    I love where I work and we are too small to have what Mr. Elliot presents. The only information I have is experience, albeit slim, coupled with "wild guessing". I used to have a secret weapon (OVM Radar) that would advise me on locations. Come to think of it, back in my daze I went without any information from them too.

    Yeah I have always said so much of expediting is like legalized gambling! Well we just worked to figure out how to count cards and stack the deck a bit :)

      I get the same thing. My thinking was is was showing all L1 units in the area or combined. In-service or OOS?
      Says 42 Sprinters when touching Detroit area on mine?

      Roadtime can you send me the screen shot. Yeah that doesnt make sense.Sounds like it is pulling OOS units as well, but the order should be correct for your unit I would think as the OOS units would be at the bottom of the pecking order.

      Ok, glitch should be fixed. It was capturing Load One OOS units as well.

      I just saw that. That was fast :)

      Although, I was going to say it's not a totally bad thing to know how many are lurking in the shadows :rolleyes:

      True but even if they all came back in service they would still be below you on the list.

      Yeah, only times it may come in handy is like..well, like now. Normally I would be OOS service during this time and still pounding if I should be, but seeing there are XX amount of units in waiting to come back on, I might think otherwise to preserve my spot, rather then come back in service to find I'm 42 of 42 ;)

      Give us a little, and we just want more lol.

      Just got back home and did a 19 on qc and was 10 of 17. Also did one on app and was 11 of 19. Go figure.

      When my daughter was about 5 she’d ask, “what time is it,exactly ? “
      Did you just witness “ in real time “ and in real accurate time ?

      Should be pulling same info if you have the exact same spot as it is a mileage radius. Can you send me email with screenshots of both so I can have it looked at? Jelliott@load1.com

      From what I've seen so far the App's range seems to be a little larger then the QC pulling in a couple more units.

      One nice feature I really like is being able to get positions while on a load for different locations. QC would never give me this information while on a load. Always nice for planning ahead :)

      Should be the same, but the qcomm is based on a zip where the app is a touch point so could get a little variable there I would think.

      Doing some testing. We think it is an air miles vs practical miles issue between the two.

      Ok that was it. We switched it to practical miles now. Should be matching!

      I would have thought that issue would have been addressed before roll out.
