The other issue is when you're driving through the mountains but have no coverage. It doesn't let you even bring UP the mark screen to save the GPS point to mark it later ... because you have no coverage. Kind of self-defeating.

Reporting on an a road condition AFTER passing it.

It would be a great benefit if a driver or passenger could report on an accident, hazard, or police AFTER it has been passed.

Many times the driver and passenger are busy concentrating on the event at hand and don't have time to respond or input information about a situation on the road as it occurs.

It would be great if the system allowed you to input data AFTER a location has been immediately passed (say no more than 1 mile).

This would give more time to input more detail and accurately indicate hazards.

When you hit the report pin button, a little flip notification comes up letting you know "Location and time saved." As long as you leave that menu open, the time and location will pin it to when you tapped the button, not when you send the report.

Alternatively, you can select the type of report, then save the report for later, by hitting the "Later" button or let the report time out. You then get a tab along the left hand side of the screen that you can tap later to add the details of the report.

This even works for closures; as soon as you know a route's closed hit "Report -> Closure -> Later." You can then hit the tab at the next safe location to fill out the details of the closure.

It takes a bit of practice, but once you've got the hang of it you won't have a misplaced pin ever again.
