[BACK TO FAQ]

What does the message "Bad Reception. Touch here to try again" mean?
This app needs to communicate with our servers in order to serve up maps, locations, directions, and many other features.

If a communications problem occurs while trying to obtain the data from our servers, the green status bar on the page you are viewing will turn red, and the message "Bad Reception. Touch here to try again." will appear.

This problem usually occurs when your smartphone has poor reception with either the WiFi or the Cell towers in your area.

Simply move to an area with better reception and then touch the red status bar. This will cause the app to repeat the request for data that had failed.

How do I find and track my current location?
NOTE: This feature is only available when your WiFi and/or GPS are turned on and you have allowed this app to use your current location on initial startup.

Your current location is represented on the map by a green dot .

If you don't see the green dot on the map, press the button, and then select "Find Me".

Doing so will cause the map view to adjust by panning and zooming so that your location is centered on the screen.

If you already see the green dot on the map, press the button and select "Follow Me". Doing so will cause the map view to adjust by panning and zooming so that your location is centered on the screen.

Selecting either "Find Me" or "Follow Me" causes the map to enter Follow Me Mode. In this mode, the green dot representing your location will remain centered on the screen as the map underneath it adjusts to track your current location. As you move, the map moves.

Any time you touch the map (i.e. to pan or zoom) it will cause the map to enter Explore Mode. In this mode, the map will remain stationary as the green dot representing your location adjusts its position on the map to track your physical location. As you move, the green dot moves.

How do I find nearby AAA Discount Locations?
In most cases, the map will automatically display all discount locations within the viewable area.
The number of locations found will be displayed on the green status bar above the map.

In some cases, the automatic search will not return any locations. This can occur when:
  • There are no locations within the viewable area

  • There are more than 100 locations within the viewable area (too dense)

  • Your zoom level is very high (your view is at the state or country level)

  • A bad reception has occurred

  • You canceled the search by touching the map while a search was in progress
In all of these cases, you can still find AAA Discount Locations by touching the status bar. The app will try the search again and will adjust the viewable area (if necessary) to display 100 or fewer locations.
