Don’t get this app 1/5
I got this app thinking it would deliver what it promised. After paying for the subscription it got me lost in NEWYORK took me on routes that were not meant for trucks and took me on unnecessary circles hitting every toll road. It kept glitching and at one point stopped showing me the route all together. Useless ripoff of an app
By really bad gps
Can man to pan man Ergodynamics! 5/5
To the catcorn and backroads plan tan to fan gan! Glip and gurt jip and hump. The flowers and unicorn flip to the hay!
Was working 1/5
Was working fine until it sent me into a housing neighborhood.
To many bugs 2/5
The app could be nice since its looks like google maps but it has too many bugs all the time!
Sometime it shut down by itself, you cant listen your music in the same time than the app, it took me in an no truck area at Chino CA so I reported to them with picture and gps location to improve the map and 4 weeks later I came back at the same area and same mistake It took me back to a no truck zone nothing changed!
you cant zoom in and out with 2 finger like google map, and especially when driving no way to zoom in and out to see the global map
It could be nice but for now too many littles thing that make it difficult to use everyday
Happy I only took one year and no more!
The best 5/5
By trucker 86
Great app Are use it every day and it failed yet do you wish they would put in night mode on it to make the screen less bright stupendous app
By call sign Smash
If you are thinking about downloading this app let me save you the time and money by telling you do not do it! I down loaded the app with a three month installment on my iPad mini and it has gotten me lost 10 times (and that is under exaggerating) and has shut off on me running one way from one coast to coast at least 10 times and half of those times were in vital situations where I was in the city and really needed it which is why I had gotten lost. I am on home time for a week right now but when I go back out you can bet your last dollar it will not be under the guidance of this!
Direction overview 1/5
This app does keep you far away from bridges but the directions aren’t as accurate as a regular GPS when it summons me to make a right on 5th ave it should automatically direct me to the next turn without confusion please check into that! It’s not as clear as it should be in giving direction!
Helpful, especially in NYC! 4/5
I liked this app enough to get a 3yr subscription. It’s been very helpful to me and I would’ve given it 5 stars except for one thing. The width of the purple route guide bothers the hell out of me!!! Make that a thin sharp line and the app is perfect.
Bad routes 1/5
Horrible app I used it to navigate Chicago with me in a no truck zone
Free part useless 1/5
Useless unless you cough up $60 for a year or $11 for 7 days. Allowing 3-5 free uses / routes would be more reasonable. Who would pay without being able to try it out?
Useless app! 1/5
It needs a lot of work. I wish I can get my money back. There's better truck route apps for less money.
Used to be great 1/5
I used to love this app, but after using the android version for the last couple years, this iOS version of the app is a huge disappointment. You don't get anywhere near the amount of features, not even close. It won't let me save more than 6 or 7 favorites before it randomly deletes one, whereas on android I had over 600 saved. Honestly, unless they can get this app on par with the android version, it's not worth the subscription fee. Which is sad for me to say, because I've always loved SmartTruckRoute. So if you've got an android device as well, download version 2 of this app, its amazing. If not, don't waste your money on the subscription on the iOS version.
Don't know 1/5
Not free you have to pay for it
Paid for this App! $30 for a 3 month use. First week all it did was Crash while in use, gave me wrong directions, made me take the Long Way to my final destination, Sent me down a low bridge route without WARNING!!! Sent me down a NO TRUCK ROUTE . This app is a Negative 5. I should get reimbursed!! Buy a GPS for Truckers, not this App!
Load of crap 1/5
Don't waste your time downloading... they charge you just to use it.. they don't even tell you until you're done.. they want you to subscribe.
Well done 5/5
By Llopis b
It does has a few kinks, yet the app is still on time. I had an issue previously, and reached out to customer service. The representative stepped to the plate and fixed the issue. This app is an overall good investment and money saver!
El pato!! 5/5
I loved is very nice and exactly dirección and easy to use
Does what it's supposed to. But needs work 3/5
The app does what it's supposed to on the cheap. But I have a few gripes. I wish the ETA were based on real time traffic conditions versus only current speed. I once arrived a whole hour after it said I would. I also wish the app would stop interrupting my music. I have to hit play again after every voice prompt.
Also if I make a wrong turn it takes forever to recalculate a new route.
Either way this beats paying hundreds on other apps or GPS hardware.
J wright 5/5
Used alot of gps in my day an this one is tops..... had a little trouble with my i pad not being updated but there support team CALLED me an walk me threw everything wish there was 6 stars
Probably the worst app I've ever used 1/5
I'm not a truck driver so this was a one time use of the app for a move. This was the most unpleasant experience I've ever had with any app. The whole interface is poorly designed, the navigation is horrible and the noises and sounds were so annoying I had to mute my phone. I'll focus on the main use of the app, the navigation. If the highway is splitting into north or south for example, the app would tell me to take 278 north for example with no dictation of it being left or right. The symbol at the top left of the app where t should tell you to take the ramp on the right or left for example, is a an actual ramp and not a turn sign. The best part of this app was deleting it.
It is the best I use it on my ipad pro 12.9 inch wifi + celular. 5/5
Its got to be wifi + LTE 4G celular cause is the only ipad that have GPS
Navigation is Great for Drivers!!! 5/5
By Slate Trucking
This app works great if you're a truck driver that has a smartphone or tablet and don't want to spend 200-500 bucks on a gps in a store.
I'm OTR and use this app for all of my p/u & deliveries. It hasn't taken me down a non-truck route yet ! No low bridges or sketchy residential areas anymore just gives you multiple options in your route plan. Like quickest or shortest route for trucks, shows truck stops, weigh stations (it notifies you 7 miles prior to), and much more.
I would definitely recommend it !!!
Good app 5/5
Needs work ! 1/5
No way to fully mute app, makes an annoying noise that pauses music and it does it often. Very clunky compared to the one on android. Hard to zoom out while on a route .
By Colliding Moments
This app gets you all ready to set your route then takes you to a paid subscription page. And it's expensive. Not cool guys!
By QuickFix Ahron
This app requires a subscription.
No Free Trial 1/5
Downloaded it, expected a free trial to see if it works, no trial so not going to buy it....
App is Free But to Use it... 1/5
App is free but in order to use it they make you buy a prescription. Waste of my time.
Background support 5/5
By Full metal artimis
The STR team listens and works hard to get things right. It may take some time but the updates they have coming made me happy with the problems I had.
5 stars if this app had background support. Any calendar alert knocks it out of driving mode. When I start moving it should start navigating not me having to go back and restart the navigation. Also needs some more detailed instructions. In mor urban areas like the nj turnpike hearing keep right or left will help out not just next exit 10 miles ahead when their could be multiple maneuvers in between.
DO NOT WASTE YOUR MONEY 1/5
This app locks up, closes often. You can not trust it to work when you need it.
British accent that is hard to understand and is annoying. Directions are repetitive sometimes to the point of 4 or 5 times within a mile and sometimes wrong. Telling you a right exit when it is a right exit. Hill notices are very inaccurate.
Smart trucking 5/5
This app will save you time and fuel. If you drive hazmat it's a must! The customer service is excellent and for $99 for three years you can't beat it
Horribke app useless 1/5
You have to pay to get routes!
Bad very bad 1/5
By Truck 5585
This map every time frozen how you need make turn!!!
Do not buy terrible app 1/5
Do not buy this app I used it for a few days it tells you the exit is on the left side on the highway even though it's on the right side. I was loaded at 80,000 pounds and it sent me on a 5 ton limit road. Stay away for this app. I called customer service for a refund and they said you do it though the app but they lied and now when I call back they don't answer.
Ok app 3/5
It can be annoying at times occasionally tells you there is no internet connection. Pop-up messages like when you cross state borders that I have to reach up and clear is also annoying. Occasionally tells you to go opposite direction then shows you doing U-turn and coming back the same way. Gives good directions most of the time.
Not satisfied at all 1/5
This app will not even open but I paid for it ,,Smh.... i need a full refund!
App not worth it! 1/5
Where do I start? App is very bulky as you must try and change settings it refuses to allow changes. Toggle buttons don't work. Does it route the best possible. Even a truck quickest why window mounted GPS gave better routing and quicker times that this app. No detail on the iPod/iPhone version. Can only put in one way point at a time. Map jumps around it doesn't let you get a large view of the area. It only looks at about the nearest 10 miles. Doesn't show much detail in the way of cross routes. Has no traffic support or warnings. Next to impossible to find a fuel location in another city without looking at 20 different stations. Not worth the price. Go out and buy a Garmin or a Rand McNally. You'll be better off. Deleted my app and didn't even finish my week's subscription.
Needs some work 2/5
I bought this app to help me negotiate the roads in the metro NYC area. I have a commercial van and do service calls in Long Island and several of the boroughs of NYC.The first time it used it, it directed me on to a "parkway". But all parkways in NY are passenger cars only. I have sent them updates to please correct this, but as yet have not seen this corrected. What good is a "truck" app that brings yoiu on roads that trucks are not allowed On. Hopefully they will correct this soon. I bought a 3 month subscription, I hope I can buy it for a year , but will only do it if they correct this. otherwise I can get the same wrong directions on google or waze.
Excellent app for truckers!!!! 5/5
By Working great for me!
I have been using this app religiously for a year now with an iPhone 6 Plus and have found it to be very accurate. I prefer an American sounding female voice over it's British counterpart for the navigation. It also uses 45 gigs of memory so make sure you have enough before attempting a download. I love the truckstop option and the DOT scales within 7 miles option showing you those points of interest along your route. I'm giving it five stars for its accuracy and functionality. I like being able to search by company name just like google instead of address only on the more expensive stand alone gps units sold in truck stops. Overall, it is a very useful app which I am well pleased, it has been a blessing to me.
Bait and Switch 1/5
Deleted as fast as I downloaded it.
Not paying for gps to Many free apps for that.
Needs more control for audio alerts 1/5
By P1 in Houston
I signed up for a seven day trial period. Maybe this is a good routing app but I find the constant audio tones of upcoming turns to be beyond annoying. First because everytime the tone goes off it causes any other audio I am listening to on my device to completely stop playing and is
a MAJOR distraction. Second there are far too many tones occuring. And while you can turn off the voice directions in the settings menu, there are no controls for these annoying tones.
My advice to developers, make the app interface better with other media players.
Make the tones controllable in the settings menu.
Not good 2/5
2 stars just because am nice this app is not working for me just waste 10 dollars on nothing goes off for nothing and for plan a trip you got to put you location manually really you know where am and the graphics are not good looks like from a old gps version and calculate very slow you guys need put more work on this app
4 star customer service!! 5/5
By RK Lawn and Pool
I just downloaded the app, I'm giving it a seven day subscription trial to see how it works. I'm using iPad and the iPhone and I had a few issues getting from iPad to iPhone and contacted customer service. With in one minute I was on the phone with Karen from customer service as she walked me through everything even taking the time to give me a few tips on how to use it, and was absolutely the most pleasant person I've dealt with on the phone in a long time. Just 30 minutes using the app and I'm hooked! I'm going to get the yearly subscription. Great app great job! It's worth the $10 to try it and if you're a truck driver like me it is a great help!
Bait and Switch 1/5
"Free App" that requires you to pay for routes.
Couldn't tell you 1/5
By Lou NJ
Can't do anything unless you pay. Should show this before they make you download it.
This is pretty good 4/5
I've had this app for awhile I bought as a companion to my garmin I like the satellite details for getting into the customers place of business it's a pretty good app overall like I said as a companion to a real gps
This application is OK when it works. 1/5
No way to reach customer service. This app crashes when you need it the most. I travel a lot in my business and I bought this application to help get me around New York City, but my last two trips there this app crashed at least 4 to 5 times while trying to wrap me around the city of New York and out of the city.
Way too expensive to purchase something like this and it not work at the main point in time when you need it the most.
Have to pay 1/5
Have to pay
Way too expensive? 1/5
I agree with "Bedbugger"'s review. You need some sort of free trial. I drive an RV and need similar information but I'm not willing to pay $10 just to see if it works. Perhaps even the ability to create a route but with no GPS guidance functionality. Living in Connecticut, there are low bridges along the coast and NY parkways that don't allow larger vehicles. I need to know a route is safe for travel.
