Not sure how it happened, maybe after a software update, maybe after fiddling with it, I don't know. I was on a trip to the next CG and noticed the symbology was different. I usually see a RV tracking on the road in the GPS but I saw a little wedge/plane looking thing instead. I figured hmm, must be something new in the latest update. I then got into the options and nope, my profile was not using the RV profile but an auto profile. I changed it, it rerouted slightly and all was well again.

If the symbol tracking the road is not a motorhome as you may have seen in the past, check your vehicle profile settings!

Good observation, @Neal. I'm not at the coach now, but I seem to recall that when you first fire up the Garmin (ours is the RV760LMT), there's an authentication step involved or you get the standard car configuration. This ancient noggin may be mistaken, but I don't think so.
