If you miss it its position will reset the next time you turn the app on.

LOL... The first sound that comes to my mind when thinking of McDonald's are those annoying timer beeps on their frying pans... Not a flatliner, but comes close to a heart monitor ;).

It is at the end of my radio interview from 2 years ago.

If you are not routing when you hear the "pop", be sure to check your map, as you may need to detour a bit to get your candy. They may not be on your intended path. If you route to your destination, and follow that route, then the candies should be along your path without need to detour.

Wondered that myself. Any other Mega's with an answer?

I don't pay too much attention to how and why they work, and only recently noticed that they usually seem to hide when I am on an expressway. So I assume they are suppressed when you reach a certain speed.

Lmfao!! Ok I almost made a puddle on the floor reading that.... :-(
The pop is indeed the road sweet popping up, and if you drove over it you'd have heard the congratulations soundbite.

Yeah I'm pretty sure the sweet sound changed. It was the high pitched ding bliiing echo sound but think it changed in 3.5. Can't actually remember what it is now even though I ran over 2 750s yesterday.
It's bugging me now.
