The Truck Stop Locator mobile application is an Android app designed by O'Mecha Online. It helps travellers find all of the truck stops along their route, as well as communicate with nearby truckers through the map chat function.
The Truck Stop Locator application includes corporate truck stops such as Sapp Brothers, AmBest, Travel America, Flying J and Pilot. Petro and Loves are also mapped, as well as independently owned truck stops. Each stop is marked by a pinpoint, and the app includes information such as the address, the exit off which the stop is located, whether or not the stop serves food and the number of available parking spaces. Also highlighted are the presence of RV facilities that allow drivers to dump their tanks or refill propane and whether or not diesel fuel is available.
The app's map chat function allows users to exchange information concerning driving conditions with other drivers on the road, or just have friendly conversations with nearby drivers. The app also includes the option to input information about truck stops that are not included in Truck Stop Locator's database, allowing the app's information pool to grow daily.
Reviews of the Truck Stop Locator mobile application are average. Many users are happy with the app's capabilities, acknowledging that not all of the information pertaining to the truck stops is completely accurate but citing the inclusion of rest areas as a positive. Other users were dissatisfied by the app's load time and the lack of listed truck stops in certain areas of the United States.
