Built a virtual Galaxy Note 2 - with a bigger screen. Brought it all up to date and installed latest GasBuddy. No car or stripes to be seen. Looked at screens in both portrait and landscape. No joy.

Nope, not there. I'll create a larger-screen Note on my Android VM and see if it shows up there.

Hello Sneakers55...hope the new place is still treating you well. I do not see a car or stripes in my profile on the phone. Where do you see it? I'm Android/Samsung Galaxy S

Thanks. Looked like a perfect email response format with the date & response header so I thought it was a special function or macro. ??

How do you do the message quoting like you replied to me in the Blood Donations forum? Did you format by hand or have a browser tool? I like it!

Agreed, you didn't say as much; you just implied it. "What? The smartphone interface? On the contrary, you have to be close to the station for the price to be accepted thanks to their use of GPS to validate the price postings." The gps really doesn't validate the prices, just the location, and I know you know that. You might check the web site again; it does indeed do range checks on the prices. I'd even go so far as to guess that they were there even before the mobile apps were completed.

Sneakers55: You seem to have ignored the fact that when prices are entered via the web interface, the option (and obligation) is there to enter an accurate time for your observations, and newer data will persist over older data, as it should. Old data is better than no data at all. I personally don't see that appealing to competitiveness and gamesmanship has made any contribution whatsoever to the quality of the website or to the data. As far as accuracy due to the gps, forget it. I personally know of an instance in my area last week of a price wrongly posted as midgrade that was the price on the sign for diesel. The gps would not have caught that, as the poster evidently drove by, read the sign carelessly, and posted for the wrong fuel. btw, I don't often post comments in forums, but I felt strongly enough about this to do so with this comment. This was also posted on the Show Me the Points forum. I figured it took enough of my time to be worth the points.
