4 Must Have RV Apps
Unplugging from technology is one of the things we look forward to the most when we RV. However, smartphones prove to be powerful tools for navigating from point A to B and providing useful information. Here are some apps you won’t want to RV without.
Waze is like Google Maps on steroids. It allows you to communicate with fellow travelers along your route in real time to avoid traffic, construction, speed traps, accidents and other obstacles that may hinder your journey. Waze is perfect for RVing because it’s easy to add stops (like gas, food or sightseeing) to your route without messing up your original navigation settings.
iExit is an interstate exit guide that takes the guesswork out of choosing an exit. It uses the location of your device to tell you what gas stations, restaurants, and stops are coming up at the exits along your route. The app also recommends exits based on your search criteria, so you don’t have to guess where the clean restrooms are.
Okay, it’s a little pricey, but if you like to hit the road and plan as you go or just need to find a campground Allstays is the best app. Allstays allows you to search for campgrounds in your area based on location and can filter results tailored to your criteria, such as amenities, elevation, price, pet friendliness, etc. You can write reviews, plan your next destination and book a campground even if you don’t have a good internet connection. Allstays offers another version of the app specifically for active military and veterans.
