    I'm curious to know from those who have both PrePass & Drivewyze how often do you get conflicting bypass lights? I've read that if one of them says to pull in you're supposed to pull in. What if you shut your GPS locator off of your smartphone that has Drivewyze? Will that prevent it from throwing a signal? I only really want Drivewyze for one location that PrePass does not offer but it really burns me up that they pull in all the trucks at this location even when they have their bays filled. Why not temporarily stop having trucks pull through until it's time to get the next inspection? Anyway, Drivewyze offers up this location and it would be great to just keep on rolling by. BTW, safety score and truck and trailer are top notch, just don't like having to roll through at 5mph for no reason.

    I had Drivewyze andvthen later the company added Pre-Pass. I get conflicts all of the time. Both PP & D say if you have both systems you must obey the Go-in signal. I know Drivewyze pamphlet says if you are using both systems you should use the DriveWyze device that cooperates withh PP or you may get conflicting signals.

    Some outlaw told me when the systems conflict follow whichever gives you a bypass. If your Pre-Pass is attached to the wind shield and it gives you a bypass but DriveWyze says go in the only way anyone will know you have DriveWyze is if you volunteer the info. The PP will still blink green for 10 minutes and the cop can see it.

    It's extremely unlikely you will be chased down if at least one system gives you a bypass. If you are chased down, show them the system that gave you a green light and act suprised when they ask about the other system.

    Drivewyze requires your truck info.

    I don't remember if it asks for mc.
    I know it wants your dot and a pic of your license plate.

    It did couple years ago anyways.

    I can't even remember my last PrePass pull in so I would probably shut my phone off when nearing a PP location so the Drivewyze doesn't even trigger, but that one location I mentioned I would love to get by it with the Drivewyze.

    Why not say the location man? No need for the cloak and dagger its not like a customer with good loads we would try and steal.

    All bays full.. Always get pulled in.. 5mph sounds like Banning scales.
    I am going to assume unless told different.

    What else ticks me off is sometimes they have zero trucks in the inspection lanes and they are all sitting in their pickup trucks not even watching the slow line of trucks coming through.

    I don't think nevada has actual passes. For any system.

    But I could be wrong.

    Drivewyze didn't work.
