Waste of Money! I purchased an Explore The World subscription for 1 year. So far, it's been a waste of money! I connect bluetooth on my elliptical and cell phone. Every time I use the app, it never connects properly. And when it looks like it finally does and I select a location to start riding or running, the screen does not move! I don't get to explore anything but a picture on my screen! My advice to you: do not purchase this subscription! Wish I could just get my money back now.

I really wanted to like this app and have it work, I'm even willing to pay for a subscription but . . . . When using the app on any device I own it does not play at a consistent rate, slowing and speeding up disconcertingly, sometimes it stops completely. We have fiber optic for Internet so it can't be slow streaming on our end. It also does not sync with the exercise bike very well, they disagree on almost everything from speed to miles ridden. Please make this app better!

The idea is nice, but what you actually get is extremely limited. It is too expensive beyond the trial. Recorded videos switch from scene to scene instead of just following the route and recordings are often not long enough (causing a loop). Time and other stats aren't accurate plus there are no good ways to share stats with third parties other than Strava (which I don't use). Lastly, I've witnessed various traffic infractions by the camera (like running a red light), which sets a bad example.
