Accessibility Comments: 

Seems mostly accessible. The only thing that a person should be aware of is the first button, which is called "Left Button, Button." This button lets an individual browse the various categories of places such as gas stations, rest areas, and so on. In addition, when a person clicks on this button, he or she could browse the various interstates when off the freeway, allowing an individual to plan their trip. When the individual is on the highway, all they have to do is launch the app and it will track where he or she is going. To get more info on an exit, all a person has to do is dubble tap on that exit and it will show all the points of interest on that exit.
