Any RV Parky RVPARKY users on?

I'm trying to plan our Florida trip using RVParky. Great program - and free. But I'm having difficulties... When I use RVParky on my laptop, it's easy to see and I can print the route. However, as I drag the screen to move the map, it doesn't populate the points of interest. I have to find a city along the way then search for that city. Only then will POIs populate around that city. Then dragging the screen to go further and nothing populates. Frustrating...


When I use it on the iPad, dragging along populates the POIs along the way. But I can't print from the iPad (app doesn't give the option).


I sent them a message to their FB page but they haven't posted since 2014.



Any RVParky experts out there?

I've got it on my phone...

But only have figured out enough of it to be dangerous to myself.

Good luck!

...this reminds me of Google Maps and how it's 'different' on the iPhone versus the Laptop/Desktop version.
You can easily change or customize a route on the Laptop, moving the route to a different road or travel lane that might make more sense for your type of travel, less turns, a road more familiar, etc., versus the typical 'shortest route possible' scenario that is normally rendered.
But, on the iPhone, you can't. You are basically stuck with whatever choice of route, or routes, that it gives you, but no way to 'customize' the route.... frustrating.

And, even MORE frustrating, when you find the optimum route, customized, on your Laptop, and you use the 'SHARE' feature to either text or email it to your iPhone, thinking you've 'licked' the system, the rendering on your iPhone STILL defaults back to the 'normal' Google routes - your customized route disappears. UUUGGGHHHH!!!

I love RvParky & am sorry they aren't doing anymore updates. Eventually I'll have to learn that new rv program that everyone raves about but costs real money. & Y'all know how "comfortable" I am with learning any kind of new tech, lol! For now, RvParky gets me where I'm going...

Has anyone tried the RV Life app for trip planning? The promo sounds promising.

Just checking to see if anyone has had any contact with the RVPARKY owners... I love the app but want to add RV parks that aren’t listed.

I've used RV Trip Wizard for a couple of years now and it's been merged into RV Life it has been very useful so I'd guess it should be improved (I hope they haven't screwed it up)

I read on another forum that RV Trip Wizard no longer update hazards such as bridge clearances. I plan to verify this in the near future and if so I will cancel my subscription.
