An awful app that shows nothing, no campsites just a map of NZ with major roads. Tried on 2 Android phones and exact same result. Utterly useless. Stopping the app and clearing the cache doesn't help. Uninstalling and reinstalling the app makes no difference. Downloading all off line maps doesn't help. Same result on either a Wi-fi or mobile data connection with high speed, low latency and jitter. This app is not fit for purpose. Don't waste your time.

App does not appear to work on Android. Works totally fine on my iPhone. Can see all the campsites, select favorites, etc. but on the Android app there is nothing. Only DOC sites show up and when I save favorites they don't show up under the favorites button. Kind of a shame because I loved this app when I used iPhone but sadly seems useless now

What's happened to the app. I've been using this app since Sept23 and in the last couple of weeks it's not working properly and fails to show freedom and self-contained sites! Has there been a recent update that's caused this?
