According the app’s developers, “TruckChat allows drivers to anonymously post and view messages within a predefined geographic area considering the truckers current position while traveling. Once initiated, the system allows the driver to follow the chat regardless of position if desired. The app promotes real-time communications between truck drivers, allowing drivers to communicate between themselves about issues of relevance such as traffic, directions, parking availability at truck stops and rest areas, or specials of interest to drivers, based on their location. While drivers can use the phone’s built-in microphone system to convert speech into text, the company is suggesting the app be used during off hours or while loading and unloading.”
The makers of TruckChat say that is designed to act just like CB radio without the hassle and cost of buying special equipment. They point out that the app is even more convenient because it gives drivers written answers to questions from other drivers.
TruckChat is free and does not require any signup or email logins.
