Truck drivers need Maps Pro for trucks
Im a truck driver and have windows 8 tablet so Id love to have Maps Pro for trucks.
Hello and thanks for those precisions,
I believe some of it could be done, to some extent. I am currently working on having a full offline experience, not just downloading the map images but also POI, and road network for offline routing. The data will be based on OpenStreetMap, which has some interesting tags for trucks such as "maxheight", "maxwidth", maxlength".
You can check the current coverage of this information here:
It might not be complete but it could help at least. I will seriously consider this feature once I have completed the full offline mode
Again,thanks for your feedback!
Hello. I also would like to see a truck specific app. Some of the things that make it different are,
truck routes, We don't like going down residential areas lol. Low bridge warnings. Should be obvious, reference you tube for low bridge truck crashes. I don't always have internet so map data base would be important. Stuff like truck stop locations and rest areas, Wal-Marts etc. DOT scale locations would be a big help. Night screen as well, so no reflection in windows at night time.
I have ran for years with my laptop open to use Streets and Trips (which never became truck friendly) I also run my log book from same laptop. To my dismay I've learned that Streets and Trips is discontinuing. I need to replace this soon. A great program would get the attention of a lot of truckers
Hello and thanks for this idea!
I never used a mapping software specific to truck drivers, what makes it different? Do you get different routing instructions (more detailed? Different traffic)?
Anything else? Do you have a reference software?
