Frequently Asked Questions / Troubleshooting

Where does this app work?

Since there is no WiFi connection necessary, this app works whereever you can receive radio signals.

Do I need to install Radar Spotter and Avare?

No. Both are optional but supported. Use Radar Spotter to watch your own live data and Avare for navigation as usual. (The Avare app currently supports USA and Canada only.)

Do I need to "root" the Android device for this app?

No, but you should have a receiver.
