Friendly Heads Up - Possible Improvement
If you have imported a route in RS for a future hike before 3:50pm ( 30 minutes ago ) please
1) stop and restart RS
- Android tap the device back key until RS closes
- iPhone double tap the home button then swipe RS up to terminate
2) start RS, delete the imported file then import it again

Just found and fixed a 90 day bug related to waypoints. This isn't anything to get excited about. Only a Possible Improvement for those that use waypoints. If you do nothing it will work the same as the past 90 days and be fine in a week.

It's minor and started mid August when a HAZ server update software. On Android after importing you could scroll the screen up to only white space. That white space is white error codes on a white background, which I ignored like the quarter billion requests for Secret Phx Waterfall hikes that roll in. In a future RS release it'll be black text =)

iOS 4.8.04 has an offline map bug
4.8.05 with a fix has been submitted for review

Did everything I could to get it through the moment I found out... 3h 10m ago
If a new import on 4.8.04 iOS is set to follow it will throw a few errors.
It will still work without offline maps.
