Bill PhilipMILTON, Vermont ★ ★ ★ ★ ★Hi Frank - I wanted to let you know that I received my refund, and want to thank you for your prompt attention to this. It is a shame that the GPS failed but it was a pleasure doing business with you none the less. I will certainly look to your business for any of my future needs.
---------- Frank Hi Bill, It is always nice to be appreciated, and especially nice to have someone take the time to show that appreciation. We definitely appreciate customers like you who understand that things do not always work out as we plan or hope for. Naturally we are sorry that the GPS had an issue, but we are not sorry to have you as our customer. Thanks Bill.

Geoffrey NgulluPhiladelphia, PA ★ ★ ★ ★ ★Hi Mr. Frank, First, thank you for sharing a brief personal belief and experience particular in Africa and other parts in the world. I was encouraged by your comments and hope to open up more doors of cooperation and opportunity for the less fortunate. Our organization is working to help drill wells for women and children in Tanzania whom had no other way around to acquire such a basic human need like water. Thank you so much and may God bless you and your business.
---------- Frank You are of course welcome. As promised, I did take a look on the internet for you and found that there are many churches and groups that work in Tanzania. I will send you a short list, along with some search terms hat you can search yourself. You can start with the National Baptist Convention, USA, Inc. Their number is 615.228.6292 or 866.531.3054.
Editor's Note: Geoffrey is from Tanzania and wanted to contact other organizations that help his people. I said I would search the internet and find some organizations that he could contact.
Debbie DesmondFountain Valley, CA ★ ★ ★ ★ ★Hi, I have purchased many TV's from you guys and your customer service is the best I've ever had. I purchased the 22inch HDLEDTV with DVD Player, Model No: NTD-2252. I accidentally during set up pressed Spanish and I can't get the setting back to English!! Frustrating. I've tried everything. Can you tell me how to get TV back to English. Thanks, Debbie. Love your company and your honesty.
---------- Frank Hola Debbie, Lo siento, eso que no hablo espaÃ±ol. Ok, seriously, when you first go into the Setup menu, it should be the 2nd item down on the 1st page. Look for something like "Lengua del menÃº EspaÃ±ol".
Lee RackleyPalmyra, PA ★ ★ ★ ★ ★Hi guys and girls items delivered, checked and installed; working wonderfully and do seem to fit my needs in the small RV. I want to thank you for your prompt shipment and very instructive emails; I am sure I will continue with your firm for future needs. Thank you again.
---------- Frank Hi Lee, Thank you for taking the time to send your kind comments. We started sending those instruction emails years ago, but we would like to enhance that by adding instruction videos on the website. Many people understand the internet, but there are many who do not and tend to be uncomfortable. We understand that and plan to do something to help those out. Enjoy your TV. We hope it will server you well for years to come.
James MaddenKitchener, ON Canada ★ ★ ★ ★ ★I am absolutely overjoyed with the GPS I purchased from you. I had very little updateing to do, so basically it was plug and play. Thanks for the great service I received during the buying of the GPS, the help was very helpful so much so I still consult it every now and again when I am looking for info.
---------- Frank Hi James, Glad you got a lot of use out of our GPS tips. We wanted to make sure all of our customers were able to use it quickly, without having to read the 100 plus pages of the user guide.
(Editors note: James is referring to the email we send everyone who purchase a Truck GPS from us. It basically tells our customers how to set it up & start using the GPS immediately and what settings they should be aware of.)
Sandra MansfieldBoise, Idaho ★ ★ ★ ★ ★You guys are awesome. I won't be able to check out the TV until Spring as I don't have 12V here where I live in the Winter. My 12V system is at my cabin and it's under snow. You people have done a great job with my order and that's why I recommend you to everyone who needs 12V appliances. Keep up the good work and have a VERY MERRY CHRISTMAS and HAPPY NEW YEAR...Sandy
---------- Frank Hi Sandy, Yes you can check it out, as all of our TVs have a 120 volt converter plug that you can use. :o) We really do appreciate customers like you, who make having a business a real joy. Thanks. Have a wonderful and happy holiday.
Editors Note: Sandy was one of the many customer who pre-ordered a 22" Skyworth TV/DVD. We sent her 3 update emails to keep her informed of the progress from Hong Kong to US, to Skyworth to RoadPro
Frederick BramanFleming Island, Florida ★★★★★Thank you for this helpful email. I happened on your site while looking for a small 12v TV for my boat. You had a better selection and prices than the marine sites had. Also, cruising sailors face some of the same issues as truckers; size, volume of the unit, power consumption, etc., and your site addressed all of them. Maybe you should insert a marine word somewhere in your web page so you come up when boaters are searching for 12 v devices. I look forward to getting my TV. Fred
---------- Frank Hi Fred, We did have 3 models of marine TVs from Skyworth, until we could not get them anymore. We still have a 19" Refurbished Marine Skyworth with a new TV warranty though. Our main focus is on the long hauler, but you make a good point and we may consider that in the future, after we get the website updated and add all the products we want to add. Happy boating.
Janet JudyKurtistown, HI ★ ★ ★ ★ ★Frank, Never have I had a more enjoyable experience with a company in my whole life! Thank you from the bottom of my heart for being so patient with me and helping as you have. My son, Ray, is going to be home by the time you can get the refrigerator to him so I am sending it directly to him, good thing I called the little stinker!
Happiness always for you and your beautiful family and workers,
Editors Note: Talked to Judy on the phone helping her to get her order placed so she could buy her son an Engel Fridge/Freezer. Frank.
Graham FralicBridgewater, Nova Scotia, Canada ★ ★ ★ ★ ★Hi frank, I just want to say thanks for the great service and also want to let you I received my TND 510 . I also would like to get the traffic receiver for this unit when it is available . Please let me know when you know Thanks again for the great service.
---------- Frank Hi Graham, You are in luck, you can get the Traffic Receiver now directly from Rand McNally's website. Here is the link for your convenience.
John BoubelikElm Grove, LA ★ ★ ★ ★ ★F&M--So far, you guys are unbelievable. Keep up the good work, I can't wait to get the unit. My wife and I leave in about 2 weeks for 5 months in Alaska, and this unit has all the things I've been looking for. I should be able to give you some good feedback as we start out. Again, thanks for your support.
---------- Frank Hi John, Very much appreciated. You should have gotten it today. Enjoy your trip to Alaska and I will look forward to getting your review when you return. have a safe trip.
Editor's Note: John purchased the new Rand McNally RVND5510 GPS for RV. We sent him our tips write-up to orient him to the RV GPS and John is expressing his appreciation.
Deborah DesmondFountain Valley, California ★ ★ ★ ★ ★Wow. great and personal customer service!! I know where I'm gonna shop from now on!!. Thanks for cleaning up my booboos. DebbieD. I got scared at first cause I saw they have been charged to my debit and then I saw 'your card has been declined'. That kinda stuff keeps me awake at night:) Now I can sleep. Thanks Frank
---------- Frank Hi Debbie, You are welcome. Consider using Google Checkout or PayPal button next time. You will not have to keep entering your data every time you order. After the first time, you will only need to log on and ok the order and your done. And PayPal offers buyer protection and you can actually call then if you have a problem.
Gerald NoirotMechanicville, New York ★ ★ ★ ★ ★I hope you get this and can use it for a feedback or testimonial, This is the best use of technology going! Finally something that lives up to the hype! I have only had it a day but the ease of using it and the pin point accuracy I can tell this is going to pay for itself in about 2 weeks and then start making me money! I just changed jobs from a local route in NY to a 9 state regional run, so I am way out of my comfort zone. Thanks to the TND700 I had no worries with 5 stops around Boston yesterday! Not being paid hourly (something I always was) makes owning this a must! Thanks Jerry N
---------- Frank Hi Jerry, Always nice to get feedback from our customers. You are basically right. The Rand McNally is "the best use of technology going". We have been selling about 80 to 100 units a month and I can tell you that almost everyone appreciates what the TND does for them. To date, we have had only 2 customer who have gone out of their way to complain about the TND. And it is always trivial complaints, that have nothing to do with the main purpose of the Truck GPs, which is to keep you safe (Low bridge Warnings) and save you money (Keep you off of restricted roads). Our customer know that the TND makes it very easy to send that information to Rand so they can correct it. And lets face it.. The TND is for truckers and truckers are responsible to make sure it is the best possible solution for their needs. After all, the benefit is to them. I might also add for other readers of this post, that Rand is coming out with a new unit designed specifically for RVers.

J & G Chapman Trucking/Jamie ChapmanChillicothe, Missouri ★ ★ ★ ★ ★My husband received this for his christmas present a month before Christmas and absolutely loves it. He said this was the best gift ever. So thank you for this email as well, it really provided great insite on the product and it is what it is cracked up to be. Thanks again. I recommend any trucker to have this amazing GPS.
---------- Frank Hi Jamie, Thanks for the great feedback. Like you, we are convinced that the Rand McNally is by far the very best Trucker GPS available in the market today and it continues to keep getting better. We have sold over 800 GPSes, last year and over 1/2 have been the two Rand McNally TND700s and the TND500s. The TND has passed every test with flying colors, except perhaps the install could be a little more robust. We love the TND and I use the TND700 myself, because I love the way the big 7" high definition screen clearly points out the way to o when I come to those multi-highway exits. No other GPS does this so clearly. The TND was a wonderful gift that will help keep your husband safe from low bridges, save money on fuel and keep him from getting expensive tickets for being where he is not supposed to be. Enjoy and safe driving.
Gail LortNASHUA, New Hampshire ★ ★ ★ ★ ★Hi to Frank & Marissa: This is so very nice of you to include all this info. You dont find this kind of service frpm too many places for truckers the days. I know of the Skyworth from drooling over them at a trucktop that had the 19 and 22 in years back as a driver who said one of these days..... well, after open heart surgery I sold the big house I inherited, paid off all the bills bought my 2005 volvo (cash) and now! I get to get my 22 in Skyworth Ive been waiting for. I just bought this laptop and have really been reserching stuff before I buy it. I thought the suspersonic 1080 i had a nice picture but theyre have been issues with the power cord and picture quality over the years. But then I found the perfect 22in with all the bells and whistles and a dvd which is the cats meow. Since in all the trucks Ive driven or owned is the first thing to go. Im tickled pink, cant wait to get it. Thanks so much for supporting the trucking industry. Keep up the great work. HAPPY NEW YEARS. Gail 9-Lives Lort
---------- Frank You are very welcome, Gail. We try to provide the value that really is needed today. We find the new TVs can be a bit confusing for some of our customers. Even those who consider themselves to be savvy, do not always understand them, so felt a few pages of tips to help clear up any confusion would be helpful to our customers, as we want them to get value for their money and certainly be able to use the TV, as was intended. Issues will come up for all brands and all products. That is just a way of life, but the important thing is how well the product gets supported. We find Skyworth to be one of our premier accounts because they go that extra mile to support their products. That is why you can get that new remote or the frayed cord replaced. You can also get the TV repaired very cheap even long after the warranty runs out. Enjoy your new Skyworth.
Bob BrzozowskiMiddletown, Connecticut ★ ★ ★ ★ ★Hi Frank, WOW! The TV arrived this evening and the other one is on it's way back. I can't believe that happened so fast. The replacement is the upgraded A-3 model mentioned in your voice mail and the factory packaging was undisturbed, all accessories accounted for. I gave it an hour to come up to room temperature (it's been cold in the Northeast) and then checked the operation. It functions perfectly and will be wrapped and under the Christmas Tree by tomorrow. Thanks again for your help and regard for customer satisfaction. It's something that's missing from a lot of business today but you and Road Trucker are obviously a cut above the rest. I will be ordering a couple new appliances from you after the holidays. Best regards and Happy Holidays.
---------- Frank Hi Bob, What can I say, but thanks for the recognition. We do try to reconcile the return process as best we can. Enjoy..
Karen GreenwoodBelle Vernon, PA ★ ★ ★ ★ ★Hi, Just wanted to drop you a little note and tell you my son loves the Rand McNally GPS. He says it does so much more than he ever realized a GPS could do. Thank you so much for calling me and then talking to Scott to explain it to him. Like I told you before no one else would have done that, if you ordered online they would collect the money and send you what you ordered. Thanks again I really appreciate the extra mile that you went.
