Thread: BMW MOA Anonymous book in app form

  1. #1

    BMW MOA Anonymous book in app form

    Anyone aware of this app of the anonymous book? Takes up 25M on the phone, wondering if it's ready for prime time or should one wait awhile to see if it's all that and a slice of bread relative ease of use, accuracy, etc

    Probably have to update the app every year but that's expected to stay current

    It's ready for prime time, finally... after over 10 years of trying.

    Just tried it and can't get it to search by my location.
    I was hoping when I'm on a trip I could locate members near me.

    It will detect your location if you let it. Then it will show what is near you. You can click on the state and enter a city if you want to change it.

    Tried it on my phone and tablet, the location function does not work for me.
    When I tap Use Current Location I get a message, Your current state is not in our database yet. Please select the state from the list.

    It works if I select a state from the list but the cities are listed in alphabetical order, not by distance from me.

    It works like a charm for me on both my iPhone XR and iPad running the most current iOS

    What are the folks having trouble running?

    Can't find my location in Canada

    App stalls on the first screen looking for my location. I am just north of the Canada / USA border. The only other way is to tell the App my location by picking my State. We don't have states. If the App developers are following this thread I am willing to work with them to test the App once they write code for it to look for the GPS coordinates outside the the USA since the App is currently useless here.



    Edit: Running iOS 13.3 on iPhone X
