    Thanks to the many TruckersReport community members who lent a hand during the past 3 months of beta testing, HAMMER is now available!

    Your feedback guided big advancements in every aspect of our development: features, stability, performance and design. Our work is far from finished, as we have new updates scheduled to launch every 2-3 weeks for the foreseeable future to add even more of the features and improvements you suggested.

    I've added this forum to keep the lines of communication open between the community, support staff and developers. Your participation has been tremendous, and we are eager for your involvement in continuing to develop Hammer.

    Note to Android BETA testers: the Play store is a little weird about converting you from the beta to the version we just launched. You should delete the app you downloaded during Beta from your phone and download the new version from the Play store: Download HAMMER on Android

    Hammer is a free GPS navigation app that provides truck-safe routing and turn-by-turn navigation for iOS and Android on phones and tablets. Download Now!

    I downloaded it and tried it. Had a very simple route to run. US231 south to I70 west. It wanted me to take little county roads for miles. I went my way and it kept telling me to make a u turn. At one point it wanted me to cross under 70 and make a u turn to go back to a little county road. I turned it off. I’m wondering if I set it up wrong.

    I tested it for a while and for some reason it’s routes matched that of google or RM but calculated the route to take several hours longer... got very confusing that it kept trying to reroute me on its planned route...
     
    Doealex and mitrucker Thank this.
