At that point I figured the lifetime maps are a waste of money. Probably better to just plan on buying a new unit every couple years.

I don't know if it's still that way or not.....

I've been using cell phone and google maps mostly. I was using Waze but I find that the google app has a louder voice which i need in the RV.
I sure do wish Google would add settings for low overhead and weight restrictions.
Are you listening Google Maps?
They have steered me down a couple roads where I ended up getting hemmed in a bit (no trucks after a few turns in & no place to turn around, etc..)
The cheapest and best way to avoid those situations is to stop by Love's or Flying J and purchase a Trucker's Atlas. You can get the really nice plastic coated 2018 one for about $50.00, or the regular paper one like I did for $14.00. Gives all low clearances in each State among other things.
