Rand McNally on iPad - Recommendation???


Has anyone used the Rand McNally RV GPS app for iPad? Since I already have a new iPad with cell & wifi it may be a nice solution.

Thanks for the feedback.

Try the $14.99 Co-Pilot or the FREE one before paying out the $99 for Rand.

We have it and like it a lot. We use an iPad mount on the dash. We put in all the pertinent specs of the RV and toad and it only gives routes that are safe.

One issue we did have is that it once wanted to take us on a small ferry, that technically we met the specs, but the drive onto it was too steep, so we turned around and then selected the option of 'no ferries' on the app. ;-) We never knew there was a ferry in this area ( near our daughters home) and SIL said it had just recently opened so at least the app was up to date!

We have been using it for 2 years. Like it a lot. No gps is perfect. This one is as good as any other, and better on some respects. It has never routed us on an RV inappropriate route, though it had very occasionally chosen a "long way." Nevertheless, so did our other TomTom (in-dash) so there you have it.

We also use a windshield mount, suction cupped to the driver's side window and positioned in the "corner" between windshield and side window, so it blocks exactly zero percent if my view. I love the iPad display size!!
