trucking android apps
Hi guys. Why don't we have a thread where we discuss the trucking apps we use on the road? I would love to hear some recommendations from you. I am interested in free apps only :) So far I have been using Roadhunter app quite successfully. It is free but gives me any information I need - maps, low clearance bridges, scales info, parking and much more.
Just was wondering what the other ones out there you would recommend.
Thanks.

RE:trucking android apps
Hello David, here's a link to a couple of blogs I wrote about my favorite apps.

There's another one coming soon that promises to be the best trucking app yet. We'll see. Check out http://one20.com/ It's still in test phase, but should be out real soon.

My new tool App SmartDecision from Semi Systems LLC is on Google Play for Download. Is just 30 days free after that it cost just one time 19.95 what i think is well spend. If you work with Brokers is very handy you setup how you like to run you truck and based on that if you get the info for the trip like Loaded, empty you tip it in and hit calculate it tells you the min amount the Broker should pay you for that specific Trip. its consider time off fuel price and much more. Check it out its for 30 days free. I like it i catch a lot of brokers try to cheat on the price.

RE:trucking android apps
I haven't. Is that the free logbook app? I've tried Big Road and am considering their ELD.

RE:trucking android apps
I really like the KeepTruckin app. I installed it about 6 months ago, and since it looks like a paper log, I found it significantly easier to transition. It has good features such as notifications for upcoming HOS violations, messaging system, and the DOT inspection mode.

I also tried BigRoad, but I just didn’t feel it. Their design was a bit too clunky and it was a deal breaker when they told me that I had to pay more to add administrator and manager accounts to my dashboard. The KeepTruckin’s app is just more to my taste. Also, they have the most 5-star reviews in the Play Store (12,000+ the last time I checked) so that’s a relief.
