Waaaay too expensive 1/5
Waste of time. Waaaay too expensive for what it is.
There is no use in this unless you pay for a $$$ subscription. No thanks.
Just filling words
Just started using this app and it’s not very intuitive. I’m not sure that I’ll be avoiding tunnels and low overpasses. It seems to be taking us on lots of unnecessary side roads. A trucker just told us to take 95 to 695 - much easier than app directions.
You can’t try it! 1/5
When you’re trying to make a decision between what your next truck gps will be you want to have the opportunity to try it out and see how it behaves on the road. This app will only let you use it for 1-2 hours and than it asked for money.... with a 3 star out of 5 rating one might hope they need as many professional drivers testing it out but I guess there is a reason why the developer doesn’t want us testing it in real life scenarios.
I have downloaded both apps and I have 14 days to try copilot but not this one. I have a randcnally and I want to test the apps against it to see if I can make a reliable switch for my trucking company and to trust that drivers get at destination on time every time. Good luck finding people spending their money blindly.
The best! 5/5
By Ent Coach Driver
Smart Truck Route the best gps out there for large vehicles. Never let me down!
It’s okay and gets the job done when my Rand McNally’s is off line, but it needs a little adjustments go it can be as good as the GPS systems you buy
Please renew my subscription I’ve tried to contact you 1/5
By mario toscano
I tried to contact their customer service through text and through calls and through email I hope they get back to me on this after I write a bad review because it seems they write back on here but not on anything they have on their website so please contact me
True truck GPS app 5/5
By Tech Support SmartTruckRoute
Works great, creates routes based on vehicle size and weight so routes will be different for 18 wheeler trucks versus box trucks. Their customer service is very helpful. I depend on this app every day. Thanks for a great software product for truckers.
Truck Driver 5/5
By Truck User
This is a fantastic navigation app for truck drivers. It adjusts the route based on the size and weight of the truck. I depend on it daily.
Truck gps 3/5
Terrible product I would recommend anybody to buy it addresse input is bad it give you your current location as destination
Good and handy
Smart RV ap 1/5
Purchased this app yesterday, it didn’t make the trip, it shut off several times, then it switched to trucker app. Terrible!
Be Smart Using Smart Truck App 3/5
At times it’s spot on near perfect with directions. But always have a map and use google street view to verify directions. You’ll need a back up nav aid as this one will at times give long and sometimes wrong directions. It’ll get you where you need to go but you must also be smart...like Smart Truck Route.
Keeps pausing music 3/5
While using the app, a notification sound goes off and always pauses my music. I turned off as many options as I could and it still does it. Very frustrating
Wow did this app make me wanna quit my job today... i’m not going to even get into details. Bottom line is it’s no good!!
Not free 1/5
This app is not free except from 1-2am. Don’t list your app as free if it’s not.
Update: Received an email from the developer:
“We clearly state that this is by subscription only. However we also give instructions for a 2 day trial. Please download the app, Press Menu > Settings > Feedback > Select either Text or Email, Enter comment "FREE TRIAL", Press Send. You will be set up to use the app free of charge for 2 days."
You DO NOT clearly state this is a subscription app. And it is not clear once you open the app that you offer a 2 day trial. What is clear is this is an app that is confusing on purpose and it is designed to trick you into paying for a service that they deceivingly offer for free when you initially download it. No way I’m allowing a company like that to have any of my financial information.
Safe your money 1/5
If can avoid this thing, do so.
Just waist one year,
Tried contact support team, couldn’t again waist
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!
