Is a DOT portable scale 2 miles ahead? Scale Buster will tell you. Is a DOT "sting" waiting around the corner? Scale Buster will tell you. Is the Port of Entry open or closed? Scale Buster will tell you. Scale Buster is a USER-RUN application that harnesses the power of millions of drivers actively on the roads to watch out for DOT portable scales. You will be able to pin any portable scales, DOT "stings" and update whether Port of Entries are open or closed. Scale Buster provides truckers with critical road information to make them more aware of their surroundings and facilitate safer trucking! PRO VERSION ONLY: 30 day free trial $5.99 a month Upgrading to Scale Buster PRO will release the full potential of the application. Scale Buster PRO alerts truckers to DOT portable scale and DOT "sting" locations with instant audible and visual PUSH notifications. Scale Buster PRO gives monthly updates to our FMCSA (Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration) News Feed. This PRO-only news feed gives updated information and explanations of the ever changing FMCSA rules and regulations. Scale Buster PRO also allows users to drop and track "Favorites" Pins wherever they want to remember a great restaurant, hotel or any other location. Upgrading also gives the user a hazard view with an adjustable 1 to 100 miles radius. Scale Buster PRO also unlocks gas & rest stops, hotels, restaurants in addition to sending instant audible and visual PUSH notifications for traffic accidents, road hazards or road construction zones. Finally, upgrading to Scale Buster PRO will hide those annoying ad banners that drive you crazy!

  • Not Ready For Prime Time

    Heard this app advertised on the Dave Nemo show. Nothing appears to work: upgrade to pro not functioning, provides no info other than a basic name and address for the sites it has pinned, radius is lagging. I'll stick to my directories and plain old eyesight.
  • Could be better

    By Jason-WX4JCW
    App is lacking in several areas, for one several scales are missing, what does the pro version offer?, upgrade to pro not working at all
  • The only DOT portable scale/inspection/ sting location app.

    By Kkaump3
    This app lets us share the location of DOT portable scales, mobile inspections and stings. Works great.

    What a joke! I have to pay and update scale statuses, so you can charge other people? Why would I do that while there is a free TruckerPath? You focusing on "portable scales" but how many of them there ? For 5 years of OTR driving I have seen them maybe 5 times! You guys waste a lot of money. Sheep will not survive with wolfs!

  • Works great!

    By Rex Savage
    This is the app I’ve been waiting for. I wanted/needed an app the locates portable scales and that is what this does. It’s simple and easy to use and the best part is that it just works!
  • Great App!!!!

    By Jcolejkj
    This app has worked better and provides so much more then the other ones I have tried. Very user friendly and updates constantly so I'm always informed on what is around me.
  • Review of Scale Buster

    By KetterGuy
    This is the absolute best app for identifying portable scales and DOT stings. This will save you a lot of time and headaches.
  • Don't get it!!!

    By Mirtdover
    Not worth the money. It will pop up and say you are within range of a scale. But never shows where it's at. Take my word it's a joke!
