Default Unfortunately, the app is down :-(

Hey everybody,
Unfortunately, the app is down. We aren't sure why but we are going to be working on it.

We really want you to be able to get directions, so we are suggesting you use “The Villages App” for directions. It is free.

We will put a post up as soon as everything is back up and running.

We are so sorry for the inconvenience and really want you to get directions.

Yes, my friend and I have the Villages GPS app and it stopped working two days ago.

It states: The Operation couldn't be completed. Object/Mapper failed to serialize response. Do you have the email for the administrator?

HAHAHAHA -
I’ve been wondering the same thing, when it told me it would take 13 hours to get from Edna’s to Brownwood.

I tried to launch mine this morning and got the following message at startup "java.lang.IllegalException: Expected BEGIN_OBJECT but was STRING at line 1 column 1 path $".

I tried uninstalling and reinstalling the app, clearing cache, and clearing all storage for the app. Same message at startup.

I'm running Android 12 on a Pixel 5a.

Wow. These folks were the first company to fully map the golf cart paths here, and provided an app with turn by turn directions for less money than a paper map would have cost you. The cost to do this mapping had to be tremendous,

They have a minor issue, and the first thing you think of is "can I get my $5 back"?

Not working at all is not a MINOR issue, but you do get what you pay for. I just wish their website had a banner indicating the thing is broken so you don't have to hunt around to find it out. Do they have a list of users emails so they can let us all know? It is a fairly good app that occasionally fails on Android phones.

Default We are Back Again!

We are Back!!!

Long story short… we got HACKED and I mean Bad!!!

Just so you all know… we are just a couple of Villagers that came up with this app in 2013.

To say it has been a struggle….doesn’t even begin to explain the heart ache of what we have gone through.

Now days it’s just a labor of love that we keep it going and hopefully can keep it going.

SO Sorry for the inconvenience and Thank You for your patience.

WE certainly appreciate both your effort to make this app available to begin with, and for keeping it running. VERY much appreciated!!!! You have no idea how much you rely on it until it is not there working perfectly.
