Troubleshooting

I have used the app in the past but now I can’t find this year’s update in my device’s app store.

This year’s app is a totally new, more advanced, leap in technology and is not in the app stores. Follow the directions above to install directly on your device using your web browser.

The app is not showing my location on the map.

Delete the app and reinstall, this time making sure that you “Allow” the app to use your current location. You must be already allowing Safari (iOS) or Chrome (Android) to use your current location to initially receive this prompt.

Protecting your privacy is important to us. Your current location information is only used for the maps portion of the app to help you navigate the fairgrounds in live-time. All other features of the app will continue to work, even if you opt out of sharing your location.
