Ratings and Reviews
The app/planning tool has a lot of nice features. Currently, I am planning a 30 day road trip and find it very helpful. I like that I can use the web based tool on my PC and the App on my iPad and iPhone. It’s very versatile. The mapping/route planning feature gives us assurance that the roads are safe for our 40’ motor home. And, the research options make it easy to find campgrounds, points of interest, restaurants, etc. I particularly like that it shows where the campgrounds are on the map. I think it would be helpful if they color coded the campgrounds based on ratings. The calculations of mileage, time, and expense are also helpful. I used the export function to export the trip details into an EXCEL spreadsheet. Very easy. I was disappointed that the exported file did not have separate columns for gas, campsites, and food. That would really enhance the budgeting capabilities.
Ok planner. Useless GPS/Nav. Its developers never try to use the app.
The UI is horrible and I can’t explain how terrible the navigation part is. Don’t rely on it. I’ve missed so many exits and been routes into dead ends so many times I lost count. It’s also at least 2 blocks behind on your location. It’ll say something like turn left from the left two lanes, but there’s 2 or 3 exits on that side and it doesn’t say an exit number or road to follow. The map can never figure out if I’m zooming or rotating the map. Why would I rotate? This was nice at first. I paid for it. Then I routed to so many rest stops that have been closed for years apparently.
There’s no way to update the app data. It’s useful for looking up some parks. The directions on the exact same route are often dead wrong. It tells you a super confusing but entirely wrong next turn OFTEN in cities, and doesn’t even label the highway you’re getting on (Ex:“275 North”) so you can self correct.
Most recently I’ve noticed whenever you leave the app, it snaps back to your current location. The stupidest possible choice for a travel app. So you click on an rv park in another stage, go to their webpage to check it out, and when you come back you have to re-scroll around to find that area again because it snapped back to your current location. None of the developers have ever used this app.
Users beware RV Planner is not compatible with Apple iPhone, iPad and Safari browser
First I want to let you know that tech support was very good and I really like the web version once tech support was able to get me working on Firefox browser. First I tried my iPhone 12 because that is what I will be using in my vehicle while traveling but it didn’t work right and tech support said people do not use it on their iphone they mostly use it on a computer or iPad. So I tried my MacBook and it wouldn’t work and tech support told me it will not work on Safari browser and I will have to use Firefox. So I tried it on Firefox and it worked great and I built a trip. When I loaded the app on my iPad I can see my prebuilt trip that I built but I can’t get past the the screen that shows all my stops and the map is not showing the trip layout. I am frustrated that I have to keep going to tech support every time I try to use the app or website and told it is not compatible. I have worked as the lead on a web development team for AT&T so I can state with knowledge the development team needs to do a lot of rework!
The RV Planner has great potential and could be a very awesome tool and I hope they resolve these major issues.
