Never received activation email. Side note did not realize it was st. Louis to Springfield thought it was only in the city. Re read description when trying to figure out how to do the tour.

OK, but when a road split, (not obvious which to take), the recording: “It appears you are lost.”, w/ no help, is a little irritating.
