RV Life on Android

It was bad enough that RVLife only showed my trips on 1 of my 3 devices. Since the July 2 update, it no longer shows my trips at all. Instead it shows 3 pages (Trip Wizard Integration, Access Your Trips, and Download Offline Maps).

AT&T phone is Android 8.1.0
T-Mobile phone is Android 8.0.0
Android Pad is Android 7.0


All three devices have two accounts (same on each) on them. I used to be able to cross link without having to log out of one account and into the other on the one device that worked, since both google play accounts were on the master account.

Updated for a better explanation. My RV Trip Wizard account has a different account name than my google phone account. When you log into RVLife, it asks you for your account. I gave it my RV Trip Wizard account, and it logged me in and showed me my trips. When the July 2 version came out, it no longer showed me my trips, even though both account names are on google play. I can create a second user account on the phone and android pad that matches the RV trip wizard account. Then log into the second account Download RV Life again, and log in as the RV Trip wizard account, and my trips will show. However, that user account shows as not being paid.


User management is definitely broken - whether by design or unintentionally. The user account in google play should not have to match the user account in RV Trip Wizard, especially since account are now system wide in Social Knowledge, and the account in RV Trip Wizard was paid prior to the RV Life. I am willing to bet that many RV Trip Wizard users do not have the same user id as they do on IOS or Android, as many folks have multiple mail accounts that they use for various needs.


In my case I have three accounts. The one I use for IRV2 is not the same as my RV Trip Wizard account, nor my Google phone account.

Sometimes I have to logout of the RV Life app and log back in to get the Trips tab to behave and show my trips. I think this happens if I've let the app run too long (days/weeks) without logging back in. Your iRV2 and RVTW logins should be exactly the same however.

We haven't had them on for awhile. As far as logins go. On android - when you download RVLife and purchase RVLife, it is assigned to the account your phone/pad is using. Then RVLife asks you to LOG INTO your RV Trip Wizard, and it finds your RV Trip wizard account. That SHOULD be everything you need to make it work. They should not be required to be the same. That is why you have to log in! If the accounts had to be the same, you wouldn't need to log in. The device account is only a payment mechanism. Anything else is either a bug or very poor programming (which is what I did for IBM and GE) design.

Hark! I uninstalled and reinstalled RV Life using my primary gmail account on the phones and android pad. Then logged into RV Life using my RVTW account. Voila! Now RVLife works on all three devices - something it has never done. My guess is that either something was fixed on the host end or that the July 2nd update fixed some bugs but had an incompatibility with the older version. Either way, at least the trips show up on all three devices and can be used with Waze or Google Maps.


I look forward to native turn by turn being enabled on Android using my RVTW routes !
