Anybody Using 2013 RV Plan 'N' Go

I've been using the 2012 version of RV Trip Planner, formerly from Good Sam. Has anyone upgraded to this latest version and what is your impression of it?

Angry Poor, Bad,not worth the money

Ordered new Plan and Go downloaded it was very disappointed with into on campgrounds. Called to find out when these upgrades would post????. Could not get any answer . Apparently there is a dispute over the amount Plan and Go will pay RV Navigator for the data they have collected . Also tried to down fall trips from RV Navigator would not work. Returned to vendor after one week. I will use 2012 until I find another that is better not Plan and GO.

Thanks for the heads up. Coincidentally, I just did a new update today for 2012. A note said they would no longer do updates for it.

Hate to diverge from the op point but if you are looking for a good rv trip planner take a look at rvtripwizard.com. it is a subscription service but at a reasonable cost. They are quick to add missing campgrounds and the routing seems to be very much in line with my Garmin Dezl. In your profile you can identify such things as camping memberships you have, hours a day you like to drive, etc.
As it uses Google maps as the basis of its functionality one of the things you can do is zoom in on the campground you are considering. Good way to make sure there is really a campground there and not a vacant lot! It also identified low bridges.

I am not associate with the vendor just a satisfied user.

I got the 2013 RV plan-and-Go, but it isn't an upgrade tor the 2012 Good Sam program. It has nothing to do with Good Sam. Apparently Good Sam discontinued that program and this new one is directly from the software company that was doing it. The program is pretty good, but the park information in ist isn't anywhere near as good as the old one, I guess it's not the same as what is in the Good Sam book any more. I wasn't sure if I'd keep it, but the company said they will be updating the info, so I kept it. anyway, there are long discussions about it on their forums, if you are interested, http://www.undertowsoftware.com/forums/viewforum.php?f=16

I called them, too, but didn't hear anything about the money dispute. I was able to use all my trips from the the old RV navigator, but like you I am very disappointed wth the campground info in it :-( If you find a good/better planning tool, I'd be interested, too, so please make sure to post the info here.

I called them as well. None of the links to the campground web sites work.
They said they'll have an update soon. This software worked great when it was sold as Trailer life campground navigator. We'll see...I don't much hope of getting my 30 bucks back if they don't come to an arrangement about the data.

Update

Just after I posted to this forum I got an email from Undertow saying that there is an update to RV plan N go available on their web site. Let's hope this resolves some issues.
