New truck driver weather app combines weather, radar, traffic

Snapshots of the Trucking Weather & Traffic app show a range of available functions.

One app for weather. Another for radar. Another for traffic and road conditions. That’s how it used to be.

A new truck driver weather app — the Trucking Weather & Traffic app — puts all these features and more together, making it one of the 12 best trucker apps.

My Driver Tools launched the app a few months ago, and it’s available for download in the App Store and Google Play Store on phones and tablets. It’s free, and averages a 4.8-star rating through its first 50 reviews.

The Trucking Weather and Traffic app features

The app is designed specifically for truck drivers, and it’s one of the only apps to combine traffic and weather.

Set up multiple custom locations to track forecasts, alerts and radar, including “follow me” to show the weather where you’re at. You can set up notifications for severe weather alerts and add the app as a widget on your phone home screen.
