Good but can be great with a little work

At work we have been using active 911 for 3-4 years now. Some minor mapping issues have been noted. I would love to see a routing system that notes over 56,000 pound rated vehicles. In addition maybe yellow areas on roads that have size issues. Example roads that that are smaller than 2 opposing 8-10 foot lanes tight streets, alleys, and private drives listed in yellow as a hazard. Last suggestion the address portion of dispatch page place a column under comments and place google street view of address provided. In some instances it may assist in locating incidents or coming up with tactical solutions even at time of dispatch.

Just some ideas for the system. Overall it gets the info to you and gets you to where you need to go consistently .

Could be 5 stars

The app does part of what it should do... I would give it 5 stars if the mapping system actually worked. For example, when clicking on the google maps button the app uses what I’m assuming to be gps coordinates vs the actual address. Maybe times the gps coordinates are wrong. And because they are gps coordinates it is impossible to verify that you are going to the correct address because you’re comparing numbers vs the actual address text. The other issues when using gps coordinates is when you arriving at the location. If I’m driving and I want to confirm the house number via the google map app I can’t because it shows that you have arrived at the gps location vs saying you have arrived at t 123 Main St for example. Another issue is you can not copy text from the dispatch information and then paste that into google maps, the app doesn’t allow you to copy information from the app to put into other apps like google maps, Apple Maps, or any other app. This makes verifying the address extremely hard and annoying. If they mapping issues aren’t their fault they should allow people to be able to copy and paste the information so you can easily google the address and verify the information is correct.

Very awesome with one personal preference change.

Very useful it’s been great to use active 911 on my volunteer dept. cause our dept is very out dated due to funding issues and we do not have MDTs or CADs in our trucks so we rely heavily on this for finding our way to calls and I must say 95% it’s on the mark a few times it’s not but that’s not the app it’s google maps or Apple Maps that is messed up. Only suggestion I wish to see which is only a personal preference is ability to add in your created tone by your self. I made my depts Fire tone and have a file downloaded and would love to use it personally cause I’m used to hearing it from my radio for dispatch. I’m more accustomed to it and rather use it personally. But that’s not and wrong with the app just would like it as personal preference of mine app is amazing and also the family sms for my family to know when I have a call is nice.
