Long Haul Trucking is a hard enough job, being able to find a truck stop when you need one shouldn't be. Hopefully this will help those road rangers stay fueled, fed and at the top of their game.

Sam's Clubs and Wal Marts have been filtered to only show those that are known to allow overnight parking, but just in case, a single button click allows you to call to make sure. There is no filter for Home Depot, Lowe's and Costo's because I have not been able to find any information, but I have added them so that in a pinch it allows another potential option.. they too have one click phone call ability to validate that the store will not have a problem with you being there overnight.

Ratings and Reviews
I give this app 3 stars for only one reason, they do not show one set of Florida weigh station on the I-95 corridor in the Fort Pierce area. For this reason I would be concerned using this app to locate weigh stations in states I am not familiar.
Truck stops and other locations from what I can tell are accurate and trip planner seems to work as described.
Updates are very slow
I agree with most drivers, great app when first came out, but now it seems that there are no updates to the truck stop data base. I have noticed that some loves and pilots have been open over a year and still nothing. A simple check on the web sites show the new and coming truck stop up to a year before hand. I think the Developers got the money and ran
The app is helpful but needs to be updated more than once every year and a half. Lot of truck stops not showing on the app
With Family Sharing set up, up to six family members can use this app.
