While RV travel often means going off the grid and trading our everyday technological lives for a breath of fresh air, there’s no denying that smartphones can be extremely handy on those long days on the road. From apps to help us get to our destination to those that help us enjoy the journey, these travel apps are must-haves for your next RV adventure.
Although Google Maps may already be downloaded on your phone, that doesn’t mean you shouldn’t download the GPS CoPilot app too. What’s so great about CoPilot? It’s an offline map program that works when you do decide to travel off the grid to places where cell phone service isn’t available. It’s ideal for travelers with limited data plans, poor cell phone service and those who cross borders in their RVs, and even better, paid upgrades are available to give you live traffic and map updates as well as turn-by-turn navigation in a wide variety of countries.

This app will help you locate any stopping place from luxury RV resorts to parking lots for those late night naps, and the straight-forward, easy-to-find information without any advertisements makes it well worth $9.99.
