Context, man. Context!

The RV goes without saying in an RV Forum.

Like when you assume we are talking about a motorcycle specific GPS in an RV Forum???

Some further clarity in your post would have been useful...
Look at how it might have prevented this "Border War".

Anyway...
The RV770 released 2017 and the RV660 in 2015. I got the RV770 earlier this year and it's been a great GPS so far. Other than the obvious 6" vs. 7" display, the RV770 wifi updates are pretty cool and it's all around faster than the RV660!

Garmin RV 760

I have had this unit for about two years. In "RV Mode", it works okay but as with all devices there are caveats.
First, the unit will route you based on the maps you have installed. In some instances, I have been routed over an underpass because the mapping did not know the clearance for that bridge. This is good, I guess, if the underpass was too low. But on an interstate, most of these are high enough to clear a 18 wheeler so it is high enough for my rig and I just allow the unit to "recalculate"
Second, also based on maps installed, is the route the unit will put you on should be compared with other routing applications such as Google Maps and the Good Sam travel planner. I once had a nice route planned but when compared to other apps, I found a railroad bridge that was only 10'6" high and a serious traffic delay due to road work.
Third, be sure to have "outs" for those unforeseen and unknown obstacles to your route. Even Google, Good Sam and Mobile RV do not have anything about traffic accidents. My unit has the traffic monitor installed but I have never seen that work very well. Most times I am in the traffic when it finally tells me that there's a delay for the next 20 miles!
Fourth, make sure your device can add Points Of Interest (POI) with proximity alerts. I have several POIs for RV Parks, Rest Stops, Pilot/Flying J, other Truck Stops, etc. All these add additional functionality and can assist with making travel easier. On my Garmin, you can change the location from where I am at to another location such as where I am going or where I may need gas.
Finally, I believe that there's no perfect solution. Look on You Tube and see what each device has features and will it be what you need for your specific travels.

Good Luck.

Getting back to the original question...I prefer the RV770LTM for many reasons, but I particularly enjoy the voice activation feature. It performs many of it's functions simply by voice command. Very user friendly and especially nice while traveling down the highway.

I like the campground and gas station feature on the 770. Some parks have addresses gps wonít take. With garmin you can type in name of resort and it pops up. I also like that it gives me gas stations with easy in/out access.
