Please make the mobile GPS app rotate (Horizontal)

I would really like the mobile RV Life GPS to rotate on the iPhone app.

I have used RVTrip Wizard ever since it became available and think it is the best planning tool out there. Must say though I still miss RV Plan 'N' Go and still do use it once in a while. My current motorhome does not have a navigation system. I have a 12" monitor setting on the dash by the windshield so I can easily see it without taking my eyes off the road. I cast a retired iPhone with no SIM card to the display for navigation. I use RV Life and Apple Maps for the software. I like Apple Maps because of the Stop Light and Stop Sign callouts. I do all my planning with RV Life and download the maps into the iPhone. I compare the routes to be sure of everything and adjust accordingly. With this setup I can easily switch to any online app I want at anytime. I still have the AT&T Mobley service. We also have Visible and Version for hotspots if needed. This all works well, but the RV Life does not rotate to landscape (horizontal) which makes it difficult to see. I have a Samsung tablet, but it won't run RV Life. My iPads do not have GPS and I really don't want to add external GPS antennas to them. My set up would be perfect if RV Life would rotate like many other apps.
