IMHO the whole point of a rally is the fact that it is the riders/drivers responsibility to stay on course,and when they are off course,to work out how to get back on using the navigational aids on the bike/car.Not to phone up and get directed in like some Sega video game.
which is why something simple that just showed live distance from/to waypoints would be good - not much help for the riders but you would be able to see who was stopped, who was riding with who etc
