I'm having trouble using the built-in functions within the App. I have an iPhone and a Pro adapter. First, how do you access the "shortcuts.?" Pressing the App firmly, takes the phone into the app edit mode. Second, how do you activate location sharing, I don't see a sharing icon anywhere. Is there a map other than the trip map? How do you get the map to show gas stations? Do you have to be moving to get this functionality?

Hi rkihara-

iOS app shortcuts are only supported on iPhone 6S/6S+ and above. App Shortcuts were introduced by Apple with the 6S series as part of their 3D Touch technology (https://developer.apple.com/ios/3d-touch/). So if your phone is older than that, you won't see that feature for any of your apps that have implemented them.

You activate location sharing by tapping the box with the arrow pointing up out of it in the top-right corner of the screen when you're looking at the parked car map or the live trip map. This will be made more obvious in a future app update.

The Gas Station Locator can be found in the main menu which you access by tapping the main menu icon in the top-left corner of the app from any top level app screen. A menu will slide out from the left and you'll see "Nearby Gas Stations". You do not need to be moving to get see that feature. 

I hope that helps!
