Default The Villages GPS… This is new???

Why does a smartphone app which cost $4.99 have its own section on TOTV? In my opinion, this is uncalled. This is ridiculous.

How is this a problem? They are a paying sponsor and Admin can put them anywhere he chooses.

We were asked to help get the word out regarding a new product that appears to be beneficial to residents of The Villages and has had positive feedback from the TOTV team who are mostly Village residents as well.

We apologize if this has caused you an inconvenience but our intentions were simply to raise awareness of a product that could be useful. Since the users on TOTV are obviously internet savvy and inclined to use technology we hope many will find this interesting and useful and what better place to introduce a technology product than the largest website in The Villages.

Best Regards

And some of us appreciate the chance to learn about something that might benefit us - seems to me to be the raison d'ętre for TOTV!

Finally! We've said many times that if someone would develop this, they'd make a million bucks!

I don't even know what you are all talking about. The OP didn't name it and everyone else apparently knows except me.

"The Villages GPS app" for your iPhone. I don't know if they have it for other smartphones yet.
