Ever wonder exactly where your favorite US radio station's tower is located? Been driving across country and want to know where to find NPR or Rush Limbaugh? RadioMap will tell you!
Ideal for long-haul truckers, road trippers, vacationers, or anyone driving through more than one radio station's service area, RadioMap provides a quick and easy way to find out about radio stations in your local area.
Look up stations by US state and city, or show them on a map along with your current location (with compatible devices). Relative signal strength is shown for each station as well so you can plan your trip and not miss a thing. In addition, station telephone numbers and websites are included - call directly from the app on an iPhone!
You can filter the display by a specific state, or to stations nationwide that are playing a nationally syndicated show (currently station lists for NPR, The Rush Limbaugh Show, The Sean Hannity Show, The Glenn Beck Program, the Tom Sullivan Show, Coast to Coast AM, and Imus in the Morning are included. Contact us to add your favorite show.). You can also filter out stations with formats you don't care about (i.e., no "Country" stations).
Within any filter, search the stations by callsign, frequency, or city name.
RadioMap contains the entire FCC database of radio station towers in the US (excluding low-power stations and translators) as well as border stations near the Canadian and Mexican borders -- no need for an internet connection to look up stations. (Of course, the map display will only show cached information when not connected to a network).
RadioMap is fully compatible with the iPad, and iOS 4 is recommended for all functionality.
RadioMap is only as good as its database, and radio stations are constantly changing. If you find a mistake in our database, please let us know using the app - we'll get it fixed for the next version!
NOTE: RadioMap *DOES NOT* stream any station or show. RadioMap is only a station lookup service and database.
What's New in Version 1.2.1
Critical bug fix to the just-released version 1.2.0. Fixes the following two problems:
1. Crash upon startup on some devices
2. Database not updating until app is re-installed.
The original release notes for Version 1.2.0:
- Several user-submitted updates to the database
- Fix bug that caused 2300+ stations to not appear (these stations now show up with an "Unknown" format... if you know, pelase submit an error report and tell us!)
- Fix crash when changing filter while searching the current table
A reminder: The table search field can be used to search for station callsign, frequency, or city
Have installed this twice now. Each time it asks to use my current location, and each time I agree. When it opens, it shows stations in Kansas, and I live 50 miles N of NYC. And there's no way to change the current location.
I don't see any translators and newer stations are missing. Would also be nice to show stations near my location without having to select a state.
I tried to use this to locate local NPR stations but found it totally useless since this list is incomplete. It does look very useful for the right-wingers though since it allows for filtering the search for Beck, Hannity and Limbaugh.
