Need a tracker at the end
I will continue to be annoyed by not having a tracker at the end of the parades downtown. The tracker is great, but if the parade broke down or the tracker has passed, then this whole thing is useless. Buy a few of this GPS Tiles and stick it on the back of the fire trucks instead of using another tracker car. Let’s complain to the competition to see who can provide this feature first 🙄
Almost missed my wife riding with Pandora because this app had them way behind where they actually were. Luckily I used 4WWL’s app and saw where they were really at which was nowhere near where this worthless app had them. After they passed I got back in the car and checked out of curiosity to see where it had them it still had them way back near causeway when they had already passed cleary.
The app doesn't include parades that follow others, like Elks-Orleans and Crescent City on Mardi Gras day. These parades have different routes from Rex, so it would be nice to at least have a map of the route even if you aren't going to track it. Think of the poor tourists who don't know these parades exist, and rely on this app to let them know what's going on.
With Family Sharing set up, up to six family members can use this app.
