Maps and Apps for RV Trip Planning

Whether you’re taking off for a quick weekend getaway, or you live fulltime on the road, there are lots of resources that will make your journey the best it can be. Jim and Chris of Geeks on Tour will break them down for you into 4 steps: Research, Plan, Navigate and Sleep. They will share their favorite maps and apps for each of these categories.
