Best iPhone GPS app for RVing?

I have been burned too many times by using the built-in Maps app on the iPhone as well as Google Maps. I am looking for a GPS app that is more dedicated to RVing and respecting our coaches limitations. Too often I find my self on the road less travelled and have often commented that this is not the place to break-down and have to pull over.

I am sure this has been debated before so I do apologize. Searching lead to more of the appliances as opposed to the apps that are available. I do need something for my iDevice as I can put on my phone or mount my iPad for it's large screen.

Thanks in advance.

I use Copilot RV as my primary gps app while driving as it works offline and handles routing well.

I use Allstays for finding campgrounds and planning routes and finding Rest stops and Flying J's while driving. Needs a cell signal.

Google Maps as a secondary reference mainly for satellite and traffic, although Copilot does pretty well with traffic. Needs a cell signal.

I also use radarscope for weather, very useful while driving. Needs a cell signal.

The power of using a real tablet/phone is using multiple apps not just one.

CoPilot here. I have it on my phone as well as a 8" android tablet that is dedicated to being a guidance system in the Motorhome and off-roading in the jeep.
