    I spoke too soon. Opened up the app again, and it's reverted to the old (incorrect) elements. I will send the details to the developers directly so they can check it.

    And Paul, feel free to stop by in Saskatoon on your way to the Rally Although we are heading down there ourselves so may just cross paths in Great Falls.

    Hey all - yes, we're following this thread and collecting feedback from anybody who sends it - appfeedback@bmwmoa.org is the best address to use, and a real person - ME - reads every email send to that address.

    I'm aware of a few issues and collecting the info so we can improve the app on the next update. There are a few clubs left out - likely due to when they paid their dues and not any larger conspiracy (you know how Facebook gets lol). The app does not pull real-time updates, it only knows what we tell it, so any mistakes in the app are in there because we fed it incorrect data for some reason.

    For instance, none of the Ontario dealerships are showing up because at some point 'Ontario' got switched to 'Ontaria' in the data file. I'll take the blame for that one since I organized the dealer data. In my defense (sorry, defence for y'all Canadians), THOSE LETTERS ARE TINY IN MY SPREADSHEET This will of course be fixed in the next update.

    I'll be working on figuring out why the membership database isn't saving changes for some members - that's an issue that doesn't have anything to do with the app, though the data does appear wrong in the app. We'll get that figured out ASAP.

    I've also received some really thoughtful suggestions for future functionality in the app - much of which is unfortunately out of the budget right now, but I'm creating a wish list for the future, and when we're able to incorporate the ideas, we will do that!

    I recently joined and was trying to join in time to get listed in the Anonymous. I'm happy to report, my info is in there and correct. I'm also the only member from my "city." So it was easy to pick out my info.

    On my Android phone it will locate the state I'm in and it will then give me an alphabetical list by city. Right now I'm in Alabama which is a relatively big state. I could be 500 miles from some of the listings. Not much better than looking in the printed publication in my opinion. It is suppose to show me the closest person?

    Only one MOA member in Nenana? I would have thought Nenana would be awash in a sea of members.

    I downloaded this and think a map with links would be valuable. Looked up a friend who lives 5 miles from a major USA capital city, but since he was listed under the name of his smaller town, a traveler would be unaware he exists. A map would alleviate that problem.

    Which is why there is always a map in my tank bag and an atlas in the top box.

    I carry the National Geographic road atlas. Need cheaters to read the maps, keep those in a pocket of the soft top case as well. I bought it as it has campgrounds listed as well.

    The following steps is how I'm using the app. Let me know if I'm doing anything wrong.

    I open the app and it shows Iowa.

    Tap Iowa, then tap Use Current Location

    Tap Ok

    Tap BMW MOA Anonymous

    This gets me a alphabetical list of towns in Iowa. It does not show a list based on distance from me.

    Next I try filter by codes and select a few codes, then tap Search Anonymous.

    This give me a list but it's not in order by distance from me or does it show members not far from me in Missouri.

    In the future will the app show all results based on distance from my current location?

    Different data protection laws may lead to some development issues. Canadian data protection laws are far more stringent than US laws.

    The company I work for has to maintain data centers in Canada and the US in order to comply with data protection and hosting laws in either jurisdiction. Provision of personalized Canadian membership data through US data centers may be difficult or impossible to do, depending on what Canadian laws are.

    Bingo! This is the most-needed improvement as far as I’m concerned. The only additional thing I’d like to see is to trap for location being on or off, so if you do not have location enabled for the app you get the full alphabetical list, with location enabled you get a list sorted by distance from present location. “Sort by location” could otherwise cause issues for those who do not want to enable location in the app.

    Some have reported issues with location not working, but the latest version seems to be working fine on my iPhone and iPad and is a great resource.

    Best,

    When it does that, I'll load it onto my phone. In the meantime, I'll use the book.

    Would it not be the case that Canadian membership data is already present and being maintained in the US and all that the app does is permit access?

    In any event at the moment Canadian member and club data now works in the app but the dealership data access is awaiting a spelling error fix.
