computer/tablet navigation maps

Is there any map apps one can use to plan a MH trip that specifically route for large RVs? Google maps are nice but do not specifically have the large trailers and MHs in mind.

I searched for months for a software solution for either PC or MAC that would allow me to program RV data with no luck. Also searched for an app for my iPad again no luck.

I bought the new Rand McNally RVND 5510. Very happy with it. It allow you to input length, weight, etc... which it then takes in to account in routing your trip.

Still want an app for my iPad so I can take advantage of screen size.

Would this be of any help?

I'm with Jim E on this one. I use Microsoft Streets & Trips with a POI for low clearances. There are several with different heights and you can choose the height you want. Open the POI, plan the route, check to see if the low clearance icon is on or near the route, travel.

The Discovery Owners Club also has a MEGA POI database. It has just about everything you can think of in the MEGA POI file. Campgrounds, fuel stops, rest areas, state parks by state, etc.,

I have not found one for the MAC or iPad, yet. I use MS&T with the Windows Laptop for planning purposes.

It is what it is, and then it is what you make of it.

Take a look at Trailer Life Directory Campground Navigator. I have used it for planning trips for the last 3 years and it is a great planning tool but not the greatest for use as a navigation tool. You setup your RV height, wide and length, map out your trip and the program will warn you about problems based on your setup. It also has warnings for grades.
