    It was a great app when it first came out. But it's now full of ads and its soooooo slow to load to show the nearest places are now. Anybody know a better app for scales and parking etc.?

    Use Blokada app if you have Android to block ads

    I agree it's gotten worse. I would pay a reasonable fee for the app with no ads, a few bucks....once. I don't dig the crazy prices for all kinds of add ons I don't need like navigation, etc.

    Also, I think it would be great if someone actually moderated the reviews on these types of apps. Stupid drivers will go to the trouble to add a review saying something like 'It's 3 am, any spots left there guys?"

    WTF? The review will be there forever, it isn't a help line.

    I only use it for scale houses and it’s usually 95% right for me.

    Yeah, it was awesome when it was released and free back in 2016. It seems to have gotten worse and worse. So many bells and whistles that you don’t even need. Parking updates, scale predictions, and truckstop or rest area ratings/ reviews are all I care to look at.
