    What is the best trucker GPS app for my phone? I've been using the Garmin Diezel and its great but I'm tired of hauling it from truck to truck and want the convenience of using my phone.

    I downloaded this Hammer app. Seems pretty good but I'll have to take it for a test ride to find out.

    Hammer is pretty decent. I'm trying a bunch of them out currently, I'm leaning towards SmartTruckRoute2.

    It looks like Smart Truck Route 2 costs money. Is it worth it?

    I have the Hammer app on my iPhone. I usually rely on a combo. The Hammer app, Google, my RM Atlas and a RM740. I first check my route in the RM Atlas to preplan. Then I compare it with Hammer and Google. I then punch it in to my 740. Usually run using the 740 but have my IPhone close at hand. So far works pretty good. I’ve found that if I shut down my 740 when not running has helped. Keeping my fingers crossed. Still have used Google a couple of times when I’ve gotten close. Especially the Satellite view. The most important thing is to preplan so you have a good idea before you leave.
