Good app for travel, helpful to plot a course and find things we need that other RV’ers my or may not. I use this in conjunction with other apps and maps. We travel in a converted sprinter and don’t need same things big-rig RV’s do (sewer, 50amp, pull-through sites), adversely we prefer some smaller sites that large setups can’t navigate with more privacy and aren’t big gravel lots (woods, fire pits sometimes, etc). SO, good news is you can read reviews and poke around and see if the site’s for you. I do wish you could filter results by some things that are applicable to ME and other small RV’ers - I’ve said as much in my review to the developers, people camping in smaller rigs is a big movement and there’s nothing this good for that application. BUT, this tool is the best one out, just use it with your brain engaged and you’ll be fine, big or small rig.
This new and updated version are worth every cent! Me and my wife are full timers since four years and this is the first and only app that really work. Easy to find and compare RV parks and campgrounds with the new map function. You can plan either ahead or when you actually are on the road. Presented in a VERY informative way where you see where yo are, and what campgrounds are nearby and IN THE DIRECTION YOU ARE TRAVELING! Other apps shows within a certain amount of miles, but if it is in the wrong direction not much use. I bought the paid version so I could download the app and use it off line. That is the biggest difference from the free version. And two weeks when traveling on hwy 10 on our way to LA I had use for it since Verizon went down to 2G linger than expected. Also great when you plan a route and have poor internet. A new function that I like from last week, is that finally I can use my iPad in landscape mode. For me that was important. It also tells me that the developer does not just want to cash in short term, but really have the intention to serve us users long-term. I have seen some fellow RVers complain it is not complete. Nothing is complete and remember - even the sun has spots... Highly recommended from BasilFawly!
I began using this recently in conjunction with RV Trip Wizard. My first experience was that the link between the two was broken but it was quickly fixed. The routing, however, is suspect. I was routed through a residential and commercial district with lots of traffic, a slow speed limit and ton of lights vs. continuing on a freeway. Coming back via the freeway saved me 1/2 hour. Also, I was charged twice to have this app on my phone and iPad. If that’s correct, I urge you to re-examine your policy. If it’s a mistake, please issue me a refund.
I plotted a trip to a campground from my house just to test out what it suggested. You see there is a road that most gps apps will suggest because it is more direct, but it is a very sketchy, seasonal, un-maintained road even for a car. Given my rig size, this app gave the same suggested route that they all do which is on this road. If I didn’t know any better and trusted this “RV” specific gps app, I would have been stuck with no cell reception, or down the side of a cliff. They responded that they will update the map servers. Does this mean they are relying on real time human updates? I have my family in the truck when I am towing and this app would have literally put us in danger. Since it appears to just be a clone of google maps with worse interface and some poi pre-loaded; I will stick with google maps and hope that they implement a towing feature.
