Bug fixes and performance improvements
Ratings and Reviews
This app works great for me to manage my fault routine. Dispatch can put in my deliveries and pickups on routes. I can submit my proof of delivery, then when I pick up, I can put in the bill of lading and scale ticket and move on to my next destination. I love that it automatically goes into my hours of service clock while I’m driving, so I can manage my breaks and stopping for the evening. The DVIR feature is easy and informative. My only wish was that it could send a notification to dispatch if there was an issue that needed to be resolved, just so I didn’t have to call them to say, hey, I have an issue, can we get it fixed. Overall, great app and I hope it stays that way.
Dumb hos app
The app will switch my duty status to On Duty at random times. It will also sometimes not switch to Driving because it is not properly connected to the truck. Those will occasionally be fixed by logging out of the app weekly, but it happened to me this week after my weekly log out. This app doesn’t work well with split breaks. I spent 7 hours sleeper berth yesterday, 2 & a half hours at a shipper, those don’t work together, I then left to go to the consignee and had about 6 hours that I would be early to the consignee, which doesn’t allow overnight parking so I went to the company lot for 5 & a half hours. I had about 3 and a half hours left on my 11 & 14 hour clocks, 2 hours 15 minutes into delivery and it again wanted to replace my short break with the current one which wasn’t long enough and would have put me into violation. I had to edit 1 minute on duty into both times I was docked. Allow the driver to select one break for their short and long breaks in a split break so that the driver can avoid any problems with violations on their clocks.
Line 1, 14hr violation
Keeps showing violation for 14hr/shift clock when I’m on line 1/off duty. If I edit line 1 to line 2, the violation goes away. Keeps logging me out while I’m driving; I would like to be able to see my clocks at anytime without any hassles while I’m driving. Doesn’t matter if I’m using Samsung or iPad; these issues prevail. Please fix. If it weren’t for this glitch, it’s possible that I wouldn’t have gotten caught in a blizzard in Iowa because I was waiting for my fleet manager (it took him a while to get back to me) to help me figure out what was wrong with my logs, and now my load is a day behind schedule. This is pretty serious stuff, really needs to be fixed. And what do you expect us to do? Pull over every time we need to see our clocks so that we can log back in? Being required to type in a password frequently is just not a safe thing for us to be doing. We also need a way to be able to move at a truck stop during our break without going on duty yard move or on duty driving.
