    Does anyone know if I Can bluetooth/link Rv Life GPS to my new 2022 SYNC 4 Ford screen, similar like Waze or Google maps? (I have a Galaxy S9 phone) I do like the Rv navigation that Rv Life GPS offers, I'm also looking into Garmin or maybe both.

    Thank you for your replies
    Mike

    My truck is packed with technology, one example if I adjust the settings correctly the truck will try to drive itself in some situations. Sometimes I wish my truck just had a radio also, lol :p

    My past 07 Tacoma has cruise control, In the 15 yrs I owned it I think I used it just once to see if it works. My new truck has gone into cruise control unexpectedly twice on me. After the second time I think I figured it out which button I accidentally touched on the steering wheel (lots and lots of buttons...)

    Gotta love that cruise control. I use ours on the RV all the time. Love it when nature calls while driving down some wide open road. So easy to just set the speed, push a button, and get up and walk back to the onboard facilities.On open lighter traffic roads I set it to 55 but on the heavier traffic interstates and freeways I will set it at 35 so as to let other drivers get around me..............:D

    Cruse on, Terry.............(aka BankShot

    Forgot to add that I also turn on my flashers when initiating the above procedure. That way other drivers are able to see the coach mo betta, especially when driving at night I always try to be as courteous to other drivers as I can.................:D

    East coast if the freeways are moving most folks go just south of 80 mph, especially middle & left lanes. I generally try to stay 62 to 67 MPH :cool:

    I've been using the app for about 8 months. I purchased this and another RV travel app after getting our fifth wheel, to plot RV safe routes based on clearance, length, width and weight. I've not be impressed with it. On a recent trip I had looked up an RV safe route with no problem but as we were getting started on the trip, we were unable to bring it up again. We received error messages. A travel app that doesn't work well as you travel. Not helpful. Thank goodness the other app worked
