I'm somewhat annoyed with your app, and thinking of deleting it all together.

A few days after I got the "don't use the app while you are driving" email, I noticed that my app does not load gas stations when I'm in my car. Even if I am stopped, parked and at my destination and think, "Hey, I should report those prices I saw on the way here before I forget them!"

In addition, if my friend is the one driving and I'm in the passenger seat and say, "Hey, let me direct you to the nearest station with the best prices" I'm out of luck. I'm not even the driver, but the app is so worried about distracted driving that a passenger can't even pull it up!

I understand concerns about distracted driving, really, I do.

But if I can't pull up the site from a car that is not in motion, or from the passenger seat, what good is it?

If I have to be at home or work or my friend's house to pull it up, I might as well just use the desktop version and forget the stupid app.

I have to wonder if it is your carrier?

I have an Iphone 6 via ATT and a Samsung Note3 via VZW. I notice more issues with the GPS on the VZW but that phone is older and has been abused. Google maps dont always track properly down the road so I know the problem is with the phone's GPS. 6 months ago the Droid app was way better than the IPhone. The Iphone has caught up

Weird. It was unable to find a Sheetz station too. I'm thinking of upgrading the phone soon anyway so I'm not too worried about it.

The app doesn't try to restrict usage while in the car or moving, so either your copy of the app is corrupted or your data connection is having issues, or something. Try deleting and re-installing the app, and make sure you have a good data signal and good GPS fix.
