I just ran across RM RV GPS for iPad. Has anyone used this app? Does it mimic the RM 7710 or 7720 GPS? It is pricey for an iPad app at 99.99 and cautions battery depletion is very rapid.

I have been wondering the same thing.  I have looked at the RM7720 and the Ipad app would be cheaper if it worked as well.

I have been using this app on my iPad since it came out. So far, I like the functionality. The only downside so far is I found that it does not contain every campground in the database. However, that does not prevent me from entering an address or lat/long. I also have other apps that help me look up campgrounds (see below).

The only problem I have found so far is not all rest stops show up when you look for them on your route.

When you first install the app, make sure you are on a WiFi network as you will have to download a lot of data.

I also have the Navigon app to use as a backup, which is what I used to use.

As with any GPS apps you use with your iPad, your will want to plug in a power cord while you are heading down the road.

Along with the Rand McNally app, I use for the following apps for trip planning:

1) Allstays Camp & RV
2) Allstays Truck & Travel
3) iExit

For mounting the iPad, I use a combination of hardware from ProClip and RamMount. The iPad Mini also provides a smaller footprint than the full size iPad.
