There's an RV-specific GPS that now comes with a membership to RV Trip Wizard. Haven't had a chance to actually use it but, once you enter your trailer's specifics, it's supposed to chart a route for you based upon those measurements. I'm not holding my breath but we shall see. Anything has to be better than the app I was using on my phone which has led us in the wrong direction several times, almost down a dead-end street in Paso Robles, almost down a one-lane road near Mt. Lassen and down a dead-end alley in San Francisco (thankfully, that time was sans trailer ... ).

I would think your choices for in dash model would be limited to your vehicle manufacturer. I have a stand alone Rand McNally GPS which links via computer to Rand McNally trip maker software for rv's. Sometimes I use both, but normally plan out before hand and just use the vehicle GPS where it agrees to my printed itinerary.
Due to the pandemic, my life now exists of only 3 days, yesterday, today, and tomorrow. Everything else has been forgotten!

Since I, and possibly others, plan on using a phone to navigate and don't want to replicate your experience, please share what app that is.
