Weigh Station Bypass & Alerts
The PrePass app gives drivers the option to bypass weigh stations using mobile devices. PrePass is the only bypass app that provides the flexibility to leverage a bypass transponder or use the PrePass application stand-alone. PrePass is the most reliable, widely utilized weigh station bypass system in North America. With PrePass, pre-cleared vehicles can continue at highway speeds without having to stop. PrePass not only saves fleets time, fuel and money, but it helps create greater efficiencies for shippers and supports improved safety for all highway users.
With PrePass, customers select whether to use the PrePass app, the transponder or BOTH. The PrePass app provides coverage to an expanded number of weigh station sites while the transponder provides greater bypass reliability and integration with NORPASS and Oregon Green Light weigh station locations. The transponder also provides the option of adding toll payment services through PrePass Plus.
PrePass is an endorsed featured product of the American Trucking Associations ATA) and is also endorsed by the Owner Operator Independent Drivers Association (OOIDA), Truckers Service Association (TSA), National Association of Small Trucking Companies (NASTC) and state trucking associations across the country.

Ratings and Reviews
Great idea but needs improvement
I like having the ability for the app to display weigh station notifications to my garmin but... I'm already past the prepass readers by the time the app says I'm approaching a scale.
The app needs to have the initial notification at least 1-2 miles before the scale.
I don't know how long this app has been available but other notifications like parking/ rest areas are hit but mostly miss.
I haven't gotten any of the notifications besides scales and some parking/ rest areas.
I don't know if it's just iphones, but the app will not save my login which can be a pain.
Definitely needs work but I really like the idea.

There should be an option to see billing in real time as we go through tolls. You already have an app I don’t understand why you can’t integrate billing into that. The other day I was reading an article about transponder theft so if you had updates available in the app in real time or even at the end of the day, people would know right away if someone used their transponder. This would avoid so many headaches for drivers, owner operators, companies, and even the provider i.e. you, Prepass.
If you’re too tight to put money into a real app, charge all the users a one time five dollar fee to pay for an app that is actually useful. While I go to the toll booths, I’m not keeping track of which tollbooth I’m going through or how many miles I’ve traveled through. If I started taking a note of all those details, I’d be distracted while driving and putting myself and a lot of other people’s lives in danger.
I already have a transponder, so I don’t need an app that acts as a transponder. I need an app that lets me see billing in real time.
Very good app for the small operator
Definitely need wyoming, nebraska and iowa in it since you guys already have everything else covered except some strict states like oregon, cali, oklahoma and arizona which who knows hpw long it would take you guys to work something out with them but the ones i have mentioned,the law enforcement from my point of view is pretty liberal when it comes to truckers
