Ratings and Reviews
Works great for me.
Once it is downloaded a broker need only shoot me a text. The text integrates with MacroPoint immediately allowing them to track me at all times. When I arrive and empty or load a trailer I just push a button. All liability is on the driver. State and federal laws against texting and driving apply. Even if I do not have the app MacroPoint can still track my phone via cell towers.
Kills Phone battery to quickly
Great app but it drains my phone battery too quickly, lose about 20% every 30-45 mins on new iPhone 7 Plus with iOS 10.2.1 this app needs to be updated before I will download it again. They cannot track you by text message, only by using the app.
I hate this #1 kills battery #2 tracks every move you make if brokers that worried call my dispatch the eld with gps can tell them what's going on and # 3 if I drop load and another driver takes it to the receiver it's still tracking me no way to clear out load info unless you complete it or delete it
