Hi

Is there an instruction manual. I like the look but first thought was to post a negitive review. All looks good but I'm struggling to understand how to do basic GPS functions.

Firstly I thought this was ment to double as a trip navigator so how do I search a street address - go to find, select address, type in address under search (as you would on google maps) but no address found? is this a bug or what.

Waypoints, once i add one by "new" it drops it on the map, how do i then move it so it is reflective of the actual point?

What is the trails feature ment to be/do

how do I drop a pin on the map and how do I delete those pins or move them?

These a basic questions but I cannot work out. Hoping they are bugs cause not impressed so far

How about you have a tutorial or something similar?

    We are going to make a demo video which should be available in a few weeks.

    What address are you looking for? e.g. State, City, Street, No. I'll test it.

    Trails? you mean "trails near me"? feature?

    Demo would be good but a user manual would be more practical

    Yes trails near me, what is it what is it ment to do, how do I operate it. Doesn't make sense, is it ment to be an address search feature

    How do I find any address eg 2 Killarney St Mt hawthorn WA - tried address & near me and neither show address.

    How do I drop pins

    How do I move waypoints

    Thanks

    Trails near ne simply brings up a list of Streets/tracks near you in order. Useful in the bush when you looking for a particular track.

    I checked out that address. It's on the map. To do an address find, go to Home Menu > Find > Address.

    We call a pin a waypoint. Waypoints can only be moved if you edit it's coordinate. Will add the drag waypoint on map feature in future versions.

    Thanks Tom,

    In respect to the address search feature "To do an address find, go to Home
    Menu > Find > Address" if i enter "2 Killarney Street Mt Hawthorn" I get "No
    Address Found". What is not clear and you need to add a "help" feature
    here(!) is that to search you need to enter in following format/sequence
    "State - City - Street - number" ie "Western Australia" - Mount Hawthorn"
    - Killarney St - 2

    What frustrated me is that this was not clear and there was no in app help
    or a link to web page help.

    Another anoying feature is that I had to put "Mount' as opposed to common
    abbreviation "Mt" or would not search - can you fix this.

    By way of pins I'm refering to some how i've tapped the map and a flag
    appears. Try and do that again and didn't work. Try and drag yellow flag
    around map but no joy. Again some reference to this would be useful.

    You mentioned earklier that you were going to do a You tube tutorial. I
    would urge you to refrein from this and write a user guide. Doesn't need to
    be war and peace novel.

    Will test tracks feature this weekend.

    While this app sounds great in theory there is still a lot of work to polish
    it up to justify the $60 hit.

    Thanks for taking time to respond.
