App cut out. We got ahead of some of the tutorial. Couldn’t find a spot to pull over and listen at some locations
Response from Host, Jun 2022
Thanks for the feedback Mike! The stories may cut each other off if driving over the speed limit — could that have been the issue? I’d love to make this right by exchanging this tour for another that works for you — please contact me via the info in my app.
