Ratings and Reviews
Very helpful, but some significant annoyances
This app has helped very much to find truck routes in unfamiliar areas, especially the East Coast where there are many truck restrictions and low overpasses. HOWEVER some annoyances need to be addressed:
1: Cannot access settings while navigating. 2: Once exiting navigation, settings can be accessed but they are very basic. I drive a large, 13 ton box truck with a 13’ height but noticed that the routes favor taking “three lefts” rather than one simple right turn which I can totally do in this thing. Settings don’t seem to allow for the fact that I don’t have a trailer and can turn on a dime in spite of my height.
3: I forgot what the third thing was. Oh yeah! The map keeps resetting to “Default, Sound On” rather than “Satellite, Sound Off” every time I reopen the app. GRRRR!
4: (I just remembered the fourth thing which was actually the third thing but whatever, you’re probably not reading this anyway but I really do love this app. Mostly.) I would like to be able to get rid of the quick menu of icons at the bottom of the screen. It gobbles up valuable real estate and I do not use those shortcuts ever. Let us hide them! Thank you
Took me to dirt road
I’ve used this app only a few times. I work on the Dollar General store account in the midwest and I often have to deliver to stores in the middle of nowhere. I’ve used it in Arkansas to avoid dirt roads (my Navigo gps inside my truck provided by Qualcomm often takes me to dirt roads). It worked.
Though it took me to a dirt road in March 2019 while driving in Nebraska. Another time in Missouri it wanted me to go uphill left and right through a neighborhood with small streets to reach my destination instead of going just straight ( the store was 1/2 mile ahead).
I’m not trusting this app that much.
Also you cannot zoom out when using the navigation without eventually disappearing from the screen.
Everything else works fine so far.
This app is terrible if you rely on it for truck routes that are anywhere but the freeways.
It has gotten me into trouble way too many times. Twice in the last 2 days. It had me turn on a service road that was too tight for my truck. I had to jump the curb/median so as not to wreck the side of my trailer. By the time a sign was posted only 30’ long trucks could make it, I couldn’t back up. This was in NYC. It has sent me on roads that when I get there are clearly not for trucks. Posted as well. Today it sent me on a road on Long Island that I couldn’t fit under the bridge. That was the last straw that made me write this review.
Do NOT rely on this if you’re a trucker going anywhere but the major highways. And it’s terrible at finding truck washes as well. I’ve been across the U.S. and this is just let me down too many times.
