The CoyoteGO mobile app has almost the exact same functionality as the desktop version, only the experience is designed specifically for your smartphone.

Differences Between CoyoteGO Desktop and the CoyoteGO Mobile App

Though the functionality is almost the same, there are few small differences:

  • To properly use CoyoteGO on your mobile device, you will need to download the CoyoteGO app in the App Store or in Google Play. Though you can access CoyoteGO with a web browser on your mobile device, we strongly recommend you download the app for a user-friendly experience. Desktop users do not need to download anything.
     
  • The CoyoteGO mobile app will prompt users to select "enable location" upon logging in. You will not be able to search and book loads unless you enable your device’s location.
     
  • Currently, users can only access the My Fleet functionality in the desktop version of CoyoteGO.

 

Frequently Asked Questions: CoyoteGO Desktop vs. Mobile App

 

Q: Do I need a separate login or account for the CoyoteGO desktop version and mobile app?

No, you will use the same CoyoteGO account for desktop and mobile app.
 

Q: Can dispatchers use the CoyoteGO mobile app?

Yes, the CoyoteGO mobile app has 5 separate user setters: driver, dispatcher, driver-dispatcher, owner-operator and admin.

It depends on their setting. Users with the driver setting cannot view available loads, rates or book loads. If your driver has a driver-dispatcher or owner-operator setting, then yes, they can.
