    The maps don't include national sea shore areas like Point Reyes NSS

    Only thing that would make it 5 stars if I didn't get an internal error every time when I search trips.

    It keeps jumping track. Had a straight line to like 2 miles away. I had full satellite coverage when i started. So the map and the stats were useless after that. It said we went 6 miles in an hour. We really only went about a mile. Even when it tracks me correctly there are little red sections but nothing saying what the red means.
