When it knows your location the app can display nearby stops and search results sorted according to where you are now. You can also plan journeys to and from your current location.
Internet access is essential if you want to obtain journey and real time information. Knowing your network status means that the app can reduce the number of requests to the RuterReise server. This means lower power consumption and a faster user interface.
We employ Google's APIs so that you can use Google Maps to display map views of journeys, stops and sales outlets. For the temporary storage of map tiles we need access in order to read/write to your mobile's storage capacity.
