Although much of the data might be readily available no one is going to do the integration to produce another free or cheap app, and few will pay for the value they get.
I get by very well using RVTW and Copilot running on an iPad.
My boar navigation system was called Open Chart Plotter Navigation and it is a free download. I don't mind paying the $39 for RVTW because it is a good planning tool and I would gladly pay more for a more comprehensive navigator. RVTW tells me when I'm low on fuel, but doesn't tell me where to get it. I have to plead guilty to being a dude with multi-tasker deficiency (MTD) and I'm not good at driving while looking at two phones and a tablet looking for a gas station! Greg
