Just be aware there is very limited to NO cell reception inside the park. Also limited to no reception in most of the BB area. Just assuming the app needs cell phone reception to work.
Actually, no, the app does not need cell service (or WiFi) to work. Just your gps signal. It's pretty nifty!
BillandKathy, about US-285... I'm currently returning to BBNP from Carlsbad Caverns. (Took my college kids there before they head back to college later this week.) Two things. One, there was a bit of stand-still construction as you cross into NM. Frustrating, to say the least. Second, today I got a cracked windshield just south of Orla, from one of the oil fields trucks. I'd estimate 90% of the traffic on that route is semitrucks from the oil field. If you can find a way to avoid 285, I would, if I were you. (Edited to add: Is there an alternative route??? I'm not sure there is!)
