RV Trip Wizard

I'm a huge fan of RV Trip Wizard but since the recent update it absolutely HATES Edge ... Support is great and are working closely to assist. It seems to maybe like Chrome better, not my favorite. Primarily it is the drag/Drop function and removing weight points.

What are others using?

Any issues with EDGE/ RVTRIP?

I use it with FireFox without issues. But I am a novice user and still learning. Drag/Drop are above my skill level right now. In fact I wasn't aware they existed. I was a long time fan and user of MS S&T and miss that feature.


P.S. I moved your Post to a new Thread as it didn't fit with the Thread where it was.

We have trip wizard and a hot spot but do not know how to make them work together. Tried to connect going down the road and it would not work. Any suggestions or where we can go to get help. Thank you Jerome & Judy

Our daughter is a website designer. Sometimes a client complains that his or her website does not look very good in Edge. She suggests using a different browser as there are issues with Edge. Most people don’t use it. The only thing Edge is good for is downloading a better browser.

I am trying to set up our trip wizard with our hot spot so it will talk us through the route. I have succeeded in transferring my map from trip wizard to Google Maps. Lost from there. We are trying to work it off of our laptop which will be set up in the truck. How do I get google maps to work (verbal directions) or do I have to install another program like Garmin, Rand McNally, etc. Will this work from my computer or do I have to use a phone app? Totally above my pay grade. Thank you Jerome & Judy

This is not my area of expertise, but your laptop likely doesn't have a GPS. Google maps needs a GPS to determine where you are and then provide the correct directions to get you to your destination.

Years ago I used MS Streets and Trips with a GPS puck on a laptop and it did want you want. But that product is no longer supported.

I am pretty sure that for Google maps to talk to you you need a phone or a tablet. Today's tablets are large enough to be actually easily visible and usable. I periodically use mine rather the the on-board GPS.

I donít think an IPad will work with a GPS MS puck. If that isnít correct someone correct this please.

An iPad has a GPS. I just don't know if Google maps will work on an iPad.

If you have a Trip Wizard Subscription and are planning trips on your laptop you can download the RV Life (PRO) app for free to your phone. Your planned trips will sync to your phone and you can use that for turn by turn and as a gps.

If you need some extra help with this, there is a special forum section set up over at iRV2 just for trip Wizard questions and a lot of seasoned users there who may be able to help: https://www.irv2.com/forums/f287/
