- The Network-Permission is only needed for the coupon system, Google Ads and the internal map (We do not transfer anything else! We do not collect any personal data like other apps do!)

This app has always been a free of charge app and will continue to be so. To finance the development we decided to show a few ads in the app. If you do not like the advertising, you can remove the ads completely by donating 0.99€ or 1.21$ (US-Dollar). (An explanation on how to donate can be found in the app)
=== NOTICE ===
GPS does NOT work everywhere! If you are unsure whether the app is trying to find your position, look at the bottom of your screen. If the message reads "Aquiring GPS Location..." then give it a few seconds to find your location. GPS does not work everywhere! If there is an obstruction between you and the sky, there is no guarantee for a GPS signal!
Navigator directions are given from the app by using Google's map compass. It estimates which direction is north and is NOT exact. It is not advised to use the navigator directions while in a moving vehicle. Tap on your car and choose "Get directions" in that situation (which launches a separate app designed for it).
