"The check is performed only once a day and is very fast.
Any successive launch on the same day won't perform the check.
There is no bandwidth waste.

The check is performed in a separate thread in background.
Application performance is not affected in any way."

I am a new Mac user and this tells me not much. Why not just put "Would you like to check for updates automatically?"

The application itself seems to work well, but I don't really think it's worth $10. I mean, other than finding your location, it doesn't do much - think a bit outside the box and maybe add some new features that you can use the maps in, such as directions for example!

Good Luck!

It is always irksome when some untalented amateur wannabe software developer creates a wonky application that nobody has to BUY as there are free appl's like Google Maps that are FREE and perform better.

Linux is free and PC are almost free to and anything by google is free too. Fortunately we don't live in a freetards world only, or it would be really a poor experience.
Geo WPS offers real time track position. Google doesn't allow for this use , just read the license usage by google. I know that google offers all for free but not all are google fan even if everything from google is free.

IT WORKS PERFECTLY _IF YOU ARE IN A COVERED MAPPED WI-FI AREA_.
We have a lot of paying users, they should not be all stupid.
