2020 Vega touch

What all can be controlled by APP's associated with the Vega touch? What electronic devices are required - Smart phone, I Pad, etc.? I am new to all this electronic stuff and trying to learn what works the best and their limitations. Can the NAV on the cornerstone be controlled by the person in the passenger seat and if so what APP would be required. Help me get smarter on this stuff - no wise cracks please.

You need the vega touch nebula app on your smartphone or tablet. Its $14.99 in the app store I believe. Once you have it and pair w your coach you can control anything on the vega touch via your device locally, and can control everything but slides and awnings and also monitor the coach remotely if you have internet in the coach. You cant control the nav from your devices, only vega touch items.

The Navigation system cannot be controlled by the person sitting in the passenger seat. That might be a good thing to have but it is currently not available. What Dee and I have is that she has her own Garmin GPS unit that she can hold in her hands or sit on the console to the right side of her seat. My experience is that you dont want someone else monkeying around with your display when you are in tight maneuvering situation.... It is most important for me to see what I need to see when I need to see it.... and I would want no possibility of Dee deciding at that time that she would like to examine an exit 100 miles in the future and where we might want to eat lunch. IMHO, but a strong preference.

Remember, the Aspire VT does not have remote access - at least the ones in Perry didnít.

Yes, phone. Remote meaning via phone to hotspot in coach to VT. Super if it has that capability - odd that Firefly spent 20 minutes explaining a non-issue. Thanks for the update

I added the Mobley hot spot. I guess they figure anyone purchasing that price range of MH's is going to have a wifi hot spot to be able to monitor the coach off site. The time and gas savings checking on the MH once a week more than pays the monthly fee for the hot spot. Just another way to look at it if one stores offsite.
It was also one of the selling points for us.

Terry,
Which app do you use on the iPhone? I was led to believe the new Aspire VT used the Mira app which is local only instead of the Nebula app like the Anthem/Cornerstone. (Local as in physically near/within wireless range of the coach and not over the internet from anywhere in the world.) If it is able to be monitored remotely over the internet like the Anthem/Cornerstone that would be great - I was really bummed when I was told it wasn't.

The passenger nav unit on the high end Newmars does allow the passenger to control the unit, set up routes, destination etc.

Chuck can you expand on that info about monitoring the coach when not there
Are you talking about hotspot on our phones or a device in the coach
I’m a little tech challenged and use my nebula system a lot from my phone when around it
I have a WiFi fire fly router in the coach but again
Not the smartest at all this but slowly figuring it out
Or most of it

The Mobley is an AT&T wifi hotspot that I leave on 24/7. The Prepwave router is linked to the Mobley giving me access to the Vega Tough using the Nebula app away from the coach without having to be in range as it is now connected via wifi.
Works on the same principle as my security cameras and home thermostat that I can monitor as we travel.
