployment zone” - I suppose if you want a backwards indelible monogram of 'Rand McNally' that are would be fine.
If you folks will consider this a down payment on my promise, I'll give you my opinions on the tool later.
BTW, we ordered some batteries for our CPAPs, and they were stolen off our porch after delivery. Who's makin, Ah say, who's making all the attacks on my person?
