The FOD*BOSS is a tool designed to collect dangerous debris from airport tarmacs, and the Tracker App ensures that all areas are swept.
As the operator of the FOD*BOSS on a commercial or military runway, simply open the App and then start the sweep. The App will automatically begin to track the co-ordinates of the sweep overlaid to an aerial image.
Once tracking is complete, simply add the amount of debris collected and the App will provide statistics to you.
Warning - Continued use of GPS running in the background can dramatically decrease battery life.
Thanks for using FOD*BOSS! To make our app better for you, we bring updates to the App Store regularly.
Every update of our FOD*BOSS app includes improvements for speed and reliability.
Ratings and Reviews
I don’t like this version.
Let me start by saying the FODboss itself works wonderfully. It picks up practically anything you run it over; from the tiniest screws, to flat washers.
This app on the other hand has always been just a tad buggy. I’ve always used previous versions to track our airfield sweeping, and it always worked pretty well.
However, I had to install the update for the current version before I started today’s airfield sweep. It worked well until about 1 1/2 hours in, when it suddenly went back to the start screen and lost all of my progress up to that point. I started a new track and continued sweeping. It kept track of my progress until I was finished, but when I tried to save the record the app worked at it for a while and ended up going back to the map screen without saving any information. I attempted to save it several times, and got nowhere. No data was saved aside from the screenshot I had to take.
Needless to say, I was somewhat frustrated.

Needs a long needed update
Maps do not load at all. Should be able to log in with multiple users under one account, because why should one Airfield have several log ons??? And possibly have an iPad version so you can use a bigger map in your vehicle when sweeping. Trying to look at a small iPhone screen at times while driving on an Airfield can be dangerous.
I've used this app in conjunction with the product and they work very well together. My reasons for only giving it 4 stars were for not being able to change the time zone and the compatibility with changing from Metric to Imperial measurements and the online Debris Calculator is almost there, but not quite. Those are my only complaints.
The GPS mapping is outstanding and my boss loves the visual. Tracking your improvement by weighing the FOD is also a great perk.
