About

Off Comm is a mobile app for offroad enthusiasts. The final product will not be much like the Lead Nav's, or the Mob Armor GPS. We actually want to work with those companies to make trails searchable. We want a map interface with details, ratings and information every enthusiast needs to know before they get on the trail. Up to date obstacles, sight seeing locations, scenic routes, things to avoid, etc. The rest of the app will be built much like a facebook, instagram and snapchat with integrated easy to follow and search forums. Unlike the restricted algorithms with social media Off comm will bring Vendors and Enthusiasts to a new level of exposure. This will improve vendor customer service. 

Offroad groups will be made to be private or public and will have full control of their network as well with geo notification, push notifications and map sharing abilities. From amature hobbiests on to the pro off road race teams we are going to make this dynamic and groundbreaking for everyone. Our goal is to make this app perfect for the group meetups, event organizers, and the solo enthusiasts trying to find events nearby. Giving back to off road is the goal and we want to make sure everyone benefits from this app some form or fashion. The ideas to improve this app haven't stopped yet and the categories of enthusiasts keeps growing every day.

We're sourcing this build out to topcoder.com to make and design the most ideal UX possible. Right now we have an open project and are in need of a prototype that will cost $7,000. Once we have a working prototype the mobile app will be designed by some of the best and most talented people we can find for the job through our team at topcoder. With the working prototype we will try to connect with vendors to find partnerships to get the final product off the ground. The final application development costs are estimated to be $60,000 because of some of the details to make this thing right. The rest of the money will be collected by kickstarter so they can make their cut. We just ask that we hit the mark to get it off the ground and once that happens the trail updates will be up to us. 

We're very excited and hope you are as well to make this real. We hope to launch the app by the start of the start of the 50th Baja 1000 in November with a product release at SEMA 2017.

Risks and challenges

The biggest risks we race so far is that this project will only be funded by us the users. We want this app to be made right the first time. We understand this it's going to take time to make it right. The working prototype is the first hurdle and once we have that, the development will take about a week. With the prototype we can show vendors and supporters an option to make the real thing. Like anything else this project is going to take persistence, consistency and dedication. I hope to put the most talented people on this project to bring it to life, but I need your help.
