Mobile app that automatically detects and logs tolls, released for U.S. market, helping Orange County road users track their toll expenses.
Pretoria, South Africa -- (ReleaseWire) -- 05/13/2014 --Today TollTrack announced the immediate availability of TollTrack USA for iOS, the app that offers US Toll Road users the convenience of automatically tracking and logging their toll costs using their smart phone’s built-in GPS.
On May 14 2014, The Orange County Toll Roads cash toll collections end, by way of overhead gantries and a cashless system. TollTrack is a valuable tool in managing these and other toll expenses, by way of automatically tracking and logging toll costs incurred as they drive these routes.
The user does a once-off initial setup on their device of choice, by saving the vehicle and payment type before pressing the start button to initiate automatic gantry detection.
Whilst driving, TollTrack notifies the driver of gantries passed, displaying the description, calculated toll cost and the applicable discount, whilst saving all the relevant data to a log.
Once done tracking, the user can access a detailed log screen displaying all gantries and costs, arranged by month and toll type.
The route planner and cost calculator allows users to plan trips and determine toll costs in advance using an easy to use map interface. A handy trip computer saves trip data for later reference. The trip view screen displays a map of the route travelled as well as travel distance and time. Exporting allows users to save detailed trip and log data via email for record keeping purposes.
The TollTrack USA edition currently supports gantries on the Orange County, California Toll Roads covering the 73, 133, 241 and 261 tolled roads. Additional support will be added to various other regions and toll systems in future updates.
