I know there are other queries on this, but they're a bit old.

I have a Garmin 550, which I use on the motorbike and in the car. Now I have a caravan too.

The Garmin has a truck setting and a function to prefer highways, but I still find it taking me down unsuitable routes. I know there are dedicated units complete, but to save me buying a second machine, can I get software, SD card or whatever, which will give a dedicated caravan bias to routes?

I bought my first GPS (as they were then called) 7 years ago when I bought a motorhome - but am still using a Navigon car unit. I use the Truck setting or usually just the fastest car route when in doubt and I always check the proposed route first but as you say there can still be problems.
If you have a smart phone it might be worth looking at what is available and reading any reviews. Android is a problem as they only give you 15 minutes to change your mind on a purchase - hardly time to assess if it is any good!
By the way I always pre-program the final approach to a camp site using the (Caravan Club or whatever) guide as no GPS is going to get this right.
