New user confused about this app

I have planned a trip to a campground with two stops before it-fuel and WM. The stops show on the trip details. When I press the “go” icon (red arrow pointing right) to the right of the campground (final destination) it takes me straight there and ignores the stops.

What am I doing wrong?

Using iOS.

New user confused about this app

I can help you, but I’m sorry that I can’t understand anything you’ve written.

Are you using the RV LIFE app?

Are you using it for trips planned in RV TripWizard, or are you using the RV Safe GPS for Directions?

I have a feeling that you are not using the Planned Trip to start your navigation. Or, you’re not selecting the NEXT stop, but rather the final destination instead.

I’m trying to figure what you’re saying, but don’t want to assume. Can you check your spelling and grammar, then retype it? Tell us what you are doing, step by step, and what part of the app you are using.

I’m sure I, or others can help better then.

I planned a trip on my Mac from my current location to a campground.
RV Trip Wizard-the red window pane on the left- on the Mac shows four stops:
1.Current location
2.Fuel stop-marked with a purple circle icon
3.Wal Mart-marked with a purple circle icon
4.Destination campground.

I open up the RV Life app on my iPad. Tap “RV Trip Wizard” from the menu that pops up from the bottom.Tap the “screenshot” of my trip listed under upcoming.

The trip shows up exactly as I planned it on the Mac.

There is a red right arrow icon on the far right of the entries for stops 2,3 and 4.

Stop 4 is the final destination so I tap that arrow. Navigation starts but it ignores stops 2 and 3.

Do I need to navigate to the stops one at a time?

Hope this clarifies.

AWESOME JOB clarifying!!!

You’re doing everything right,…EXCEPT…yes, you must select the NEXT STOP, NOT your final destination, as your…well… next stop. ;-)

RV Life isn’t the best navigation tool for sure. And this is kind of an example. Although, I will say that Garmin will press you with the same question when you have a multilevel stop route selected.

Kinda lame that it doesn’t know which stops you want to hit, if you just select your final destination. Maybe they’ll get that polished out in the future.

Also, your iPad must be GPS enabled if you plan to use it for navigation. Most aren't, so double check.

Yes, Apple unlike all other Tablets doesn't have a GPS chip unless you buy the iPad with Cellular built in. I found that out the hard way, greedy bastards...
