Thanks.

Free is not q requirement!

Welcome to T Mobile, the throttling experts. Trust me, I too had T Mobile once upon a time, pre trucking.

AT&T or Straight Talk are your best options for service in my opinion.

I don't personally know of any free apps that do what you want, but that doesn't mean one doesn't exist somewhere. Good luck in your search. I use a Tom Tom.

Switch to Straight Talk for better coverage. T Mobile will have much less coverage.

I use Straight Talk and have only lost data once for a short time, was still able to make calls and text. It has very good coverage. It should considering they use other companies cell towers.

Seems amazing as all companies are supposed to roam on other networks. If ST gets a signal so should I with any other carrier. ATT once told me my roaming code was invalid or needed to be re-sent. Did not test in the problem area once done... finally blew them off.

FYI, best friend is seeing major drops in ATT coverage. Thinks they are selling off towers.

I have Verizon. My only issue with them, is throttling my Hotspot after 15 gigs..... And the price, but still worth it.

I shell for Verizon, have had them for nearly three years now. Pricy, but never have any problems except when I'm really out in the middle of nowhere. I don't use my hotspot at all though so I don't have to worry about that

While not a driver, I do a fair amount of traveling around the lower 48 and within my group of travel buddies, I'm the only one with Verizon and the only one that has a reliable signal nearly everywhere we go to include our annual run from copper mtn to Snowmass (w/ the exception going through the canyon) and the only reason why I continue to pay their high price...just damn reliable. Even get signal at the top of Independence Pass.

Completely agree. Extremely reliable, but you pay for it.

Swore I'd never do business with Verizon again after a strange and wonderful conversation...

Had a mobile hot spot... worked fine... wasn't using it for a while so I put it on hold. Thought that meant I didn't owe them anything. After a human started calling me daily I eventually found out they pro-rated the bill and I owed them $10.

When I asked "So a human being is calling me every day because I owe you $10 I didn't know I owe you?" the reply was: . . . . . "We'll call you every day for $5!"

Apple has 3 versions. A free version, a US/Canada and a US/Canada HD. The last two are $150, but it doesn't say what the difference is that I saw.

Android pricing for "premium" (trucking useful) features:

$9.99 / month, $99.95 / year.

I pay the monthly on the Copilot. Best navigation ever, short of an actual Rand McNally or Garmin. It is built from their navigation software that many companies already use.

There is a monthly option for Apple as well (same as Android pricing), but I don't like the subscription model for software. I prefer to buy it outright.
