SAN JOSE, CALIFORNIA -- (Marketwire) -- 09/13/12 -- Drivewyze Inc., provider of Drivewyze(TM) PreClear, a commercial vehicle bypass service for truckers, today announced expanded support for Apple, Samsung and ZTE tablet computers. Unlike other bypass programs that require dedicated transponders in every truck, the affordable Drivewyze PreClear service works through a hands-free app to deliver a convenient, safe and secure automated bypass solution for all inspection sites. Using this approach, Drivewyze PreClear brings bypass opportunities for the first time to temporary mobile inspection sites as well as local, low-volume and remote weigh stations and ports of entry.
"We are seeing fleets as well as individual drivers adding tablets into the in-cab technology mix for GPS and fleet management tasks," said Brian Mofford, Vice President of Drivewyze. "Drivewyze PreClear already works with a wide variety of smartphones. We are excited to make it available for tablet users as well, to provide hands-free simplicity to help drivers stay safe and legal while providing bypass opportunities."
A recent Journal of Commerce article reported that 86 percent of truck drivers already have a mobile device, with 44 percent owning a smartphone or tablet device.(1) More trucking companies are using smartphones and tablets to deploy systems once run solely on proprietary in-cab devices or desktop computers.
Drivewyze PreClear can now operate on the following tablet devices: Apple iPad 2, Apple iPad 3, Samsung Galaxy Tab 7.0 and ZTE Optik. The tablets are in addition to the current availability of the application on Android, BlackBerry and iPhone smartphones. Drivewyze PreClear service is offered in the following states: Connecticut, Kentucky, Maine, Maryland, Minnesota, Mississippi, New Hampshire, Pennsylvania, Tennessee, Vermont, Virginia & West Virginia, with several more states and Canadian provinces coming soon.
