Technology for trucker drivers keeps improving, and the apps being made are impressive. Apps are being created that could contribute to making your many miles easier, or even more worth your while. Safety while driving is your biggest responsibility, but while you’re parked you can enjoy some of the benefits these highlighted apps have to offer!
You are constantly filling up your truck with diesel to keep your system going, so why not buy it at the cheapest station? Fuelbook at no cost finds you diesel prices at over 7,000 truck stops, has your active parking status, GPS check-in, truck stop specials, and it updates six times a day!
You won’t need your transponder any longer after this app. Drivewyze allows you to bypass weigh stations and mobile inspection sites through their app. It’s compatible with over 600 sites in 38 operational and pending states. When you bypass a weigh station or mobile inspection site you save money, fuel, time, and minimize stress and hassle. You will be able to bypass 50 to 98 percent of the participating stations depending on your carrier safety score. Don’t know if you’ll like it? You can get a free 30-day trial! If you love it after that, it’s only $15.75 a month.
Driving all day can get boring, but driving all day while listening to your new favorite book can be fun! Audio Books offers the most popular titles with such easy to use controls; you’ll want to listen to your books even when you’re not driving. At the end of the day, your entertainment is important, but your safety is the most vital. That’s why you can use the CarPlay feature that minimizes the controls necessary to run the app for safer driving. There are over 100,000 titles, so we are sure you’ll find some books to pass the time!
Cost Per Mile
Figuring out your cost per mile doesn’t have to require a calculator anymore. With the Cost Per Mile app, you can now just enter in total miles ran, income, fixed and variable expenses and the app will do all the math for you. The best part is that the app is free!
Again, don’t forget that distracted driving is deadly. Use your tech responsibly and you’ll reap the benefits. Also, watch your battery … GPS features on all these apps can deplete your battery if it’s running in the background all the time. Enjoy!
