I use the Map View in the Android GasBuddy App all the time - it is a wonderful tool. I also use the Google Map App to view traffic using the Traffic Layer. We do a lot of long-distance driving and as the passenger, I report gas prices and monitor the traffic. Currently I have to keep on swopping between the apps. Is it possible to add an option to show the Traffic layer on the GasBuddy App Map View? It would be a great enhancement to be able to see everything in one place. Thanks!

I use the map view frequently, but not all the time

While you are at it, move the new ad from the bottom to the top of the map. Whenever, I try to zoom the map in or out using the + or - , I accidentally hit the ad and instead of zooming, it opens my browser. That wasn't listed as a change on the latest upgrade or I wouldn't have.

This is something that the Android app developers have planned for a future build, so you may very well be in luck with seeing this in the future.

Good idea 2dancing. While I don't monitor traffic like you do, it would be nice to have "one stop shopping" like this.
