Here you will find the latest features, improvements, and bug fixes for Driver Companion.
Note: The features available to you within Driver Companion will depend on your company's configuration of the app, and the current version you are using.
Job Offer Distance and Time
If enabled by your office, the job offer screen will now display the estimated distance and time to the pickup location from your position. Cosmetic changes to the job details icons have also been made.
If a promotion is applied to a job, you will now have clear visibility of the price breakdown, including what amount will be credited to you and the exact amount to collect from the customer. On the job information bar, you will see a golden icon.
When you open the job information pop up (and in other places when the price of the job is displayed), you will see a breakdown of the fare.
Before completing the job, you will receive an alert on your fare screen. This will ask you to confirm whether the promotion has been successfully applied, along with a breakdown of how much money you need to collect from the customer and how much you will be credited.
Job Code Search
If enabled by your company, you can now allocate a booking to yourself using the booking code provided by the passenger.
To do this, go to the right-hand side menu and look for the “Job code search” icon.
Then enter the code provided by the passenger.
If their code is valid, you will be presented with a list of matching jobs. To see the details of the job, simply select it from the list and tap on ‘Confirm’ to allocate the job.
Magnetic Card Reader Support
If your company supports loyalty cards, you can now connect any magnetic card reader to the headphone jack socket on your phone, and swipe the cards rather than typing the numbers in.
There are new settings in the left-hand side menu to control if the headphone jack is used exclusively for the magnetic card reader or not.
What's New section
There is a new icon on the left-hand side menu called ‘What’s new’. This will display the changes and features introduced in the new Driver Companion version.
Live Meter Mode
Driver Companion now supports meter tariffs configured on the dispatch system side. These new tariffs support waiting time charges in minutes and seconds.
Job Details Cosmetic Changes
We have replaced words with icons for some of the details of the active jobs. When expanding to the full job details, these icons are displayed along with a further information option at the top of the window.
- This version also comes with performance and stability improvements, operational enhancements, several minor bug fixes and updated Croatian translation.
Announcement: Get ready for the next version... We are introducing a significant number of changes and features in our upcoming version. For those using Driver Companion in landscape mode, please be aware that this mode will be discontinued due to performance and stability issues, and you will need to switch to portrait mode. To do this, go to settings on the left-hand menu and unselect "Landscape Screen Orientation".
