(Continuous use of GPS may reduce battery life.) -Keep track of marker visits! -Update marker coordinates! (Device with GPS radio required) -Record marker conditions! -Includes conditions of marker where reported. -Includes text for many markers with more being added frequently. -Take new pictures with in-app camera or link to existing pictures from your Photo Library!

  • History

    I love history. Reading markers help the long trips go by faster.
  • Finally!!! The historical marker app I’ve been looking for

    By Unblockinator
    Whenever on a road trip through Texas I always see the Historical Marker signs. Now I can look them up by the code on the sign and find out what happened in that area.
  • What I needed

    By Truck Wheels Guy
    I had been looking for an app like this for a long time. Glad I found it.

    Drive by site seeing of historical markers, so cool.
  • The best way to find markers in Texas!

    By Jsmooveco
    We use the app while traveling around the state and this makes the hunt much easier. Any excuse to get out on the road and see more of the state. Bravo, this is a wonderful tool.
  • Needs improvement

    By Ricki9381
    Not at all user friendly. Please develop a location tracker that shows all the markers in the location. Having to scroll around a map is a buzz kill. I want to know what’s around me. Not search for map locations. Having the ability to see what the history on the marker is, is nice!
  • Love it

    A bit slow at times but overall I love this app.
  • Nice app

    By Spaceone2011
    Would be a five star app, if you could hear a narrative as you pass by. Can’t drive and read or can’t always stop.
  • Can't get to search box

    By AnotherSusan
    Love this app - I used it extensively on a recent road trip. With DH driving, I can search for the number at the bottom of the "marker ahead" signs to see if it's worthy stopping for. I just installed the 11/16 update, and unfortunately the search box is hidden under the top banner and I can't type into it. Pulling the page down just refreshes the data and still doesn't let me type into it. I have an iPhone 5S, iOS 10.3.2. Please fix it before my next road trip and I'll update my review.
