PORTLAND, Ore., Aug. 3, 2021 /PRNewswire/ -- The Dyrt, the No. 1 camping app in the Apple and Google Play App Stores, is building a nationwide network of cell service coverage information from the campground up. Thousands of The Dyrt users throughout the US have already opened up their phones and helped provide valuable cell service ratings for each major provider at 34,000 locations across the country.
A vast majority of campers want cell service data — from vanlifers who are working remotely on the road to families on a weekend getaway. Because campers report cell coverage information directly to The Dyrt app in real time, The Dyrt's data on campsite connection speeds is more accurate and more up to date than most provider maps.
"We are STOKED on that new cell phone coverage feature," said Mak of the full-time camping duo Bound For Nowhere, "which is huge for us because the map from our cell provider is out of date and unreliable." Campers will now know ahead of time whether they will be able to take phone calls from their RV and stream HD movies, or whether they'll be lucky just to receive a text message.
Cell service data is now visible on all campground listings on The Dyrt's top-ranked iOS, Android and web platforms.
Cell service map layers will soon be available with The Dyrt PRO. The Dyrt PRO currently provides map layers for National Parks, National Forests and Bureau of Land Management land, among other features.
