    Hi

    This is driving me nuts. I have researched most of the travel apps in an effort to get one that will tell me my gate number.
    This would be particularly useful in transit when time is tight.

    Unfortunately all of the ones so far only tell me accurate info within North America. (e.g. Airport Zoom)

    Does anyone know of a truly global app that will get the gate numbers outside of US too?

    Thanks

    Welcome to Milepoint! :)
    Have you tried GateGuru? I have not used this, however I remember some discussion around its abilities.

    Thanks for responses and the welcome :)

    Both of those have been reported as US-centric, unfortunately, although I have not tried FlightBoard yet.
    I tried GateGuru, didn't work for a UK to Europe flight.

    Have you seen FlightBoard get gates correct for 2 airports outside US?
    (I expect it to get all gates outbound of US)

    Thanks

    None of these work. No app I have tried gets this right outside of the US. Guess the info from the European and Asian airports doesn't come so easy.
