Use Pothole Radar to mark potholes and share them with the crowd. Together we can have advanced warning of those potholes causing damage to our vehicles.
The app uses your GPS location to find potholes marked by you and others nearby. It then plots them on a radar screen for you to see and gives an audible warning as they approach. When a pothole is less than 50 meters away, you can confirm it is there or mark it as filled.
Potholes have a life of approximately 7 days from the time they marked.
If you 'confirm' a pothole, it will stay on the system for another 7 days.
Marking a pothole as filled will delete it out the system the third time it gets 'filled'.
As a pothole approaches, there is a small beep at 300m, then two large beeps at 60m.
The app only fetches the nearest 10km of potholes. When you have moved 10km 'as the crow flies' the app will request an update for your next 10km.
