Trucker Path Pro app review: always find a place to stop

Reviews

Introduction

As a trucker you are probably well aware of how hard it can be to find truck stops while on the road. The Trucker Path Pro app can be used on your iPod touch, iPad, and iPhone as a way to get instant information on a variety of truck stops, rest areas, weight stations, parking, washing facilities, and so much more. What's great is that the information is available instantly, which is clearly important when you’re on the road and looking for a stop.

Finding What You Need

The Trucker Path Pro app is filled with a number of tools to help you find what you need and quickly. Not only will you be able to locate the nearest truck stops but you can also read details such as the number of scales, its directions, the number of parking spaces, the fax and phone number of the stop, and what's located nearby, facility and amenity wise. There is also a trip planner tool that makes it possible for truckers to plan out their route based on the various truck stops.

Because I'm clearly not a professional trucker it's hard to comment on the content of the app but the user interface can be discussed. I find the user interface to be quite busy at times and a bit difficult to navigate and read. It is dependent on how much is being displayed on the screen at one time but it seems users aren't quite as put off by this.
