I use this app on two different SAR teams ( in Oregon state and Washington state). This app has always been great, but I have a problem with the chat feature. Lately it seems as though the text size has shrunken to like a size 4 or 5 font… it’s very hard to read especially if you’re enroute and don’t want to miss updates from your team mates. The other thing is that if you switch to your map then switch back to access the chat, you have to go through the whole process of reopening the chat string instead of it staying open. To make things safer for us that use the app, please allow us to adjust the font size within the app (or make it bigger again) and keep the chat window open when we switch out off the app.
Could be 5 stars
The app does part of what it should do... I would give it 5 stars if the mapping system actually worked. For example, when clicking on the google maps button the app uses what I’m assuming to be gps coordinates vs the actual address. Maybe times the gps coordinates are wrong. And because they are gps coordinates it is impossible to verify that you are going to the correct address because you’re comparing numbers vs the actual address text. The other issues when using gps coordinates is when you arriving at the location. If I’m driving and I want to confirm the house number via the google map app I can’t because it shows that you have arrived at the gps location vs saying you have arrived at t 123 Main St for example. Another issue is you can not copy text from the dispatch information and then paste that into google maps, the app doesn’t allow you to copy information from the app to put into other apps like google maps, Apple Maps, or any other app. This makes verifying the address extremely hard and annoying. If they mapping issues aren’t their fault they should allow people to be able to copy and paste the information so you can easily google the address and verify the information is correct.

Very awesome with one personal preference change.
Very useful it’s been great to use active 911 on my volunteer dept. cause our dept is very out dated due to funding issues and we do not have MDTs or CADs in our trucks so we rely heavily on this for finding our way to calls and I must say 95% it’s on the mark a few times it’s not but that’s not the app it’s google maps or Apple Maps that is messed up. Only suggestion I wish to see which is only a personal preference is ability to add in your created tone by your self. I made my depts Fire tone and have a file downloaded and would love to use it personally cause I’m used to hearing it from my radio for dispatch. I’m more accustomed to it and rather use it personally. But that’s not and wrong with the app just would like it as personal preference of mine app is amazing and also the family sms for my family to know when I have a call is nice.
