What is a good RV navigation iOS app? MUST take into account: length, height, weight, and propane. PREFER take into account traffic and work offline (except for traffic.) Suggestions?

Google Maps is still the best with WAZE in 2nd place. YOU should match your travels based on length, height, weight and propane manually to ensure you have a safe trip. There is NO SOFTWARE that is 100% and if you don't plan your trip you are bound to end up with an unplanned issue.

If you want all those features you will more than likely need an RV GPS. Don't think you will find it in an app. If you do please post what it is.

We've been happy running the CoPilot RV app on an iPad Mini for the past 2-3 years. It has full offline maps and takes into account RV dimensions. It allows for routes with multiple stops and/or routing vias. I use Google Maps satellite and street views when route planning in unfamiliar ares. We will sometimes use Waze to check traffic while driving in heavily populated areas. Like any GPS based navgation, a healthy amount of common sense is also needed.

CoPilot RV is the app your looking for.

Smart Truck Route is a good app that allows weight, height etc to be added.
