I just put it on my tablet. The font is a little chunky on the large screen, I think it's getting scaled up.

It's nice how it gets the coordinates and relays it to the web site.

Thanks John!

Real nice John! Next rev should include the ability to enter your zipcode if you keep your location stuff turned off.

Also, I've been on there for years - can't figure out how to update my email address.. Can you let me know how to do that?

Didn't Steve Jobs invent the Vanagon? You have to PAY to develop on IPhone...

Thank you for this tool.
I was in dc and my van blew a brake line. Joking around I said there has to be an app for that. Went to the Market on my Droid and within a couple of calls was in touch with Alaric. I am amazed at the support of vanagon owners. By the way if you are in the DC area Alaric is the man for your van.

That's a good suggestion Idea . I'll make a mobile form page while my iFriend gets up to speed on iPhone app building. Thanks!
