~~~ Here’s what our users have to say about Glympse! ~~~
5 Stars - “This app is awesome... I use it to show people where I am, my eta, to coordinate several people meeting at the same place coming from different directions... It gives people peace of mind, and the option to see it in a web browser is awesome for those who don't yet have the app. Also, it's nice that you can set the Glympse to expire upon arrival for saved battery life.” – Bradley Dunham via iTunes
5 Stars - "Thanks u guys!!! This is so awesome! Now when my parents want to know where I am I just send them a Glympse!!! Thnx!" -via Glympse support
5 Stars - "Absolutely LOVE this app! I take the bus home from work and my husband picks me up at the bus stop. I send a Glympse when I get on the bus and he can track the location. We also use it when we are running 5k, 10k and half marathon races. It works fabulously!" -via Glympse support

What's New in Version 3.12
* Following a Glympse link launches directly into Glympse app (IOS 9 and newer)
* Update for Ford Sync
* Minor enhancements and bug fixes
I have been using Waze for several years and love it for navigation!! I got a new Ford F-150 and Glympse is the only navigation app that works with Sync3 so I downloaded it to use it. Once my iPhone is connected to my truck i can't input anything so that all has to be done BEFORE I connect it to the usb. Not even on the sync3 screen can I input an address to drive to. Now I can't even put a destination in the app? I don't want to pay for a navigation chip and thought this would work but only if I add a destination as a favorite? That is ridiculous!! I did like hat the map shows on my sync3 screen, but if I already know where I'm going do I need that?? While using it today it froze up when I switched from audio back to mobile apps. Glympse no longer appeared. Now this could be a Sync3 issue and not Glympse but I've never had a more frustrating 20 minute drive taking the kids to school. Please fix this so I can actually use this.
More reliable than Waze...
Works better and updates more consistently than Waze, and works better than Waze since it shows you in real time the location of driver.
Use this app almost every day
This app is a lifesaver. I use this app almost every day to let my family know when I'm gonna be home from work. Or if I am trying to meet up with friends in the city. Works like a charm.
