Ratings and ReviewsSee All
G’day, awesome app to use and understand. The downfall is the app doesn’t have a back capture facility. I made a long round trip only to find the app didn’t log the return journey. So it automatically logged where I left from and arriving home but no detail in btw. I found the app had not automatically started when I started the car on the return and only realised when I arrived home and went to log it as a work trip. Being unable to edit the detail and add the trip distance in the app meant I’m out approx 250ks for the return journey. So I am more careful now to check the app is running before I leave every location which is a pain if I’m in a hurry. Otherwise the app is great and works well.

Recent update did not fix locations!
The most recent update on the 11th of April 2018 still has not fixed the locations issue. It still does not show correct start and end locations. When this issue will be fixed is anyone guess but for a log book it is essential information which is still not provided with the advertised notes.
For the most part the app works. However there are things that needs fixing, such as locations. All good and well to log distance traveled but not much point if the location never changes. It should show suburb to suburb. This does not work at all. It will sometimes show the same start and Finnish suburb or just show the word destination. For ATO logbook entries this is a must. So no point using it for logbook entries until this is fixed. Even if you could add an edit to the location. At least that way if it picks up the wrong location you can change it to the correct location by typing it in.
Also found a major glitch in the software. When you go into an entry and try to add a tag, the app crashes big time. This needs to be fixed.

Thanks for your review. We have fixed the tag crash issue. Please download the latest version of GOFAR for the fix.
For location, we think your issue may be due to your iPhone location settings. Please go to your iPhone Settings->Privicy->Location Services->And select 'ALWAYS' for GOFAR.
Selecting Always - allows the application to access location information while in the background.
While Using the App - only provides information about location while the app is on the screen.
UI issue on iPhone X
I have had the Gofar device for couple of days and it has been working fine. However there’s a slight UI issue with the app where the top two buttons are overlapping with the time and the signal bar and it’s really hard to press the button.
Other than that, the app has been working well
