Second Year, Don’t Renew
I’m an OTR truck driver. The first year I used the SMART TRUCK ROUTE I used it as a back up and it was worth the money spent. I renewed this app thinking I would receive the same service. My mistake. About 2to3 months in, app was not pulling up addresses. I called the phone number I renewed with and with attitude was told after purchasing, that I needed APP VOL 2 cause my iPhone was dated. This should have been disclosed from renewal of APP VOL 1 wasn’t going to work anymore. After updating it worked sometimes, most often not. Now this app refuses to work period. I can type in a frequent address used, it says error. When I try to get an address to an Alabama Walmart, it pulls up the Atlantic Ocean. I would love to have the product that I started out with. This second year with this product has been a total flop. Do not get this app if you are a trucker and need dependable gps. You will be sorry. Would like to talk with support, but if it’s not an issue they have listed in their F&Q your out of luck. If your company would like to offer support, you can reach me at my email.
I put a 1 but I’m afraid to even put one star. My dad and I almost got into an accident using this navigation app. When we were in the middle of the road, a suggestion came to Update, but there was no working button to update, and the app just stops working. There isn’t even a choice to delay the Update. Basically, if you get the Update sign, that means you’re screwed in the middle of the road. The program still isn’t working. It’s an endless loop: you press Update, it sends you to the App Store, but the Update button doesn’t work, so you’re sent back. We’re getting no update, even though we paid good money for this app. By the way, the phone we are using is brand new, and the latest model, so there shouldn’t be a problem. Please return our money. Even if the program starts working a little later, there’s no point because it doesn’t work at the critical, necessary moments. This is very dangerous for truckers. It could stop working while you’re on the winter road in nighttime Alaska and what are you going to do then?
To many bugs
The app could be nice since its looks like google maps but it has too many bugs all the time! Sometime it shut down by itself, you cant listen your music in the same time than the app, it took me in an no truck area at Chino CA so I reported to them with picture and gps location to improve the map and 4 weeks later I came back at the same area and same mistake It took me back to a no truck zone nothing changed! you cant zoom in and out with 2 finger like google map, and especially when driving no way to zoom in and out to see the global map It could be nice but for now too many littles thing that make it difficult to use everyday Happy I only took one year and no more!
You can’t try it!
When you’re trying to make a decision between what your next truck gps will be you want to have the opportunity to try it out and see how it behaves on the road. This app will only let you use it for 1-2 hours and than it asked for money.... with a 3 star out of 5 rating one might hope they need as many professional drivers testing it out but I guess there is a reason why the developer doesn’t want us testing it in real life scenarios. I have downloaded both apps and I have 14 days to try copilot but not this one. I have a randcnally and I want to test the apps against it to see if I can make a reliable switch for my trucking company and to trust that drivers get at destination on time every time. Good luck finding people spending their money blindly.
No night screen
I wish the map turned into a black background at night, otherwise the app is way better than Sygic. Sometimes it kicks you out when it looses internet connection but that’s easy to get back on track. I like how there is no massive download to tie up device storage like Copilot and Sygic. It took hours to download these apps only to find to many mistakes in the maps. I need to be accurate and down to the minute on my routes. Night mode please!!! Other than that I would recommend that the user use an IPad with its own phone/data connection like I do.
Great customer service
Well Ive been using this app for 2 years and yes sometimes it crashes like any other gps but it has always taken me to where i need to go. Had an issue not to long ago with billing and they resolved this problem very quickly their customer service is awesome. So I definitely recommend this app, it will tell u when a weight station is near and all truck stops as well. It is constantly updating and you can also help them with feeback. Great app! And Great customer service!
Minor adjustments would make it 5 star
Good app for truckers overall, but the only things i find annoying are that when you type in a destination it only give you one route to take instead of bringing up multiple ways, and last but not least if you close the app it stops giving directions and when you open it back up you have to put the info in all over again. Fix those two major problems and you have a five star rating
Man, I sure hope it works alright. It looks good and I'll be using it right away! I've just read some of the reviews, after purchasing, and I see too many complaints 🤨. How's customer service with these guys, do they take feedback and suggestions? Some of their responses back to customers sounded of a bit 🥴too cocky? I'll update my experience on this on the next few days, if anyone cares 🤪.
You can do better
Very clunky screen(like watching a silent film from the 1920’s). Routing ok but would like other options without “route via” crap. I’ve spent 10 minutes carefully routing myself, then proceeded to drive then program crashes and you have to start all over again... nothing more infuriating. All the above issues pale in comparison to this last deal breaker... no traffic data... unacceptable. One 20 software blows this away and it was free. That company is no longer and their brilliant software died with them. Feel bad I even spent $12 on this junk. Simply do better!
IMO, talks too much. Tells me about every truck-stop within 100 miles, and repeats it multiple times. Enough already! Seems slow to update: the screen shows the turn I just made. Takes a moment or two before the next instruction is displayed. Will eventually get you to the destination, but somewhat aggravating. Not as good as some other navigation apps.
When I learned that the uhaul van I rented is considered a commercial vehicle I panicked because I didn’t know the truck routes from upstate NY to Brooklyn NY and back . I uploaded and deleted three truck gps aps until I found this one . Life saver , smooth sailing the whole way , kept me in the speed limit and found a fast easy route to and fro . Made what felt like was going to be a very stressful day a breeze! Highly recommend
If you are thinking about downloading this app let me save you the time and money by telling you do not do it! I down loaded the app with a three month installment on my iPad mini and it has gotten me lost 10 times (and that is under exaggerating) and has shut off on me running one way from one coast to coast at least 10 times and half of those times were in vital situations where I was in the city and really needed it which is why I had gotten lost. I am on home time for a week right now but when I go back out you can bet your last dollar it will not be under the guidance of this!
This is my only option to route through and around cities to route around low bridges and stay with the posted truck routes. Mostly Chicago. Use google maps and waze. No trucker gps needed having this app! Hasn’t failed me yet been using it for a year now and don’t want another screen to look at! Works for me . iPhone 8plus. Thanks
Works most of time
App crashes all the time. I have to restart app on every trip at least once. App support never responded to my gripe. Gives me directions to go down small residential streets all the time and some that post no trucks at the street. It is one of very few Trucking gps apps out there so it is a necessary evil. My $300 Rand McNally freezes up in big citys, hence me purchasing this app. I run this app, Waze, my common sense and my Rand McNally at once and I seem to do alright. Apparently there is no market for Trucking gps apps because the choices are slim to none.
It’s okay and gets the job done when my Rand McNally’s is off line, but it needs a little adjustments go it can be as good as the GPS systems you buy. I wished it had updates so it good can stay accurate. Sometimes it will take you around the long way around and it’s not all that great in new development areas or rural area. I give it a grade “B”!
