    Some users are reporting scalehouses "closed" even though it's a just momentary closure to clear the exit ramp. Drivers need to take a good look to ascertain what is really happening before getting click happy

    DOT officers can install the app on their phones, too.

    I like that. It's live updating that gives me the opportunity to wait for them to close or go around them.
     
  5. anybody can install the app.
    anybody can use the app there's no passcode..
    used to be people would change the parking all the time.
    middle of the day 11:30 a.m. somebody puts down Walcott Iowa to the world's largest truck stop no parking.
    that's why I gave up on stupid trucker path too many idiots playing around with it not worth my time anymore..

    The nice thing about it is you have 3 status's. So you can get a better feel for open or close.

    The one that came out before it. I don't remember the name. Was a total joke.

    Scales that never close are always closed on the app. Same with scales that are never open.

    As mentioned though. EVERYONE can use the app. Which I could see the scales playing games when they're open. I can't see the sense on scales that are always closed.

    That is true but apart from isolated cases of very bored DOT officers, I would bet money the vast majority of false reports come from drivers.

    if you're running legal it doesn't matter if the scale is open or not anyway

    I find value in that app for trip planning my stops and the truckstop/weigh station reviews are very entertaining
