Very few laptops have GPS in them and very few Windows apps are written to use the Windows Location Services Protocol. You likely need a USB puck GPS to get most Windows apps to show your location. Best way to report on the road is with RadarScope on a phone.

If you click settings; Layers, what is the third item in the list? For me it is STATEMENTS.
When I click the little gear at the bottom a window pops up, at the top of this window is a bar with buttons for "layers" "settings" "help" and "pro", under layers are the following options in this order

warnings
lightning
storm tracks
mping reports
locations
cities
highways

I believe I once had tier 1 on my home computer and it was only 10$ a year, but I never got it on the ipad, and I'm not sure what features in it would be needed for chasing? Without any subscriptions I get 4 tilts of reflectivity, velocity, and duel pole products, as well as storm relative velocity (which is not too useful in ny), echo tops, VIL, 1 hour and storm total rain, and the storm tracking algorithm

All I remember tier 1 adding was the longer animation and lightning, while the long animation is nice, I wouldn't want to use up too much data running it on mobile, and in the warm season I can generally assume any meaningful area of 50+dbz has lightning and any <50dbz echo doesn't

Is there somthign important I am missing out on in tier 1 that I don't know about?

OK, I think I have a clue. I have an old ipad that is stuck at IOS 9.3.5 and it has an old version of of Radarscope (3.13.1) that the layers more closely resemble what you have - even though the iPad has more than you listed.
