Constantly tracks you. Stay away!!!

Tracked me 208 times in three days. And I’ve never had a load yet that required it. Dispatch asked me to download it. They can drift too!!!

Stay away if you can

They’re tracking you 24/7 even if you’re not using very big privacy concern.
Please don’t use it

Developer Response ,

HI, the phone uses significant location changes, when a phone moves part of a mile, and checks if there is a load assigned. If no load, the location is not sent from the phone. We understand the concerns and only collect locations when a load is in progress.

Time waste app

It worked for me once or twice, now it says MacroPoint could not determine your phone number. Uninstalled and installed it number of times. Same old story, wastage of time and data.
No star as App does not work
