when the app asks to track your location so that the GPS triggered audio feature will work. If you do not press 'Allow' the app will not be able to track your location and the GPS triggers will not work.
Continued use of GPS running in the background can dramatically decrease battery life.

Very clunky interface, horrid narration that is simultaneously boring, incomplete and shallow. GPS interface hardly usable.
Developer Response ,
The GPS tour app narrations are designed to be factual, brief and concise. Tour site narrations are played at each tour site location and must be timed according to the GPS points for each tour site. With over 60 DC tour sites on the app and the close proximity of most DC tour sites, the tour site narrations must be brief and concise to avoid run overs. GPS map is designed for you to explore the points of interest or get directions.
Didn’t know there was so much info on all the places in DC. The background historical made the stops come alive. We learned a lot. Thanks!
Awesome narration and great insight into the wonderful city of The District of Columbia.
