Jeep Badge of honor
« on: February 21, 2014, 06:59:59 AM »
Just wondering if anyone here uses the Jeep Badge of Honor app to get trail badges?? I think it's kinda cool and am planning on getting a couple in Moab.

Never heard of it :D What I thought was cool is Tara had a tee shirt made for me that has all of the trails we've run in Moab.

I tried to download it, but it is only available for Android and I Phones, I have a Windows based phone.

For each trail that is on the app, jeep mails you a badge for your jeep after you run it.

Haven't heard of that.  Kind of a cool idea but after a while I don't think we would have any paint showing. 8)

Well, I don't think that will be an issue. the app only has selected trails on it. Right now there is about 30 or so and a good deal of them are ones that you guys run all the time. I have noticed that they do change them up once in a while.

I downloaded it but something called socalize.gigya.com wants to "view my email address, view basic information about my account, and manage my contacts" before I could activate the app.  Looks like nothing more than a data mining operation.

One of our club members was showing me the badge he had recently received in the mail. It did not look like anything I would attach to my jeep. I can't think of a place for it anyway. That said, everyone has differing ideas obout things like that. I still get teased occasionally for not removing the chrome grill cover this model came with.  ;D

It might be something to collect and place on a plaque for home or office display. I can see how folks can enjoy sharing their accomplishments with this program. I just was not excited by the actual plastic badge.

That's a shame, I was hoping they were something worth having...
