    Ok I stumbled across this by complete accident and was wondering is anyone using it or even heard of it??

    I could actually see this working as almost every driver has one of those devices.



    Of course some will now comment and say how they dont even own a tv lol

    Plus who wants their phone runnin an app all the time? From what I understood it woks in the states that don't take prepass... Wish they would just get on board and use prepass! We don't need more complication!

    The app doesnt have to run all the time. We all pretty much know when a coop is coming up, it would be as simple as hitting the icon on your phone to turn it on.
     
    Arkansas Frost Thanks this.

    It may not help if the scalemaster just turns off the system and brings all traffic in, like they frequently do with PrePass.


    And I have not had a TV in the truck since they went to digital broadcasting.

    As you I accidentally stumbled on the app. According to the product website info is encrypted so it doesn't record driving information. I think it's a cool tool to have only I have to be convinced that the device and the method used is legal form of bypass. I'd hate to find out by having a dot official hauling ##### even after getting the green light.

    the app comes bundled with bigroads.

    has anyone asked dot if it works and it's legal to use?????

    i could see a benefit to using drivewyze over prepass. you can at least shut your phone or tablet off.

    and it looks like it works on norpass systems also.
