    On my iPhone X it finds my location as being Helena, Montana, but then lists every local in the state alphabetically.

    This looks like a promising App that I would love to use.

    Unfortunately for anyone outside the USA, one cannot proceed into the App because the only manual way to do so is to pick a State or recognized military location listed on the State menu.

    Finding the root cause for 'location not found' should be the next step for the developers. It appears this issue exists on on (some) iOS and Android devices so the problem does not appear to be device or OS specific.

    Seriously, we as a group could help the developers test revisions and likely speed up the resolution process without drama. This is how beta Apps are tested IRL.

    Meanwhile everyone should rate the App and place comments on the App store for your device/OS - this is where the developers look for feedback.

    Done.

    I'm guessing it won't take long to work out the bugs.

    I downloaded the app on my iPhone last night and enabled it to use my location. It immediately told me my local town and showed my number (Iím the only one listed here).

    Today, I was showing it to a friend and it showed my location as same but made me cycle thru all the towns in the state to actually access my town.

    I noticed in the app store there is a email address for the developer so I emailed him and explained the location function did not work on my devices.
    I also gave him a link to this thread so he can check it out as he works on bugs.

    I have been contacted by an App developer for this App. They will be making Beta Versions of the App available to me so that I can help test. This is done through the use of another App (TestFlight). Looking forward to doing this for sure.

    Thanks everybody - we've identified a few bugs & hiccups and hope to have an update out ASAP. All Canadian info will be included in the first update! Dealer and chartered club info will be updated as well.

    You can contact me with feedback as well, either PMs through the forum or via email, appfeedback at BMW MOA . org.

    As a fan of SpaceX and Tesla and the way they design and develop I have no issues of the their 'fail fast and update' methodology that has sped up iterations and final quality of products. It also puts the customer inside the develop and test loop sooner which I very much appreciate.

    We will end up with a fully functional Anonymous App sooner which helps engage our members since it will be there working and useful.

    No "current location" using Android Samsung S7 after installing APP and enabling access to location info during install/setup.
