Here's a quick rundown of some recommendations for apps to help you on your #vanlife adventure around NZ
In no particular order......
A map-based solution to find all those hidden (and not so hidden) camping spots. Widely used so the info in the app is usually very up-to-date.
Has a very useful filter to help you search for everything from filming locations to public toilets
A ton of contributors means lots of useful reviews
Easy to use
Will notify you if you're close to somewhere that has a special offer
App is monetised so some campgrounds are only visible when you zoom right in
Possibly an overwhelming amount of info and features for the less tech-savvy folk
Yet another map-based app to help you locate freedom camping spots, campsites, toilets and much more. Contains some information that the other 2 above don't.
Easy to use
Allows you download content prior in case you run out of data or have poor signal
Costs $4 on iOS
RANKERS CAMPING NZ
Another map-based solution to finding those hidden gems. Rankers has improved its functionality over the last few updates. And now includes local walks, tours etc
Clean, easy to use interface
Ratings can be seen without having to click into the listing
Includes info on local walks
Not as much user info as Campermate
A fantastic app that allows you to find the cheapest gas/diesel/petrol prices around the country.... a must have....
