CoPilot is our nav on tablet choice since the demise of SA. I still trip plan on the old SA on computer, but nav trip legs on CoP. Runs off of sat gps, no data used unless you use traffic update options.

Hmmm with new Visible account guess I will try traffic watch when leaving the Keys tomorrow.

I loved Streets and MapPoint (a commercial version). I now use Microsoft Maps (standard in Windows 10) to plan trips. Easy to enter GPS coordinates and find places. When on line, it has an aerial view similar to Google Maps. When off line and, if you have saved the maps, it will only show road view but will function the same as on line. From there I transfer places using coordinates or addresses to my GPS and let it do the final plotting.

Here's an example from our recent trip.

I've been using https://roadtrippers.com/ to plan my trips. It used to be totally free but now is limited on the number stops for the free version. I love all the quirky points of interest that it has. You can plan on your computer then the phone app will use the map system on your phone if you want to navigate from the app.

What am I missing here? While not a big fan of Google, I find Google Maps to be way better for route planning than anything else out there. Admittedly it's not RV specific, but it works, and works well.

For several years now Google Maps has allowed map areas to be downloaded ahead of time, so it works without an internet connection.

With Allstays and Google Maps I'm good to go.

If you didn't know you could download Google Maps, here's how. Bring up the menu (three bars, upper right on my device) and look for "Offline areas". It's pretty straight forward after that, just pan and zoom to select an area. You won't be able to select even as much as an entire state, but you can download multiple maps.

You don't have to download anything if you set and start a route with an internet connection. The portions of the map needed for the route are automatically downloaded, so you can loose a connection later and still navigate.

I don't know about all these others but we loved Street Atlas. We could see excellent detail since we did secondary and back roads. We could follow our route as we were driving because it used GPS not the internet. It showed so much, especially elevation as we were driving. We could fine tune our route offline; no internet needed. Even though it's no longer available we continue to use the last version successfully. Roads rarely change.
