About the project

Road Hunter was thought of as a solution for the truck drivers’ community to support their daily work. The app used to be a digital places of interest catalog and provided detailed information for every truck stop, including diesel prices, parking spaces, restaurants, and many other amenities. With time, Road Hunter became a beloved environment where truckers can easily find weigh stations, check their live status, use GPS avoiding low clearance bridges, find jobs, loads, and many more.

Challenges

Solutions

The first and the biggest challenge was to offer route navigation that could fit different user needs, considering the variety of vehicles and job peculiarities.

We have built custom in-app directions with the help of Google API and have integrated third-party map navigations that are available as options for selection. In-app directions provide the route from point A to point B with detailed instructions, whereas third-party services consider truck parameters when sending us the most optimal way for selected directions and open navigation maps within our app.

Another challenge was to provide quick access to the abundance of places of interest when opening the app.

Places of interest (POI) are shown within a certain radius of the user’s location, so the map is not overwhelmed by all points that exist in the database. Moreover, POI are stored in two databases, one of which is local that does not require processing backend requests each time the map is opened and drastically reduces the time to display elements on the map.
