New TRUCKER1 Version with RoadTweet

1st Guard released version 1.4 of TRUCKER1 today. There are some cool new features. Here are some highlights:

RoadTweet is a new tool that will let you tweet as your driving down the road... hands free!! So you set it to tweet every 5 minutes or so and turn on whether you want speed, altitude and direction to be included and off it goes. Very cool feature and smart to keep the truckers hands on the wheel.

The old funtion they had called HUD (or heads up display) is now working in a more conventional way. this is on the two speedometers and mirrors the display. Idea is that you lay the phone down on your dash with a cradle and you can see the speed in your windshield. This is something that lincolns and some corvettes had over the years.

It is great that a truck insurance company like 1st Guard gives this tool away. I mean the primary purpose is to get coverage and claim tools in their customers hands, but most of these other tools cost $1 on the app store so at FREE it's a great value.
