We drove south from LA. The tour started well, but then the audio didnt start when expected. I'd have to fiddle with my phone to get it going. Can you set it up like Google Maps so the lock screen doesnt come on when its running? Also, is the audio supposed to run for the minute before you arrive at each town or sight? This would be less distracting than listening while trying to navigate thru town with people and bikes and cars pulling out of on street parking. Content was good, very interesting. Separate GPS triggers for northbound and southbound travellers would be an improvement. You could eliminate the 'administrative' content. Looking forward to our next tour!
