How can I get a trip I planned on Trip Wizard onto my cell phone and use the planned trip on Google Maps.

I don't have a standalone GPS nor do I have a Computer, we only have our phones and a 10" Galaxy Tablet running Android 7.

Thanks

You use the RV Life App. Available Free in the app store. Middle tab on the bottom will bring up all of your planned trips.

I create my trip in RV Trip Wizard and then log in to my google account and re-create it making sure I add the same stops using the exact addresses along the route. If Google Maps wants to send me a different way, I drag the route to match RV Trip Wizard. If I still have a hard time and Google maps is stubborn, like near a city bypass or something like that, I zoom in and I create a stop/waypoint so it forces it to take the route I want even though I'm not stopping there. It sounds more complicated and time consuming than it is. Then I send the trip I created with Google maps to my cell phone so I have it for when I'm taking the trip essentially saving it until I no longer want or need it.

Life is a lot like a baseball pitch. Sometimes you get a fast ball down the middle of the plate and sometimes you get a curve ball in the dirt.

Ken, I downloaded and installed the RV Life app. I wasn't aware it integrated with RV Trip Wizard. That's awesome! Does it use Google Maps as it's source mapping? If it does, your information just saved me a bunch of time!

in your settings you can choose between Apple Maps and Google maps if you have an iPhone.
