Tried it for 2 trips, didn't like it. I'll probably use it again if I'm in the NE due to low bridges and propane restrictions, but otherwise it's extremely user unfriendly in my opinion. I've gone back to Waze for navigation and Google Maps for POI/checking out gas stations ahead of time. I do use Rvtripwizard for trip planning so it would have been wonderful if their app was useable as having the auto-import would have been super handy but I just couldn't do it.

I have it on my phone but don't use it. Like afidel said, it's not user friendly. I use RV Trip Wizard to plan my trips and then recreate the exact trip in google maps and text the trip to my phone so I can use it to navigate. If you try this, don't use "My maps" in google. It isn't for navigation but just regular google maps and text it to your phone.

You can't put a porcupine in a barn, set it on fire, and expect to make licorice.

I did some further reading and found a bunch of negative views, mostly bad routing.
I’ll just keep using Siri.
