4. Find the 'flying android' icon in 'Apps' and move to the bottom right of your main screen.


5. FINALLY, AND MOST IMPORTANTLY, YOU HAVE CONTROL OVER YOUR GPS TRACKING

HOWEVER!

Only 'CHECK IN' when you are available to take calls from customers.

WHY?

  1. Because if you are unavailable and a customer uses the map to call and picks you, you have blocked the call from going to an AVAILABLE DRIVER, thus compromising the system.
  2. When a manager or dispatcher calls you to service a fare, the first question should not be, 'Are you Available.' It should be assumed that if you are on the map you are going to pick up your phone for a call.

How to Be a Call-A-Cab Driver

Compete Directly with UBER!


PROMOTE, PROMOTE, PROMOTE

If each driver shows customers the Homescreen for www.taxiabq.com and how to access the GPS Map, in time we will have thousands of regular customers.

Also, show them how easy it is to add the Call-A-Cab icon to their smartphone homescreen. See photo below!

SETTINGS

Sending Interval is Default at 1 Minute

Tracking ID will be texted to you by the Map Manager.

Smart Sending pauses the '1 Minute' interval when parked for long periods of time

Hot GPS uses a lot of battery power, so let's leave that unchecked

Auto Interval increases GPS location updates with speed

Auto Start on Powerup is always checked

Use Network Location? This helps when GPS signals are weak

3. Text your manager for your unique tracking ID and 'copy/paste' ID# into the Settings Panel.

2. Once downloaded, Install the app. You will be prompted to go to Security and Check the Unknown Sources box.
