FAQ

What is TruxMap?

TruxMap is a live map of all the roaming food trucks in the city. Once a food truck has scheduled a stop through its Twitter account, a marker of theirs will automatically be generated on TruxMap.

How does it work?

TruxMap is constantly monitoring the tweets of all the food trucks, detecting the addresses and times for when and where they'll be serving. Once we can be reasonably certain that a truck has intended to schedule a stop and that we have the correct information, a new marker will appear on the map.

Are the trucks guaranteed to be where you have them plotted?

No. We don't know much more than you would be able to discern by reading the truck's twitter feed. The app has been throroughly tested, however, it is not flawless. For this reason, we ask that you use common sense before driving to Nova Scotia to track down a Los Angeles food truck.

Why does the location on the map not match what I see in the tweet?

When the geocoding service can't find a particular address, it will place the marker next to City Hall. For Los angeles, this is Downtown on 1st and Main. If you see that a truck is parked near City Hall, be a little skeptical.

I know of a truck that you're not tracking. How can I get that added?

Send me an e-mail at info@truxmap.com and I can add it for you.

Note: TruxMap is designed to be viewed with Google Chrome . It'll work fine with Firefox as well.
