    Have a weather map overlayed on the current driver map or toggle switch to change back and forth so we can see current weather to decide if it would be safe to take load offer.

    Unfortunately google maps dropped support for weather but we do have traffic.:( I can see if we can maybe get a separate weather map added.

    Even though you can look on Google maps, having a quick option for satellite view for a visual check of the shipper/receiver would be nice

    By the time this is done, this App will have everything including the kitchen sink, LOL. I do like all the suggestion!

    I do have a question, will this eventually have to where it shows live loads "available" and we pick the loads?

    That's one of the first things I requested. And they added it in like 2 minutes. On the map, the icon just below the 4 arrows.

    Most of our loads need to move and be booked pretty fast. Not sure if live loads available would really be a good tool. Have to ponder that one a bit.

    I can understand on the live loads that need to be moved now, was thinking on loads that maybe moved later on in the day or next day that we've already secure.

    Just found out my #1 favorite option in now available!
    Hit one button and...Go back in service from bed...then back to sleep ;)

    No more going out to the van, if at home or motel, or dragging my butt out of my nice warm bed waiting for the QC to boot up in the cold.

    Did I mention I don't have to get out of bed or bother dispatch lol.

    Yeah, I really like this one :)

    Is that the button on the settings page? Or is it sending a message on the message screen?

    Click the out of service bar on the main screen and it will give you the option.

    Clouds on the map need to be a little darker and a legend for the weather would be nice

    Well weather is a 3rd party integration so we can’t control all that. Might be clouds are darker for heavier clouds vs thinner cloud cover?

    I don’t see a out of service bar. I see a service status bar. When I touch it, it does nothing.
