Ratings and Reviews
Still has bugs
I have been using the JDM-Wombat configuration since release. Partial updates of the supplemental databases are still spotty. Need to delete the database history and do fresh downloads.
This bug has persisted and is a total deal killer when WiFi is not available.
I have talked to support but the software is not fixed.
In this day and age. One-star.
With Family Sharing set up, up to six family members can use this app.
