On any screen of the app, select the ? icon and help specific to that area will appear.

*The center switch button on the home screen is what toggles you to come online, or go offline. ON indicates you are online and can be tracked, OFF means you are offline and no one can track you.

Add Someone to Track will let you connect with other people using Chirp.

Connections takes you to a list of your connections to track.

My Location lets you view your current location and set global boundaries.

Settings are app specific settings and additional help.

MAP show your current location on a map, along with speed, altimeter, and directional position.

Panic Alert is an emergency "I need help" alert to people you have selected to receive the alerts in your connections.

  How to track someone
Each person will need Chirp installed and running. Just tap on the persons name in your connections list and tap "Track".
You should now be viewing a map of where that person last sent in thier location. Premium subscribers can use the history slider on th bottom of this scren to view where that person has been as well.
(History view only)Tap any green dot to get the time of the stamp, and their speed at that time.

Your Status
In order to track anyone or allow anyone to see your location you will need to be online with Chirp running. From the main screen tap the on/off toggle and you will become active in the Chirp cloud and begin broadcasting your location to your connections that you allow to see your status. When you are logged in and active the button will begin to animate and turn green. Your location is sent to the Chirp servers every 60 seconds. Just minimize Chirp into the background by tapping the home button on your iphone, or Android.

This is also where you set boundaries, by tapping the screen anywhere you want to set a geo-fence boundary.
When viewing history, the green dots with lines show you where someone has been. Tapping any of those dots will give you that persons speed at that time.
You can toggle satellite view and regular map view in the upper left hand corner of the map.

My Location
This lets you see your current location on a map. You can also see crime and weather information for your location by tapping the i menu option, and you can share you location with anyone by tapping the share menu icon.

This is also where you set global boudaries. Just tap anywhere on the map you want to create a boundary. Global boundaries are different than boundaries you have set for individual people, because anytime anyone you are connected to comes in or out of the boundary - you will be alerted, not just one person. These are good for groups, or just anywhere you want to know if ANYONE has entered or left from.

Viewing a saved pin
This is a map view of where you dropped the pin. You can see where it is on a map view, get turn by turn directions to this location, view crime and weather information here, or share this location with anyone.

Tracking People
To track people go to the main screen and select Connections. Then you'll be presented with a list of people you are connected to. Tapping someone in your list brings up a menu of options.

Setting Boundaries
There are two types of boundaries, global, and individual. You set global boundaries by going to My Location on the main screen, then tapping anywhere on the map you wish to create a global boundary. Anytime anyone in your connections list enters or leaves the global boundary, you will be alerted. Individual boundaries are person-by-person only, meaning when you set an individual boundary, you will get alerted when that person only, enters or leaves that boundary. You can set individual boundaries by going to connections, then select the person you want to track, tap anywhere on the map you wish to set a boundary for them.
