It is no secret that mobile phones have changed the way truckers operate. We, at 5th Wheel Hub, believe these are the best truck driver apps that will make your job easier (and safer).

We put together a list of the top "must-have" apps for Truck Drivers.

We were impressed that this app has over a million users and it has it all! On Trucker Path you have Navigation, parking, fuel prices, weight stations all over US and Canada. The GPS will mark routes that are specific for you truck height, width, weight, and type.

The developers seem to be quick to respond to negative reviews and make an effort to fix any bugs or problems found by the users.
