Get lost in the moments, Not the Route. Let RV 890 navigate your journey so you can enjoy the memories you make along the way.



This large, 8-inch GPS navigator features a bright, high-resolution edge-to-edge touchscreen display so you can easily see important information — in landscape or portrait mode.


RV 890 takes into account the size and weight of your vehicle, then finds the best route1. And you can save profiles for multiple vehicles or trailers.


Know of upcoming steep grades, sharp curves, weight limits and more before you get to them. Detailed elevation information helps you prepare for possible steep grades along the route.


Simplify your trip with a preloaded directory of camper parks and services from ACSI, CamperContact and Trailer’s PARK, which can be filtered by amenity such as showers, electricity and more, plus content from iOverlander™.


Pair with the Garmin Drive™ app2 to easily import and share routes and share GPX files.



Need directions? Just say 'OK Garmin' and tell RV 890 where to take you. It responds to your spoken requests and then navigates to wherever you need to go.


Built-in Wi-Fi connectivity makes it easy to keep your maps and software up to date without using a computer. On-screen cues show when new updates are available.


When paired with the Garmin Drive™ app, live2 traffic helps you avoid delays and find detours. Also, view detailed weather forecasts, current conditions, animated radar and more.


Preloaded with HEMA 100K Topo Maps


Built-in Bluetooth® wireless technology lets you sync your compatible smartphone with VR 890 to make calls3 without taking your hands off the wheel.


When paired with the Garmin Drive app, you’ll be able to see text messages and other notifications2 from your phone displayed on the navigator’s screen.


View TripAdvisor traveller ratings for hotels, restaurants and attractions along your route or near your destination.


Preloaded Foursquare® data on your navigator makes it easy to find new shops, restaurants and millions of other popular places.


Your navigator includes map updates and comes preloaded with full Australian maps. Plus, you’ll have access to free map downloads via Garmin Express for North America, South America, Australia and New Zealand, South Africa, the Middle East and North Africa.


Pair RV 890 with our BC™ 35 wireless backup cameras (sold separately) or compatible third-party wired cameras so you can see what’s behind you.


From personal navigation and dash cameras to backup cameras, Garmin has you covered from all angles.
