    Due to the high cost, we do not have an app available in the App Store.
    However, we do have an app available using PWA technology.
    It looks and works like a full app. Except it is installed on the home screen rather than in the App Library. However, it can be searched for in the App Library. The load time is much quicker than the website and it has some offline functionallity.

  • Allow location when prompted.
  • Wait until the map is fully loaded and has zoomed into your current location.
  • Click the Share up-arrow at the bottom of the screen, and select Add to Home Screen
  • Use the icon created to open the map as an app
  • The app will automatically update
  • Note The map can be installed on macOS from any browser except Safari. On iOS 16.3 and earlier, the map can only be installed with Safari. On iOS 16.4 and later, the map can be installed from the Share menu in Safari, Chrome, Edge, Firefox, and Orion.
