I do not use either, but the only reason I can think of where it would be a problem from a gedcom from RM 5 is if the marriage fact was not checked to export to gedcom at Lists, Fact type list.
Just checked, and it is checked for Gedcom. Any other thoughts would be appreciated!

Thank you! I was looking under events and saw birth and death and couldn't figure out why marriage wasn't there. I haven't used GedView in a while.
Look under the Family heading for the person. The Husband or Wife label should show "m. Date in Place".

Another RM feature supported is what it exports in the GEDCOM custom _PLAC tag. The latest upgrade now properly handles geographical coordinates. And it ties in with iOS mapping.
GedView is not just a GEDCOM reader as might be inferred from its name; you can also edit, including adding and deleting persons, facts, images, video, audio. It is pretty weak as a GUI, very much a text app, but, I dare say, probably quite usable on iPhone and iPod. That said, it is more powerful than the free RootsMagic Reader promised for Christmas.
I have not made much use of GedView in the past and may not in the future but I can see how one might use it in conjunction with RM. RM's the Master, export full or selective GEDCOM according to one's field research interests, download to GedView for the field work, send its revised GEDCOM to a new RM database for review, cleanup and subsequent transfer to Master.
