    Great app and more reliable than alternatives. It would be better if it had an easy way to give info on missing or changed locations of markers w ease.

    Not at all user friendly. Please develop a location tracker that shows all the markers in the location. Having to scroll around a map is a buzz kill. I want to know what’s around me. Not search for map locations. Having the ability to see what the history on the marker is, is nice!
  • Love it

    Would be a five star app, if you could hear a narrative as you pass by. Can’t drive and read or can’t always stop.

    Love this app - I used it extensively on a recent road trip. With DH driving, I can search for the number at the bottom of the "marker ahead" signs to see if it's worthy stopping for. I just installed the 11/16 update, and unfortunately the search box is hidden under the top banner and I can't type into it. Pulling the page down just refreshes the data and still doesn't let me type into it. I have an iPhone 5S, iOS 10.3.2. Please fix it before my next road trip and I'll update my review.
