No altimeter that I can find. However I do have an app on my ipad that provides altitude. Likely available for droids and Iphone also.

My wireless camera works sometimes. Sometimes it does not. I have a theory that the location of the transmitter may have something to do with this. The transmitter is behind the headboard. I threw some pillows off the bed. Maybe the pillows piled high were blocking the signal. I will know tomorrow if the placement of the pillows had anything to do with it.
I think the Voyager does a better job because it is mounted up high with less stuff/things blocking the signal. The signal needs a straight, uninterrupted path from the transmitter at the back of the trailer to the receiver in the truck.

Thanks for the heads-up on the iPhone/ipad app's. Do you know if this type of app require data? I'm asking because I'm a Canadian and we try really hard not to use data on our phones in the USA as they kill us on costs.

Cheers
Doug

Hi Doug,

I stand corrected about my prior post which states that the Garmin RV760LMT did not disclose any altimeter function. I had read the owners manual for this unit and there is no reference or instruction relating to an altimeter function.

Since that time, I have received my RV760 and have been using it on the road for several weeks now. Earlier today , on the way back from Jacksonville, SuEllyn was playing with the 760, and came across some functions not included in any of the instructions that we had read.

There are five interactive tabs along the bottom of the screen. The second tab from the right is a raised gray tab that, by default, shows the ETA while on a trip. Pushing this tab discloses a list of features that you can monitor in this tab. One of these is elevation above sea level. Others include the mile marker that you are at, and the time of sunset.

This was a major find as far as we are concerned.

Brian

The backup camera ain't worth a plug nickel in the rain-
The water beads up on the lens and distorts the image to the point it's useless, but- I don't drive around in the rain every day-

SchuHouse, those are my pics. The system works great and I would recommend mounting high. The rubber grommet through the light works too. it leaves any seals untouched. The ONLY thing I have noticed on my installation is that when I placed my camera I got it a bit to one side instead of dead on center. You do not notice the bit of wire running from the back of the camera to the running light. It looks factory to me with less holes and that is a good thing. After buying one system that failed about 4 months out with no recourse I would highly recommend the wireless Voyager. I did NOT buy a voyager monitor. The place in Louisiana I bought it from had another suggestion and what, he said, they use in their shop. It saved some money. I think it was RV Cams that I bought it from in Baton Rouge.

Just an update. We returned our Garmin rv 760. Two issues. 1. It couldn't find a campground that my apple map and google map had no issues with.
2. It froze up on one of the exits leaving the exit direction on the screen until we finally came to a new exit. I did more reading online and found similar issues from others. At that price point I expect more.
We are now about to try the rand mcnally rv 7720' I hope to have better luck
We still haven't installed camera. I guess I was trying to get gps down first.

Eureka!
Finally, after our visit to Jackson Center all is working perfect.
We have been using Rand McNally rv gps 7720. Much better directions than Garmin. ( note to Artic. It does have elevation reading)
While having some warranty work done I had factory installl Voyager camera. It works flawlessly with Rand. I did need to purchase correct video I put cord to make the interface work.
Now off to camping in lake George NY for a week and a half.

I wonder if the Voyager camera will interface with my 7" touch screen DVD navigation head unit...
Is the Voyager wireless?
My current wireless system is cheesy and only works sometimes.

Gee that sounds good. A few pictures of the factory installation and how it interfaces with the rand gps would be great!
Thanks
