Had to download this app for a load. Less than 24 hours later my apple account is accessed and purchases made on my account. I have not made a purchase on apple account in over a year. Pretty suspicious to me. User beware. Deleting app!
Zero Privacy
by JS909 on 2021/11/05 17:23
This is the worst site when comes to sharing your information with other people. They share with other brokers your company information and locations. You get junk emails about loads everyday. There is no place to opt out and no one ever contacts you back. This is a scam and should be banned. Apple needs to remove this app because of privacy violations. What a joke and garbage company.

I don’t think the app deserves 5 stars simply because of the automation of location that is considered and marked as arrived prior to driver manual marking it as arrived. Also it has no interface to send msg to customers or brokers concerning problems encountered during load.

I stated I was at the destination and I was still getting text messages asking for my location for a day and a half. If I said I was at the destination that should tell them where I’m at. I only had to use this one time it was already a disappointment

Confused
by excalibur Rob on 2021/08/16 16:41
Why does location have to be on. If all I’m doing is checking for load assignments. Maybe at that time I don’t want the noseyness of a broker knowing where I’m at. So riddle me that

Annoying
by Lawless_The_Expendable on 2021/08/06 17:23
Every trucking company known to man has gps on their trucks. So why im forced to download this stupid app which runs in the background draining my battery by every broker is beyond me. All because a broker is too lazy to pick up the phone, and just simply ask the company where you’re at. Good grief, as if brokers weren’t annoying enough already. Oh FYI, they still call you non stop anyways 🤦🏻‍♂️.

Fairly the best
by RodKnockerjd on 2021/04/21 18:17
I've a complaint that may pertain to a few locations or 1. There's a shipper (water near Sara/ Reno Rd) in Oklahoma that uses this and it sits between or near Yukon & Oklahoma City. The issue is the distance it AUTO tracks updates arrival and departure. One can go a mile or more near shipper and it'll show arrived and or departed even if you're not going to shipper because it's not time. Also the signal (because of AUTO) bounces between Yukon and Okc cell towers which causes AUTO issues. And the bad part is the "tracking" teams who can't change this to manual inputs will get excited / worried and use their screens to electronically harass a driver/ dispatcher. They'll call or text excessively even tho this tracking system is said to reduce contact. So no matter when you arrive on time or depart, the "system" has auto stated something that isn't always the case.

Privacy concerns
by PrivacyIsKing on 2020/11/23 16:38
Going to be honest with you here. The app works as advertised but I seriously do not like having to download this app onto my personal device in order to complete a load. Every time I have a load that requires me to use the app I only download it when I am actively delivering the load and immediately delete the app afterwards. I feel it is incredibly invasive to have this app on my PERSONAL device. What information does the app have privileges to? My phone contains private data that the app is not clear on whether or not it has access to (financial records, personal pictures/videos, contacts, call/text records, etc.) There should be an opt out option available but apparently I’ll be fined if I don’t download this invasive application on my phone. I am a company driver, my job does not pay my cell phone bill. This is not a “work” phone device. I’m honestly questioning the legality of such a system.

Update 2 from last review
by Charloooskiii on 2020/09/10 03:23
To my surprise I received an email by macro point how to update when we want to in the app that was great advise thank you hopefully they can work on the layout and ease of use. After using the app on 09-08-2020 we tried to do update manually as it was suggested by Macropoint and unfortunately did not update and we even tried several times thru different cities and still did not show updated location. It just updates on its own when it wants to. Best apps that update instantly from experience is CH ROBINSON driver app and CONVOY INC. They update instantly.

Turn off tracking after you deliver
by Userkja on 2020/08/26 15:36
There is no need for this app to have “always” access to your location. Once you deliver either delete the app or turn off the location access. They use this to drive down rates. If they know exactly how many trucks are in a given area they will lower the rates. DONT HAUL CHEAP FREIGHT.

Can’t give any stars to the app .. had to give it one star or it would not let me post this . Was told by the broker I had to download the app and that when I delivered the load and sent the information off the tracking would stop .. it didn’t stop.

As a driver, this app is neutral. It's potential is better than it works. I must switch between 3-4 apps just to manage my time and workflow. This is onerous for one who should be concentrating on the surroundings. I don't like that your active load has to refresh every time I switch between this and other apps, necessitating attention and screen clicks. Another pain is that there is no simple way to release a load if it is no longer my responsibility to service. That has to be done with inconvenient phone calls.

by Miss my droid on 2016/09/14 17:18
Once it is downloaded a broker need only shoot me a text. The text integrates with MacroPoint immediately allowing them to track me at all times. When I arrive and empty or load a trailer I just push a button. All liability is on the driver. State and federal laws against texting and driving apply. Even if I do not have the app MacroPoint can still track my phone via cell towers.

Carrier review
by 98568566 on 2019/02/07 19:53
As a carrier I am providing overall review of the app for multiple trucks we use this with. Very unreliable. Works flawlessly maybe 1 in every 4 times we set it up to track. Those aren’t good numbers. Often we are having drivers reset their phones and the app or reinstall the app all together. It sometimes will not integrate with Our customers system to provide them updates. Their customer service is very poor and either doesn’t respond to an issue or takes days to respond and then provides no real solution or fix. They seem to only be interested in charging carriers a monthly service fee for a service that is 25% reliable at best. Frankly I’m surprised they are still in business.

by Three-Legged Midget on 2020/03/20 15:40
Sirs: I was told I needed to get and install MacroPoint for a load I was going to haul. So I did. It apparently worked as advertised. Then I wanted to shut off the continuous tracking. No can do. So I deleted the app. Where I am is nobody’s business unless I have their load in my trailer, and then it’s where their load is located. I used to get robo and other miscellaneous calls before limiting outside access to my accounts and numbers. Please respect my privacy and remove the continuous tracking requirement from your app, or at least let us option out.
Doesn’t work most of the time!!!
by mrlodomik on 2019/03/27 18:16
After you guys updated it and changed it, it no longer works like it used to. Now I get multiple text messages saying I have to share my location even after I’ve already done that! On one load I received 11 text messages over the course of two days saying I needed to share my location even though it showed I was all set! One driver was even docked pay from the broker because he didn’t share his location even though he did and the app said he was all set! Also why is it draining my battery so fast!!? Get it together people!!! Fix your damned app!

by Milan-former fan of the game on 2019/12/10 01:18
Good application, finally works with iPhone XS. However, you need to do something with current version. It keeps crashing every time when you try to look at active load details or view location history, something is messed up there.
Location access

There’s no reason this app should only work when the location access is set to always. It should work when the location access is set to “only when in use”. I do not use this app for every load, and it does not need my location when I am not under a load requiring it; it is an invasion of privacy and drains my battery. Fix this feature and I’ll consider editing to a more favorable review.
Always crashing
by track master damie on 2020/03/03 16:30
This app can not stay open for more that one minute before in crashes. U are never able to see ur history or check address using this app cause in crashes in a matter of seconds after you open in. They need to fix what even is cause That. Is there any fix to this I tried opening the section that allows u to upload a pod and it crash before I can even make a selection
Error 502 Bad Gateway.... that’s about right.
by Andrew 4 on 2020/01/28 19:51
I really hate when customers ask me to use this app. I have tried multiple times to delete and redownload the app, different iPads and even on my iPhone. All results are failures and usually get “Error 502: Bad Gateway” when it does do something other than just sit there. And that’s with the “Invade my privacy” setting set to always allow instead of a reasonable only when in use.
Zero Privacy
by JS909 on 2021/11/05 17:23
This is the worst site when comes to sharing your information with other people. They share with other brokers your company information and locations. You get junk emails about loads everyday. There is no place to opt out and no one ever contacts you back. This is a scam and should be banned. Apple needs to remove this app because of privacy violations. What a joke and garbage company.
Was skeptical
by dcdrennen on 2020/09/08 04:44
I’ve used this app before, and it just jammed me up and froze. This time, no problems. Very pleased... keep up the good work team, we re all in this together to get the job done.. Thanks, Dennis
Please fix it

Doesn’t allow number to be edited
by mwilcoxk9 on 2021/08/03 14:48
I use grasshopper as my business cell number. Loads don’t show up and don’t have a way to edit number it pulls info from. Calling them is an auto response with no option to talk to someone. Submitted feedback within app. Shows blank white space as typing so can’t see what’s being typed or if it’s saving info being sent.
CH Robinson Worldwide stopped using this
by PoppinsOTR on 2021/09/09 04:04
It was fine until Brokers stopped using this app. There I was all set to use this app, I was talking with the CH Robinson person and she told me that they were not using this app anymore. Something about Drivers App, I am not familiar with the new one that they are using.
Annoying
by Lawless_The_Expendable on 2021/08/06 17:23
Every trucking company known to man has gps on their trucks. So why im forced to download this stupid app which runs in the background draining my battery by every broker is beyond me. All because a broker is too lazy to pick up the phone, and just simply ask the company where you’re at. Good grief, as if brokers weren’t annoying enough already. Oh FYI, they still call you non stop anyways 🤦🏻‍♂️.
Working app
by Sharon/ Les on 2021/04/12 20:56

App doesn’t work
by Alethcar on 2019/09/05 19:42
I have had to download this app multiple times. It does not work properly 9 out of 10 times. It gets stuck on the sweepstakes and won’t show the load info. I am tired of this y’all need to fix it. It has been happening for about 8 months now. Do something or tell the brokers it doesn’t work so they will use something that does!!!

This is really useless not good at all have been on several broker loads that wanted me to have this app on my phone it only displays the brokers name and load number does not look like anything of the pictures and description of this app unlike my other app CarrierLink has everything displayed and all information needed so what is wrong with micro point app
Kills Phone battery to quickly
by David Truong on 2017/02/03 13:04
Great app but it drains my phone battery too quickly, lose about 20% every 30-45 mins on new iPhone 7 Plus with iOS 10.2.1 this app needs to be updated before I will download it again. They cannot track you by text message, only by using the app.
Truck Driver
by Ryanlee79 on 2021/10/13 15:03
I don’t think the app deserves 5 stars simply because of the automation of location that is considered and marked as arrived prior to driver manual marking it as arrived. Also it has no interface to send msg to customers or brokers concerning problems encountered during load.
Brokers bad, but doesn’t take much space
by GibbsfreeE on 2020/05/15 20:47
This app is helping brokers control the rates! 3 stars because it didn’t take up my data and was only 10mb. If it was more I would’ve gave it 1 star. Brokers are killing us using these technology.
Turn off tracking after you deliver
by Userkja on 2020/08/26 15:36
There is no need for this app to have “always” access to your location. Once you deliver either delete the app or turn off the location access. They use this to drive down rates. If they know exactly how many trucks are in a given area they will lower the rates. DONT HAUL CHEAP FREIGHT.

by owner of RRT on 2019/12/04 19:29
Love the app but we need to be able to send an explanation text sometimes along with our arrival and departure times “very important “
Kiss your battery goodbye.
by libscantdebate on 2019/10/24 16:14
Previously I could have it set to track only when using the app so I could open it a few times a day and update my location, now the app forces you to “always allow” which kills my battery. I would delete this app completely if I could. Only DL if you have no choice
From the drivers
by trucka tee 111 on 2021/08/09 13:43
I’m not sure why they would have us download the app and check our location and still call and also still text it’s very rude and unprofessional texting and calling and Driver when you know that they are driving it’s annoyingAnd completely unsafe
Clashes with other apps
by Boltman1960 on 2019/07/31 18:52
I keep trying this app but it just functions poorly. Apparently the only way it wants to run is always allow for location. That eats your battery. Then when I run trucker path or the travel America app they will not function while this MacroPoint is running. So thanks but no thanks I am done with this app.

Tracking Drivers is Crap!!!
by pitbull66 on 2019/11/15 15:28
Being tracked at all times is total BS! All pee need to do is call to verify. I refuse to use this app. Drivers need to start coming together as everyone is trying to get their hands on how we should do our job and always wanting to micro manage. I still get great loads without this garbage!
Should be illegal to use
by Exec100 on 2020/02/19 18:23
As if a driver doesn’t have enough to do to make sure he is being safe and protecting the public from accidents. This garbage should be outlawed! Don’t send me texts, notifications, or anything. Let me focus on doing my job safely! Someone needs to write congress. States are outlawing cells phones in cars for a reason.
Glad I don’t rely on this
by effie the don on 2021/10/04 16:08

Owner operator review
by idon'thavefukignickname on 2019/04/13 02:03
Broker keep calling and asking me to set it on. I had accept to receive tracking, but seems it doesn’t work. Doesn’t help to build trust in our business. On second hand. I can’t know who can keep on track on me after accepting lots of requests. I want to be able see all info. You guys need to fix it.
App lies
by Slopolito on 2020/03/26 12:24
This app tracks you even if your not on a load, I had a notification pop up that even before I was accepted to the load 2 days before it was tracking me at my house. Don’t download if your carrier asks it’s a setup and you have to reboot your phone from scratch

by RodKnockerjd on 2021/04/21 18:17
I've a complaint that may pertain to a few locations or 1. There's a shipper (water near Sara/ Reno Rd) in Oklahoma that uses this and it sits between or near Yukon & Oklahoma City. The issue is the distance it AUTO tracks updates arrival and departure. One can go a mile or more near shipper and it'll show arrived and or departed even if you're not going to shipper because it's not time. Also the signal (because of AUTO) bounces between Yukon and Okc cell towers which causes AUTO issues. And the bad part is the "tracking" teams who can't change this to manual inputs will get excited / worried and use their screens to electronically harass a driver/ dispatcher. They'll call or text excessively even tho this tracking system is said to reduce contact. So no matter when you arrive on time or depart, the "system" has auto stated something that isn't always the case.

Privacy concerns
by PrivacyIsKing on 2020/11/23 16:38
Going to be honest with you here. The app works as advertised but I seriously do not like having to download this app onto my personal device in order to complete a load. Every time I have a load that requires me to use the app I only download it when I am actively delivering the load and immediately delete the app afterwards. I feel it is incredibly invasive to have this app on my PERSONAL device. What information does the app have privileges to? My phone contains private data that the app is not clear on whether or not it has access to (financial records, personal pictures/videos, contacts, call/text records, etc.) There should be an opt out option available but apparently I’ll be fined if I don’t download this invasive application on my phone. I am a company driver, my job does not pay my cell phone bill. This is not a “work” phone device. I’m honestly questioning the legality of such a system.
Please fix it

Tracking
by Scatter Brain 20/20 on 2020/10/03 18:25
I’d rather have this then have the phone calls all day.
The app does not update the location !!!!!
by dhirvhujf on 2020/09/24 04:51
Very bad!!!!!!
Why can’t they be honest!!
by trker4trump on 2020/09/11 20:22
As soon as I put in my cell for tracking I started getting unsolicited text for trucking jobs! Why can’t these app developers actually make an app that doesn’t sell your info?!
Update 2 from last review
by Charloooskiii on 2020/09/10 03:23
To my surprise I received an email by macro point how to update when we want to in the app that was great advise thank you hopefully they can work on the layout and ease of use. After using the app on 09-08-2020 we tried to do update manually as it was suggested by Macropoint and unfortunately did not update and we even tried several times thru different cities and still did not show updated location. It just updates on its own when it wants to. Best apps that update instantly from experience is CH ROBINSON driver app and CONVOY INC. They update instantly.
Was skeptical
by dcdrennen on 2020/09/08 04:44
I’ve used this app before, and it just jammed me up and froze. This time, no problems. Very pleased... keep up the good work team, we re all in this together to get the job done.. Thanks, Dennis

App won’t open. It crashes within a second.
by Tololololololololo on 2020/08/28 14:31
I have an iPhone. It’s in an iOS app. I have downloaded, updated, deleted, reset my phone, restart my phone, downloading it again. It JUST won’t open. It opens and shuts right away. It is 08/28/2020 and it’s the 5th time I have to tell a broker I can’t use this app so I have to give manual updates. App is unusable.
Great app

Tracking
by Jim Clean on 2020/08/27 14:52
Really tracking apps are useless driver downloads the app what’s being tracked is the drivers location not the load actually, if driver goes to bathroom he’s not with the truck, if driver parks the truck and goes to visit family and truck is at truck stop what is the app tracking only driver location not the trailer we’re the load is actually located hopefully with the power unit, also brokers still call driver irritating them because the app lags so brokers will call still asking drivers location ask me how I know...
Turn off tracking after you deliver
by Userkja on 2020/08/26 15:36
There is no need for this app to have “always” access to your location. Once you deliver either delete the app or turn off the location access. They use this to drive down rates. If they know exactly how many trucks are in a given area they will lower the rates. DONT HAUL CHEAP FREIGHT.

Why they track my phone?
by Jivangill on 2020/08/13 14:01
Why brokers need to track my phone? Sometimes I have to deliver on Monday and I reach home on Saturday they track all my locations even when I am at home.
Pain in the ass
by bigtrucktaz on 2020/08/08 06:41
Had to use this app for a load . Was told I could delete the app and it would not track me when I was done with the load .. after I got done and deleted the app from my phone I keeped getting messages from the broker and the app Saying I need to download the app and it need my gps loc all the time.. Can’t give any stars to the app .. had to give it one star or it would not let me post this . Was told by the broker I had to download the app and that when I delivered the load and sent the information off the tracking would stop .. it didn’t stop.
Drains battery 2 much
by This Mug on 2020/08/03 18:45
I have to download this app as requested by my supervisor. It’s crazy on I went from 60% to 10% battery life. This is why I don’t like using it.

Not great, not awful
by ?driver? on 2020/05/22 17:09
As a driver, this app is neutral. It's potential is better than it works. I must switch between 3-4 apps just to manage my time and workflow. This is onerous for one who should be concentrating on the surroundings. I don't like that your active load has to refresh every time I switch between this and other apps, necessitating attention and screen clicks. Another pain is that there is no simple way to release a load if it is no longer my responsibility to service. That has to be done with inconvenient phone calls.
Disruptive
by forcejunkie1 on 2020/05/20 12:21
This app is disruptive and counterproductive in freight management. It uses up my cell phone time and costs more than it’s worth. I would not use thus app if it were my company
Brokers bad, but doesn’t take much space
by GibbsfreeE on 2020/05/15 20:47
This app is helping brokers control the rates! 3 stars because it didn’t take up my data and was only 10mb. If it was more I would’ve gave it 1 star. Brokers are killing us using these technology.
Sometimes it doesn’t work
by trukerbill on 2020/05/11 20:47

Have to re install every time
by Fynbos scuff on 2020/04/28 18:00
Every time I get a new load I have to delete and reinstall this app for it to work! Very annoying!
STOP SENDING ME MESSAGES
by ArtJeck on 2020/04/22 17:13
Stop to send me messages every day to download this stupid app. I’m not going to share my location with you anyway. This is so annoying.
Works great for me.
by Miss my droid on 2016/09/14 17:18
Once it is downloaded a broker need only shoot me a text. The text integrates with MacroPoint immediately allowing them to track me at all times. When I arrive and empty or load a trailer I just push a button. All liability is on the driver. State and federal laws against texting and driving apply. Even if I do not have the app MacroPoint can still track my phone via cell towers.
Fairly the best
by RodKnockerjd on 2021/04/21 18:17
I've a complaint that may pertain to a few locations or 1. There's a shipper (water near Sara/ Reno Rd) in Oklahoma that uses this and it sits between or near Yukon & Oklahoma City. The issue is the distance it AUTO tracks updates arrival and departure. One can go a mile or more near shipper and it'll show arrived and or departed even if you're not going to shipper because it's not time. Also the signal (because of AUTO) bounces between Yukon and Okc cell towers which causes AUTO issues. And the bad part is the "tracking" teams who can't change this to manual inputs will get excited / worried and use their screens to electronically harass a driver/ dispatcher. They'll call or text excessively even tho this tracking system is said to reduce contact. So no matter when you arrive on time or depart, the "system" has auto stated something that isn't always the case.
Privacy concerns
by PrivacyIsKing on 2020/11/23 16:38
Going to be honest with you here. The app works as advertised but I seriously do not like having to download this app onto my personal device in order to complete a load. Every time I have a load that requires me to use the app I only download it when I am actively delivering the load and immediately delete the app afterwards. I feel it is incredibly invasive to have this app on my PERSONAL device. What information does the app have privileges to? My phone contains private data that the app is not clear on whether or not it has access to (financial records, personal pictures/videos, contacts, call/text records, etc.) There should be an opt out option available but apparently I’ll be fined if I don’t download this invasive application on my phone. I am a company driver, my job does not pay my cell phone bill. This is not a “work” phone device. I’m honestly questioning the legality of such a system.
Carrier review
by 98568566 on 2019/02/07 19:53
As a carrier I am providing overall review of the app for multiple trucks we use this with. Very unreliable. Works flawlessly maybe 1 in every 4 times we set it up to track. Those aren’t good numbers. Often we are having drivers reset their phones and the app or reinstall the app all together. It sometimes will not integrate with Our customers system to provide them updates. Their customer service is very poor and either doesn’t respond to an issue or takes days to respond and then provides no real solution or fix. They seem to only be interested in charging carriers a monthly service fee for a service that is 25% reliable at best. Frankly I’m surprised they are still in business.

by Three-Legged Midget on 2020/03/20 15:40
Sirs: I was told I needed to get and install MacroPoint for a load I was going to haul. So I did. It apparently worked as advertised. Then I wanted to shut off the continuous tracking. No can do. So I deleted the app. Where I am is nobody’s business unless I have their load in my trailer, and then it’s where their load is located. I used to get robo and other miscellaneous calls before limiting outside access to my accounts and numbers. Please respect my privacy and remove the continuous tracking requirement from your app, or at least let us option out.
Doesn’t work most of the time!!!
by mrlodomik on 2019/03/27 18:16
After you guys updated it and changed it, it no longer works like it used to. Now I get multiple text messages saying I have to share my location even after I’ve already done that! On one load I received 11 text messages over the course of two days saying I needed to share my location even though it showed I was all set! One driver was even docked pay from the broker because he didn’t share his location even though he did and the app said he was all set! Also why is it draining my battery so fast!!? Get it together people!!! Fix your damned app!
Convenient
by TruckinLatinaHeat on 2021/02/10 13:14
Less check calls from brokers . Some brokerage firms . Still haven’t got onboard with MacroPoint. . And they still call , and after you do tell broker your current location.. they don’t make a memo ., and another assistant/ broker will call you 5 min later .

Keeps crashing every 5-10 seconds
by Milan-former fan of the game on 2019/12/10 01:18
Good application, finally works with iPhone XS. However, you need to do something with current version. It keeps crashing every time when you try to look at active load details or view location history, something is messed up there.
Location access
by leswoyer on 2019/05/13 03:54
There’s no reason this app should only work when the location access is set to always. It should work when the location access is set to “only when in use”. I do not use this app for every load, and it does not need my location when I am not under a load requiring it; it is an invasion of privacy and drains my battery. Fix this feature and I’ll consider editing to a more favorable review.
Always crashing
by track master damie on 2020/03/03 16:30
This app can not stay open for more that one minute before in crashes. U are never able to see ur history or check address using this app cause in crashes in a matter of seconds after you open in. They need to fix what even is cause That. Is there any fix to this I tried opening the section that allows u to upload a pod and it crash before I can even make a selection
Error 502 Bad Gateway.... that’s about right.
by Andrew 4 on 2020/01/28 19:51
I really hate when customers ask me to use this app. I have tried multiple times to delete and redownload the app, different iPads and even on my iPhone. All results are failures and usually get “Error 502: Bad Gateway” when it does do something other than just sit there. And that’s with the “Invade my privacy” setting set to always allow instead of a reasonable only when in use.
Zero Privacy
by JS909 on 2021/11/05 17:23
This is the worst site when comes to sharing your information with other people. They share with other brokers your company information and locations. You get junk emails about loads everyday. There is no place to opt out and no one ever contacts you back. This is a scam and should be banned. Apple needs to remove this app because of privacy violations. What a joke and garbage company.

by mwilcoxk9 on 2021/08/03 14:48
I use grasshopper as my business cell number. Loads don’t show up and don’t have a way to edit number it pulls info from. Calling them is an auto response with no option to talk to someone. Submitted feedback within app. Shows blank white space as typing so can’t see what’s being typed or if it’s saving info being sent.
CH Robinson Worldwide stopped using this
by PoppinsOTR on 2021/09/09 04:04
It was fine until Brokers stopped using this app. There I was all set to use this app, I was talking with the CH Robinson person and she told me that they were not using this app anymore. Something about Drivers App, I am not familiar with the new one that they are using.
Annoying
by Lawless_The_Expendable on 2021/08/06 17:23
Every trucking company known to man has gps on their trucks. So why im forced to download this stupid app which runs in the background draining my battery by every broker is beyond me. All because a broker is too lazy to pick up the phone, and just simply ask the company where you’re at. Good grief, as if brokers weren’t annoying enough already. Oh FYI, they still call you non stop anyways 🤦🏻‍♂️.
Working app
by Sharon/ Les on 2021/04/12 20:56

App doesn’t work
by Alethcar on 2019/09/05 19:42
I have had to download this app multiple times. It does not work properly 9 out of 10 times. It gets stuck on the sweepstakes and won’t show the load info. I am tired of this y’all need to fix it. It has been happening for about 8 months now. Do something or tell the brokers it doesn’t work so they will use something that does!!!

This is really useless not good at all have been on several broker loads that wanted me to have this app on my phone it only displays the brokers name and load number does not look like anything of the pictures and description of this app unlike my other app CarrierLink has everything displayed and all information needed so what is wrong with micro point app
Kills Phone battery to quickly
by David Truong on 2017/02/03 13:04
Great app but it drains my phone battery too quickly, lose about 20% every 30-45 mins on new iPhone 7 Plus with iOS 10.2.1 this app needs to be updated before I will download it again. They cannot track you by text message, only by using the app.
Truck Driver
by Ryanlee79 on 2021/10/13 15:03
I don’t think the app deserves 5 stars simply because of the automation of location that is considered and marked as arrived prior to driver manual marking it as arrived. Also it has no interface to send msg to customers or brokers concerning problems encountered during load.

Kiss your battery goodbye.
by libscantdebate on 2019/10/24 16:14
Previously I could have it set to track only when using the app so I could open it a few times a day and update my location, now the app forces you to “always allow” which kills my battery. I would delete this app completely if I could. Only DL if you have no choice
From the drivers
by trucka tee 111 on 2021/08/09 13:43
I’m not sure why they would have us download the app and check our location and still call and also still text it’s very rude and unprofessional texting and calling and Driver when you know that they are driving it’s annoyingAnd completely unsafe
Clashes with other apps
by Boltman1960 on 2019/07/31 18:52
I keep trying this app but it just functions poorly. Apparently the only way it wants to run is always allow for location. That eats your battery. Then when I run trucker path or the travel America app they will not function while this MacroPoint is running. So thanks but no thanks I am done with this app.

I download this app for years. Never fails my phone drops calls and I don't get text messages like I should. Call the phone service to have my phone over the air provosioned and a restart n the device itself. Just buy a crap phone to download this on and all will be good.
Tracking Drivers is Crap!!!
by pitbull66 on 2019/11/15 15:28
Being tracked at all times is total BS! All pee need to do is call to verify. I refuse to use this app. Drivers need to start coming together as everyone is trying to get their hands on how we should do our job and always wanting to micro manage. I still get great loads without this garbage!
Should be illegal to use
by Exec100 on 2020/02/19 18:23
As if a driver doesn’t have enough to do to make sure he is being safe and protecting the public from accidents. This garbage should be outlawed! Don’t send me texts, notifications, or anything. Let me focus on doing my job safely! Someone needs to write congress. States are outlawing cells phones in cars for a reason.

I can’t know who can keep on track on me after accepting lots of requests. I want to be able see all info. You guys need to fix it.
App lies
by Slopolito on 2020/03/26 12:24
This app tracks you even if your not on a load, I had a notification pop up that even before I was accepted to the load 2 days before it was tracking me at my house. Don’t download if your carrier asks it’s a setup and you have to reboot your phone from scratch

I hate this #1 kills battery #2 tracks every move you make if brokers that worried call my dispatch the eld with gps can tell them what's going on and # 3 if I drop load and another driver takes it to the receiver it's still tracking me no way to clear out load info unless you complete it or delete it
Don’t use
by Winey girl on 2021/11/11 17:51
Had to download this app for a load. Less than 24 hours later my apple account is accessed and purchases made on my account. I have not made a purchase on apple account in over a year. Pretty suspicious to me. User beware. Deleting app!
