Good_Sam_GPS_heroWith summer heating up and the search for the Best Small Towns in America around the corner, Rand McNally and Good Sam are helping travelers across the country plan and navigate their road trips.

When you hit the road, you want to know that you are safe and have a comprehensive list of towns and points-of-interest to visit as you travel.

That’s why Good Sam and Rand McNally teamed up to create the Good Sam GPS, complete with thousands of campgrounds, RV Parks, and Best of the Road towns and places to explore along the way.

Fully loaded with over 2,200 Good Sam parks and thousands of additional campgrounds planning where to stay, knowing that each one has been inspected and rated with the exclusive Good Sam 10/10*/10 Rating System, helps you choose the right RV park or campground for you.
Not to mention Lifetime Maps, a suite of RV Tools for customized set up, and Wi-Fi Connectivity so you can always be prepared with up to the minute weather information, all displayed on a 7″ high definition touchscreen.
