RVTW and RVLife "routing."

Read an article that confused me regarding the connection between these two apps. It stated that RV life "GPS routing" connects to TW. But do you need RV Life pro to translate the data on your RV that is already entered into TW?

Your question needs a bit of clarification. But let me give you this…

Do you need “Pro” to “connect” to RVLife? The answer your is “no”; you don’t need a Pro subscription to sync your RVTW trips into the RVLife app.

Do you need Pro to have RV SAFE gps routing in the RVLife app?
Yes. You need Pro to have “RV SAFE” gps navigation and Offline map downloads. Otherwise, you will need to use Apple or Google mapping.

Hi, I will try to communicate more accurately. I already am a TW subscriber and I have RV life app. What I don't understand; is the RV Life App map that includes filters for my specific RV included in my TW subscription or do I need to upgrade to RVLife Pro to get that level of protection.

Not making sense really. But I think I know what you’re “confused” about.

The “RV SPECS” you input into the App will be for the RV GPS guidance. Those have nothing to do with the trip you’ve planned already in RVTW.

You’re probably thinking that the route you’ve built online in RVTW will force the app to navigate the same route…but it will not…unless you are a Pro level and utilize the RV GPS function.

This trips, no pun intended, a lot of folks up.

Wow, you must know my wife, I don't make sense to her either .
1. Already subscribe to RVTW.
2. I want to use the RV GPS to assure I don't route travel through a place where my TT shouldn't be.
3. Do I need to upgrade to RVLife Pro?

Hysterical. Sorry bout that.

The issue is, as I’ve said, you do NOT get RV GPS navigation in the RV LIFE APP unless you have a PRO sub. Doesn’t make any difference if you’re just an RVTW subscriber.
